  • Summary: I ordered the Nikon as a Christmas gift for my mother. How disappointed to find out the screen doesn't detect any images through the lens. In the process of contacting Nikon and Overstock.com regarding return/exchange. I own a newer model and it's great. My advice is don't order refurbished.

coolpix by Nikkon

Overstock
22 October 2007
  • Summary: This is an excellent camera when it's working. I've had to send THREE back for failure to work. The camera will work for a week, sometimes longer but it always malfunctions. I wish I could find a comparable camera at a comparable price. However, as it stands now, it is a LEMON.

Avoid like the plague, good when working ,broke after 2 holidays

Matt, Amazon
1 July 2008
  • Summary: At first i really liked this camera, it took some really good outdoor pictures on my holiday this year and last, However after very little use and no damage/drops etc. it no longer works. The camera has a design flaw in which the internal shutter fails to open and therefore photos cant be taken (well a black screen comes out, but that is all) everything else about this camera was ace.

bad build quality

  • Summary: This is a nice camera but mine simply failed after only 18 months. That means about 3 holidays and a few family occasions. So my advice is not to buy.

DO NOT BUY

RBB_UK, Amazon
2 October 2007
  • Summary: THis is a great design, particularly the swivel and 10x zoom. But, the model is flawed with an inherant black screen problem which Nikon will not recognise. Pity, but don't buy.

Schlechte Verkäufer

  • Summary: Das Produkt habe ich vor etwa zwei Monate bezahlt und noch nicht bekommen. Gerade heute schrieb ich die E-Mail an den Verkäufer. Der soll mir entweder das Produkt oder das Geld zurücksenden. Ich bitte Sie auch um die Hilfe. Der Verkäufer hat die Versandkosten sogar zweimal verlangt, da angeblich das erste mall das Produkt zurück kamm.
