Summary: Pictures are okay... I thought they'd be crisper and better in low light. I am EXTREMELY disappointed with the built-in wi-fi option. It's not quick, it's not easy, and really, why bother... Certain "things" need to be set in place for you to even be able to enable the wi-fi option. Super annoying when you don't have a manual handy. I hate how it shows you the option, but you can't change anything on it unless these "conditions" are met. Screw it. Cumbersome. Crap.
Summary: I have had my camera for 4 months now. It takes great pictures and video and has cool features. I like being able to send pics to my phone to upload to fb. Its not an easy or quick thing to upload and often freezes up during the process. I have had a lot of problems with my camera freezing up. It always freezes with the zoom out and wont power off or do anything (freezes). Usually I can just let it sit for awhile 30 min or so and it will restart.
Summary: It's very nice little camera. It's very small and has a zoom as good as can be realistically used with a camera of this kind. The battery is rechargeable but doesn't last very long so get a spare one. It has a bunch of useful pre-programmed modes so those of us that are not good photographers can still take some pretty amazing pictures. Get the fastest memory card you can find because this camera is sluggish when saving and deleting pictures.
Summary: This was my second and last Nikon product. My first, the Coolpix 6100, suffered problems with the lens opening device, which bent easily and then didn't allow the lens to open or shut. I bought this one, in the fabulous orange color, in July 2013. In August, I dropped it from about 8 inches onto a tile floor, which caused damage to the LCD screen. The damage bled from one corner across half the screen, rendering it non-functional.
Summary: I bought this camera cause it had good reviews and the Canon wasn't available in 16 megapixels where I was. I took it in a trip to use for the first time, and while it does take good pictures, I was disappointed. It took 5-10 seconds to be able to take a picture from the time of turning it on, and a lot of times would take longer between photos (and I turned off the editing).
Summary: Problems: Lots of out of focus photos in strong daylight (with half pressing shutter button, getting focus confirmation beeps, and seeing green brackets displayed). Auto HDR feature delivered very, very, very weak results, like overexposed pastel gray versions of regular non-HDR photos. Auto HDR photos had less dynamic range than regular photos. Lots of camera shake in strong daylight.
Summary: I "wanted" to like this camera! I compared it with my old Sony camera. The colors in the Sony were much more vibrant (Reds, Greens). Another con in comparing the two- in taking photos of family the Nikon pics would come out blurry vs. Sony. I was using Anti Vibration but there is no comparison. Taking this one back.
Pros: cool photo options (monochrome miniature effect) good zoom power clear distinctive photos (no shadowing)
Cons: colors not vibrant blurry photo unless someone is standing still auto scene selection not quite accurate for photos
Summary: All I want is for the camera to take the picture when I press the button. It seems every few pictures, the camera refuses to do exactly that. I tried several different settings, scenes, etc.to no avail and ended up missing some primo shots. The camera had trouble with indoor shots even when on indoor party mode. It kept using a slow ISP speed which led to lots of blurring.
Summary: It takes great pictures. However, it does not allow you to take multiple pictures without editing the the first picture, i.e., no burst mode. This is very frustrating when you are trying to take picture multiple pictures in rapid succession. I returned the camera because I missed my daughter walking across the stage at her graduation (only one picture).
