Nikon Coolpix 885 review

Piece of @$*#! Constant "SYSTEM ERROR"s! Removing battery for a minute used to fix it, so I didn't bother sending it in. Now it is totally locked up, and no longer under warranty. Nothing will clear the system error! Nikon wants tons of money to fix it. It was broken when I bought it! I will never buy another Nikon product!!!

DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA!!!

Problems:

constant "SYSTEM ERROR" messages

eventually locked up completely

often had one bright red dot somewhere in the image

took FOREVER to store images onto memory card! had to wait and wait between shots. Missed lots of photo opportunities!

Nikon unwilling to admit to manufacture defect and recall or fix for free!

NEVER BUY NIKON!!!
