I traded this camera with a random person on craigslist, not many options were available to me. But I don't consider my trade to be much of a loss. It's quite a lovely small camera, fits in my pocket and the photos look okay as long as your ISO level doesn't go above 400 and you don't look at the images at full size. Certainly was better than my old Konica Minolta Dimage Z5 DSLR. (that was rubbish) Long story short, if you're being gifted this camera or you have no better option about ...

Mama said "You get what you pay for." I bought two of these for laptop bag carry-arounds, blue for wife, black for me, but we found the lenses so soft and the color balance so bad that we hardly ever bothered with them. I love Nikon. I've had many and still have a D70, a D2x, and two recently-bought S8100s. The S8100 is what I wanted when I bought these S220s. This is a good kid's camera if you can get one for about $40. Anything more than that and I would say LEAVE IT. Flash performance is ...

Owned this camera for a couple of months but have sold it. It promised to be great and disappointed in use. The images were particularly soft and blurry around the edges with a large amount of fringing and chromatic aberations present. I won't buy another like this despite liking the compact design. Problems: A bit small for big hands.

I bought this camera as a gift for an 11 years old girl. I tried it and have been very disappointed. The image quality is horrible .. it's true this camera was meant to be the first digital camera for a kid . I didn't want to buy something difficult to use. and didn't expect to see great pictures but ... I never thought that a Nikon could be so .. poor Problems: difficulty in focusing

The worst camera I have ever used. It looks cute and sleek, but takes hideous photos. My Canon Powershot A540 was no longer working, so I decided to buy another compact camera to replace it. There are times when you can't lug a DSLR around, so I basically just wanted it for those times. I would have prefered to buy a camera that had what my Powershot had, like aperture priority, shutter speed priority, etc... but I had to buy something cheap. I saw the Nikon Coolpix S220 with a pricetag of ...

Received this camera as a gift. This camera is clearly designed for the very casual family snappers. It is fairly well made, and very easy to use. It is also very slim and light and should appeal to young people and children. However the images captured are generally soft in the center and very soft towards the corner. There are also fairly high amount of aberrations which are obvious even when viewed at normal viewing size. The camera uses significant amount of noise reduction even at ...

The worst pictures I have ever taken. I bought this to replace a stolen Canon SD750. I knew it was a little less of a camera, but the guy in the camera shop highly recommended it. The outside pictures were pretty fair, but the indoor ones were AWFUL... pixalated, odd coloring, and over exposed - which caused a lot of motion blur - even in a still subject. When I called customer service she gave me a zillion suggestions about changing the exposure & settings (which I had already tried). ...

Although the can is neat and small and seems well made, the images though are completely unacceptable in almost every aspect. Soft, grainy, poor colour. Macro does not seem to work. I'll be taking the camera back to get another camera. I hope they will take it back.
