Excerpt: I traded this camera with a random person on craigslist, not many options were available to me. But I don't consider my trade to be much of a loss. It's quite a lovely small camera, fits in my pocket and the photos look okay as long as your ISO level doesn't go above 400 and you don't look at the images at full size. Certainly was better than my old Konica Minolta Dimage Z5 DSLR.
An okay camera to have but NIKON S220 is not the best
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix s220 isnt the best camera ever. I have the 8gb one and i dont feel as if it the pictures are really clear. Its actually kind of annoying because the flash sometimes makes it too bright and with no flash the pictures kind of look a little fuzzy. its very annoying when you need crisp clear pictures. Its kind of easy to use only when taking a picture. Its annoying when it comes to changing from pictures to videos.
Excerpt: It is a great camera to start with, the megapixels are great and what not.. but i dropped it once and it was in a case..and now it does not close properly. so its a taped up camera. and the warrenty only covers the technical damage not physical.. so i cant do anything aobut it! it is a good camera for its price. i bought it for a hundred dollars at officemax. i used my maxperks rewards so it was a good deal i thought.
Summary: I am a professional but I bought this camera for my wife to carry in her purse. She loved the small size, nice color and ease of use. Unfortunately she dropped it a couple of times, so we needed to replace it. Found this refurbished one at J&R for half what I originally paid. And she can use the battery from her old one, which is good because the batteries don't last too long.
Excerpt: Owned this camera for a couple of months but have sold it. It promised to be great and disappointed in use. The images were particularly soft and blurry around the edges with a large amount of fringing and chromatic aberations present. I won't buy another like this despite liking the compact design. Problems: A bit small for big hands.
Excerpt: I'm used to carrying a DSLR Canon around so when I downsized to this, I lost a lot of positive things. First the pros, it's small so you can carry it in your pocket. It powers on fast and is real easy to skim through your pictures you have taken. Pictures taken in the dark are surprisingly crisp as it has a nice flash on it. The cons to me would be that a lot of pictures are blurry.
This is adequate for use if you just need a casual camera

Excerpt: This camera is lightweight and easy to carry and use. It takes great pictures The pictures are clear and you can zoom in or out. It is great for downloading on the computer.. The color is sharp Th zoom lens gets stuck and you cannot adjust it without turning the camera off and starting all over again.
