I made a mistake buying this camera for everyday use. If you are planning to take picture anytime when it's less than full daylight, stay away from this camera. For example, concerts, night clubs, bars, at dusk/dawn. Terrible quality and during the day, quality is questionable. Pictures are choppy and i tried every possible setting. The design itself is faulty. Slow start up. And I'm not even being picky - these are some serious issues with this camera. I think I should have gone with Canon ...

Got it yesterday as a b-day present for my sister. Chose Nikon because already have Canon EOS D20 and Panasonic DMC FZ30. This is our first ultra compact experience. Design is great, slick and comfortable. I was amassed by simplicity and comfort of use. The menu is pleasant for an eye and the brain in the same time. 30 pictures i took in a day light were fine but ..... Problems: but ... when the camera locking on target it makes annoying clicks. May be i am spoiled but i didn't like it. ISO ...

Stay Far AWAY. I really wanted to like this camera, as its really tiny and has a five times zoom, but its just not very good. I felt I owed it to the interent community to give you the heads up. At first I thought maybe it would get better, but the great majority of my photos were coming out blurry. Colors look dull, and they certainly aren't sharp, dull as a butter knife. I'm on the water alot, and even if a boat is simply floating, forget about a clear shot. Its kind of a joke. Looking at ...

This is an excellent "everyday use" camera in my opinion. I also own a Nikon D200, but I like to have a small camera with me at all times (I live in NYC) and this is my most recent one. I love the tiny body and the easy and direct features. It's a simple little camera, but the image size and quality are excellent for my intended purposes. I have taken a lot of product images for the website I work on and they have been very good. I've even shot some jewelry and that worked well. Problems: I ...

this camera is quite expensive compared to the picture quality that it delivers. for a 10mp camera, the image is very bad. unless you have your flash on, then you could see more details. indoors and low lights without flash are just terrible. outdoor image is just normal. i think that every camera would give a good outdoor picture. again, for a 10mp camera, the image is usually stored as a <2mb jpeg file. this is a very small size for a good quality picture. i'm sure the printout wouldn't be ...
