Summary: it is ok, very small, but slow, focus not great or fast pros: very small fairly cheap lithium batteries, very much better than ni-mh, also smaller and lighter, do not self-discharge as much convenient charging - do not have to take batteries out standard pictures are pretty easy - the thing seems to be more about faces than anything else playback editing - redeye reduce, color/histogram enhance, rotate, crop, make small pix lot of features though many of them are dubious...
Excerpt: I bought this camera for christmas last year when my camera stoped working. It was a great deal for this 12mp 4x zoom camera. The sleek size makes it easy to fit into your pocket to go anywhere, while it's large LCD screen makes it easy to view your pictures. I love that it comes with a lithium ion battery, easy to charge and go. The battery holds it's life through all that i throw at it. As a mother of three i'm always taking pictures of them doing something.
Excerpt: This camera has not let me down so far! It is very user-friendly and produces very high quality pictures. The pictures do not come too washed out or blurry. If you're looking for an easy to use point-and-shoot camera, this is the one for you. It is a small camera; however, the display in the back is not small. It shows you a sample of your images on a big enough screen you can see.
The Nikon Coolpix S205 Digital Camera takes AMAZING pictures!

Excerpt: I bought this Nikon Coolpix S205 Digital Camera for my little sister as a Christmas present, and I promise you, every time I use it, I think about being a bully and taking it back to use for myself! :p This digital camera is a very pretty shade of red, and is also very slim. It fits in any pocket of mine and hers, and she likes to wear the skinny jeans, so it's definitely a good size if it fits in those pockets!
Summary: I bought this at the last minute for my 11-year-old son for Christmas. It has been nothing but a wonderful choice. First, the person who I purchased it from was helpful and generous. Next, the condition of this used camera was perfect. My son was thrilled with the camera and it has taken excellent photos despite his lack of experience.
Looks pretty, confusing and broke after a few months

Summary: We are not techies and I wanted something basic to take decent shots of the kids on. We had a Nikon Coolpix in the past (the $150 model 5 years ago) and it worked great for 4 years, with heavy use. This model, however, has been a huge disappointment. It is not user-friendly, and even when the flash is "working", the indoor shots are all dark. Now, there is a whirring noise and the camera is toast.
Summary: What an excellent camera. I have had MANY digital camaers in the past. This, by far, has been the best. The quality of the photos is amazing. I sent a few snap shots to a friend that is a photographer. She asked me, "When did you get a new SLR?" I told her the type of camera and she was shocked. The photos look excellent on my HDTV when streamed through my iCloud. The camera is very easy to use and is VERY compact. I told two of my friends about this camera at work.
