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.
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!
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. Also worth considering is an external battery charger. You can get a charger with 2 extra batteries for less than $20. Perfect for the average consumer. Not SLR quality, but not SLR price either.
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. It looks and feels like a small DSLR, except for manual zoom. The electronic viewfinder is good for keeping the camera steady, and this camera is also a great video camera.
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. Not enough time to give a detailed report on it, but I can say that while it does take great photos in low light, it suffers the same problem of not being to capture movement very well in low...
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. Lastly, I wanted to take pictures in the icerink which can be dark at times. The pictures have been great there too!
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. The Canon was a good candidate but a little on the heavy side. The Lumix had some color issues and I decided on the Nikon. So far, I love it. It is light, full of features and gives you a lot of manual tuning to play with.
