Excerpt: Within less than a year the lens shutter broke and it will not open. Since it shows an error when turned on I cannot even access my old photos stored on it. Prior it was taking blurry photos. It's cost does not justify the quality of the camera.
Excerpt: Great little camera. Quality pictures. Do not dare drop, the lens will malfunction and you will spend big bucks to repair. The Coolpix P1 offers a high-quality 3.5x Zoom-Nikkor Glass lens with a focal range equivalent to that of a 36-126mm lens in 35mm format and feature a large, bright 2.5-inch LCD for easy viewing in all conditions..
It's a really cute camera that takes decent pictures
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This was the first digital camera we ever bought. I works really well during the day & takes great pictures when the flash isn't necessarily needed. However, in the evening, it does not do as well. The flash takes a while to go off & our kids always end up blinking & their eyes are closed in the pictures. It is a little bulky in size but is still portable. We are looking for another camera to replace it soon.
Summary: I just received this camera today and it's the first and best camera I've had. I decided to buy this camera after the reviews and because it can transfer files over a Wi-fi connection to the PC or printer (which is extremely useful). I haven't set up the Wi-Fi yet though. What I loved about this product was the image quality. The images are crisp and clean, free of noise/blurriness. However, the noise is apparent BEFORE you take the picture. The video quality is great!
Summary: The camera didn't come with a memory stick, so there's 100.00$ and needed a second battery, another 30.00$ as it only lasts about 20 minutes. All in all my old camera, a Sony, was a better deal. It does take clear pictures though. I wish it had a view finder!
