Ordered for Refurbished but received the one which looks like USED.
12 September 2010
Summary: I have Ordered for Refurbished camera but received the one which has lot of scratches on it and looks like USED for several days by someone!!! The scratches are all over the camera and even the letters on the buttons were disappeared.
Summary: It is very common for this camera to break with a "lens error." I had it for only two months, and it was not dropped. One day, I went to turn it on and it said "lens error." After researching this error for this camera, it turns out that this happens frequently with this model. It needs to be repaired when this happens. The pictures were great, though, so if you do not pay much for it, and are willing to pay for the repair, the pictures turn out nicely.
Summary: Nikon has lost my loyalty with this camera; horrible customer service. The camera lasted all of 5 months with a maximum of 2 hours of use then a battery change resulted in "lens error." Nikon claims that there was "lens impact" as reason for not repairing under warranty. They explain the lens was crooked. The lens became crooked when I turned the camera on after changing batteries; apparently they suspect impact or that it was dropped.

Pros: NOTHING at all.Junk
Cons: IT DOES WORK!I only got use the my coolpix one time, before mailing it back. And I am sill having problems with it. My sister bought also and she having the same issue. Battery issue. SORRY PEACE OF JUNK NIKON EVERY MADE....
Summary: I bought my camera in November 2008. It is now May 2009. I have probably used my camera a total of 2 hours since purchasing it. During that 2 hours of operation, I have gone through countless pairs of batteries--I think many may believe I am exagerating how many batteries this camera has eaten during so little time of operation.
Cons: This camera cannot take a good picture to save its life. It is slow. Most photos are out of focus unless the conditions are perfect. I have never been so aggravated with a camera. Save yourself the frustration and buy something else. I have.
