Summary: The Picture Quality is Superb. It Focuses very slowly. It does Not have Manual Controls. If you use it to Video something, better make sure to bring along some extra batteries. Video mode DRAINS the Battery Life entirely Too Fast. Other than that, it's okay.

Summary: I am not a fan of this camera - the autofocus is extremely slow and the iso 3200 mode (the reason I bought it) is terrible. Also, the flash release if faulty. When trying to put the flash back down it does not stay all the time.
Summary: Slow camera. It is easy to miss shots waiting for the camera to load. Battery compartment spring is so strong that the plastic bit that holds the battery compartment closed sheared off. This is a cheap camera built cheaply and is not very sturdy.
Summary: Not what I expected from Nikon. I purchased the Coolpix because my camcorder broke and wanted a new camera that also records that could put in purse or pocket. Had the camera for a year and never could get the camera to record since I would always get message " Please wait for camera to finish...

Summary: It arrived with a smudge inside the lens that leaves a blur on any closeup picture in the bottom left quadrant. I tried to return but was unsuccessful. Apparently this is not a valid reason for return.
Great resolution, exellent zoom, poor battery life, slow speed

Summary: I got this camera refurbished during the black Friday deals. I use it with a SONY 16GB Class 10 SD card. GOOD: Picture quality and resolution are excellent. The screen on the camera is big and has excellent resolution.
Summary: Went on vacation to Europe and bought this camera for our trip. Takes a good picture but very hard to use. The zoom/autofocus was very slow. Some shots were missed due to the time it took for the camera to focus. This camera eats batteries. Half a day and the batteries were shot.
I'm not impressed at all. This is the best Nikon can offer in this price range? Avoid ! Very very slow.

Summary: The focus lags severely. The shutter lags even worse despite having an extremely fast memory card that otherwise works great even in RAW mode on my Canon 70D. I am very very disappointed in this camera.
