Firmware is awful
Mar 26, 2012

Yes, the camera is tough and takes good video most of the time but taking photos is a total crap shoot.
The auto modes often end up with either uneven exposures, far too much motion blur, excessive glare and flare, or just look overly grainy.

The numerous 'scene' modes just don't work well. I've spent quite a bit of time trying to make this camera work. After a couple of hundred photos (and only about 10% of those any good at all) I'm sorry to say that as much as I've tried to love this camera it's just not going to work out between us.

Try again Nikon.
