Summary: I've been a camera buff for the last 45 years. I purchased my first digital camera in 2002. It was a Canon and it was a very good camera. I then got a Sony Cybershot and it was the worst piece of junk I've owned! Like a fool, I bought another one on line and it had the same problems. My wife bought me a Nikon D80 and that thing would just quit working sometimes. I see from reviews online that many people have that same problem with the D80.
Used Nikon Coolpix 3200 Received From Seller 26 Sept 2012

Summary: I'm a point and shoot kind of guy, not a photography geek. My picture taking is mostly limited to family events and photos of pets. You should take that into consideration when evaluating this review. The Coolpix 3200 I received was in like new condition and functioned flawlessly in my initial 8 hours of testing the unit. The camera came with no USB cable, manual, software or other accessories.
Summary: I've had this camera since the fall of 2004 (it's July 2012 now!) and never had any problem with it except for a clicking noise on video playback. That was an easy fix after checking online (put the camera in video mode, hit the menu button, select the S-AF auto focus mode button, select S-AF SINGLE AF and no more clicking! Apparently the clicking noise is the auto focus continually focusing in the other mode.
Summary: I've had this camera for about a year and I love it! The features and functions are easy to use, downloading and prnting pictures is a snap, batteries last a long time. I can't think of a single complaint! An excellent camera for a low price!
