So, you can slip into your pocket easily. No hand grip available on this camera, but you will find dotter area on the rear side as you thumb rest. The body is made of metal with four different finishing colors: red, silver, blue, black.

We can say that this camera does not have physical improvement as you will find identical body and button arrangement, just like the predecessor. As it’s shown on the Nikon CoolPix S3200 manual, the top side is simple loaded with on/off button. There are also shutter release button encircled with zoom rocker. The back side is also minimalistic.

It is dominated with 2.7-in TFT LCD with resolution of 230K pixel that functions as view finder as well. The button is also standard, menu button, play back button, delete button and navigation buttons. Personally, Nikon CoolPix S3200 has exquisite design but you may find difficulty on handling.
