Summary: Excellent high end consumer digital camera especialy suited for individuals needing flexibility in various exposure modes such as aperture or shutter priority,or relatively compact size (for travel or transport) with good optical zoom range (macro focus to 0.8 inches and 3x optical zoom with...
Pros: Excellent macro capability built in, good optical telephoto range, good flexibility in manual mode
Cons: Poor LCD brightness, flimsy compact flash door, poor location for compact flash door
Summary: This camera takes excellent quality digital pictures and comes with the Nikonview software which enables you to make basic edits on the pictures on your computer. It is fairly easy to use and the compact flash uploads into the computer either via a reader or directly from the camera.
Summary: Had this a little over a year, great camera--have the feeling I'm still only scratching the surface of what this thing is capable of. The Pros: 1. Oustanding image quality, great colours, etc.
Summary: Wow, what a difference. I currently sell items [online], and I've been using a HP C200 Digital Camera for the past year to take pictures of items that I was selling. It got the job done, but when it came to detailed shots and close ups, it just didn't cut it.
Summary: This is a feature packed camera that takes near-professional quality images, probably the best of all digital cameras. The manual mode allows you to adjust exposure, aperture, focus settings, etc. just like a SLR camera.

Summary: I have had my Coolpix 950 for almost a yest now. I bought it here, on amazon.com, and I'm still amazed. There are so many things you can do with it! I bought a 32 mg memory card and some rechargable batteries, too. (Well worth it!) The 32 mg is enough for me.
Summary: I got my 950 a couple of months ago after owning a cheap digicam. The difference in the photos is astronomical. I decided to purchase it because of so many positive reviews. Yes, it isn't easy to figure out the controls, but it's worth it when you do.
Summary: Amazon's review still touts this as a "top of the line" camera when Nikon released the third generation CoolPix 990 months ago. The 990 fixes all the complaints people had with the 900 and the 950 (shown here). It also ups the resolution to 2K x1500 (3.34 Megapixels). It's a fantastic camera.
Summary: The results are excellent, but getting there is difficult. It is not at all user friendly. Even the directions are difficult to access. As a research chemist who has often had to learn how to operate sophisticated scientific equipment, I found it challenging to learn.
