Cheap & good for staged close up. NOT a good camera fro traveling.
17 July 2015
Summary: Great close up pictures. Battery drains FAST! Battery cover had to be taped shut - not broken, but has a gap when batteries are present. It would only take a very small knock to kill battery door.
Summary: I initially bought this camera to use on my honeymoon, and while the photos are OK, they're not the quality I would expect from Nikon. Trying to get the photo you want with this camera requires taking several shots and deleting most of them.
Excerpt: When I don't want to risk carrying my DSLR kit, I pack the L610 for non-critical work. Sometimes it has done surprisingly well! The interface is extremely simple, leaving few possibilities for interposing settings. I do appreciate the +/- button, however. The L610 is very comfortable in the hand.
Summary: This camera is very slow to write the image to the memory card. VERY SLOW! It drains a set of AA batteries in less than two hours. Every zoom and every function uses the batteries, so keep that in mind.
Summary: The batteries are hard to get in and out as the latch sticks. You have to press hard to get a picture to take and when you press hard you usually move the camera a bit which results in a blurred photo--have to take many pics to get one good one.
Summary: When I purchased this camera I didn't realize it came with regular AA batteries not rechargeable ones, that was disappointing Also it did not come with a memory card either so that was disappointing, it does take really nice photos though
Summary: This camera is fairly straightforward and easy to use, and the pictures seem to be of good quality. I would not recommend this camera for a parent with active kids or someone who takes shots of moving subjects. It is really hit or miss as to how blurry the end result will be.
Summary: I purchased this camera to take many shots. I have a new grand daughter and of course, when you snap a picture they smile just after it. This camera does take many shots, but the more you take in one session the lower the quality of the picture.
