Summary: 1. The camera does not have a direct viewfinder, relying only on the digital screen. Under the vast number of picture opportunities, the viewing a scene was totally (and I mean totally) useless and the picture taking was just guess work. 2.
Summary: It was time for an upgrade from my Kodak EasyShare Z7590, entirely for megapixels. My requirements were an SLR body grip, macro, and ring style menu or dial navigation rather than a wheel on top of body.
Summary: This would be a great camera if it could just take a clear picture. I got this camera on a Black Friday sale for $180 (~$50 off), and I've tried everything I can think of to make it work properly, with no success. I will be returning it this week. p.s. also read balboos' review; spot on.
Pros: Long zoom, good wide angle, lightweight for its size. Takes AAs, even non-Nikon NiCd ones (although Nikon tries their best to make you believe otherwise). Friendly user interface (a little too simplified sometimes), love the continuous sports mode. Batteries seem to last pretty well, still haven'...
Cons: ...and taking a good picture. Can't focus worth beans, and even if it does find the right focus it's still blurry. Tried every setting on this camera in at least a dozen different situations, including different zoom ranges, on a tripod, etc., and every single shot is fuzzy. Also, you can't manua...
Summary: My first Nikon - I won't say my last, but it's gone done in my esteem many notches. My much older Kodak ZD710 takes a better picture in natural incandescent light than the Nikon does with flash.
Pros: Substantial effort went into making the camera as smart as possible. The Macro mode, when set from the menu, does make extreme closeups very easy. My particular interest are (1) Macro, and (2) indoor in relatively low light conditions. Much useful on-screen info, if you want it.
Cons: I always run a new camera through my only suite of tests. The images are not sharp. It kicks into high-ISO mode far too easily - making things worse. It has its own idea on where to focus (yes, I turned the super-easy mode off). Basically, it seems Nikon put a lot of effort into making the camera...
Summary: I purchased the Nikon L100 as a replacement for an older Cannon PowerShot, and am thorughly dissapointed. Having shot professionaly with Nikon cameras for several years, I did not hesitate to trust the brand...that was a mistake.
Summary: Hopefully they make a new firmware that fixes that, but i doubt it's going to happen. not going to buy another nikon camera till i can use store bought Ni-MH battery. thats very cheap when companies do that. i should of bought the fuji camera it works with store bought Ni-MH battery.
Pros: well built, good sized, takes AA batteries not a card battery. picture quality is ok
Cons: firmware update 1.1 lets you use Ni-MH batteries, but there's a catch can't use store bought ones. you have to buy Nikon EN-MH-1 COOLPIX NiMH $10.95 for 2 of them. that's $21.90 plus s & h to get the right batteries for this camera. you can use store bought Ni-MH you just don't know when there go...
Summary: I got this and I was very excited, I tried it out around the house and I noticed immediately that the focus was a little out of whack. I thought it was settings, I did what I could to readjust the settings and the focus to get a good picture.
Excerpt: Купила данную технику! По началу очень радовалась покупке. Но через 3 месяца начал выдавать ошибку "выключите фотоаппарат,откройте крышку объектива и снова включите фотоаппарат" вот и все.....и менять объектив!
