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). My biggest compliment is combined with a complaint.......The resulting photos I end up with are extremely detailed.
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. It captures more available light between sunset and dusk than I expected. Craters on full moon were visible. This full-featured point-and-shoot is compact enough to grab and go.
The Nikon Coopix is a super great camera for any Moment!!

Excerpt: I bought the Nikon camera because I wanted an inexpensive Professonal-like camera. I love taking pictures with this camera, It blurrs the background when you take pictures of close ups like raindrops on a flower and the magnifier is great too!! The only problems I have with it are that it takes too long to take the pictures (slow shudder) and you definetly need to buy a Tripod with it.
Excerpt: This camera works better than most digital cameras. It gives you really good distance when trying to take pictures of far away shots as well as giving you clear pictures whether you're near the subject or 50 feet aways from it (a slight exaggeration, but you get my point). It also allows you to get clear videos as well as good quality videos with almost no lagging, unlike a lot of digital cameras.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera just over a year ago to use at home, for vacations and during my kids sporting events. Overall I've found it to be easy to use and to take good quality pictures. It isn't as portable as many point & shoot camera although it does still fit in my (large) purse. I like the fact that it uses regular AA batteries. It is very easy to move from screen to screen and to change modes. It also has an easy auto mode that works well for most circumstances.
Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix P100 digital camera has been a good camera. I debated between this camera and a Canon that had excellent review by family and friends who owned it. I opted for the Nikon because of the price difference and they had relatively similar reviews online. The biggest negative regarding the Nikon is a slower shudder spead than I would like.
nikon p100 is a good step up from a basic point and shoot

Excerpt: I've owned a few canon point and shoot digital cameras over the past several years. Most people I know are getting into the whole photography trend and upgrading to DSLR's but I had a hard time justifying spending that much money on a camera. After lots of research I ended up with this Nikon coolpix p100. It has more features, and can take better quality than a basic point and shoot and it doesn't come with the expense of a DSLR.
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. the video mode is an asset too being High definition and the high speed mode is a joy to use, well exposed, good sound etc.
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. Pros: Lens are superb, quality of pictures in general is above all previous Sony cameras I've been using (including Sony H10 with Carl Weiss lens); Zoom system is great, it is fast to zoom in or out, but it can be difficult to focus in extreme telephoto.
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. Adjusting shutter speed, aperture and ISO give you lots of control to experiment. There is also a lot of pre-programed settings to help take great photos (even of fireworks!
