Introduction

Nikon's S3300 is an affordable alternative to the rest of the company's extensive Coolpix lineup. Debuting in February of this year as a replacement for the S3100, the S3300 has received upgrades to optical zoom, megapixel count, and image stabilization; all while retaining that coveted 140-dollar price point.

This camera is far from perfect, but a few conveniences make it a decent choice for light-duty photography. The S3300 is available now in silver, black, pink, purple, and red.
