Great features Bad quality

Daniel Saliba, Amazon
21 December 2011
  • 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. I bought a Cannon now and so far it has been good.

Poor quality.

  • 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. I argued it's a defect and they should repair for free. I told them they must know it's their problem - simply do a web search. They remain firm it's out of warranty and I must pay.

Good camera when it works

  • 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: well, I should have heeded the warnings of a large number of people who submitted negative reviews of this camera... but I figured... what are the chances that the problem would continue in the 4 (I know, I'm an idiot) cameras that I bought for Christmas gifts in 2009... They were a good deal at the time...

Do NOT buy from Nikon

mdabs, Amazon

  • Summary: No matter what a great deal you think you're getting, don't buy this camera. It will only cause you headache later on. Unfortunately, I had the same lens error that many many others have experienced due to Nikon's defective product. Here's my story: I had the lens error since day 1. It normally fixed itself after an hour.

Christmas Disappointment!

Connie the Crazy Cropper, Amazon
20 April 2010
  • Summary: I gave this camera to my twenty year old daughter and the lens is stuck open. She has tried recharging the battery, but the lens still won't close or take photos! What a disapointment for her and waste of money for me!

  • Summary: The camera does not hold up well...I have had it for a year and it's broken twice with the same issue as other reviewers, "lens error". Nikon will not do anything about it. I won't ever buy another Nikon product.

A huge disappointment

Landenberg Lady, Amazon
14 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera about 15 months ago to do dual duty for snapshots and to take photographs of children's quilts for my website, blog and marketing materials. At first it was great. Then, after 4 months, it started asking me for the date every time I turned it on. I sent it in for repair. Nikon was good about that and supposedly put in a whole new chip.

Totally useless and confusing.

A. Mann "Commercial Artist", Amazon
13 December 2009
  • Summary: If you are buying a camera with features for manual control and low light settings, this is not your choice. The menus are unbelievably confusing, the focus auto assist (low light) works only out from 3-5 ft. (App) with no manual focus that I could find in it's totally confusing menus.

Very disappointing purchase

J. Trindade, Amazon
10 December 2009
  • Summary: This camera has been a pain in the neck... First let's bare in mind this is the most expensive model Nikon has to offer in this category... Now.... Like most other point and shoot cameras, the performance in low light/indoor situations is very poor... Shortly after I purchased it however, the real disappointments came along...
