On the cp3700 there is a picture rotation function when viewing on the lcd screen, but does that function works while viewing on a television ( AV out)?.

I purhcased the Nikon 3700, relying on the recommendations and favourable comments by Dave. I am quite happy with the result, except the SD memory card is a bit too expensive...

Hi there,.

I have a problem with the Nikon 3700 in night shots. When I was in sydney taking the night scenery shot, I find that the camera does not take clear pics. I took a couple of shots even with the camera resting on a stable table and the picture still turn out very dark and lack of sharp focus or blurry. I tried switching to the night scenery mode, museum mode, fireworks mode but still produces bad results. Can anyone pls advise me on what is to be done with the camera to take good night shots? As much as the camera takes GREAT day shots, I was wondering if that is what digital cameras are only good for?..

Yes you r right.u cant take sharp night shots b/c you dont have open ISO settings which add up the noises in your pics and second you dont have long shutter speed upto 10 and 15 secs to take sharp night pics as this 3700 has auto shutter speed upto 4 in order to have clear and sharp night shots my advise is to either call nikon support center to add noise reduction feature and Open ISO features thru Firmware update(as still I m waiting after first firmware update) or change the camera...

Just purchased cp3700. Took about 40 pictures, all marked for transfer, but only 4 transfer using the Nikon software with USB card reader. I can read the card as a separate drive and download all of them, but don't have shooting info this way. Also, how do I set it to do rotation by orientation in lcd playback? Many thanks. Any other places to get info on using this little camera appreciated...

Comment #10

I saw the 1.2 issue on Nikon site. Tried for several hours to download and write it to SD card to load into camera. It would download in zip format, but couldn't get it to unzip and load onto card. I am familiar with zip files, so don't know what I was doing wrong. Any additional help appreciated. Thanks, Jean..

The Coolpix 3700 review here states that the camera has five image modes: "Options are 3M High (2,048 x 1,536 pixels), 3M Normal (2,048 x 1,536 pixels), 2M Normal (1,600 x 1,200 pixels), PC Screen (1,024 x 768 pixels), and TV Screen (640 x 480 pixels)." However, in the "Storage Capacity" section on the "Picky Details" page, the camera is said to have 12 modes: "Fine", "Normal" and "Basic" for each of the four resolutions available. According to the latter information, I could take, say, a 1600 x 1200 photo with the "Fine" setting, with an approximate compression of 6:1. By contrast, the reviewer at states that "the High setting, a 1:4 compression ratio, is only offered at the largest image size and not at the alternate sizes". I'm puzzled by these contradictory observations. Could someone explain this to me?..

Comment #12

I noticed that "Night Scene" is not the best way to take night shot picture. Switch to manual mode. Disable the flash. Increase the exposure compensation to +2.0 and change the white balance to incandescent (this will change color to something that look like in the day). This is the best quality I obtained with this camera. I hope Nikon will enable more manual setting with the next firmware because this camera is really cool!!..

Comment #15

I used my 3700 in my recent trip and found that the picture came out from the landscape mode is not sharp. Any reason to this?..

Comment #16

According to me why your pics in landscape mode are not sharp1) may be sharp mode wil be set to auto or it will be off 2) you r not using a tripod or any other rested place for camera. 3) or the lens will not be in right position (since you r using an auto scene mode ,may be this will not be a problem) 4)ISO warningand finally as I dont know either the pics are not sharp or they r blurred so I cant comment on other possiblities...
