Never buy used electronics on ebay.

ksmi8393, Ebay
4 March 2013
  • Summary: I learned a valuable lesson on this purchase. Read every word on the ad. This camera is not worth $1.00. I have thrown it in a box and never plan to use it. It is held together by tape. I did not realize the extent of the issues. I will not be buying another electronic item from Ebay. It is a waste of my money, and I purchased this thinking I was saving money, when in fact I just threw it away.

Amazing for sometime.

  • Summary: Nikon and Canon were my trusted brands for Digital Cameras. I bought this camera going after its slim design and I thought I made the right decision. Pictures quality were great and camera was so sleek. After 6 months suddenly now then I'm getting "Len's cover Error". I don't know what is the problem. Same problem happened to couple of my friends also. I'm not sure is this a common problem with Nikon or I was lucky enough to get the defective piece.

Good picture quality, poor manufacture

Sienasilver, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this camera because I have always been a big fan of Nikon cameras and thought they take great pictures. Well, I am not disappointed at the pictures, they look so much better than the one were taken from my husband's Casio camera (in my opinion). But after a few months of using it, the problems started to come one after another.

Great size, but at the expense of picture quality

  • Summary: PROS: the worst picture is the one not taken, and with it's size you can always have this camera with you. The large rear-screen is nice. the camera has a ton of features and settings, so many that it takes some time to scroll through them to find the right one for lighting conditions.

  • Summary: I bought the Nikon Coolpix S50 for the price. It was less expensive than I could buy locally. I like the controls, menus. They are nicer to use. I am not impressed with the quality of photos. My Fuji F10 is better.

Good camera if you can avoid the white spots!

  • Summary: I already have an extended zoom Kodak Z612 so I was looking for a small pocket friendly camera for casual occasions. Did a lot of research and based on good experience with an S1 when I bought it for a friend over a year ago I decided to go with this stylish new S50, afterall the feature set is great! Nikon's legendary lens in a compact stylish all metal body and a birght beautiful 3" LCD to boot, not to mention Optical/Electronic VR!

Not so good design

HIPPY MAC, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this camera a few days ago and returned it because I wasn't satisfied with picture quality and my fingers would end up in a few of the pictures. I think that camera should have been designed a little better because it is a very stylish camera. I ended up buying the Canon SD750 which works well even without the image stabilization feature. The Canon picture quality is superb on the SD750.

Returned due to low picture quality

  • Summary: The functionality on this camera is phenomenal, but I was disappointed in the quality of the images. They all seemed to be grainy to me. I used the camera for 1 - 2 weeks, then returned it and purchased a Canon SD800IS, which I'm very happy with.

Not friendly for lightweight travelers

W. Munro, Amazon
10 May 2007
  • Summary: For those of you looking to travel light, either for business or pleasure, there are a number of factors you should be aware of with the S50 that make it not nearly as travel friendly as other makers. 1)Battery charger comes with long proprietary power cord that must be taken along for it to work. Not only is this cord bulky (think laptop powercord without the brick), it adds lots of weight.
