My Nikon Coolpix is fun and easy to use.

  • Excerpt: We bought this Nikon Coolpix digital camera a little over a year ago and have really enjoyed it.  We are coming from using a sony cybershot to this.  So far I like this camera better than my sony.  It has a clearer picture with a large display.  I like how lightweight the camera is.  I literally is a point and shoot camera, little else to do.  The camera hooks up to the computer easily and pictures download without much work.

Good camera, sometimes blurry images if you're not steady!

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera to make up for one I lost partying. It takes super clear pictures when you've got time to line up a shot. However, if you're trying to capture something quickly, pictures can come out blurry, making a reshoot necessary. Love the design though and the extra features! Sometimes, pictures are blurry depending on how long you press the button. Have dropped mine several times, but it still works well.

Great little camera to always keep around

  • Excerpt: I keep this camera in my purse at all time to snap pictures quickly and easily of my kids on the go. Usually my pictures turn out decent. Actions shots are nearly always blurry though. My three year old can use this camera, so I am pretty sure it doesn't get simpler than that. I keep it in my purse at all times. Very lightweight and easy to carry around.

Great little travel camera

  • Excerpt: This camera is a great travel camera. It is easy to use and light to carry. It has a very simple zoom, though it will blur if you shake at all when zoomed. I also really like that once the photo is taken, you can zoom the picture. it makes cropping/sizing the picture very simple when ready to process it.

  • Excerpt: I have two of these cameras. For the most part we love them..but i've noticed over the past few months...they are harder and harder to get focused. I might not find that odd if i didn't have two of them doing it. Other than that.....we love this camera!!!

  • Summary: I love this camera, for the price.. had it for a couple months now, and overall it's great for a compact digital camera... only negative is that I still manage to get blurred images sometimes, unless I'm completely not moving or using a tripod. Otherwise, it takes very clear, lush and detailed pictures with true to life colors, and doesn't seem to burn through batteries as easily as other cameras I've had in years past, and has a lot of nice features.

The low cost Nikon

shiguo, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "...The colour reproduction of this Nikon isn't as good as a Sony. I own another Sony T30 digital camera. I love the stainless steel body which gives me a feeling of robustness. The LCD isn't viewable under the direct sunlight which is a pity. The camera scores for its face detection technology. The lens actually moves around to scan for faces. The menu on this camera is easy to use as well. Anyone can just browse through the menu and find what they ...
  • Pros: Good color reproduction, Strong quality build
  • Cons: wrong placing of power button, weak LCD screen

Brilliant Camera

  • Summary: I bought this camera 2days ago and so far I love it. I needed a new camera as ma other one stopped working while on holiday. Anyways back to the point this camera is fantastic even thou I wanted the Nikon S7c I opted for this one to save money. The pictures are taken really quickly and the rotating menu is really easy to use but if found difficult you could just press the button and it will still work out.

La compatta da portare sempre con te!

DanielaP18, Ciao

  • Summary: Possiedo questa deliziosa fotocamera compatta da circa 5 anni e anche se da pochi mesi ho comprato una bellissima bridge non abbandono mai anche la mia S500! La S500 è stata disegnata in un blocco di puro metallo, gradevole al tatto e alla vista, molto essenziale all'apparenza, ma con moltissime prestazioni celate al suo interno.
  • Pros: buona autonomia,ottima foto
  • Cons: a mio parere nessuno
