Excerpt: Great for an all around point and shoot coolpix. I find it easy to use, and the size is perfect to just slip into a pocket. The zoom is great if your looking at taking pictures of things close up. i'm into nature stuff, so some closeups are great.
Summary: I bought this camera for my deployment to Iraq. i absolutely love it. the ONLY complaints i have about it are that it only takes videos for 10min at a time and that if you dont have flash on that sometimes the pictures can be really grainy. but that is easily fixable... flash lol
Summary: Before this camera I always used Canon and get very used to Canon's applications and style. This time I wanted to try new thing and everybody suggested Nikon. This one little bit slower than Canon SD 850 but it has perfect color control with flash where Canon doesnt have!
Summary: I chose this camera as I wanted a camera that could take good quality shots, was fast to start up, easy to use and small enough to carry around easily. I think this camera is all of those things.
Excerpt: Compact form factor, easy-to-understand and -navigate menus. Exceptionally crisp images in good lighting. In poor lighting, digital noise is what you would expect for a small CCD chip crammed with 10 Mpixels. However, ultra-high ISO values are quite reasonable for a camera of this size.
Excerpt: This in an outstanding camera. It is fast (there are faster cameras but this is more than adequate), accurate, and produces excellent images under difficult lighting situations. The lens is sharp with well controlled distortions. The metering is spot on accurate.
Summary: The picture quality is great. The menus and features are good, but the shutter lag seems to be too long. The reason I bought this camera was because of its quick start-up time, but it seems to be canceled out by its long shutter lag.
Excerpt: huge screen. fast zoom, fast startup. Takes great video. Image stabilization is subtle and effective. Face recognition doesn't work on profiles, but is a neat feature for front facing subjects and the first time i've seen this feature. It is not active by default. Overall, a pretty fast camera.
Summary: I returned the elegant S52 to buy this one. There is a lot to like about this little gem. It's small, only a fraction thicker than my old Elph and smaller in two dimensions. It's very easy to use, and the scroll dial helps speed things along, though its not nearly as smooth as the dial on the S52.
