Summary: So I would say that one of the most important things that a digital camera should do is "FOCUS", well that has been very hard to do. I am only able to get a close-up image in focus by using the close-up feature, but it will not focus on anything over a distance of 1 foot. There must be something wrong with the camera, as I do not believe that all of the Coolpix may have this problem. Still I feel as for me I should have stayed with Canon or Sony.
Summary: I have been taking pictures for ebay for several years and wanted an upgrade camera, especially for close ups and jewelry. This is not a good choice. Zoom photos are blurry, Even with the flash off, and using enhancements, colors are not true.The manual is minimal and not much help. If you are looking for a family camera to take videos, this might work but if you are interested in good, clear, crisp, close ups, this is not the one.
Summary: I got this camera to try a Nikon. I can't seem to get a clear, non-blurred photo. I am not new to photography and somewhat experienced with various dsl cameras, mostly canon. I've done several experiments to see if it's me or the camera. Sad that I can't get a good photo. Love the size, feel of this camera. Maybe it's defective and needs to be fixed????
Summary: Been using the camera for about 6 months and am still struggling with it. I have always had Nikon cameras and wanted a simple camera that my wife and kids could point and shoot. I don't know why this thing has such a delay when trying to snap a photo? I have turned off the smile detection/blink detection and it always takes a second/couple seconds or so after I press the button to take the actual photo.
Summary: This camera doesn't meet the expectation. Although ultra-slim, the quality of the pictures is really bad and blurred. Even worse than a small sony camera I got 5 years ago. Consider the sale tax and return shipping charge, would you rather choose a local store like Walmart or Bestbuy for your next purchase (at least no return fee)? I have done a lot of online shopping from Amazon, but completely unsatisfied with this purchase.
