Nikon Coolpix SQ review
Dec 15, 2003

a friend of mine need a small digicam, i did some research and conclude that the ideal cam for her is either nikon 2100 or 3100. i reluctant to suggest canon a60 or a70 since she is a novice in photography.
when we get to the store, all technical details regarding 2100 and 3100 went to drain as she saw the cute shape of SQ. i didnt object her choice since it bares the same brand, nikon, for which i trust.
however, after testing it for a week, i regret for not objecting as she chosed SQ. the image quality is very noisy (even thou i check the ISO is already low / 70). the flash is not powerfull. compared to nikon 2500 that i have used, this cute baby is very dissapointing.
i put 5 for construction as the shape is indeed beautifull. 5 for features, as the menu is quite extensive, even a bit confusing (3 for ease of use). i put image quality as 2 (below what i expect from nikon)

Problems:

image quality is not as good as other niikons (2100, 2500, 3100).
