I sent my S710 compact camera to Nikon a month ago for repair. I like the camera because it is one of the few compacts with full manual control.
I can't get a straight story out of Nikon repair. I have called them several times, and actually gotten through to an agent twice. Both times they were unable to tell me where my camera is. The first agent told me that UPS had already delivered a replacement camera. Unfortunately the delivery date was before I had authorized any repair. Then she asked me when I "moved from Idaho." I live in California and have never lived in Idaho. I have an unusual last name. If you just put it in Google with no first you get me. The 2nd agent told me they were replalcing with a dif model which is unacceptable. Both agents asked for more time and said they would call me back tomorrow or in 4 hours. Neither called back. So they already act like a monopoly.
