WIFI won't allow you to xfer images to PC

wadehnelson, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought a camera with WIFI just ASSUMING I could use WIFI to upload my pictures to my PC/Mac. No more cables and microscopic connectors. Stupid me; I should have read the fine print. It can only interface with cellphones for remote control and such.

A Gift of Anguish

MichaelEberle, Nikon
26 July 2014
  • Summary: Received this camera 1 year 3 months ago as a gift. Used it outside of the house 3x's after researching how to use it because the provided instructions are minimal at best. ("how to use features" may have been written in another language that completes 75% of these instructions) Now all the camera does is "Lens Fail" when turned on. Nikon wants $79 + S&H to fix it? I'm now a proud owner of a $170 "door stop"!

Great Affordable Camera

LawDawg, Adorama
21 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this camera as a wedding present for my new wife. We took this on our honeymoon and was really pleased with it. It takes very nice pictures and the functions are easy to navigate. One thing that is annoying is the start-up time. When the camera turns on, it takes approx 3 secs for the camera to actually be ready to take a picture. I would really like to be able to take photos in RAW, but this camera does not have it.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life

NIKON COOLPIX S6500

Joyce Anne Laird "writer", Amazon
11 July 2014
  • Summary: This was a replacement for my Coolpix S6300. The S6300 still works great, but the little silver cap on the shutter popped off somewhere in the house and I could not find it. That didn't stop it from taking great pix, but I had to depress the shutter with a fingernail on the exact shutter pin on top. A bit awkward. So, I simply figured, "just upgrade" & give this one to Goodwill. Maybe they can find a cap for it.

Lens Problems & Poor Support

apra, Nikon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: We have owned two of these cameras. They provide everything we look for in a simple point and shoot. However both cameras have developed lens problems. On the first the telescopic function often malfunctions. On the other, the lens aperture does not close completely. On the second, it failed within the warranty period. I mailed to the service center address provided with the warranty. After 3 weeks it was returned by USPS as undeliverable. I called support.

Terrible camera

  • Summary: Pictures are terrible. I can take one good one and the next 3 will turn out dark. The zoom is good but that is about all. I wasted my money on this camera.

  • Summary: Outperforms all expectations-great camera for the money. The only negative is the on/off button is a little difficult to activate. Highly recommend.
