Summary: The second time in less than 2 years this piece of feces is on the fritz. The first time just as my daughter was going to blow out the candles on her 1st year birthday party, this time when loaded with pictures that I would like to send to my friends. As they would say in Bay Ridge, vaffanculo!
Summary: Total piece of junk , in less than 2 months time it will not work and keeps giving "lens error " . I now see this is a very common issue with this model and must be a design flaw . No more Nikons for me , sticking to Canon or even my 10 yr old Kodak that was built to last. DON'T BUY a NIKON.
Summary: Camera just stopped working. It is less than a year old. Google it and you will see this happens to a lot of people. Do not buy this junk. Also, it never really took great pictures. Throwing it in the trash and getting a better camera and not this brand either.
Summary: Worked well for about 3 months and then died. Service is a big issue with the Coolpix; very limited facilities for repair. If you're going to buy a lower-priced digital camera - and, yes, many of them seem to have issues - you should buy one you know you can have serviced in an area local to you. Think our best option will be to save up and buy a more reliable camera next time - in the $400 range they seem to have much better durability.
Summary: I bought the camera at Christmas last year. By Easter it was not working properly. The lens would not come out all the way and therefore pictures could not be taken. It spent a month in repairs after which I got it back and it worked for about 50 images or so then it went back 2 more times for repairs ( it was there most of the summer). Each of those second 2 times the camera came back not working at all… it wouldn't even turn on!!!
Summary: Do not buy! Mine worked OK for a short time, then I received a 'battery expired' message after about 15 pictures. I tried 2 different new batteries, but the camera won't turn on. It was a gift so I'm hoping the giver can find the receipt. I checked some Nikon websites and found that many of these cameras susuddenly will no longer turn on.
Very disappointed was looking forward to having a working camera..

Summary: I bought this camera with anticipation. I set the date, time, etc. Took it to a singing competition and it would not turn on! I was stunned and saddened. I can't afford another. Was hoping for some ideas as to why this would happen.
