Summary: I ordered this because I wanted a camera for taking pictures at sporting events. It's not a horrible camera, but the zoom isn't as good as I expected. It gets really pixelated and blurry if you zoom too far. I would not recommend this.
Summary: This is a small point and shoot digital camera. It takes high quality photos and videos. However, it's difficult to focus and shoot quickly. If you have plenty of time to let the auto-focus find faces and focus then it's fine but not great for quick shots.
Summary: So I searched up a few reviews before I purchased this item and the reviews were pretty good, so I went ahead and bought it. Not the best purchase of my life. I mean it takes SUPER crisp pictures as it should with a 16MP lens... when it has the right lighting.
Summary: This camera is a great value for the price and good if looking for a point and shoot (I was.) My only qualm was the day after I ordered this, my local camera store ran a full-color ad from Nikon at a lower price than Amazon!! Unsually Amazon is always the cheapest source.
Summary: I love the pictures Nikon cameras take (see flickr /imrananwar for some examples) but each of my Nikon S6, 5700 and D300 ended up having to go back to repair manufacturing or design flaws. Cannot stand the 100% failure/defect ratio of a fancy expensive company like Nikon.
Summary: I'm writing from the perspective of a working mom with school-age kids in sports and band. I received this camera as a gift, and have been testing it all day. I wanted a new camera with a better zoom than my Elph, which is now around 5 years old. At this point, I do not perceive a major difference.
