The CoolPix S3000 is a type of camera that Nikon has always done well, a simple, easy-to-use point and shoot camera aimed at casual and social photographers. It's a pretty little thing, and is available in a range of seven colours including champagne silver, magenta, green, blue, orange, red and the rather more sober matt black seen here. It is an exceptionally small camera, measuring just 94.3 x 55.9 x 19.0mm, making it slightly longer but a couple of millimetres thinner and less tall than the S570. It is also very light, weighing only 116g including battery and memory card. Nonetheless the build quality is excellent, with an attractive and well-finished all-metal body. The rounded shape and flush-folding lens make it an ideal choice for slipping into a pocket or handbag for a night out.
