Great features, poor picture quality

  • Summary: This is my second huge disappointment on a Nikon point-and-shoot. The features on this camera are excellent for its size, and the lens seems very decent. However, the .jpg files (I shoot using .jpg fine) almost always look solarized, with very heavy pixelation. They would not make any print greater than 4x6, in spite of the high megapixels. I am surprised that this camera has been rated higher than 2 by anyone because of this problem.

Disappointing overall due to small sensor and high megapixel noise in images

  • Summary: I bought this as a possible replacement for a Panasonic ZS25 along with an Olympus SH-1. I ended up returning this camera. This camera started going downhill the second I turned it on. There was an obvious speck of dust/dirt on the CCD sensor straight out of the box that was noticeable in every picture with a solid background.

  • Summary: The main reasons I bought this camera was for the WiFi and manual modes. The first couple days I used it I was very happy with it, but on our trip to Las Vegas it started to act up.

Not real happy with this camera at this point... (Edit)

  • Summary: I've had the camera for almost month and took a lot of pictures in Las Vegas. The last day there I noticed that the focusing was not working and the image in the viewfinder was flickering back and forth. When I tried to take a picture it was blurry. The main reasons I bought this camera was for the WiFi and manual modes. The camera has a lot of bells and whistles but I'm very disappointed in the way it all of a sudden had these malfunctions.

Flash pops up - even when not in use - annoying

MichNikon, Nikon

  • Summary: Bought it from Best Buy last week & probably will return it next week. Camera is good & video fantastic quality. However, the flash is going to break. Accidental pressure on top of camera, (either holding it OR returning it to camera case) and suddenly the flash pops up - even when camera is turned off. Flash too sensitive & not placed in appropriate, non-useful spot. The thick book of instuctions only has approx. brief 25 pages in your language.
