Summary: I recently faced the "System 2 Error" many other users. Luckily, I have a three year warranty and it was fully covered and came back within 3wks of mailing (I sent it just before Christmas so it took longer). The Pros: Excellent features Lightweight (I have small hands and cannot hold much weight) Came with a Remote control Large LCD etc...
Summary: I bought this camera few months after it came out. I like the features that it has. The Remote, the stabilization, the zoom. Why, you ask I give this camera a 3 star? well, first of all, I took many pictures with normal light. The results aren't as great as Nikon advertised. During my first use, I had pictures that for some odd reason gave ppl black lips. No, I know for sure that they weren't wearing any lipstick.
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.
Summary: I have owned this camera since March of '05, so I've had time to use it under a variety of conditions. As of today, I have shot just under 4,000 shots with favorably mixed results. The best photos are great, with good color saturation, sharpness and overall quality. I shoot at low compression JPEG, "Extra Image Quality," 8MB file-size, which translates to a usually selected ASA equivalent of 50. Even with "Vibration Reduction," I use support most of the time.
