Summary: the person who sold it to me, made sure like i requested, that the item arrived on time. and went above and beyond my expectations by including a battery charger with the purchase, and an sd card. definitely recommend doing business with him !

Summary: I still have this camera to this day I just can't really part with it it was a special limited edition model as far as I can tell the regular additions are are ready up to five different models and I can't see that they've improved that much from this special edition it was the first to use the CMOS sensor in the series one of the only ones that I know of to have a fitting widescreen viewscreen and back and unlike its new were additions of the series it doesn't go crazy...
Summary: I purchased this camera several years ago as a "bridge" between a point and click and a DSLR. It has proven itself to be absolutely perfect for that function. I have shown it no mercy, and it has lived up to nearly every challenge. Not great in low-light, but I knew that when I bought it. It has been everywhere I go, in weather extremes, landscapes, portraits, macro, general, live-action, you name it.
Need another camera ever be needed? I don't think so.

Summary: I've been an amateur photographer since the 1950s and have owned many different cameras of all types. After the digital revolution I owned a couple of digicams but lately I've had a variety of mostly Canon PowerShot point-and-shoot cameras such as the S3 IS on up to the SX 20IS. When I'm out on the street I carry a camera mainly to be ready when a UFO appears or if I'm ever a witness to a news-worthy event since some individuals who were at the right place at the right...
Summary: I have had this camera for sometime now and it has served me well.. I am used to the quality of bigger cameras, so I am not completly happy with this one in that way.. My little Canon A95 that I used for backpacking finally died of old age and many thousands of photos, maybe 200,000 or more.. I bought this as a replacement.. It is heavier and the photos are not nearly as crisp, but it works.. So..
Awesome camera (love the zoom range, fold-out screen & full HD video)

Summary: It's a gem! Love the fast C-mos sensor and full HD video with designated record button. AA batteries are a plus for me because even outside of 'civilization' I can find AA batteries if need be. For the most part, I use rechargeable, ultra low discharging batteries, and get about 400 shots on one set of batteries, using the zoom a lot, but not the flash. I love that it's a point-and-shoot camera with the capability of manual settings.
Shoot RAW format photos with this (4) AA battery powered camera!!!
5 January 2013
Summary: This camera is one of the few cameras that uses 4 AA batteries for its operation. Two notable features of this camera is the manual control and the ability to shoot raw pictures. Instead of the typical CCD sensor, this camera uses a CMOS sensor. To maximize use, lithium-ion batteries should be used instead of alkaline, if not, users will cycle through 4 batteries every 30 minutes. Nikon has (newer) Coopix L610 and Coolpix L810 that have similar features.
Excerpt: Robust consumer camera with a big zoom. In reasonable light the picture is grainy past half zoom but still useful. Quick focus with IF illuminator and quite effective for video. Good value for money and the articulated screen is great. Struggles in low light but its not a full size sensor so you cant expect much else.
