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: Let me start by saying we didn't research nearly long enough, & don't have a vast knowledge of cameras. We've both always had Canon's and managed to take great pictures with those. The one pro of this camera is it's ability to take an amazing still close up. Other than than I can't think of anything I like. The focus takes forever, it doesn't do well in low light situations & if you are trying to capture moving children...FORGET IT. It is a massive blur..
