Summary: Exceptional pictures, love the size of the camera - it enables one to carry it everywhere for fast and spontaneous pictures. Very easy to use. Displays are helpful. Really appreciate the touch screen function. Only downside so far has been the battery icon - it is either full or depleted. Great camera. for everyday use.
Summary: I am a big fan of the Coolpix camera. This is my 4th in 6 years. I use it daily for work, so I am a bit harder on cameras than most people. This one has a lot of extra "bells and whistles" that I don't need, but I'm sure others would like. It takes a great picture and lets you reduce the pixels down small enough to be able to post pictures to web sites that aren't set up for the higher pixel photos yet.
Summary: you can edit photos on the camera. 12X zoom at tiny camera body! and most important - shoot very nice pictures, personally don't like the touch screen because sometimes you can touch it by accident. stopping movie clip is inconvenient.
