It may be broken

Teresa G, Amazon
4 June 2013
  • Summary: I think of this product like I think of a used car. It could look good on the outside but it really experienced hale damage & the engine is 200 miles from needing a total overhaul. I have not been able to take a single picture with this camera yet. I'm going to search for a better camera on Amazon.

Hunk of Junk

  • Summary: I got this camera for christmas in 2009. I absolutely loved it...while it lasted. The pictures were definitely an upgrade compared to my 3 yr old Exilim. Then five months went by and I tried to turn on but it kept saying "lens error".

Web cam quality images

Anonymous, Newegg
5 May 2010
  • Summary: The touch screen is more of a novelty than a useful feature. You can finger slide between photos and manually select your subject, but that is it. The rest of the touch interface is no different than pressing buttons. The touch screen offers shortcuts for flash, timer, and macro mode.
  • Pros: Big screen. Fast turn on time. It has an interval timer feature that allows it to take a picture every 30s.
  • Cons: Images do not seem as crisp as other cameras I have used. Even when using a tripod and a 2s timer, object edges seem distorted and blurred. There is no raw format, so it is difficult to see if the blurring is due to the lossy compression. There is no histogram display either. Some outdoor images ...

Picture Quality Surprise

Lori Pitsas, Amazon
26 February 2010
  • Summary: I got this Camera for my birthday back in October and was exited to get to use it. But shortly after I opened it, I was a little discouraged. The picture quality was not good at all. Most of the time it would be "grainy" or quite blurry.

Do not recommend~~You can get a better camera for same price range

KiKi, Amazon

  • Summary: First off I'm not a "newbie" when it comes to digital cameras and as much as I wanted to like this camera it was returned. Even my 9 yr old (who the camera was bought for) thought the pictuers were horrible. Pros: *Easy to use. The menu layout was simple and easy to navigate even for a 9 yr old.

Disappointing

Greg S., Newegg
15 December 2009
  • Summary: We needed a new camera and my wife came back from a trip raving about her friend's Nikon. She wasn't sure of the model, but we just don't spend too much on cameras, so I went with the Coolpix.
  • Pros: It's small and convenient.
  • Cons: The battery hatch always pops open unintentionally just because of where it is placed and how you hold a camera. Really difficult time getting a clear picture.

Worst point and shoot I've used

Michelle, Amazon
14 September 2009
  • Summary: I've been using a Canon 50d DSLR and a Canon Powershot (for portability). I won this camera in a company contest, and was excited since I'd never used a Nikon camera before and had heard nothing but quality things about Nikon Using this camera has made me happy I've never used a Nikon product in the...

Plain Awful

M. Tomaszewski, Amazon
14 September 2009
  • Summary: This seems to be a very nice compact camera. There are many settings for the user to choose from. The navigation is good. The LCD screen is bright and large. However, the pictures are awful. Several of the settings are useless.

adequate photos, easy to use, cool looking, questionable buy

Lindy B, Amazon
9 August 2009
  • Summary: The photos are adequate. You loose detail and get fuzzy photos without flash, even with good lighting. I have a Casio QV-R51 (5 megapix) I am comparing it to. The 3X optical cannot really be 3X!! For $200+ I cannot see a significant difference with my 4 year old Casio with half the pix.

Second-rate Pictures

Stefan S., Newegg
4 August 2009
  • Summary: I would return it in a sec, but... read the return policy.
  • Pros: Nice touch screen. Fairly easy handling.
  • Cons: Picture quality is poor. My 5 year old camera does much better. The playing with the setting has helped a little, but most pictures are blurry.
