Summary: This camera is annoyingly great. I've mainly used Canon dslr cameas, but this thing continues to surprize. great performance(8 to 9 meg equivalent compared to dslr),small,light,responsive, great in low light. best $198 I ever spent on camera equipment. It's now Aug 26 2014 and too late to buy this.
Summary: I bought this last year before electric daisy carnival in hopes ofr shoooting some 1080P videos of dj sets that would otherwise look great on my phone but sound absolutely horrible. It also needed to be compact so that I wasn't carrying around a brick. THIS FIT THE BILL COMPLETELY.
Summary: After reading a ton of reviews about the Lens error factory defect that basically bricks the camera I still took my chances on this. Turned it on to find the lens error on the first try. Pass. 3 stars because I am sure that the one's that do work, probably work really well.
Takes good pictures; That's the most important thing

Summary: I did a lot of studying before I bought this camera. There was a newer model coming out with GPS etc. I didn't want that, partly because I figured it would use the battery quicker. My big gripe is that the battery is charged in the camera. I like to have two batteries and a separate charger.
Super camera and the price is unbelievable for the quality!

Summary: Super camera! My husband is a photographer and he really liked it! Great low light photos. Crystal clear. Not hard to focus. Only disappointment is it didn't have the easy panoramic setting. You still have to stitch several pictures together.
Summary: This very competent camera nicely complements my Canon SX260. The Nixon is my "indoor camera," with modest telephoto but very large aperture, while the Canon is my "outdoor camera" with long telephoto.
Summary: Camera was shipped on time and packaged superbly. The camera takes awesome pictures and of great quality considering it is a pocket compact style . The only minor complaint is that the CD owner's manual is very complicated for the camera being a coolpix, however the positive on the owner's manual is...
