Summary: Description erroneous, where it said "cannot get the battery to charge" in actuality the cam powered right up and indicated "lens error" which is a mechanical problem. Parts it is, but wish I had known.
Summary: An excellent product in very decent condition. I bought it to replace my older C/P 7900 which had a frozen lens. Repairs would've cost more than my purchase price plus had other issues with the battery door. Although newer models have much bigger display screens I am thoroughly familiar with this camera so I decided to stay with what I know. It takes fantastic photos and has more features than newer cameras in same price range.
Summary: it came on time it was exacly what i was expecting ty let me know what other deals ya got the only thing is the battery doesent hold the best charge stil learning how to use it but its pretty easy to figure out
Excerpt: "I have had my Nikon Coolpix 7900 for about a year and a half now and have been very very pleased with it. It is a small, compact digital camera that offers stunning quality pictures with lots of different features. Priced at around £250 it is superb value for money and I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone! **Looks, Design and Size** As with many modern technological inventions, they have suddenly become fashion items and the same ...
Pros: Stylish, Superb Quality, Extensive features Great Value for Money
Excerpt: "I bought this as a replacement for my first digital camera as I need to take good quality pix for my website. This is an awesome camera - I wasn't let down by any of the advertising, though I had done a lot of research on this and comparable cameras in the range. This one shone above its competitors and it proved to be the right decision when I bought this little beauty. It's crammed with features you find on more expensive cameras. Ones I particlulary ...
Pros: Simple to operate, clear & intuitive interface, takes great pictures .
Cons: If you've got cobblers' thumbs, you may find the buttons a tad on the small side !
Summary: Having used SLR Nikons (both digital and film) for many years I decided to buy this as a replacement for an ageing Olympus Camedia. What a mistake! The first 40-50 pictures were generally fine - it hasn't taken one since! It developed a fault of turning itself on and off at will and showed an instant desire to hibernate when the shutter button was pressed. Of course, a new replacement is no longer available so I returned it to Nikon for repair.
Summary: I am very pleased with my 7900 after two months. The pictures I am getting from it are great, although you do need to turn up the image sharpening from the default setting. My six year old daughter has used it and has also been able to get great results from it. Terrific as a family camera. Pocketable. Blindingly easy to use. Does good movies too. I am very pleased indeed and would recommend the camera so long as you only plan on using it in normal lighting conditions.
Summary: If you want a camera to take candid quick photos of people then don't get this. The slightest movement causes the picture to blur. Imagine trying to get a small group of people to hold that spontaneous pose! I am really disappointed by all the unposed photos of people. In fact I have to delete all of them. That said, I do have some fantastic outdoor scenery shots. Basically buildings or mountains which don't move - great. Anything else - don't bother.
Summary: The indoor shots are underexposed and you need to waste time with the 'D-Lighting' software trying to sort them out. I thought it might have been due to mine being one of the early models, but obviously not. I intend to take it up with Nikon, rather than throw my money down the drain.
