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 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.
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.
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)!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
