Summary: I was on a business trip to do a final walk-through of a large installation and forgot my camera ( Nikon Coolpix 5900 5MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom , 5.1MP) so I ran out to CompUSA and got this one for $89.99 and was excited about it.
Summary: I PURCHASED THIS CAMERA FOR MY VACATION IN JULY AND I HAVE REALLY LIKED IT FOR THE MOST PART. MY ONLY REAL COMPLAINT IS THAT THE BATTERY & SD CARD COMPARTMENT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO OPEN. I AM 66-YRS OLD AND MY FINGERS DON'T WORK SO WELL TO OPEN THIS AREA UP.
Summary: We purchased this camera for our business in lieu of toting our nicer camera for quick property photos. Camera takes a great picture and does video. We haven't tested the video just yet. Camera handles dim situations relatively well, not without moderate pixelation, but I am nonetheless impressed.
Summary: The picture quality is good but the lag time between pushing the button especially with the flash making a bright light while it gets ready for the shot destroys any spontaneous shots especially of my animals or child.
Summary: This is a good camera for the price. It is simple to use and takes clear, crisp pictures. Also, the battery life is good. And the price makes it affordable to take good pictures. Just keep in mind, that this camera works well if your subject is stationary. It is not for action shots.
Summary: this camera eats batteries, i found the controls/settings a bit confusing and i'm reasonablied experianced with cameras,it's fairly bulky for a compact camera.it takes fairly good pics,but theres better cameras out there around the same money. jackie
