Summary: This camera has a lot of features and takes very good close ups. The auto focus works well except when zooming and especially when zooming in the video mode. Portraits are also very rich with good color and contrast, even in the auto mode. Battery life seems to be fair. I use regular batteries as none of the rechargeable batteries seem to hold up as well. This camera replaced a Kodak digital camera.
Summary: Really love this camera, takes beautiful pictures. Very user friendly. If you use the zoom, the subject has to be still or its blurry. I definitely would buy another one if something happens to this one.
Summary: Nothing wrong with this camera at all I was a pro for 30 plus years, moved to a ranch and this camera with the long zoom is great for wildlife photos Not super sharp lens but fine for putting on website
Summary: Good camera but difficult to operate all the options. Takes good photos but is heavy and cumbersome to use as your main camera.. I ended up buying a smaller camera I could take with me for fast and multiple photo taking.
Summary: One year warranty and product developed issue with lens extending then freezing, up after one year, 8 months. This is my second Coolpix, as the first one, an S640 also quit working within a year. It was still under warranty, fortunately. Love the pictures and the camera functions just fine, but really wish they would "keep working". I keep them in camera bags, indoors, in air conditioning, handled with care.
Summary: And this camera is amazing. Pictures that I would never think will come out good come out amazing on this camera! Enough said. If you are on the fence about this camera, do yourself a favor and buy it. It is perfect for amateur photographers and the like.
Summary: It takes some descent pictures and good video, but overall this camera has some major issues...for one the shutter button broke after 3 months of light use, and I had to pay shipping both ways to the Nikon repair facility...Also, this camera eats batteries like you would not believe. Takes 4 double AA...they last about 80 shots and some picture review time, and that is it...DEAD...More batteries....More batteries..
