The camera takes photo images that are too good at times.
5 January 2014
Summary: I use this camera for distant and close-ups on various eBay store items.As is true with all digital cameras, the only limit with this Nikon is the amount and type of light available for accurate colors. (I do 95% of my photographing using the mid-morning sun).
Excerpt: Satisfactory. I paid $300 out the door at a major electronics chain store for a floor model. It has performed nearly perfectly, with some sticking of the zoom lever after 3 years. Performs quickly enough to show the personality of animals and wildlife.
Excerpt: I;vde had this camera for over a year now and very pleased with it. Its always used when I am not using my D700. The results are very good, sharp and well exposed. A asset is the tilting screen which comes in very handy at times.
Summary: After 2 months and 1800 shots, IN MY OPINION there are several pros and some cons. My conclusion is that the camera is fine for an amateur - like me - interested in pictures that require extra optical zoom.
Summary: I wanted something that was not as expensive (and intimidating) as a DSLR, but more settings control than a point-n-shoot. This camera delivers all of that. Read the manual, look up cool tips on line then go have some fun with this fun cam.
Summary: Great all around camera. Takes nice pics and surprisingly good video too. If you plan to use the full 26x zoom then a tripod is a must for clear photos, at that range a steady hand simply isn't enough prevent blurred photos. You can get a good tripod for around $20-$30.
Summary: The Nikon P100 includes 10.3 MP, 26x zoom, an electronic viewfinder, up to 10 frames per second, full HD (1080p) video, high-speed video, a pop-up flash, face-tracking, smile-detecting, and continuous sport modes, and a pull-out screen. This is a great camera with lots of great features.
Summary: I bought this because I wanted something better to shoot in low light settings. I have a Canon Rebel XT and while I love it, I also wanted something that will allow me to shoot in low light settings like inside during conferences and workshops. I have had this about a week now.
Summary: I bought this camera because I needed excellent quality pictures in the simplest way to maneuver. I have 4 kids so I didn't have time to learn a lot of complicated functions. I have been very pleased!!! I also take pictures for the schools yearbook and I am so happy with the results.
Summary: I used a Sony point and shoot for eight years and thought that maybe it is the time to switch to something fancier but not dSLR yet. Therefore, after studying the available options, I narrowed it down to Nikon P100, Canon SX20IS, and Lumix FZ40.
