Summary: I can't stand this camera. We are looking to get a new one since our first baby is on the way and I don't want a bunch of blurry, grainy, washed out, horrible color quality photos of him, especially since I'll be using the flash a lot and taking lots of indoor photos of him.
Summary: I have two of these cameras. One takes decent pictures, but not great. The other only takes decent photos on a bright sunny day, otherwise the photos are very grainy. All of the settings are the same on both cameras.
Summary: After 40 pictures, we got a 'lens error' message when using this camera. However, the 40 pictures we took were really good ones. We were still under the 30 day warranty and Nikon had no problems fixing the camera.
Summary: I bought this camera a year ago after losing my Casio Exilim which was a great little camera for the size and price. I thought I would try a Nikon since my first "real"camera was a Nikon 35MM which took great pictures. I have been extremely disappointed in the quality of the pictures on this camera.
Do NOT buy this camera-- LENS ERROR after a few months

Summary: I bought this camera last October and this August when I was taking pictures of my toddler, all of a sudden the camera started making noises and then 'lens error' appeared on the lcd screen and the camera would no longer work.
Summary: The first thing I want from any camera is the "good photo quality". But this camera gives bad indoor photo quality, outdoor photos are okay; but you won't always go outside to take pictures. I am very disappointed with this camera and do not understand how other reviewers have given 5 star ratings.
Summary: I purchased this Camera 6 months ago, pimarly for it's size and features. After less than 300 pictures the LCD screen puked. I sent it to Nikon, and they said it was due to a VERY HIGH impact. Well if sliding it into the INCLUDED case is high impact I guess they are right.
Summary: While I found the camera easy to use, the image quality is completely unacceptable. Unless you're in full sunlight, the image is grainy and the colors wash out to a miserable grey. I tried various settings and could not get it to take a decent picture indoors, even with the flash.
Summary: A glitch in the design of this camera is that for every shot, the lens pops out to some degree. I was taking a photo of my toddler, and my other child bumped me, and the camera fell on the floor. The lens would not retract. Camera was about 5 mos old.
