Summary: Haven't even tried the camera yet and I am disappointed. The lens cap strap is missing and there is a small part missing on the shoulder strap as well. If the small details are ignored, I wonder what to expect with the big things...
Summary: The zoom is great but, the thing goes out of focus constantly. The reviews I read did not mention that fact. This is my second one. I dropped the last one on a concrete floor and broke the zoom. I do home inspections and it is very useful for getting wide angle shots of rooms and, close ups of things like bricks on chimneys. Unfortunately, for no reason that I know of, it stops focusing.
Summary: Update: at first I loved this camera. The zoom is fantastic. After 2 years I hate it. The autofocus is terrible. It no longer works. It may or may not focus and nothing you do can correct it. I The Manual is confusing. Sorry I wasted my money. I have owned many point and shoot digital camera's over the years and for the most part, I've gotten good results from models like the Canon Powershot. That said, this camera takes you to an entirely new level of photography.
Summary: The second battery of the kit has a fault: it does not fit the camera, so I cannot use it. I would like to know if you can solve this problem. Besides, I bought this camera mainly because of its extra battery. Sincerely yours.

Summary: I wanted a point and shoot with a great zoom and plenty of DSLR features. Based on other reviews and features, this was the camera for me. I've been a Canon person my whole life. This was my first Nikon. It will also probably be my last simply due to the taste this camera has left in my mouth. The main draw for this camera is clearly the zoom. Which is is beyond phenomenal. Even at full zoom, you can still get a bit closer with digital zoom.
Summary: I've had the camera for about 2 months now, with enough time to evaluate some aspects of it thoroughly. The picture quality is good, the operation is relatively simple. The battery life is not so good. Where it really doesn't live up to its billing is in its GPS capabilities. I got it because I've started using geotagging on my website, and thought that it would be an advance from my current technology (Sony F828 with a separate GPS logger, and software to marry the...
Summary: I ordered this camera as an upgrade to my old Canon Powershot SI3. My Canon served me well but was kind of slow and not very high resolution so I thought the Nikon would be a huge improvement. In some respects it was but overall it was a disappointment. The Nikon has a beautiful LCD viewscreen. Just gorgeous. It had good image sharpness, color saturation and overall clarity. The software touch up features were also nice.
Summary: I have had this camera since Christmas and I'm no happier with it now than I was on the first day I used it. I have kept it until now to give me chance to try all the settings and to use it in different environments, however I am still very unhappy with it. When the picture subject moves even very slightly or slowly the picture comes out very blurred.
