I have owned a 3200 for over 12 months, when i first got the 3200 my family and i were blown away by the image quality and how good the photos turned out. This was our first digital camera we had bought and moving from a film camera to the 3200 was absolutly amazing when it comes to the quality of the photos. We purchased the camera to take on an over seas trip, when we returned our friends had done the same trip and when comparing that they took a film camera and not a digital camera they ...

I was looking for a good deal, meaning a good balance between price and quality. The camera is well built, lighter than the 3100, and small enough so as to put it in your palm. It has a good image quality and reasonable features. One of the most impressive features is that it consumes much lower batteries (Ni-Metal, 2500 mAmp) than the 3100. I have been using it with a pair of brand new Sanyo batteries since 10 days ago, and the low batt signal has not even appeared yet. However, I am not an ...

Wow what an awesome camera. I know I have a good camera once I see the pictures, and I've been blown highway by the images created by this camera. Excellent color, great metering, sharp, a little bit noisy in darker situations but doesn't bother me too much since I don't use this camera seriously, but for fun. I like the compact size of the camera and the use of AA batteries. The unlimited movie with sound is really cool too. Displays images quick and is very responsive. It would've been ...

This is my first digicam & I purchased it for a trip overseas last year, after researching the options for about 6 months on this and other websites. I was very pleased with the cameras functions as a holiday P&S. Shooting performance was quite acceptable after turning off the animation, shutter lag was there, but better than my old film camera. Its strong points for me were;AA batteries - I purchased a spare set of rechargeables & in a 4 week trip only ran out of juice once- no problems ...

I purchased two of these cameras for use by a pair of young photographers, after an unfortunate experience with the cheaper Olympus D-535. The Olympus cameras were exchanged for the Nikons. I had hoped to get Canon A75s as replacements, but the dealer had sold out. I compared the image quality with our family Canon A70 and found the colour balance to be slightly cooler with the Nikon. The images when enlarged showed significantly greater noise on the Nikon, and areas of flat colour in the ...

I bought the CP3200 as a pocket-size back-up for my D-70 to take on a vacation to Hawaii. I normally don't like cameras that use AA batteries, but in this case was specifically looking for that feature because I knew the camera would sit in a drawer unused for long periods and I didn't want to worry about keeping batteries charged and ready. The CP3200 met all my expecations, although battery life with alkalines could be better (I averaged ~50 shots per battery set). I used the camera most ...

I got a 3200 for my wife for Christmas,on the 27 th she went to Paris. With about a half hour or less of instruction on the use of her new 3200. We got a 256 card, and set it on auto, with extra batterys, and a camera bag, we allready had and off she went to visitor Son. Well I have to say I am really impressed with pictures she got, Regardless of the setting indoors, outdoors,night time, bright sun or cloudy they are really good.Yes point and shoot she isn't a pro at all, but she is really ...

Perfect travel camera. Incredibly compact - I wear it in a small pouch on my belt when travelling and hardly know it's there. Very comfortable to hold and easy to use. Ideal for newbie to digitals. Great battery life. I use lithium non-rechargables travelling for convenience and one lasts about 400 shots! Problems: Motion shots are hard to capture due to shutter lag. Pictures are great printed at 4 X 6 except in low light and get grainy with blow-up. No competition in its class, but I ...
