Fine pics but fragile.

Doc, Amazon

  • Summary: Picture quality is great. Low light capability is impressive. Light. Feels good in my hand. My only complaint is that the lens while zoomed out is very fragile. I realize that it was not meant to be a hammer but even light knocks, taps, or pressure will knock the lens elements " off track ".

disappointed

  • Summary: Unfortunately the wifi feature was not easy to set up and use, which is one of the reasons I bought this camera. And after comparing the photos from this camera to the photos from my iphone 5s... they looked pretty much the same.

The battery was defective, and Nikon doesn't seem to care

Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement camera for my wife's. She rarely uses a camera, but her previous one would keep a charge for multiple weeks. With this one, the battery ran out in a matter of hours.

Not as good as expected

John S, Amazon

  • Summary: Lot's of technology in this. Case seems cheaply made, to cut on costs. Do not like the pop up flash (preferred the built in of my old Lumix), particularly as it pops up right where I usually put my left index finger. Standard pictures are generally good.

Works ok, until it doesn't

  • Summary: I bought this in April 2013, and initially was very pleased. I really like the wifi feature to upload pics to my phone. But the picture quality has not wowed me, and my 8 megapixel Olympus outperforms this one in crispness and detail.

Odd focusing in low light

Donna Visocan, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: I've owned several Nikon Coolpix cameras and wanted this one for its high zoom capability. Unfortunately, the camera's inability to focus on things in low light caused me to return this one. I also did not like the pop-up flash which was located exactly where you hold the camera.

Achilles' Heel

AaronAbasolo, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: This camera has a BIG weak spot, you cannot charge one battery while using the camera with a second battery, since the battery has to be IN THE CAMERA to charge it using the included charger, which is just a USB power supply which connects to the camera via a non-standard USB connector.

Focus problems in low light

S. Pollock, Amazon

  • Summary: When I first got the camera, I really liked it. * The zoom lens is excellent, I got some nice shots of birds and buildings * The macro works well; got nice shots of wildflowers; great color, etc. * The panorama feature worked well about 50% of the time.

Not impressed.

Paul, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: I was hoping for a simple to use point and shoot camera with WiFi. What I got for my $300 was a cool WiFi camera that takes marginal photos at best. I have an old clunker from Olympus that takes comparable quality photographs. The Auto setting seems useless.
