Summary: I have this camera nearly a month. I used it during my vacation trip and took hundreds of pictures. I like that the camera has a powerful zoom and pictures are nice and sharp. However, the camera sometimes freezes for no reason.
Summary: We just bought a P100 and put it through its paces at Joshua Tree. As owners of a D70s, my wife and I were looking for something lighter and more versatile to reduce fighting over the D70s. The P100 neatly fits that bill, with caveats.
Summary: Takes pretty good photos lots of settings to use. But was disappointed in build quality lens housing is a poor fit lot of play in it(even rattles when you shake camera)if you read reviews its the nature of this camera-plus some of the other brands these days of super zooms!!
Summary: This camera has a whole lot going for it, but image quality is not one of them. If you are thinking of getting this as a substitute or bridge to your DSLR, you will be disappointed. I guess the best way to describe picture quality is..

Summary: Let me first start off by saying I am not a professional photog. However I am not a novice either. After 4 months of regular usage of my Canon SX20is, I noticed a small white dead pixel in my HD video recordings and having a 3 year extended warranty repair plan, the camera has gone back for repairs...
Summary: Kind of startling to recieve a "Nikon" with such glaring failings. It rattles when handled and squeaks when zooming. It often has to be turned off to get it to consider focusing within a closer range after being zoomed out. The camera totally locked up with the lens extended completely.
