Nikon's cheapest Coolpix S-line camera for 2014 still keeps the 1/2.3" sensor, though it switches over to a CCD style. It sports a nice 8x optical zoom with vibration reduction, though doesn't offer wi-fi at this price and has a smaller screen. The video quality also isn't as good. If you can find another $40, the S5300 also has more speed at 7 fps, compared to the S3600's lethargic 1.1 fps. But, if budget is an ultimate concern, the Nikon S3600 certainly isn't a horrible option, since it maintains the same sensor size as Nikon's upper end point-and-shoots.
