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.

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. The contents were randomly all over the box. The camera was in an old, wrinkled piece of foam and it had no plastic protector on the viewfinder.

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. It requires a firm careful push that wastes time and makes it slow for responding to a quick photo opportunity. Occasionally it will freeze and you have to release and reset the battery to get the camera to function.

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. VERY disappointed!

Tons of blurry photos - Cannot capture motion of any kind

Haze Reid "haze1123", Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: This is an OK camera when the subject is absolutely, 100% still and motionless. This camera is terrible at capturing motion of any kind. Motion captured in the frame is always blurry - even a very small amount of motion. I tried putting the scene selector into Sport mode, to avoid the blurriness... But that was no help. This camera gets one star from me because half of the pictures it takes are blurry.

Nikons Coolpix S65OO Camera

  • Summary: I really don't like this camera. No body knows how to download the SD Card to make DVDs.. The battery in the rear makes it combersome and clumbsy.

bad design

Anthony DiMinno, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: Sent one camera back because couldn't get battery to charge. Next one worked for awhile (2 Months) then same problem battery wouldn't charge. Nikon was of little help as they do not admit problem exists. Sent back for repair. I am sure it will not solve the problem. Will up date when repair complete.
