Summary: the high resolution video is .MOV so if you want to run it in your computer you have to install quick-time which make your computer slow. Picture is not very good lots of shades. STILL nikon-coolpix is a very good brand this ONE is not.
Summary: Do not buy this camera! I have only had my camera a few months and have not used it much because it constantly shuts off within seconds of me turnng it on. This has been so frustating! At first I could get a few shots in before it shut off, now it shuts off immediately after I turn it on so I can't take any pictures at all. I feel so ripped off by this purchase. This was a new camera, and not a cheap one, and its a piece of junk.
Summary: My husband bought this camera for me on Amazon, and I loved it...for three months. Then it simply stopped charging. I called Nikon, who couldn't figure out if it was the battery, the charger, or the phone itself. I paid to ship it to Nikon myself, and they kept it for a month on a "parts hold." When it finally came back to me, the camera still wouldn't charge or turn on - exactly the same as when I sent it in.
Summary: I've had this camera for 6 months. At first, it was pretty good. Great pictures. The only major problem was how many seconds on average it would take to shoot several pictures in a row, but I dealt with it. THEN....the shutter only started 'half way' opening, similar to some of the other reviews. So I decide, I've had it less than 1 year, I'll send it to Nikon for warranty coverage. Once it got there, Nikon customer service was HORRIBLE.

Pros: Still photos in good light and thats being nice
Cons: Very disappointed in shutter speed. Forget about taking photos in medium to low lighting..,.camera will NOT focus. On breezy day forget about taking pictures outdoors...focus sensors very wind sensitive. Forget about taking action shots ie. baseball games
Summary: Very dissappointed in this camera. It takes very blurred pictures if the subject moves at all. I expected more from a Nikon, I am giving this one to my 5yr old grandson and going back to Cannon.
Summary: Photos taken in any mode (Auto, ISO, Twi;ight, Landscape etc) are bad. Never imagined that the qualoty of the pictures will be so bad. The user experience is the next worst thing. The UI, I feel was designed by some inexperienced. Look at the Sony DSC series for a pleasing UI. Only thing I liked is the HD Video quality.
Summary: We owned the camera for one week and it broke. The dial that turns the flash on or off stopped working and the camera was stuck with the flash off. Luckily we bought from Costco and they have a great return policy. We are disappointed.
Summary: I bought this camera refurbished by Nikon from the Nikon store. The usb port did not work from the get go, the camera would not charge, either via ac adapter or via usb cable to laptop. Luckily the battery that came with it was fully charged so I had a chance to check it out until the battery wore down.
