disappointed

michelle diebold-panasewicz, Amazon

  • 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. And my iphone is way more convenient to upload photos to sites like shutterfly or instagram and facebook.

Shutter got stuck

  • Summary: I've had this camera for a little over 90 days and was purchased at Costco. It takes very nice pictures with a clean slick look but after a few uses the shutter in the lens got stuck. And now when I turn the camera on the shutter does not completely open leaving the photos only taking half the shot the other half is black by the shutter. I'm currently under warranty but sending your camera back for repairs is a lot more troublesome then I expected.

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. But the flash, at shorter ranges, frequently leaves the picture over exposed. Have had some issues with focus and sharpness, beyond what would be normally expected, on higher zoom shots.

VERY Fragile

  • Summary: I really liked the features that the 9500 offered - I replaced my 9100 with this camera to get a longer lens, better resolutioin, and the GPS / Wifi features are excellent.

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

captain america, 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. By the time I realized there was a problem (it took multiple weeks, and then further weeks for me to act on it), it was too late to return it to Amazon, and I had to deal with Nikon support... Here is the transcript below.

Odd focusing in low light

Donna Visocan, Amazon
16 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. This camera might be suitable for someone who wants to adjust settings, but if you are looking for a true point and shoot that auto focuses quickly, this is not the camera for you.

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. The flash is a very poor design that I expect will give me issues down the road. Halfway through my vacation to the great state of Washington, I put this little thing away and broke out my Samsung Galaxy S3.

Achilles' Heel

AaronAbasolo, Amazon
5 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. To add inslt to injury, the supplied USB cable has a heavy ferrite noise-suppressor "lump" in it, making it bulky to carry.
