Summary: I bought this camera back in July of 2011. I have never dropped it or mishandled it. Now, 7 months later, for no apparent reason it stopped working. After using it the day before, I went to turn it on the following day and the lens was out of focus. Seconds later it closed itself and a message on the screen read "Lens Error" Besides that, it doesn't take good pictures indoors. I hate that!
Summary: I have had the camera for 2 months, it was working fine at first then one day while using it I was trying to take a picture and the picture stayed blurry on the screen, it finally closed and said 'lens error" it now works a few times after it has been sitting a while then after 3 or 4 shots it will give me the 'lens error again and shut off. Of course this always happens when I am in a situation where I want to take pictures, like a wedding that can't be re lived.
Summary: I hope this review is helpful to the next person considering this product as a purchase as I felt I needed a review similar to the one I'm about to write to help make my decision whether to buy or not. When I first purchased the item I found no where on the Amazon description or the Zavvi Outlet page that would indicate to me that the product would be second hand.

Summary: I bought two of these for my kids for Christmas as starter cameras. (Not through amazon this time). They have been so disappointing. The quality of the pictures is awful to the point of being useless. The batteries on both cameras were defective, wouldn't charge and had to be returned to the manufacturer for replacements. A year later, the same fault has reoccured, only of course now the guarantee is no longer valid, so the cameras are totally useless.
Summary: I was given this camera as a gift Christmas 2011 and by May it was refusing to work.I had planned to use it at a wedding and set it to charge a few days before as there was little charge left.Instead of charging it removed the remaining charge from the battery leaving it totally flat.It was sent for repair,arriving back after the wedding which was very disappointing as I have no personal record of the day.Once returned to me it worked until last week when I was in...
Summary: I bought 2 of these Nikon S3100 cameras 18 months ago the first camera failed because the lens would not extend and the lens cover remained closed, the cost quoted by Nikon to repair was so high I cut my loses and bought a Samsung. The second Nikon camera failed this week when the battery ran to low and would not charge whilst connected to the charger, luckily I still had the first failed camera so I installed the battery of the second camera into the first failed camera...

Summary: I bought this camera from lookfantastic for my mums christmas present. After my mum received it she informed me that she could not get the camera to work and the battery did not fit. it turned out that this company had sent the wrong camera which was in fact a cheaper and older version.
