A great first camera to start taking pictures with. Lots of features built in (my favorite was the panorama assist) that make taking photos extremely easy. I would say this is a great camera to throw in your bag when you go on an outing or trip with friends because it is so convenient and small. The camera uses 2AA batteries which can be bought almost anywhere (I used rechargeable to save on constantly buying). The camera itself is also very sturdy, I've dropped it more than I can count, and ...

Amazing camera if you know how to use it. I purchesed this camera in July 2005, it looked and felt very complicated but I decided I wouldn't use it until I study the manual from start to finish - I did and that's when my pictures have started to amaze me with outstanding quality, color and sharpness. Almost everytime I was showing the pix made by this camera to people, 99% feedback was "what kinda camera do you have!? The pictures are amazing!" Pateince in learning how to use it will give you ...

Really dissapointed with this camera. It was given to me as a present with the chance to change it to another model. I have used many Sony, Canon and fuji compacts and was really pleased with them but I decided to keep it, thinking a Nikon couldn't be bad. I was very wrong! -it struggles to focus under low-lit conditions -there is no explicit focusing target - you are supposed to center the object to focus but this is somewhat ambigous -the flash takes for ever to charge -Picture clarity and ...

As a seasoned SLR user, dedicated Nikon user, and long-time amateur photographer, I purchased this inexpensive digital for a recent trip to Paris. I chose this product on the basis of Nikon reputation, easy transportability and cost. Although my primary goal was to chronicle the trip, my photos were outstanding in every regard. It took little time to learn the basics. This little camera -- that fit anywhere, went everywhere, allowing me to capture shots that now grace my walls (and I am ...

I bought this camera mainly for taking pictures when I travel. A big advantage of this camera is its low power consumption. I use the original Nicon's rechargable batteries and always carry a spair pair of alclaline AA (just in case). Withe one pair of Nicon's rechargables I manage to take about 200 shots. Though I rarely use the flash, but the LCD is always on. The picture quality is excelent if taken in day light. Problems: Low light conditions are not handled well.

Jagnese is a VENDOR trying to knock ritz camera and Nikon. He's posted bad reviews on too many cameras to be a consumer. I've never met a customer who's had "several" cameras and has damaged them all. Unless he's using them to play soccer or baseball. Yeah, canon's are so great. Your problems dissapeare? Copy and paste this into your browser dpreview.com/reviews/read_opinion_text.asp?prodkey=canon_sd200&opinion=26440.html Problems: Does not work well as a soccer ball or baseball. Oddly seems ...

They keep on breaking. Tried three different Nikon cameras and had them all fail after a month or so. Switched to a Canon and my problems disappeared. Should not have let the salesman at Ritz talk me into this one. Problems: Had two of these cameras and the lens failed to function in both. You cannot put these cameras in even a protected pocket and expect them to continue functioning. They are the most fragile cameras I have ever used. My advice is to go for the Canon. I got a comparable ...

I bought this camera to replace a Canon Powershot s30. I had also looked at the Canon sd-300 but heard so many problems with the lcd cracking, I was scared off. I liked the ergonomics of the Nikon, but definitely did not like the picture quality. It did not hold a candle to the Canon s30 (I hope I am not comparing apples to oranges here). So I returned it and bought the sd 300 and paid about an extra $100 for the damage protection plan with Ritz. It's too bad. I liked everything about ...
