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.
Summary: I really regret buying this camera when it just came out. There were no reviews, and I paid a price for jumping the gun. Although it is compact and lightweight, the image quality is undependable - some outside shots are great; some are lousy. The flash is unpredictable. Even when I have selected a flash picture, it will work, then with the next shot, won't work (two shots in sequence).
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 was very much an update for me . I like the features it has and the touch screen. But ultimately I had trouble using it many photos were blurred and had my finger in them because the camera is clumsy to use....so I ended up returning it.
Summary: The camera is difficult to take pictures. My finger gets in the way of lens. To close to the edge. It is not easy to use the zoom in and out feature. I called best buy to return and there return policy on camera's is only 14 days not even enough time to use and figure it out.. Buyers be ware !
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!
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.
Summary: Completely disappointed. The one i purchased and sent back had orbs in almost every photo taken at multiple locations with different lighting etc. Many photos were blown out but the majority were fine with the exception of the orbs. The size was great if slim is what you're after but if pictures worth keeping is what you're after i'd save some bucks and look elsewhere.
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.
