Summary: I have had this camera for about 4 yrs now I did have a cannon but it fell and broke so I got out this one and I just love it so easy to operate and I also lost the little CD that comes with it so I emailed the Nikon people they emailed me a thing so I could download it so I could put my pics on line I will buy another Nikon
Summary: I bought 2 Nikons in Japan when serving in the US Navy. One was stolen (a knowledgeable thief) and the other banged around with me for the next 2 1/2 year in the service and for the next 40 years, including inside a plastic case to make it water proof: we were in a submarine lying on the bottom off the coast of Coronado's Silver Strand where I trained for UDT special services. (I spent 2 weeks a year in the Navy Reserves, requesting UDT assignment.
Summary: I needed a cheap camera for everyday, and this camera was the best. It shoots great photos as well as little 1 minute video which I was able to upload on Facebook, etc. Highly recommend it or its latest version.
Summary: At the end of the day, this camera ultimately takes very good pictures. The menu is a little bit of a pain to use and the screen on the back has poor resolution that makes judging the pictures on the spot difficult. However, once you figure out the best settings for your situation, the picture quality is excellent.
Excerpt: We received this camera for Christmas 2009. We always used canon in the past. Once we bought a Nikon and returned it because we did not like it, and got a canon. This was a couple years ago, before the Coolpix stuff. And boy has it changed. The nikon is almost like a canon in terms of how it functions and how easy it is to use. This even has a larger zoom, and MP and video length.
Excerpt: It's a nice camera. I can take really good pictures during the day. I have to many problems with auto flash at night. The auto smile feature is great and really cool to check out. It even tells you if someone blinked. Over all it's a good camera. Just needs some help with the flash.
Excerpt: I have had my Nikon Coolpix camera for a couple of years now and I still absolutely love this camera. It is extremely easy to use; from taking the pictures and/or videos to uploading - it is simple to use and understand. I'm not an idiot...but I'm no rocket scientist either and this is definitely the camera for me! It takes beautiful, clear pictures.
Excerpt: Pictures hard to compose..Slow on point and shoot..Aston K. never used this cheaply made camera...pictures not as clear and focused as my daughter's lower pixel camera ...hard to configure setting on the fly..stopped working after a little over a year of us...

Excerpt: I got this camera last year right before Christmas for a present for my self. it was the best cameras for the price. I love that is takes great pictures with no effort and makes great video also. I love that you can use this so easy. My 4 yr old son takes great pictures with this all the time. If some one blinks it tells you. It helps fix red eye, if you turn the cam to the side and take a picture it will turn it the right way for you.
