Handy camera but not the best quality

  • Excerpt: My parents got me this camera for my birthday.  I previously had a Nikon Coolpix but the lens wouldn't close and I loved how small and compact it was.  I have had the camera for about 6 months and am not as happy with it as I thought I would be.  My pictures constantly come out blurry no matter the setting.  I have tried adjusting to all the different options, flash/no flash, and so on.  Still no luck.

Delicate cam with unparalled picture quality

Frederick S. Tomaselli "Fred "OUTBURZT ..., Amazon
25 February 2010
  • Summary: Always had Nikon and Cannon camera. I do not like other brands. This Nikon camera has unmatched features, and picture output for an equal camera. HOWEVER, mine broke its 3rd use. I brought it to the Sundance film festival and the way I was sitting in the movie theater pushed the lens in apparently? I have no idea how that much force actually happened. The camera must have been powered on somehow. I saw someone famous and my girl immediately wanted to take a pic.

Great pictures, but already messing up!

Tasha, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this camera about 2 and a half weeks and I am very disappointed. The pictures it takes are GREAT, however, I am already getting the "Lens Error" problem that others are getting. I called Nikon Support and they have offered to repair it for free, since it's still brand new but I am thinking I am going to just return it and buy another brand. I am afraid that after repairing it, it will have the issue again and then I will need to pay out of pocket.

Slow Start up

4 Oceans, Amazon
9 October 2009
  • Summary: I have been playing with this camera for a month and generally it is a good camera. However, the start up is very slow compare to other Coolpix. It will takes about 7 seconds from pressing the on power to be ready to shot. 7 seconds is forever since other similar cameras are almost instant on. Some pictures turned out darker then I like but can be fix manually with the camera D-Lighting.

  • Summary: It takes great pictures & is portable. It had a good battery life & is easy to use. After 2 months, it needs repair & it takes a fwe seconds to focus, so it's difficult to take moving pictures or quickly.

great camera, poor service

Christa "christa", Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this camera for approx. 4 months. I am so happy with it in every way but one. After about a month, the camera read "lens error" and would freeze open. I assumed this was an isolated incident, but it is now happening with more frequency. I contacted nikon, who told me that this is not a warranty issue. I have searched the internet and have found that this is a surprisingly common issue.

Coolpix is not so cool

L. Black, Amazon
13 January 2009
  • Summary: This is a nice small, lightweight camera with very cool colors to select from. However the sensor is too small for 14MP. The photos are not as sharp as they should be and the shutter speed is a bit too slow for today's standards. I typically shoot with a Nikon D300 and I wanted a smaller camera to have with me all the time. When this one was a disappointment, I got a Fuji that works great.
