Super slow camera - not for photographing kids/family

Summary: I bought this without doing the research I normally would as my last camera was stolen December 23 and I need a new one PRONTO for Christmas. I liked the size of it and it feels sturdy, it has a nice large screen and unlike my old camera you can zoom in and out while taking movies, although I think that is standard now. It takes good pictures if you are outside and have good lighting.
Summary: I have a large DSLR but did not want to lug it around Disney World. I opted for this camera instead. It was perfect for a small point and shoot and I loved all the auto modes. I don't want to spend a long time messing around with settings. I have rides to ride and characters to greet. At the end of the day you are paying for a decent point and shoot camera, and that is exactly what you will get.
Summary: I chose this camera as an impulse buy. The box said all the cool stuff: 1080p video, 18x optical zoom, 18.1 megapixel sensor, etc. I thought the price was a little higher than it was worth but I bought it anyway. This camera does not have a PASM control. Instead it tries to automate as much as possible. In other words, this is marketed as a foolproof camera. The problem is the camera is a bit slow in making up it's mind.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my Nikon 8200, (excellent), which i accidentally left on the car roof and drove away. It didn't survive. I have a Panasonic bridge camera which i use for most of my photography, but i like to take a smaller camera when i go walking, or visiting, something that wont be in the way,but will produce good results. This Nikon fits the bill perfectly. It easily fits in a jacket pocket, but not so trousers or jeans.
Summary: I bought this camera after having researched at various websites for a hopefully unbiased opinion. It had very good reviews and was selling well below suggested price. I like it a lot and am still trying to learn all the things it can do, so mostly use it on auto mode. This is because there was not a booklet with it. You can download a pdf file and print it if you want to use all your paper up. Not to mention the cost of the ink.
Summary: I bought this camera about 3 weeks back for my Europe holiday trip with family. We already have one canon camera though. I found this extremly handy and useful. Picture quality is great. Overall very useful. Now two issues I faced with this camera. 180 degree panorama worked good to large extent. 8 out of 10 times I could use 180 degree panorama. 360 degree panorama I could not use it failed 100% of the time. Also Battery could have been better and lasting little longer.
