I recently bought a Coolpix 3500 and am very satisfied with it. But why does the reviewer think that the design of the 2500 appeals to women??? I am female and also like the dark grey design of the 3500 much better than the less classy blue. Should I now doubt my gender identity??..
I'm getting some estrange circles of light in almost half the pictures I made using flash.
Also the red eye reduction is almost ineffective it only drains the battery faster..
Besides this, it looks nice, it's very easy to use and some (not all) pictures looks great. I'm having to use the 2048 image size and Normal quality to get best quality/size results...
Check out this post and it's replies an see if you are seeing the same thing as in the posted photo - if not, post a sample of what you are describing to help in possible explanations Rev. David Legg "White Circles!" 12/30/2002 10:35am wjmc..
Thanks for your interest. I think they're the same 'light circles'. but due to the frequency and intensity in my case (50% of all my flash pictures) I'm thinking about 'dust' particles and a sort of lens aberration problem (in my particular camera lens) at the same time. maybe nikon needs a better quality control ????..
I'm can't decide between the 3500 or the Minolta Dimage XI or the Canon S230 Do you really get used to the lack of traditional viewfinder on the 3500? I kept putting it up to my face....
I can't decide between Canon A70 and Nikon Coolpix 3500.
I love the roll feature (self-shot) in coolpix3500 but the slide feature of the power switch is not practical. Canon A70 is a good buy in terms of features and price but it doesn't have any self-shot feature. Any advise please?..
I'm having some problems with my NIKON Coolpix 3500. I stopped relying on it because it seems to have humidity problems and I get wet spots on 90% of my pictures no matter where I am. Those wet spots are inside de lens and so I cant reach them. I only have my camera for 2 months and Im really disappointed. The company where I bought the camera says it is normal for digital cameras to have this kind of behaviour. Is this normal? Jean..
I got the 3100 three days ago and have taken 465 shots. I am very happy with it. I was considering buying the A70 but it was out of stock in all my local stores, saying that Canon had to "fix" something about the lens, I don't know. What I do know is that I'm quite content with the Nikon. I have 8 2100 maH NiMH Energizer batteries (costing altogether 30 bucks)with a really slow 4 battery charger. The batteries last all afternoon with lcd on.
I don't mind the rubber usb cover. The size of the camera fits nicely in my hand, though I do have small hands. My only complaint with it, is the start up time. Once you turn on the camera it takes 5.5 seconds for you to be able to take a picture.
The lcd is bright,(you can adjust that too), and not easily scratched. The pictures are clear,crisp and bright. I took it to the zoo today and did notice that the focus can't get past cage bars or netting, this is probably true with most cameras. Some of the animals moved too fast to get a clear shot, I realized I could just use the movie function. I don't mind that the movies don't have sound. I won't use that function much.
I have pictures online at you will have to click a picture twice to get it's full size.

I'm never going to install it. I just open the folder with the pics,move them to a picture folder on m y hard drive, review and rename them. I've noticed with other digital cameras that the photo software included with the cameras is crappy. I use Microsoft Picture It. Paint shop pro tends to be too technical...
Coolpix 3500: I am getting ' This card can not be used' error. It refuses to go. can not take any picutures. Any help appreciated..
