Summary: Length:: 0:52 Mins This camera takes horrible shots. I bought it before moving to a Pacific island and boy was I wrong. It does horrible with sunlight, leaving vertical streaks through the pictures. The video quality is also bad, especially if you're outside with sun - again, vertical streaks everywhere. I could talk about the positive features, but unfortunately if it doesn't take good pictures, it's not worth it.
Summary: I bought a previous Nikon Coolpix camera in Europe and loved it. When I lost that one I replaced it with this one. The pictures were poor. Its stopped holding a charge. The touch screen was not intuitive.
Summary: Having been a fan of the Nikon brand since the early 70s, I was eager to try this inexpensive point and shoot digital model. I actually bought 2; one for my wife and one for my daughter. I was very disappointed with the photo quality of this camera. As other reviewers stated, outdoor snaps in bright light seem to fare acceptably, however almost every other lighting condition fails miserably to produce a photo that is not blurry or has low muddy contrast.
Summary: I so regret buying this camera. It's been over a year since I purchased it and I only used it twice. And both times the pictures were so bad it was unusable. My oldest 3 megapixel camera takes better pictures. I thought the touchscreen would be cool but again it was a big disappointment. I've always had Canons in the past and thought i'd try a Nikon. It was a big mistake. I've been back to using my old Canon camera for now.
Summary: I am SO disgusted with this camera! Does not take good pictures indoors (about cell phone quality and not the iphone, which blows this camera away!). Very soft, and sometimes hazy, and the subject is about 10' away (with or without flash). Outdoors the picture quality improves, but only in good sun light. I've had this camera for about a year and have tried various settings hoping to get the quality to improve, but to no avail.
Summary: Purchased this camera for my son as a Christmas gift. I should have listened to the negative reviews! He took less than 100 photos within the first month of using the camera and it stopped working because of a LENS ERROR two days before he was leaving for a trip to Italy! We have to purchase another camera for him to take with him on the trip and it most definitely won't be a NIKON COOLPIX which is junk!
Summary: I had to send it back to the manufacturer twice because of a "lens error." It was a huge hassle and took over a month and a half for them to return and repair. Not worth it. There are plenty of other cameras out there.
Summary: The quality of the picture ("in whatever mode it is") is the worst. Pictures are so dull and blurred. I would recommend not to buy this camera. If a camera cannot take good pictures, other features like touch screen does not matter.
Summary: The camera takes very average pictures. The touch screen is confusing. And when the camera broke, after 4 months of minimal use, Nikon said the warranty did not apply. Stay away from this product! I will never buy a Nikon product again. I should have stuck with the Kodak reccomendations.
