Summary: this camera starts out good but in the long run, this camera don't hold up good..the first I brought accidentally down on soft carpet and broke real easily and so I replaced it with a new one with the rechargeable battery where I kept my camera in a camera pouch and now its not working and it haven't been exposed to any heat or been dropped...so I don't trust buying another Nikon ever again..now im going to a new type of brand like maybe hp.
Summary: I have a Coolpix that I purchased over 3 years ago, but unfortunately the battery hatch finally gave way. I bought this camera with the intention of replacing that one. I also own a Rebel T3i. The older camera was a better camera, but it must be said that it was an excellent camera. This camera is a great point and shoot... daytime pictures. Great quality, zoom, a steady hand does help on occasions, but the pictures are very good.
Summary: Well first of all, I'm very disappointed in myself for not knowing it takes AA's instead of a lithium battery :( I guess I just assumed. My last camera took the lithium battery that had a wall charger, and I LOVED IT! I'm really nervous this camera is going to EAT these AA's in no time! I cannot get the editing CD to download on my computer, I'm following all the directions, then it says, 'click the box that says NEXT', well there is not a box that says NEXT!!! ugh!
