Good camera for grandma

steveboozerii, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera for my grandmother. She needed a simple point and shoot digital. This camera does the job well. I haven't played with the advanced settings so I cannot comment on them. This camera is well suited for grandma's level of use. Excellent seller with prompt delivery.

Best compact camera I have ever owned. Love it!

rplc48, Ebay
23 September 2011
  • Summary: One of my most favorite cameras ever! Regretfully, my wife dropped it into the ocean while in Maui. I managed to retrieve it and the images on the SD card were still good. But with tremendous regret, the camera is fried. Size of the camera and quality of the photos and ease of operation makes this a camera that was great to use. Size made it a favorite over my SLR for all outings that did not include a car or included extended hiking, skiing, biking, etc.

Never Again

Su Doku, Amazon
9 October 2009
  • Summary: If it were possible I would rate it a zero and the company even worst. I'm absolutely convinced this camera was manufactured cheaply with every design flaw imaginable. My camera stopped working after 10 sessions. Suddenly the camera could not sense/tell when the lens cover was open or closed so it stopped working because of it. I sent it to Nikon and they wanted $154 to fix it. It's a manufacturing defect - why should I pay?

avoid NIKON like a sick chinese chicken

Gary L. Hermsmeyer, Amazon
27 June 2009
  • Summary: I went through the process of sending my camera in to the nikon repair center. it was used very little, in fact it appears brand new. it had never been mistreated, wich is what nikon tried to convince me must have happened because they refuse to believe that they have sold an inferior product. they never told me what is wrong with the camera but wanted $146 to fix it and send it back.

Take it everywhere but not indestructable

lotsofbookshelves, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: I am on my second S5. And I have grown used to having one in my pocket. It is about the same size as a wallet and ever so useful. The first one died after 11 months of very hard use, the screen went blank and though it still will take pictures it is hard to tell what you have in the frame. No real complaints with it it been dropped more than a first grader playing catch. The second one has developed a dark spot in the picture a day after the end of warranty.
