Summary: I first bought this Nikon Coolpix in the 1990's for (get this) $826.00. Digitals for the novice were just getting some attention. At the same time I bought one of the first HP Photosmart printers. The combo of these two were a big wakeup for someone who loved 35mm.
Fantastic older Nikon Digital Camera for amazing macro photos!

Summary: This is a fabulous Camera, I actually bought the same one 10 years ago, and am still using it on my site! I purchased this one as backup, should my old one finally die. I love the quality of the photos, the macro lens in the best for close up and Nikon is the best camera maker in my opinion.
A nice solid digital camera-nice pics-ease of use.

Summary: This one will get you started! Very nice pics for a 2 MP camera. A perfect camera for starting out or as a reliable spare. Too large for a pocket unless you have a coat with big pockets. If you're not concerned with extra large sized photos than this is the one for you!
Summary: I purchased a Nikon Coolpix 800 back in 1999. It was my first camera, and I used it as often as possible. It was a very decent "point and shoot" camera, and I was also able to add a screw-on wide-angle lens that increased the productivity of the camera.
Summary: Although an older Camera by Nikon, it has included many of the more expensive aspects, expected fron Nikon! The only thing was a poor (Battery Door Cover).. being made from plastic, has a tendency to break!
Summary: This was bought as a replacement for the same model camera that we flat wore out. It is for sure not at even the mid point of today's technology, but it is a nice solid camera for general purpose use. I also own a far more sophisticated Nikon for my more demanding use.
