Piece of garbage and a complete waste of my money.

C. A. Wirfs "Buyer Extraordinaire", Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera for my daughter who, while taking her 35mm photography class, could still enjoy taking digital photos with her friends and use when we go places. She had it for only a few weeks before the infamous lens error issue crept up and rendered her camera useless. It was a total waste of money and I wish I could have a do-over and NOT spend the money in the first place.

Pink pictures

  • Summary: Camera worked fine for about a year. Then the pictures started having a pinkish tint. I went to a camera shop and was told that the sensor was defective.

Not impressed at all

Annie Lou "A Smith", Amazon
24 February 2010
  • Summary: I have taken this camera to concerts...pictures come out horrible. I even tried it on various settings (indoor, sports, nightscape, museum, firework, etc)...every single one came out blurry, distorted and really ruined the concert effect I was trying to save. I also tried zooming all the way, zoom 1/2 way and no zoom...all the images came out horrible. I am going back to Canon.

Lens error- good while it lasted

Rich, Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: Like so many other buyers of this camera I got a lens error which rendered the camera useless. The camera was never dropped or bumped and was rarely used. I have owned Nikons all my life but the quality of this isn't up to their standards.

Waste of money

KAT, Amazon
16 October 2009
  • Summary: This camera was a nice size and a cute color and the battery lasts for a really long time. That is about where the positive attributes end. I had my heart set on another camera, but my fiance, a photographer, convinced me to go with Nikon because they put out very good quality products. I wasn't expecting D80 quality by any stretch of the imagination, but I would have expected my pictures to look decent.

Nikon coolpic

melanie locklear, Amazon
18 September 2009
  • Summary: The seller sent the item in a bag. The camera only no charger or book with information on the camera. It does not work and am having a hard time trying to find the power adapter for the item to charge it to see if it really works. Was a gift for my daughters 10th birthday. Do not recommended purchasing anything from this seller. Not an honest person. Stayed that the camera was new and in great condition. I spent almost $100 dollars for it.

Wish I read these reviews

  • Summary: I bought this camera for my teenage son about 6 months ago. He'd taken maybe 50 pictures with the thing when he started showing this "lens error". We sent it in to Nikon for repair...warranty right? Think again. The "lens error" problem is considered damage and not covered. So we got soaked for half the cost of a new camera. Now looking at amazon I see a bunch of people warning of the same issue...wish I'd read it first.

Warning: Do Not Buy!

Edward Sproul, Amazon
10 April 2009
  • Summary: I have owned Nikon cameras all my life because of their excellent quality so I felt no need to research this camera before I purchased. Big mistake. This camera has a reputation all over the internet (check for yourself) for something known as a "lens error". The lens housing is very sensitive to sand or other debris that are part of the normal operating environment of a compact camera.

Don't Buy--Lens Error problems

C. Huggins, Amazon
26 March 2009
  • Summary: Do NOT buy this camera. It worked for less than a month for me. Then it had lens error issues. By that time, the 14-day warranty (that most vendors have) was up, and I was stuck with a bum camera. I've been researching online, and it seems that this has happened to lots of other people with the Nikon Coolpix S210 model. I would recommend a different camera and spare yourself the hassle.

Beware: Lens is JUNK.

K. Realmuto, Amazon
25 February 2009
  • Summary: After owning the camera for less than 8 weeks, I got a lens error just by turning it on. The camera was never dropped or bumped and was kept in a case whenever not in use. A bit of research showed that lens errors are not at all uncommon for this camera, so I must conclude that the lens has some sort of design flaw. Nikon may make outstanding DSLRs, but this point and shoot appears to be junk.
