Nikon Coolpix P3 camera

evian, ReviewStream
11 August 2008
  • 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 …

  • Summary: Where I am happy with the camera itself....The actual cost, once I received the final total, I am not happy with.

Very good camera...but is WiFi necessary?

Hiram Grant, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: The Coolpix P3 has a lot of things going for it: 8 megapixels; sharp 3.5x zoom with Vibration Reduction; good quality 2.5" LCD; good in-camera menus; and good battery options. It also has the most "trick" hookup...WiFi.

Excellent camera

Michael S. Pecherer, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I had a Sony digi camera for some time. I found the features difficult to use in that one had to carry the manual around with you as a reference. While the pictures were excellent in general, I often failed to get the shot I wanted due to some adjustment that I had forgotten or couldn't otherwise...

Thought it was good until I got a Canon

Elizabeth Dias, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I like many others did a lot of research on my next purchase of a digital camera. I previously had a Sony and was sick of the lack of quality in pictures, photo editing software, and the clutzy menus. So I purchased the Nikon P3.

Superb picture quality

J. A. Chen, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I did alot of research when I decided to upgrade to an 8mp camera and it was a tie between the P3/P4 or the Canon s80. I decided on the Nikon because I did not think I was going to really use all the manual controls offered on the Canon. If I did, then I would buy an SLR instead.

High recommendation

Bonni, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • 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.

Lots to Learn

Thomas J. Meacham, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • 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...

Lens is too Fragile

CliffC, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • Summary: I'm not a good photographer but use my cameras for vacation/backpacking pictures. The P3 was the fourth point and shoot Nikon camera my family has owned. One of the previous cameras had the lens quit woking probably because it got some dirt in it.
