not good customer service, lens jammed the first time we tried to use it

Bonnie Carlson-phillips "B", Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: I got it in the US and gave it as a gift to my daughter in India. She can't just go to a shop and mailing the thing back is too difficult and pricey. So when it jammed on the first try (lens reading message just said Lens Jammed or something like that), we contacted Nikon for assistance. Their suggestion didn't work. Now it's a nice lump of plsatic, glass and a little bit of metal and it never took a picture. Piece of junk with no customer service to speak of.

Poor camera especially for the price.

Lauren Hunter Bratt, Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: This camera takes blurry pictures, I am not happy with it all! I have owned many cameras and bought this one for my 8 year old son mostly because of the waterproof feature. I am very disappointed and would have returned it but he ripped the box apart when he was opening it for his birthday.

First time under water and it died.

  • Summary: Took it on vacation and used it underwater in the swimming pool, water got into the lens and battery compartment while being used. Then it stopped working. display window started getting dull and then stopped working altogether. apparently the water seal is not properly made. I bought the Coleman hd water proof video camera and this works perfectly in the pool and on the beaches.

Amature at best

ZotScott, Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this camera as a cheap waterproof camera that I wouldn't be too sad if I lost, dropped off a cliff, or it was stolen while on vacation. I had relatively low hopes about the feature set of the camera and figured at 10MP it would take decent, albeit not perfect pictures. I'm returning it after day one. The interface is horribly cheap, with very very little options. Could be good for kids, or for grandma. It appears to be designed by the makers of Windows 3.1.

I usually love Nikon

Lynn, Amazon
12 June 2013
  • Summary: We are going to Mexico and wanted to "upgrade" from our Kodak Playsport Z3. This is not an upgrade! Shutter speed is super slow, both pictures & video are grainy, it's also awkward to hold underwater. It's not user friendly as far as choosing settings, reviewing pics, and it takes time to get where you want to be. I love Nikon, but this is not the usual Nikon quality.

Outer lens is unprotected.

Frank Jay, Amazon
6 June 2013
  • Summary: The product description sounded good but when I received the camera the outer "lens" is unprotected. Although it is not a true lens, I was concerned it would get scratched at the beach, in my fishing bag, or pocket for that matter. The 'taking' lens is protected but even if the out lens does not actually take photos, scratched on that lens will ultimately affect the photo. The camera was not as well built as I would like and when compared to other brands feels inferior.
