I never changed mine, but with these newer Coolpix cameras I actually don't use autoflash that much. I set the ISO on 200 for outside and 400 for indoors. It seems to work out well.

This answer was speedy but useless!

Looking at tests posted on the web, the optimum ISO would appear to be 100 or 200.

I bought this camera to have in my pocket to take snapshots for the web. It is more than adequate for that purpose.

For serious photography I use Canon digitals and L series lenses.

Please reset the camera: MENU > SETUP > RESET ALL. Also, verify the settings that you have for Image Mode (seepage # 60 of the user's manual) and make sure you are using an approved memory card for the COOLPIX S3300 (see page # 19).

Cameras do not have dpi, they have pixels. Printers have dpi. The pixel count in a photo depends on it's size.

Question

Increasing 720p video length?

I really like the 720p quality for what I film. Only problem is its 8 minutes compared to 28 minutes on low quality. With a 32gb SDHC card I know I can film and refilm for many hours. I just want to know, is it possible to increase the HD time longer than 8 minutes and 11 seconds to about 30 minutes like the lowest setting?

Question

When I first turned it on it said "Lens Error"

It did this the first time I turned it on, so I turned it off and back on. Then it worked. Should I be worried at all?

Also when I turn it on it makes a sound...a very flimsy sound and I can hear the lens cover moving. Is this normal and should I forget about it?
