Summary: Good news and bad. The camera works fine and takes good photos. However, this purchase replaces the same model camera purchased a year ago. The original camera, purchased last year, worked for a year, then quit suddenly.
Summary: I really like coolpix cameras, quality of photos, features, interface, when they are working.... but getting pretty fed up with replacing them even under warranty. Seems like they could fix this. My S.O. and I bought cameras at the same time a few years ago.
Summary: Had to buy a battery charger kit on e-bay to charge the battery in the camera before I could take 1 pic. ."Pain in the buddy". Nikon fix was as good as the battery cover on my last Nikon camera " That Broke on the second day". However the camera is working now and takes great pic's.
This camera does NOT auto-rotate pictures taken with portrait orientation ...
24 July 2014
Summary: This camera does NOT auto-rotate pictures taken with portrait orientation. You have to do that manually - either in the camera (thru awkward menu navigation) or in whatever image handling-software you use. This is a deal-killer for me, and I returned the camera.
A big manufacturing dissapointement! Features 5 stars!
8 July 2014
Summary: If it were for the features of this little camera, I would give it 5 starts. However, as far as manufacturing goes, it deserves 1 or even 0 stars, and here's why. Several months after purchase, all of a sudden, when I turned it on, the display stated "Lense malfunction".
Summary: Battery that came with the camera would not charge, so had to spend another $40 for a replacement battery. Camera takes good pictures. Lots of scene settings, but "Auto" setting handles 99% of shots we take. Slooow between pics, even when no flash required.
Summary: The camera is very slow both with taking pictures as well as between pictures. I was trying to look for a camera that I could conveniently carry around (compact) and could take action shots of the kids.
lens error, i currently am the owner of a 140 dollar object d art that can not take pictures
29 December 2013
Summary: after about two and a half months of light use (68 pictures taken) my camera can not auto focus and comes up with a lens error. I enjoyed it while it worked, but it worked for such a short time before it became completely dysfunctional.
Summary: Less than 3 days of use and lens issues already occurred. The camera was well taken care of. And was kept in a camera case at all times when not being used. When it was being used, the wristband was being used as well, it has never been dropped or damaged in any way.
