Summary: Very good, excellent quality pictures, with stereo surround sound, 720p HD video. Awesome long range shots. If you aren't looking to spend a ton of money, and still want a great camera, this is the line to buy.
Summary: Love the ability of over ridding the settings. The videos are outstanding from this camera. I was pleasantly surprised. My only hangup is that the flash is not automatic. You must remember to lift the flash housing.
Summary: I bought the camera to get sharper/clearer images and close up detail. The camera is very easy to use especially for someone like me who is electronic handicapped. Unfortunately the pictures are not as close up as I would like without getting blurry.
Summary: If you want to move up from a pocket size point and shoot camera to one with a 15X zoom, this is a good choice. The picture quality equals many point and shoot cameras, and the 15X zoom and anti-shake features allow you a great deal more flexibilty.
Summary: UPDATE: 1/11/2011 - Because there are so many comments asking the same question I decided I should add this to the beginning to save you agony. This camera is poor in low-light and not the greatest for taking shots of kids running around or in situations where you need to quickly take multiple...
Summary: I wanted a reasonably priced camera with at least a 15x zoom and this camera fits the bill. Takes wonderful pictures with a little manipulation of the settings. I'm used to a point-and-shoot camera (my Canon died after 8 years) where I didn't have to change the settings to get a great picture.
Summary: Camera came as advertised, works well for my needs which is mostly point and shoot with a little bit of zoom and action shots. Batteries last a long time even with alot of looking at pics and playback of the video. Video is really good especially outside with alot of light.
Summary: I took this camera on a trip out of the country. It performed well but halfway thru the trip it wouldn't read my memory card. I returned the camera when I arrived home with no hassle and got the same model. It has performed very well.
Summary: I bought this camera mainly to take higher quality pics of my four kids. And...I love this camera. Many reviewers complain about blurry or yellowed pictures. I had the same problem at first. I was frustrated and wanted to return the product.
Nice cam, but no manual control and video is not great

Summary: The camera is ok, comes with a really good Nikkor lens, and takes great pictures. However, people expecting some manual controls will be disappointed. The zoom is extremely good, but when in maximum zoom the clarity is not reflected on the screen.
