Good, but not worth the cost

  • 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...

Expected more from this camera, buy a SLR

  • 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.

Great, 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.

Capable, but flawed instrument.

  • 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.

  • Summary: This camera leaves a lot to be desired.
  • Pros: The camera is small and easy to take along.
  • Cons: Poor focusing. I have yet to get a nice sharp picture. The images are very noisey in low light situations.

Bit of a disappointment

  • Summary: Get it for grandma or soccer mom if you have $800 to spare. The picture quality is awesome if it happens to be in focus.
  • Pros: Battery life between charges, exposure options
  • Cons: That'd be the auto focus mechanism.

"Good image, zoom(!); VR very helpful."

CNET
31 January 2005
  • Pros: Vibration Reduction very helpful for pictures, especially with zoom. Good battery life. "Extra" JPEG mode reduces loss, but doesn't take as long as raw/tiff (equivalent).
  • Cons: SLOW to focus, SLOW to transfer images to card. Unreliable focal plane selection.
