Summary: This camera is so nice I'm going to buy another COOLPIX. I've had mine for 3 years and I'm really happy with it. One peace of advice, Read the manual. It's long but it's worth reading. I'm reading it again after 3 years.
Summary: This is one really great Nikon camera for all those quick snapshots we take on our outings. The operation of it is easily understood by even the most beginning camera shooter. I do prefer the touchscreen that this camera has rather than mechanical levers or buttons as a lot of other camera models have. I think it's a lot faster and not so prone to mechanical failure than those physical buttons on other camera's.
Summary: Great picture and awesome battery life. The power on by opening the shutter did kill my battery once, but overall definitely a good buy and worth the price I paid. Both video and picture are great.
Summary: For people who don't need the fanciest, most expensive camera on the market, this is a reasonable alternative. This point-and-shoot camera isn't the greatest in low light (though it is adequate in most situations), it gives a decent image in most other situations. It is small enough and easy enough to handle that you quickly appreciate the camera as a decent if not fancy camera.
Summary: The NUMBER ONE feature of this little camera is the sliding cover which protects the lens from the elements. I am a welder and mechanic and have managed to jam all of the fragile multi-stage lenses of many manufactures in the past. I photograph the inner workings of various broken machinery pieces while dangling from a nylon harness deep inside or on top of some mechanical device.
Summary: This is a highly affordable camera that is excellent for the price. Most people may destroy it right away upon use, as it takes proficiency and wherewithal to use it, it is perhaps not designed for morons. Easy to smudge the lens right away, if one is not careful. First of all, the image quality is not superb. There is some fuzziness on the edges of the images, not as bad as with other cameras, but mostly you get what you pay for.
