Ok during the day, terrible at night

Bosto, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • 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. So, a hair from the inside of the case got stuck inside the lens and showed up in every picture!

Not Worth it....

  • 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. I have sent it to Nikon, but they got a confusing RMA process for someone who has never RMA before. I asked a Nikon representative and they said I could just send it in, but read on the website and fill out some RMA ticket to make sure you do it right first.

A bit junky

Wog B, Amazon
24 July 2010
  • Summary: I previously owned a Nikon Coolpix 4200 and after about 3 years of flawless service in conditions ranging from zero degree winter hikes to summer boat trips I thought Nikon made the best point-n-shoots. Maybe they do, but the S710 is an exception. The BIOS chip that holds date/time failed several days into a trip to Spain. I didn't bother fixing it, and probably should have sent it back.

Great Features, HORRIBLE PRODUCT... If that's possible.

  • Summary: Today, 7/1/2010 will be the 3rd LENS ERROR I've gotten on my S710, within two and a half months. I've only owned the camera for 6 months and I've never used it, aside from taking silly pictures to become more familiar with the settings and features of the camera (which might I add are amazing)! None of that matters now because I have an event which I will be needing my camera and now I won't have it to use.

Lens system fails!

Robert S. Shelby "BS", Amazon
6 May 2010
  • Summary: I recently bought this camera and while it takes great pictures, the lens system has failed and will not open. I took it to a repair place and the estimate was as much as the camera cost. They said they had to replace the entire lens system since the gears were stripped. Stripped, after limited use over the last four months? Buyer beware!

Prone to lens problems

Kristin, Amazon
25 January 2010
  • Summary: I purchased a Coolpix S710 in November 2009. A month later the camera displayed lens error. I returned this camera to Amazon and was sent a replacement. Now 5 weeks later the replacement has the same lens error and I have to now return it to Nikon for service. This camera was to replace another Coolpix that I had for over a year before developing a lens error. I recommend looking at other cameras that aren't prone to this problem.

unreliable flimsy construction

YNV, Amazon
24 November 2009
  • Summary: This is the worst compact camera I've owned, it's poorly built and unreliable and I wish I could return it and get my money back. The problems: 1) The build of the lens mechanism is extremely flimsy. Just after 2 months of using this camera some dust or particles got inside and almost every picture we took with it during our vacation was ruined with the black spots. Unfortunately, we were stuck overseas and couldn't return the camera until it was too late.

Absolutely Unreliable

Lowry, Amazon
17 August 2009
  • Summary: My sister and I bought two Nikon Coolpix S710 cameras and they were both a great disappointment. My camera's lens broke before I even started using it. I turned it on for my trip to Washington D.C. but the screen said there was a lens error that couldn't be fixed. I tried turning it on/off, taking out the battery, shaking it, but nothing worked. In the end, I had to ship it back for a new one and I only had it for two days!

Coolpix S710

LYK "Lee", Amazon
19 May 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this camera in five months ago. The picture quality is very good but it started developing problems after 3 months. It will not retain the time and date. It started to freeze up nd could only be turned off or on by removing batteries. I sent it for repair at Nikon authorized center and was quickly told that this defect is not covered under warranty and will cost $99.00 to repair.

  • Conclusion: Byłam w Egipcie,robiłam zdjęcia z nadzieją że pieniądze dobrze wydałam. A to co? Obora nie z tej ziemi. Ziarno na zdjęciach,2 razy wyskoczył mi błąd obiektywu!To przereklamowana atrapa,psuje się jak stary Fiat 126P! Ma jedną zaletę - jest mały i mieści się w kieszeni koszuli.Powinien kosztować 200zł.
