I found a book on Amazon that was recommended to me since there's no tips on the modes that my camera has that might benefit other Nikon Coolpix camera users. It's called Nikon Coolpix Digital Field Guide by J. Dennis Thomas and you can find it on Amazon for $14.79 + S&H. I'm thinking of purchasing it and using it to get the most out of my Coolpix S3600 that I got August 27th. I couldn't get the link to post for some reason but you can just look it up on Amazon. It's 7 years old but it should still have a lot of useful information in it anyways. Hope it helps other Coolpix users get the most out of their camera!

" It's 7 years old but it should still have a lot of useful information in it anyways."

 

Rule of thumb: Don't buy old tech books for new technology. However this may be a good general book on these point and shoots. I would also google the camera and see if there are "free" tutorials on its use.

 

If I were you, I would set that camera on P and shoot away. You can always experiment with A and S setting and play with ISO  and white balance. These cameras are great starters, so just have fun with it and don't over think the camera's abilities.

I've Googled it and also Youtube'd it to see if there were any tutorials and there are only reviews and unboxing videos. That's why I'm wanting to get this book. To go beyond just picture taking Chaswes5. I hope I didn't offend you.

Not at all. We always try and help folks find the best source of information.  I stiil think you should start shooting while you are waiting on your book.

I've taken a bunch of pics with the camera already, just haven't uploaded them onto PN yet. I have a photo album on FB titled Nikon Coolpix photos if you want to take a browse through them. I have to have my mom help me order the book but once I get it I'm going to read it thoroughly and apply it to my photos.
