With a Twist.
Now you have two cool choices.
Effective Megapixels
Ever wonder what life would be like if others could see the world
through your eyes? Just get yourself a Nikon digital camera like the
cool-blue COOLPIX 2500 (2.0 effective megapixels) or cool-grey
COOLPIX 3500 (3.2 effective megapixels) and they can. These compact, eye-catching cameras make digital photography so enjoyable
you’ll want to share your twist on life with everyone. Plus, their innerswivel lens designs let you take photos from all sorts of angles. So
when you’re ready for a little twist, get yourself a little COOLPIX.
Effective Megapixels
Taken with COOLPIX 3500.
Designed for on-the-go shooting.
Lens shut away, the COOLPIX 2500’s and COOLPIX 3500’s smooth sleek
bodies will turn heads. The combination of mirror-finish metal and cool
blue or sophisticated grey makes these cameras look just as good as the
pictures they take. Hidden away inside, the powerful rechargeable battery gives you up to 80 minutes of continuous use.
With COOLPIX, great results are built in. Both models feature a 3x zoom
Nikkor lens and other Nikon digital advances to deliver crisp images and brilliant colour. The COOLPIX 2500 boasts 2.0 effective megapixel resolution that
is ideal for all-round use. The COOLPIX 3500’s even better with an impressive
3.2 effective megapixel resolution for stunning prints at up to A4 size. It’s the
legendary Nikon quality squeezed into an up-to-date COOLPIX design.
Both COOLPIX cameras offer various shooting modes that make getting
great shots easy. Auto mode is ideal for most photo situations, and the
12 Scene Modes help make the most out of creative situations. Just
choose the right mode for the scene at hand, and the camera will handle
all adjustments for you automatically.
Pressing the Quick Review button brings the last shot up onto the
screen immediately without having to switch to Play mode. You can view
the image either in quarter- or full-size, and if you don’t like it, just delete
it: if you do like it – show it around!

Share your twist on life.
E-mailing and Web posting your COOLPIX photos is an easy way to share life’s moments with others. Just
press the Small Picture button and the camera automatically creates a reduced-size image when in Play mode.
COOLPIX makes sending images to your computer painless. Just connect your camera to the computer
with the (supplied) USB cable and press the Transfer button. Selected images are then automatically transferred to the computer that you can then browse in thumbnail format with Nikon View 5 software (supplied).
If you want to enlarge the image for a closer look, just click on it. Nikon View 5 even lets you adjust the
colour balance or change the image size for e-mailing or Web posting. Run a slide show of selected images
and print them out directly — Nikon View 5 lets you do all this from your computer.
