Not a fun of this camera

Renata Schluss, Amazon
22 May 2014
  • Summary: There is a big delay between pressing the button and in fact taking the photo - which is not a good thing if you bought this camera to take photos of kids ;) The display screen is large, but the shape of the camera is somehow too small or thin so I had the feeling I will drop the camera easily - so I did and it broke into pieces. I still have my old cannon camera which was dropped by my daughter and myself numerous times and it looks bitten up, but still works.

Don't Get It!

John Mischke, Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: Don't buy this camera! Ok, don't get me wrong: it's a Nikon and takes great pictures. And it's compact, sleek and sexy with a cool rubberized slide to uncover the protected lens and turn it on. Good zoom too. But... the touchscreen is hard to use and a little unresponsive. Way too hard to change any settings. Would have been nice to not have the zoom control on the touchscreen. And a touch slow on it's time from turning it on to taking your first shot.

  • Summary: Excited the price was too good to be true. Worked well for 3 days then the screen went out. Started getting blue lines then went completly black. The picture quality was good but the touch screen was difficult to use when it worked. Also had a problem with it opening in my pocket and draining the battery. Returned and did not replace it.

Too Many Flaws

A. Cana, Amazon
26 August 2011
  • Summary: I got this camera for vacation in Hawaii. Immediately I discovered some major flaws. 1. The touch screen is not the most time efficient. There's a lag (maybe Im spoiled with the iPad). Also when looking through pictures, if you wanna delete one it'll take you all the way back to the beginning of the set. 2. The lens is on to way top left corner on a thin camera so unless you know correctly every time, it's easy to get your finger in the corner of the pic. 3.

Hit Or Miss Quality & Functionality

Perfectly Funny Wanderer, Amazon
16 May 2011
  • Summary: The camera just came out but doesn't live up to the hype and reviews I had read. This is based on about 2 weeks of use, indoor and outdoor, including an indoor speaker event, a large outdoor rally on the mall in Washington DC, a party, a hike in a park during autumn, and various other activities. The camera is physically well-designed and manufactured with quality materials & construction. Biggest Issue: picture quality is hit-or-miss, mostly miss.

Cute, but has quality problems

John Nagle "downside", Amazon
13 April 2011
  • Summary: It's very cute, but it's not very well made. Out of the box, it had a dark area near the right of the imager. I sent it back to Nikon's west coast repair center, where the optics were cleaned. That fixed the dark area. It tends to freeze up when playing back its own video. When it freezes, not only does the touch screen do nothing, but it won't power off. The battery has to be removed to reset it. This happened twice today.

  • Summary: This camera is a great idea but it has issues that need some working out. It is slow to zoom in and out. It also is hard sometimes to get clear pics due to any movement at all causes blurring and streaks, you really can't be spontaneous with it you have to be focused and VERY still. It also throws some yellows in pics not needed!! I have had many digital cameras and this one is the biggest disappointment of all of them!

Cheap feel, not very responsive

mike, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: This Nikon S80 is not the digital camera for a traveler who likes to do "point and shoot" - the OLED touch screen controls are not responsive, and on top of that, it takes a while for the setting configuration to be ready for the next shot. The camera is very light with the standard Nikon battery, however, the plastic is so thin the camera feels cheap, and the shutter button gets stuck all the time, so it would take the picture before it completes focusing on the image.

Bad Luck and Bad Pics

Bart, Amazon
21 December 2010
  • Summary: Had it for 3 weeks and 148 pics later, it wouldn't turn on or charge. Had to take it back. Bad Luck I guess, but before that happened I; Used the camera for my boys basketball game. Would not keep up even in sport mode. Pics were blurry. Tried other modes, but couldn't seem to get it to take clear pics. Held it really tight, thinking it was me, but very difficult. I did get some good photos though. Maybe more practice needed.
