Nikon Coolpix 3700

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Nikon Coolpix 3700 is stylish in its compact aluminum body. It is the first Nikon digital camera that uses the SecureDigital (SD) memory card. Thanks to the much smaller size of the SD card, Nikon is able to shave off a few inches from the Coolpix 3500 that the 3700 is replacing.

The Coolpix 3700 adopts the long rectangular shape that is very popular and provides more surface area for a better grip. There is also now a much welcomed low-light AF assist lamp to help achieve focus lock in low-light situations.

The Nikon 3700 features 3.2 megapixels resolution, a 3x optical zoom, macro focus at 1.6 in., and 15 scene modes to cover most picture taking situations. Shutter speed ranges from 4-1/3,000 sec. Its Zoom Nikkor lens has only two apertures: F2.8 and F4.9.

The Nikon Coolpix 3700 should appeal to point-and-shoot photographers.
