Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix 5400 is not a simple camera to use. I don't like the fact that you have to change the settings everytime you go outside or inside etc. I wish there was just one auto mode. I definately hate the fact that you have to charge the camera quite often even if the camera has not been in use. I boght the camera last year at costco when it was $499.00. I don't this digital camera at all!
Excerpt: This Nikon is handy and useful camera for amateur photographers like me. As usual this camera too has auto,scene,manual,programed auto modes for taking pictures. But I like the scene mode options more. Because it has fifteen scenes which are common in our day to day life such as Portrait, Party, Beach/snow, Landscape, Fireworks, Sports etc. I used the Museum mode to take photos during my visit to statue of Liberty. The photos doesn’t look blurred.
Pros: Good balance, nice viewfinder with dual positioning, very comfortable zoom controls, and shape of camera makes for easy holding: I have slight palsy, sharp clear pictures . $200 rebate, cost ca $200!
Cons: Have't really had any ... but I think that I will buy an extra battery, just in case
