Summary: I bought this camera a few years ago and I've regretted it ever since. I had a chunky kodak digital camera before this one, which used AAA batteries and broke, so I bought this camera to replace it. I liked the Nikon s220 because of all the great-sounding features it had, the slim style, and the color pink, my favorite color. BIG MISTAKE! This camera takes terrible pictures!
Excerpt: It looks nice........it feels nice to hold...........and that's all!! What a piece of $#&*%!!! Really slow at focusing, very soft photos.....I can't be bothered writing this, I've wasted too much time already! DONT BUY!!!!!!!!!

Summary: My husband did a lot of research on cameras before he purchased this one for me for my recent birthday. On a daily basis he uses a Kodak Easyshare at his work but all the reviews said that this Nikon Coolpix would be a better choice for us to have at home. When we received the camera we were very pleased with the size (it's super small) and the clean look of it (not too many buttons). But as soon as we took a picture with it we knew that we weren't going to be happy.
Summary: I have had many digital cameras in the past 10 years and I have to say this is the worst camera I've ever had. It takes awful indoor photos. The flash is not strong enough and every single indoor photo is blurry and/or yellow in color. I've called Nikon and made sure all my setting were the factory defaults and I've tried using all the different flash options but nothing really seems to help. VERY disappointed in this camera.
Summary: This camera has a very hard time focusing in normal indoor lighting conditions. I took many pictures with it over the holidays, and at least every other one is out of focus or grainy. Even when it does manage to focus the image, it takes several tries. It takes pictures fine outdoors, or in very bright light.
Excerpt: This camera I bought based on the recomendation of the sales person/ Brand name (NiKon). This is the worst picture quality I had ever seen. No value for money Problems: Picture with any setting are having white spots. poor picture detail.
Summary: This camera is easy to use and is a small and compact shooter. Pictures however were marginal. There seemed to be a fishey effect on images, where they are clear at the center, but blurred on the edges. Also it did poorly with colors unless the lighting was bright. A major drawback for me is the lack of support for mass storage class drivers (eg plug into computer and see it as a storage device/ hard drive). Nikon should provide this functionality in the camera.
