Summary: I have owned four comparable cameras, over a period of many years. This was the worst of the lot, by far. Behind the lens, inside the camera body where it could not be reached for cleaning, was a collection of dirt and "something" that caused spots to appear.
Summary: Here is a big deception. This is probably the worst camera I have ever had in my life and I started digital photography with a 1MP Kodak digital camera. It took better pictures than this one. I bought this Nikon as a point and shoot camera in order to take pictures of my kids.
Summary: We have now had this camera for four months and it replaced our Kodak V530. I can honestly say that the Kodak was better. Here's why: 1. The Nikon (compared to the Kodak) produced pictures that were grainy,dark, had poor color saturation, and caused people to blink.
