Just bought, already broken.

Will, Nikon

  • Summary: We just picked up this camera and it broke on the first real attempt to use it. Missed out on graduation photos thanks to the lens getting stuck. It was never dropped or damaged in any way. The camera will be returned today and replaced with a different brand.

Questionable

ssd, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Worked once, then wouldn't come on again...battery seemed to be full and ready to go. Cute and perfect size for my pocketbook but questionable as refurbished.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Small / Compact

  • Pros: Nothing

Find another camera

Marvin J Anderson, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The camera will not auto focus for close up pictures. The battery does not last very long - less than a day of shooting - and takes quite awhile to recharge; since recharging is through the camera itself rather than a separate charger, you can't use it while recharging. Not recommended.

Steer clear of this!!!

shellync, Nikon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this camera last spring before a family vacation. Used it a couple days prior to make sure it was ok. Went on vacation & the 4th day in the middle of taking pics the screen went black. The lens would open but the screen stayed black. I did everything the troubleshooting said to do to no avail. Called the company & they had me return it, which I did. I received it back, charged it & the lens totally wouldn't open at all!

Bad choice

Sandy Filson, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera at the end of September 2013, and used it on one overseas trip.2 days prior to a major trip at the end of November I decided to check the battery.The camera would not turn on i.e. the lens would not extract in spite of the charged battery.I hastily replaced it with a Canon Power Shot for my imminent trip. Nikkon will not repair it under the warranty, and wants $109.00 to fix it..Nikkon says the HDMI port contacts are smashed.

Impossible to transfer pix to computer

Beth Tebe, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • Summary: It's the 3rd day of trying to figure out how to transfer pictures from the camera to my computer. My husband has even called Nikon to no avail! Shouldn't you simply be able to plug your camera into your computer and transfer a photo? You'd think so. But not with this camera. I haven't had the other problems reviewers are saying, but it's not worth having a camera where you need to practically take a college course in order to learn how to transfer a photo.

DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA

Mindy Butler, Amazon
8 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this camera for my daughter's surprise birthday trip to Disneyland. I received it the the first part of September took a few test shots with it and then took it with us the end of October. Half way through the trip it stopped working. After we got home I sent it in for repair. It's a brand new camera there has to be something wrong with it right? They wanted to charge me $116 to fix a brand new camera. No thank you.
