I brought this to Europe with me and I was very disappointed. It's so SLOW

charlotte, Amazon

  • Summary: It's a alright camera if you don't know much about photography. I brought this to Europe with me and I was very disappointed. It's so SLOW!!! I wish I would of tested it more before I took it on my trip because I would have returned it. It's such a waste!

  • Summary: Camera was pretty good. Photos with motion come out blurry with various settings. After a little over a year (just after the warranty) the camera stopped functioning spontaneously. Sent to Nikon for repairs and they never called or emailed to let me know what was going on.

I have had MUCH better point-and-shoot cameras

KISS Photography Dallas, Amazon
18 July 2014
  • Summary: I have had MUCH better point-and-shoot cameras. This one is really slow and doesn't produce as good of an image as my little kodak water camera. I LOVE Nikon DSLRs and was hoping this would be a good medium-grade solution to carry in my purse. I am nearly always disappointed with the image quality.

Lens Problems & Poor Support

  • Excerpt: 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.

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.

Camera was sold as NEW and it was NOT.

amber allen, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this new Nikon for my mom's birthday. It was either refurbished or used. The camera box looked old. It was marred, had scuff marks on it, was not sealed with tape. There was an old piece of tape on the bottom with hair and fuzz on it. The lid had notches out of the sides of it.

Problems you wouldn't expect from Nikon

Jerold D. Tierney "Jerold Tierney", Amazon
30 May 2014
  • Summary: I just returned from a 6 week vacation in Europe and had this as my only camera. I bought it primarily for it's size to fit in a pocket. The photo quality was ok. The off / on switch is awkward and slow.

If you need to very Close-Up photos this camera doesn't work - Beware!

qtdiscoveries, Ebay
14 May 2014
  • Summary: The camera will not focus if I try to use the Zoom feature in Close-up mode, which is a major problem for eBay Sellers. Nikon reviewed some sample images and said the camera had to be repaired, so I'm stuck using my eight year old camera for who knows how long until I get this one back.
