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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
Excerpt: Bought for daughters class trip to DC. Tested it first right out of the box every picture taken were blurred. Unfortunately, she took for her class trip and no matter how much she tried to adjust and focus the subject in side the brackets the shot was never clear and crisp. Thank God within return window. It is going back as soon as she gets home from her trip. Price was right and size ideal and compact it came with a carrying case.
Summary: This camera, like the last one, didn't last 2 months. The lens sticks and won't scope out. It's very frustrating! The last one I bought to take on a European trip and the lens stopped working my first day there. This one worked for 2 months before it had the exact same problem! Needless to say, I will not purchase another one!
