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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Great camera. I Loved it. Really nice one. It's sleek, takes spendid pictures, and is easy to use. Thee rotating round button makes photo reviewing easy and fun. I would recomend it to my friends.
Nice pictures, but it did leave spots occasionally

Summary: I had this for under a month and went out to take photos. I took two pictures and then the screen went black. I took a few more photos after trying to figure out the problem and came home to download black photos and videos.

Summary: I'm a professional residential appraiser and probably take 50-100 digital photos a week. I've used this camera for 11 months and today got a black screen. Google it- It appears to be an unfixable problem which inhibits you from using the camera or taking further pictures.
