Summary: While I have been in computer graphics for many years, I have not taken the plunge into digital cameras until now. I spent several weeks researching every camera out there... The 4x zoom on the Nikon is not as good as the 10x ... but the digital zoom is quite amazing.
Summary: Strengths: 1. 4x optical zoom. Most digicams in this price range only have 3x, and most lower-priced cameras only have a 2x or no zoom at all. 2. Pop-up flash. Many owners of the Coolpix 990 and 950 have significant red-eye trouble.
Summary: i am very satisfied with the nikon coolpix 995. the image quality is superb, with great color accuracy and great sharpness. the swivel design has been even more useful than i had imagined. the quick review feature allows one to zoom in on images and scroll while viewing the lcd.
Pros: larger than new coolpix 4500, shutter lag, no audio on quicktime movies
Cons: larger than new coolpix 4500, shutter lag, no audio on quicktime movies
Summary: I'm very pleased with the camera, and I believe it was offered at a great price... This is the third Nikon I've owned, but this is my first digital camera. Previous to it, I scanned negatives and slides into my computer. My main concern was picture quality. The Coolpix 995 makes excellent 8x10s.
Summary: This is the best digital camera I have ever owned or tried. For the people that gave this camera a bad review, read the owners manual, so you can learn what this camera is capable of. I was AMAZED!!! Oh by the way, I own a Canon powershot G2, nice camera. The 995 is BETTER.
Summary: I bought mine about 2 months ago and have had great results with it. It's not quite the quality of my 35mm or my medium format but I DO LOVE the ability to shoot and immediately download the images to the computer and print them out.
Summary: I am new to digital cameras (though not to computers), and have used only simple film cameras. I intended to purchase an entry-level digital camera, but my husband encouraged me to get something better. We compared cameras, their features, and read reviews. The Nikon 995 was our choice.
Summary: I found a comment of Robert F. Hume is very useful for me. In the same situation of taking a shot of a tree with green leaves with a blue sky as a background and a sun behind, I saw a kind of "grain" along the line of leaves edge and the sky.
Summary: A couple of weeks ago I gave my new CoolPix 995 a five-star rating after very limited use. Now, after a week of taking a lot of pictures I discovered some shortcomings: (1) In only about a week I lost the cover cap for the auxiliary flash sync terminal, and since I had not even attempted another...
