BAd experience with Nikon Digital. Very easy to break down Problems: MI NEFASTA EXPERIENCIA CON UNA NIKON DIGITAL En Mayo de 2002 adquirí una Nikon Coolpix en el conocido establecimiento de fotografía “ARPI SERRA” de Barcelona. Al año de su compra, la cámara cayó de una altura de 42 cm al suelo. La cámara no presentaba ningún daño externo y al accionar la puesta en marcha “funcionaba”: la pantalla digital mostraba la imagen, enfocaba, reproducía las imágenes grabadas. Pero al accionar el ...

Problems: Well, I suffered the dreaded "System Error" for the last time this weekend. Now the camera is frozen and so I sent it off to the dealer to be repaired/replaced. With any luck, they won't be able to replace it and I can get a refund. A Google for "Nikon Coolpix 885 System Error" gives pages of this same sort of problem.

I will never buy another Nikon as my 885 crashed a week into ownership from new with the dreaded System Error message and everything frozen. It was replced under warranty but the 2nd one has developed the same fault one month out of warranty and Nikon will not replace it FOC. Readin users reports on the web I see this is a very common problem. The camera has not been dropped, knocked, got wet or been kept in a humid enviroment. Problems: Both 885's I've had from new broke with the same fault ...

I use this camera for 2 months starting August 2002, and were frustrated with the various problems. 1. Horrible strong red saturation ( even after firmware upgrade to 1.2 2. Horrible level of noise in indoor shots even at ISO100. 3. Extremely bad Chromatic Aberration in high contrast 3. Very slow response in starting up 4. Very slow shutter response when you turn off the LCD and use the viewfinder. The only good thing is that the size is small and convenient to carry about. I finally sold in ...

Do not buy this camera!! There are two main faults - the well known red problem. I tried to take pictures of bricks for my new house and the colors were so far off that they were useless! Less well known is the fact that you can't turn off the LCD and use the viewfinder. There is like a 4sec shutter delay when you try this. As a result, battery life is miserable. Also unacceptable is the very slow wake-up time after auto shut down. I had mine for 10 months and just traded it in on a ...

Returned after 7 days. I returned this camera after 7 days. For several reasons: 1.) The Red. I really doubted this was going to be a problem, I was a complete skeptic after viewing all of the online photos closely. But when I began looking at pictures of my dogs (Weimaraners) that should have been grey/brown there were red blotches all over them. No amount of gamma or color adjustment was going to fix this. My dogs are my principal photographic subject. If it can't get their color ...

After my CP 950(very good camera) and my Canon Ixus,i buy this camera,about two months ago. This time Nikon does not work nice. Magenta is very strong and time to start up from off-to-run is very long (about 12 sec!!). Addition to this is that the wiewfinder is like a tube and necessity is to work with display on. I d'ont like this ,cause istability if the camera is not against eye. Good performance of battery Good optical zoom (but not digital) Very difficolt to see display in direct sunlight ...
