Pros: 1. It was cheaper than most pocket zooms (but for a reason) 2. Quite a brick in the hand - felt solid 3. Fast "on". 4. Menu system better than average. 5. Pretty screen - but it didn't help see image flaws.
Cons: 1. Excessive, destructive noise reduction. 2. Poor auto-exposure; chooses 1/10s but IS can't handle it. 3. Features like panorama don't work well. 4. Heavy, large, corners too sharp - not a "pocket zoom" 5. IS can't handle 18X; blurry.
Pros: This camera was perfect for 2 wks & then the lens mechanics failed. Initially it took fast clear shots. Excellent night photos. Great stabilization. Fantastic all-round point & shoot + some cool effect options that were easy to use.
Cons: Lasted only 2 wks. Sent it in multiple times under warranty and it was returned each time with same mech. failure - Nikon stated it was cleaned and fixed each time. No longer useable - takes blurry shots & continuous shot function doesn't work.
Cons: Breaks easily. The camera seems to have a severe lens issue. Mine has had to be repaired twice already in the warranty period. It does not appear to have been built to handle normal usage. I travel and it is in my carryon bag in a camera case so it does g
Summary: After day of shooting my camera froze and didn't respond to keys. Charging the battarey in camera using USB cable didn't get it work back. Only extracting battarey for some hours helped me. Now camera seems working again.
Summary: I am having the same freezing issue that many other have had. The camera will turn on, but remains inoperable, then you must remove the battery to turn it off. I have only been using it for three weeks so it sounds like I'll be sending back for repair like everyone else. I thought this would be the do-it-all digital camera that would last for a few years- I was wrong.
