Summary: I got this camera as an upgrade from my little pocket kodak point and shoot. I was considering a DSLR, but was NOT too enthused about hauling around something so big. My main focus for a new camera was to keep up with my toddler. As we all know taking pix of kids can be trying and hardly ever come out in focus. In other words, I was looking for something that could handle a lot of action without breaking my bank. This camera is PERFECT!
Excerpt: We purchased the camera for a once in a life time vacation. We were happy with the results, the battery life was shorted then we wanted but had several as backup. There were some issues with low light situations. Over all it was a very good investment that work rather well.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color
Excerpt: This gift was not for me, but for my wife. We had the previous model and she was upseet when I gave it to our daughter. I had just purchased the Nikon D-7100. She liked it so much, I got her the new improved version. Everybody happy!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Summary: The 18 MP makes this camera stand out in the "point and shoot" category. The variable screen protector is excellent, and really protectors screen from scratching and damage. So far my experience has been very positive.
I have found out that Nikon is one of top Digital Camera's on the market now.

Summary: GREAT CAMERA - good pictures and video - everything I was looking for. The Zoom is also outstanding. CONS - The camera does not fit in the case that came with it. It has accessorie pockets that look like it could hold all your stuff until you place it or accually cram it in the case. But it is just a camera case and the camera is awesome. Just get another case. Completely satisfied.
