Made for Asian electrical outlets!

marisuz, Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: I was very excited to receive this camera since I've heard such great things about Nikon cameras. However, I wasn't expecting to receive a camera that was made for non-American electrical plugs. I have traveled internationally extensively and own several outlet adapters; however, I found that to be impractical and unacceptable for an everyday-use camera. I returned the product.

Terrible camera---waste of money.

U.M., Amazon
29 October 2014
  • Summary: Terrible camera-----the label on the bottom saying "Made in China" says it all------cheaply made, and it broke on its own twice in the first month. Anytime I tried to take photos at the beach, any wind or grain of sand would cause it to stop working, and the lens wouldn't open or shut again unless I tapped the camera over and over. This happened several times. The photos were not clear and the indoor ones were very dark. The "barrel distortion" (i.e.

Disappointed.

  • Excerpt: Even though it has a 20.1 megapixel sensor, image quality is horrible. My old Sony cyber shot camera with 3.1 megapixel could take better images. Was this review helpful?
  • Cons: I wished this one could take better photos than my phone, but it's not good at all.

Low quality camera

Mom, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: This camera takes awful pictures, 20.1 MP is a joke… (which is unfortunate because I was really excited about it). But even close up, in great light, the pictures were blurry 8 times out of 10, and it was slow as can be in between taking shots, forget multiple shots, owned/ used just over a month, and it ended up freezing after taking each picture, went black and wouldn't turn off, and the battery had to be removed to reset it. Has been returned.

Broke immediately

  • Summary: Within two uses started getting a "lens error" message and the lens cover would not close properly. The camera had been handled with care. Fortunately that was within the 30 day return window and we received a prompt refund. We ordered the S3600 as so far it has been great.

Falta de peças e acessórios de reposição.

santhilaire, Nikon
25 July 2014
  • Summary: A máquina pode ser boa, o grande problema está com a reposição de peças e acessórios. Perdi o adaptador/carregador, e, além de não encontrar com facilidade o produto (precisei usar o 0800 da empresa e ainda duas vezes o "fale conosco" para que indicassem uma revenda, uma vez que a empresa não revende reposição, quando encontrei, verifiquei que custa a metade do preço da camera nova.

... buy this camera from Amazon but I feel so disappointed that I want to warn others against this camera

Ivory Black, Amazon
26 June 2014
  • Summary: I didn't buy this camera from Amazon but I feel so disappointed that I want to warn others against this camera. First off the pictures are terribly blurry. My old 4.0 megapixel camera had clearer pictures than this. Secondly, the camera stopped working. I've only had it for four months. It won't charge anymore. I replaced the battery for $40 too! Basically, I wasted my money on a crappy camera and then extra money to try to fix it.

Two Week Wonder

Helen Moon, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: While traveling overseas I scratched the lens of my very old wonderful Panasonic camera. On the advice of a salesperson in Italy I bought a Nikon Coolpix and for two weeks it was fine. Then it simply refused to turn on. The battery was fully charged. The camera had not been dropped or damaged in any way. As it was bought overseas the warranty is useless in Australia. Surely a global company can manage a global warranty. Never again Nikon! I have bought a new Panasonic.

< 6 months later shutter won't open fully

weblady, Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera for a wedding gift for our daughter,(December 2013) it worked great at first but when we tried to use it for graduation it displays like the shutter isn't fully open and this is pretty useless. We only had a 30 day return from Amazon. I have read many complaints along the same lines on Google-let the buyer beware folks...
