"Like New"?

Carl A. Mcneece, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: This camera was advertised as being in "like new" condition. In reality, it appears that this camera has had a very rough life. There are dings and scratches everywhere. However, it does work, and it came with a battery and a charger. It was probably worth the price.

Camera Review

Mikel ThreeZeroTwo, Amazon

  • Summary: While I didn't buy this product off Amazon I just wanted give my thoughts about the S220. I got this Camera for my birthday a few years ago and while I was great at first I felt like the quality of my pictures was decreasing after the first 9 months. I am a light user and don't do alot of picture taking compared to some. I found the first pictures I took look great but as time went on more noise was starting to show.

  • 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.

Initial Happiness followed by disappointment

M. Kei "~K~", Amazon
23 June 2010
  • Summary: I am brand new to photography, so I wanted an inexpensive, simple, point and shoot camera that gives good quality pictures. I thought I'd found it with the Nikon Coolpix -- my daughter took our first one to Australia and loved it, so I bought one for myself. I am very happy with the picture quality. I found the controls less than intuitive, though, and I don't know how to do all that I want to do with the camera or all that it's capable of doing.

Grainy and Noisy Indoor Pictures...

Amazon Lurker, Amazon
4 June 2010
  • Summary: I am taking into account that this is just a "point and shoot" camera but even so I expect that the majority of my pictures will not come out grainy! In comparison with some of my other friends cameras such as the "Canon Powershot" the Nikon 220 just does not measure up. I have tried to adjust the camera settings, but nothing seems to work in reducing the amount of noise in the pictures. It is especially prevalent in indoor settings or ones with low lighting.

  • 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.

Overall Just Okay

Jared L. Hardy, Amazon
28 March 2010
  • Summary: I don't have much to say because I didn't have high expectations. I was looking for a coolpix to replace the one I previously had. However, I definitely liked my older model better, despite the new one's sleek, modern look. It's less user friendly making the various settings harder to switch. Also the camera's lcd screen has poor quality.

  • Summary: Nikon Coolpix S220 Digital Camera is a compact digital camera that makes a good camera choice for the first- time digital camera owner who is ready to get started in the world of digital photography but wants something that isn't priced too high or requires too much tech savvy.

okay for its price--compared to canon powershot

Rachel "college student", Amazon
24 February 2010
  • Summary: After having a sony cyber shot for a few years and being very happy with it, it stopped working well and I found myself in the market for a new camera. I wanted to try a different company, and I basically narrowed it down to Canon, which a lot of my friends have, and Nikon. With Canon my choice was the canon powershot sd1200 and the nikon coolpix.

Set the ISO to 80, Works Better

Sujit Kumar Mahapatra "Sujit", Amazon
15 February 2010
  • Summary: The out-of-box image quality is either blurry or grainy. I tried couple of things and went on-line for a solution. I got that setting the ISO level to 80 helps a lot. The pictures are coming fine when you set the ISO to 80. For this Press the Menu button when you are in picture shooting mode, navigate to the ISO sensitivity and set it to ISO 80. The video quality is excellent in this camera, almost like a camcorder video.
