Great for a while...

  • Summary: It took great pictures for 3 years, then just stopped working. I bought a new battery, nothing. I took good care of it, never dropped or even tossed around inside a bag. If you expect things to last, don't buy this.

Not what I expected

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for my wife for christmas of 2009 and we are not very impressed with it.  I am a producer for a living and deal with cameras all the time and for the most part I stick with Cannon because I have always had a good experience with them.  A friend of mine convinced me to try this camera and I had been hearing good things about Nikon and so I though it would be a great camera for my wife to carry in her purse and take pictures of our kids with.

It was nice the one time I used it

  • Excerpt: I bought a Nikon Coolpix camera when they first came out, I was so excited for it. I heard they were really nice and worth the money. I'm not a photographer, but I am that guy at parties who wants everyone to get together and have a cute picture for Facebook. I was led to believe the Coolpix was perfect for this! And it was, the week that I got to use it before it mysteriously died.

"Terrible photo quality."

  • Pros: It has lots of ways to finetune photos, easy to set white balance, and the display is nice.
  • Cons: 14 Megapixels doesn't mean much when the photo itself is pixelated and blurry when zoomed in. I have a Nikon Coolpix 885 from 10 years ago, and the photos were never, ever this bad. *Still* working on that tech, Nikon? Sheesh!

It's ok, but spend a little more for the s8100 which is AWESOME.

Amanda Augustinack, Amazon

  • Summary: This model is ok - not terrible, but not good enough for me to keep. While it was good for outdoor shots, it's definitely not a good flash camera. If you have a little extra to spend, I would suggest getting the Nikon s8100 - it is AWESOME - easy to use, great zoom, great flash shots, great low light shots. Totally worth the extra cost (and its the #1 rated Consumer reports point-n-shoot camera).

Expensive camera and I was happy with it when I first got it!

  • Excerpt: This Camera cost me about $170 about 2 years ago. It is 7x zoom, 14.2 megapixels, quick response, HD movie and vibration reduction and the best feature is the "skin softening" feature. You can use this feature and your face will look like it is soften and will make you 10 years younger (it is almost like the instagram pictures enhancing feature).

Not worth the extra $ for the HD capability

C. Mcmahan, Amazon

  • Summary: I was disappointed to find that the movie file format is only available as .mov instead of .avi. Maybe this is because it's HD? I don't know, but I compared it head to head with 2 other cameras and the video quality was far below a new Nikon 570 and a 2 year old Canon power shot A720. What's the point of paying extra for HD movie quality if the file compression makes it grainy?!
