Summary: When it was new this camera had a quick reaction time now thousands of snaps later it is slow to react, the lens often gets stuck in the open mode and nothing can be done with it except to wait... then press the on of button and pray it will close and resume, which it does but meanwhile shots are lost and past...Also, it is not good with capturing quick action snaps ie from a moving vehicle snap is blurry...
Summary: Received the camera yesterday: can't charge the battery. And according to the service rep, buying and external charger and/or a new battery might do the trick. I would think Nikon could sell cameras that work out of the box. Very disappointed . Won't buy a Nikon product any time soon.
A very easy to use camera, that takes great photos, and video in Hi-definition.

Summary: I have only used this camera for a short time, and still learning how to use all the different settings; but from what I have use, it takes great photos, takes a little time to learn how to use the panoramic settings, but once you figure it out, is does a great job, in viewing the entire area. I also paid a nice price for this camera, as it list for $299.00, and I purchased it for $179.00.
Summary: I love this camera! It's great to have the added zoom with the convenient small size. I take it with me I don't have the room for my D90, and I still want those great close-ups. Most recently I had it with me at a professional baseball game, and my photos are the envy of my friends and family!
Excerpt: I recently treated my mother to this camera for Christmas because she had something rather old, which wasn't up to speed with the latest technology and quality. I did extensive research on finding a good, easy to use and high quality camera within a budget of around £150. This was my decision and after playing with the camera for a good week or two, I am happy with the choice we made.
