Excerpt: I have had this camera for more than three years now and I really like it for its many features. First of all it has 8.1 megapixels that means the pictures are extremely sharp and great for making printed photos and even large posters. Also the zooming of 3.5 …
Amazing image quality in an all metal Nikon camera for pocket change.
30 May 2011
Summary: Image quality is the key to any camera & the Nikon P3 was blessed with it. Eight megapixels on a larger 1/1.8" sensor combined with the excellent Nikkor lens & great Nikon color add up to a compact camera that you can get amazingly large detailed prints from.
Summary: I have owned this camera for a little over two years and have taken almost 3,000 pictures with it. Everything has been excellent and this camera is built like a rock. It has taken a few drops right on the lens and been fine.
Summary: Not being a digital camera kind of person, this is easy to use, and takes very good photos. However, I don't like not having a viewfinder. Using only the screen drains batteries quickly. Constantly turning it off to preserve battery life results in not having it ready when needed.
Summary: Great camera with many useful features. No USB cable was included however which has led to a 4 week chase and no results yet from Amazon, Nikon, or Cameta Camera, the supplier. Poor followup in this case. Now I understand that Nikon no longer supplies this cable.
Summary: I got this camera because it was at the time cheaper than the P4 version. I wanted an easy to use point and shoot camera. I was recommended Nikon because they are the best at taking pictures. I have not really done many indoor photos so I can't comment on them but I have taken lots of pictures.
Summary: This is my first digital camera. The basics are easy to learn and simple to master. However, the Coolpix has so many capabilities, it may be months before I get to most of them. I did try to get it to download wirelessly initially, but was unable to master that, but with the included wire, it was a...
Summary: I originally thought that having a smaller camera would allow for a cool "side-camera" for those times when I didn't feel like carrying my "regular-sized" camera around. After receiving the Nikon Coolpix P3 - my mind was changed! This is now the first and only camera I'll be taking with me.
Summary: Nikon P3 camera has all the features that an amateur /beginner photographer can require. 1-Resolution: up to 8 Mega pixels, pictures are sharp and crisp. 2-Program photography: easy and quick to use 3-Advanced modes photography: allows the setting of individual parameters 4-Preset scenes including...
