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
Summary: I've had this camera for over four years. I'll start by saying the picture quality for outdoors, well lit subjects and macro shots are outstanding. This camera really shines outside. Get to know the menu and some of the features about the white balance settings and you can make some drastic adjustments to your picture quality and color accuracy.
Summary: Too fuzzy for my tastes as a point and shoot for people pictures, seems to expand everything in the middle and just not that sharp. 3x digital zooms are horrible. BUT after putting it on a tripod, putting it on time delay and setting up a light tent, with floods, I was able to take the most beautifully sharp product shots. Produced top notch photos. What I really needed it for was product shots anyway. Am happy with the ones I got.
Summary: some have said this camera gives bad focus... its because they are using the camera wrong!!!! In poor light conditions it adjusts its exposure time and shows a warning that the picture may become blurred. Its not the focus that causes this but rather the motion blur during the extra time required. The Best Shot Selector gives an easy solution... it takes upto 10 pics and then automatically selects the clearest picture.. giving crystal clear results.
Summary: I purchased the Coolpix 7900 as a second digital camera; my other camera is a Coolpix 5000 (semi-pro). Although the 5000 is a more flexible camera, I wanted a camera that was simpler to use than the 5000. Overall, the 7900 is an excellent camera; however, the caveat in product reviews about less than desirable low light performance are correct.
Summary: First, let me say that I am a great Nikon fan. I bought the 7900 after owning the 3200 because I was seduced by the 7 megapixels. I agree with the reviewers who contend that the camera cannot always find its focus. Moreover, the general quality of the pictures is ... well ... inconsistent. Sometimes you get an eye-popping shot; othertimes, under very similar conditions, a disappointing shot. On the whole, there is much to commend.
Summary: I am a PhD student and work with microscopes, dissecting scopes, laser microscopes, electron microscopes and several digital imaging software programs daily. I get to use a lot of high-end optics. I also am an avid photographer and hiker and spend a lot of time taking pictures both outside and inside in both high and low light conditions.
Summary: It is certainly perfect for a point-and-shoot digital. It is easy to use even if you don't read the manual, but when you do you will find that it has many different ways of manipulating shutter speed and light. It takes some getting used to if you are just switching from an old SLR, like I did, but you can pretty quickly figure out how to get the best shot by changing the modes. For me, the biggest advantage is the size.
