Summary: Purchased this camera to take on a backpacking trip through Europe. PROs: lightweight, portable, easy to fit into a small purse or pocket CONs: compared to a DSLR or larger lens compact camera - picture quality is not the best, lens got a tiny amount of sand in it towards the middle of the trip...
Summary: I know it's not a expensive camera but i was hoping it would work better than it does. I think you can buy another one at the same price and could work better, doesn't take outstanding pictures.

Summary: The functionality of this camera is fine. The pictures are nice. It has some great features, but having owned a Sony,a Cannon, an Olympus and this Nikon this would be my least favorite. My Sony is a larger camera but the batteries are easily charged and exchangeable. My Nikon battery is always dead.
Summary: This camera is good in terms of looks and but not in terms of quality One main drawback is that it takes 3 to 4 seconds to capture the image after you click, this is annoying ..user does not even know what is going on basically poor response time

Summary: For the low price when purchased (under 90$) I am still hoping for ease of use and adequate pictures as I use it more. So it seems reasonable for the price.
Pros: It has better specs than my current older and first digital (DiMage) camera bought several years ago. The display is larger and nice for such a small camera. It has lots of settings. Relatively easy to use and set up.
Cons: Physically it is hard to handle with its smooth somewhat rounded case. It is easy to accidently cover a sensor or light or whatever on the camera front. I cannot see the files on the memory card except by using the software which came with the camera. This required buying a usb card adapter. For ...

Summary: Hi, I have had problems with 5 of the Camera batteries (including a previous purchase - original Nikon batteries). They charged fully a few times (no more than 4), then went dead and refuse to re-charge. The spare batteries I bought also had the same problem.
