Summary: I bought the 3200 new and it was a love hate relationship. It was an early adopter model with many drawbacks. Its dismal batery life was only matched by its lathargic performance. in other words it ate up batterys quick and took pictures S L O W L Y. It is now relegated to service as the kids camera when batterys are plentiful.
Summary: This is a pretty good little camera. It was my first digital camera...a christmas present last year. It has had some good use. It's great for a beginner or something light to take on a trip--I got tired of lugging around my SLR, tripod, bag, lenses, etc. I would actually maybe give this 3 3/4 ;) stars, but that is not an option.
Summary: Aside from the poor picture quality that you get when taking indoor pictures (or anywhere with little light exposure), this camera is GREAT! It took beautiful, and lively pictures outdoors, but I was extremely disappointed with the picture quality when pictures were being taken indoors or where there wasn't too much light.
Summary: First off let me say that I love this camera. It really is a lot of fun to take pictures, especially with all the wonderful features it has to offer. However, there are a few problems I have with it. For one, after you take a picture, sometimes there is a black screen for about 8 seconds and you can't do anything until the screen comes back. Maybe it takes a little while for the picture to properly register in the play menu, I'm not sure.
Summary: I had my Nikon 3200 for 3 weeks when it malfunctioned. Circuit city would not take it back, so I paid over $10 to ship it to nikon They returned it the last week of September, with more problems than it had when I sent it. After they ignored my two emails, and a letter to the company, I returned it again. As of this date, October 13, 2004, I have not heard form them. DO NOT BUY NIKON... UNLESS YOU WISH TO SPEND YOUR TIME TRYING TO CONTACT THEM!!!
Pros: Decent image quality, Many features and scene modes. Compact & Lightweight. Easy on my Rechargable Batteries. Panaramic Mode is good.
Cons: Looooooooooooooong time to wait between shots. Expect to wait between 5-7 seconds after taking one shot before you can take another one. That SUCKS !! Quality of images is comparable to my previous Coolpix 2100 (2.1MP), since this is a 3.2 MP That SUCK
Pros: Good little camera. Loved it initially. Bought it for its size/prize/zoom. Wanted to buy Canon SD110, but it had less zoom.
Cons: Day pictures are good, but the camera gives a 'Blurred Image' error for 1/3 day pictures. The pictures really are blurred when you open them on your PC. Night pictures are HORRIBLE!!!. Not even a single good picture. They are all distorted and blurred. No
Excerpt: "I have had this camera for a number of years now, and have found a number of advantages as well as a number of disadvantages.
