Summary: The good news is that I have had no problems with the battery door. However the camera has terrible low light capabilities so I get blurred photos where my old Kodak point and shoot would have got them ok. I, m going to try my luck with a Cannon PowerShot instead as my keep in pocket camera.
second one i have bought in a year and battery door is broken again!
4 August 2012
Summary: This is the second one of this particular model I have owned. The first one I bought took great daylight pictures and I loved some of the features. It takes really poor indoor or night pictures if you are not super careful. You end up shooting the same thing many times to get a good one. Also the battery door will break SO EASILY! If you barely bump it, even in a hard case, it will break. Thats what this one did. highly disappointing because I really like this camera.
Summary: I have this been using this camera for several month, it takes great pictues, easy to use, but the battery compartment will not stay CLOSED. No matter where it is the battery cover will come open, you lose the batteries. Thankfully they are just AA, and cheap.
Summary: OK - so I ordered one of these cameras years ago (an earlier version), and loved it for a long time, until one day it just stopped working and the screen was covered with funny lines. After seeking tech help from the company, it was determined that It would have cost more to fix than buying a new one. So...I took a chance and ordered the same kind (slightly newer version). OK, so this one I have only had for 4 months, and it is already doing what the other one did.
Summary: Bought this camera thinking it would be great, with a name like nikon. Picture quality isn't all its cracked up to be. My 7mp kodak takes much clearer pictures. Also not sure if its my memory card or this camera, but a good chunk of photos are not taken in jpeg format thus leaving them unable to be uploaded to most websites for sharing.
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: 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.
