Summary: I HAVE THIS MODEL S200 WHICH I PURCHASED 2 YEARS AGO IT DEVELOPED FINE DUST INSIDE THE LENS. I TRIED TO GET IT REPAIRED AND THE REPAIR SHOP SAID IT IS A SEALED UNIT AND THEY CAN'T REPAIR IT. I THINK THIS EXPENSIVE CAMERA SHOULD BE REPLACED BY THE MANUFACTURER. PLEASE ADVISE ME HOW I CAN RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM.
Summary: I've had this camera for over two years now and it's been to all of the family functions and vacations. The picture quality is excellent and has a quick start up feature so I can take a picture just seconds after pushing the power button. The battery lasts a long time and has yet to let me down even after many hours of continous use. The camera feels sturdy and solid.
Summary: I purchased the camera after Christmas. I wanted a compact camera that I could keep in my purse for something spontanious moments. My main camera is a Nikon D80 which is not something that I want to carry around all of the time. It's light and easy to keep up with. The photos are great. I can't tell much difference with my D80 pictures. The videos that I recorded turned out good but if I would have used it in better light they would have been perfect.
Summary: This item (which I bought over a dozen of) came in a very timely fashion and at a very competitive price. While the camera looks a lot like the Casios and the HPs and Kodaks of the world, the optics are remarkable. The same pic I have taken of birds at a feeder 15 yards away, suddenly was clear and printable. Its menus are clear and it has a TV mode for taking pics for lower resolutions like website ads.
Summary: Really like the Nikon camera. Love the size. It fits in a shirt pocket. Real easy to use and best of all am real satisfied with quality of the photos. The video feature is also real nice and the down load of pictures to the computer is real simnple.
Summary: Great pictures and easy to use. I researched and played with tons of cameras before finally deciding on the Nikon S200. The choice was that it carried similar features of high-end/high-expense cameras on the market. It was only natural to choose this camera as it gave me great quality at a poor man's budget. And if something ever happens to it such as getting lost or stolen while on trips, it won't put me in the hole. I also have early Parkinson's disease.
Summary: This is a great camera for the money!!!! It is powerful and lightweight. It is actually smaller than i expected and fits very easily in your pocket for easy use. I would absolutly recommend this to anyone who needs a good inexpensive camera!!!
