Broken

Amazon Customer "pachomp", Amazon
7 December 2009
  • Summary: This camera has a built in zoom lens. If the lens breaks, you don't have a camera anymore. My lens is failing to zoom and now I have to buy a new camera although the rest of the camera works fine. It's money down the drain. Before the zoom malfunction, the camera took great pictures on a perfect day, but night time, indoor, and action pictures were almost always blurry even if you put it on the night time, indoor, or action settings.

A good camera but horribly unreliable

Zvi Schreiber "mzs", Amazon

  • Summary: I loved this camera but I have had to send it back 3 times for the infamous "system error 2" design fault which plagues many of these. The repair service is slow - the camera has been in repair 50% of the year I have had it.

Good, but not perfect

  • Summary: First, I love many things about this camera, most of them are mentioned in other reviews here, so I won't repeat too many of them. I especially appreciate the vibration reduction. It's tough to go from this camera to another one and deal with a shaky zoom. But that's what I'm doing now because: Bad: For the second time in less than a year, my camera's in the shop (under warranty) being fixed because, out of the blue, a "lens error" stopped all functions on my camera.

In the shop

  • Summary: I purchased a new Coolpix 8800 on March 16, 2005. I sent it in for service just two weeks later, on April 3rd. It has now been in the shop for more than 6 weeks. The main problems were severe focusing problems. A minor problem was that the cable to transfer pictures to the computer didn't fit securely to the camera and I needed three hands to hold the cable to the camera and manipulate the mouse at the same time.

Graves problemas de enfoque

  • Summary: Tengo esta cámara y me he llevado una gran decepción. No consigo que utilizando el zoon en el intervalo 5X-10X enfoque en AF. La cámara centra la imagen y la vuelve a perder. El enfoque manual es de adorno no sirve para nada. Mi consejo si al guien esta pensando comprarla es que examine estos puntos atentamente. Una verdadera lastima porque en lo demas tiene muy buena calidad.
