Just purchased camera over the (2001) holidays. I do not have experience with other digital cameras. I have extensive experience with SLR film. Regardless, I agree with other user about annoying digital noise impacting facial skin tone/appearance even under "perfect" ambient lighting conditions. Plus red eye function seems to have limits. According to distributor, they've had similar complaints about image quality that surprised them as well. I'm returning camera. Problems: Refer to review.

A good point & shoot, great Matrix Meter and snapshots. If you are buying a used one on eBay, though--keep in mind one thing--"System Error" on the LCD. It's fatal. More on that later. I bought one in August 2003 and sold it in May 2004 after getting a Coolpix 5700. Then I decided I wish I still had a point & shoot for "everyday" things where the 5700 would be overkill and I bought a different camera similar in class & specifications to the CP775--a Sony DSC-P50. The AF assist of the Sony ...

While this camera is a lower end, taken as such it was very enjoyable to own. It was my first digital camera, however sadly I left it on a train in SF. Anyhow, I have an extensive knowledge of computers and working knowledge of Photoshop in my background, and so am fairly picky about my digital toys. I was planning on upgrading to a camera with an uncompressed file format, but really enjoyed this camera. Its scene modes seemed to make a decent difference and the white balance controls ...

This is a wonderful small digicam which has been a workhorse for me. It's small size allows me to carry it anywhere and doesn't get in the way. I am very impressed with the fine quality of the photos I get with it. The response is slow as is typical with this type of camera, but nothing unusual. The price has fallen a lot since I bought mine, making it a better buy. This is a real nice one for beginners and serious photographers alike. I recommend it to everyone. Problems: None

Bought it 18 months ago and I'm over 12.000 photo's now. The photo quality is very good for a 2.1 megapixel camera. Even prints of 13 x 18 cm look pretty good as long as you don't use a magnifier. If it was for photo's only I wouldn't be looking at the Coolpix 5400. But longer movieclips with sound, timelapse, 28 mm, 3 fps and faster photo to photo time are all things I really want to have so I'm going to switch. Problems: Up to 11.000 pictures I had no problem whatsoever. But during my ...

I have had a 775 for two years, I've dropped it, banged it around and its still ticking. I believe that the camera delivers a good image. I have played around with all the controls and options and have been very satisfied. I have taken a few thousand images and it has never failed me. Its not the camera that my coolpix 4500 is, but it shouldnt be. Problems: didnt care for nikon view 4

Bad colors. Slow. Poor night shots. Problems: I have read many cases in forums about people who had serious problems with focus and lens. I have had to send mine twice to fix because of lens problem. My brother has the same camera and he just sent his to fix because of focus problem. We are both awaiting our cameras to be returned from nikon, who has charged very high price for fixing it and is taking a long long time. This camera has the worst construction possible, avoid it even if it is ...

I was very excited when I bought this camera because of the form factor. I was very disapointed in the shutter and startup delay. The flash is very poor and the camera does not focus at all in low light situations. The macro is good in non-flash situations - one feature I really liked. Problems: Besides the normal "soft focus" the camera always had it started not focusing at infinity. After tapping on it in the front it started focusing again. Somehow the one of the lens elements got lose. It ...
