Good Camera, unique extra functions no longer available in later models.

Summary: Ordinarily no comment, as a camera is a camera. This model WAS the 'flagship' model years before, with full manual as well as automatic, and no longer available. I especially liked the CONTINUOUS smile recognition and ENDLESS auto-shutter... used it until either the battery or memory ran out.
Summary: This takes descent photos during the day, but at night, the shots are either too blurry or the flash looks terrible. Also, I bought a leather case that was designed for this model camera (with a magnetic closure), but the camera was a tight fit in it.
Summary: I bought this for my husband who uses an SLR digital Nikon but wanted something smaller that would fit in his pocket when he didn't want to look like a tourist.He loves it. He has used it regularly taking thousands of pictures with it .
Summary: I reviewed this camera right after I bought it in 2009. I was out shooting wildflowers early this spring of 2012. When I crouched down to shoot a Desert Indian Paintbrush closeup in macro mode, the camera slipped out of my hand.
Summary: I thought Nikon was a name I would associate with quality such as in Toyota but that was not the case. In less than a year with very little use, the Nikon stopped working with the lens not opening and closing. Major disappoitment especially for such camera that was purchsed for over $200.
Summary: Camera worked well for about 13 months. Then it asks me to enter date & time each time I power it on. It no longer has the ability to store the info. It's a common problem - search the web to confirm. I contacted Nikon and they say they can fix for a fee.
Summary: Camera is easy to use when it works. I had to send the camera back due to a lens error (out of warranty cost almost as much as the camera). Once returned I got 2 uses out of it (didn't use on the beach with sand - left in a clean room in fact) and the lens servo locked up again. So sad.
Summary: I purchased this item 1 1/2 year ago. It started to show signs of faulty construction after 1 year. I barely used it also. After 6-8 months, a lcd pixel went bad. Then a little after 1 year the flash did not work.
