Summary: I love this camera. The pictures it takes are very clear. I've used it on trips to Brazil, Florida, Alabama, and I will be taking it to Africa this summer. The zoom is very clear. The videos are good quality as long as you aren't zoomed in too far.
Summary: Very nice camera, easy to understand, takes great photos. BUT the one I have is a lemon. Had problems early on that were resolved with a call to the Nikon tech service. Then just at the one year mark (and of course during an extended road trip), the lens randomly would work or not.
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...
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.
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.
