Summary: Jack of all trade,master of none !!!! Thats the best description about this camera...
Pros: Good image stabilisation ,various custom modes especially easy panorama,and HD recording.
Cons: Poor image quality. Inthe race of megaixels and megazoom nikon may have won, but I have a feeling that they are all in the world of statistics to sell product., I have tried my best to get at least one good quality photo , noise just too much., Its a 16 MP camera ,itried with 12 and 10 MP ,in the hope of reducing noise,but even at ISO100 level, I felt the images were poor., This was my first Nikon product ,since I was always a Canon fan. Iwas considering IXUS1100 and ...
Summary: Grant it I am not the most electronically savey person, but I curse this camera. I got it as a gift, my last camera was a Kodak Easy Share, one of the older models, and I LOVED it. But it was too big to carry around with me all the time so I asked for a little camera for my birthday and got the Nikon "cool"pix. The only thing cool about this camera is it's size. After the first 2 months of owning it the battery cover broke. And it was never dropped or man-handled.
Summary: I am not a professional but I am an avid picture taker and I am pretty knowledgeable about digitalm cameras. I did alot of research and chose this camera because it was simple without alot of frills and buttons AND best of all, it works on AA batteries. I was hunting for a new camera for my 75 year old mother who would actually prefer to have her old 35 mm camera back.
Summary: I read a lot of reviews before deciding on this camera, I bought to replace a very old Sony Cybershot, which while still functioned well, I felt it was time to update, and being that I was going on vacation, I wanted something newer. Big mistake! Overall the camera is easy to use, the manual is not very informative or helpful. The menu is easy enough to navigate, but the actual function of the camera is very limited.
Summary: We got this camera to easily take pictures on vacation and at parties. Pictures are not so great. Other people will take pictures as the same event and theirs are excellent, or we use our other camera, same thing. This is hard to find the right setting and the pictures just aren't that great.
