Great for an all around point and shoot coolpix. I find it easy to use, and the size is perfect to just slip into a pocket. The zoom is great if your looking at taking pictures of things close up. i'm into nature stuff, so some closeups are great. Problems: Zoom at a distance does cause a bit of blurred vision, but it just depends on what you are taking a picture of.

A great camera, except... Purchased (new) in July 2008, this camera lasted all of one month before a focusing mechanism failure. It's been sitting on a "parts hold" at Nikon USA service for one full month. Meanwhile, the camera, now superceded by the S610, is being closed out at Best Buy for less than $150. I wonder why?? Problems: Okay...a camera can break, but Nikon's inability to fix it is completely unacceptable. I would think twice about purchasing any of the Coolpix cameras given my ...

Compact form factor, easy-to-understand and -navigate menus. Exceptionally crisp images in good lighting. In poor lighting, digital noise is what you would expect for a small CCD chip crammed with 10 Mpixels. However, ultra-high ISO values are quite reasonable for a camera of this size. Memory write time is pretty quick, even at the highest quality image mode. Metering is exceptional, even in high-contrast settings. Exposure compensation, flash, macro modes are easily accessed via a ...

Looks great, feels great but image quality is not so great. Almost everything I took in auto mode had a minimum ISO of 400 so noise was always a problem. Having no histogram or post-shot ISO indication was a pain - I never knew what ISO the camera was choosing until I looked at the exif info. The face detection system worked well though and can recognise multiple faces in one shot with ease. There was a strange pinky/blue tinge to ALL my pix. I never found out what this was and have had to ...

This in an outstanding camera. It is fast (there are faster cameras but this is more than adequate), accurate, and produces excellent images under difficult lighting situations. The lens is sharp with well controlled distortions. The metering is spot on accurate. The battery has plenty of power for a full day of shooting (you should always carry a spare just in case). Like most sub-compacts this little guy lack a viewfinder. The screen can be brightened up and I had no problems shooting ...

huge screen. fast zoom, fast startup. Takes great video. Image stabilization is subtle and effective. Face recognition doesn't work on profiles, but is a neat feature for front facing subjects and the first time i've seen this feature. It is not active by default. Overall, a pretty fast camera. gorgeous gunmetal finish. Problems: Buttons are a little small and cramped around the controller circle. Nikon-branded or Best Buy branded batteries are less potent and 3x as expensive as ...

Ok I pretty much agree with the other reviewer on this one. This is a very feature packed nice size compact digital from Nikon and I am a huge Nikon SLR fan. But they still got a lot of work ahead of them when it comes to a good all around point and shoot and every point and shoot is lacking in some area or another. This one is lacking in a lot of areas, but has some decent areas as well. A quick overview: Lets start with the good! Pros: Nice size screen great compact camera Good quality Fea ...

First I purchased the Ricoh R7, very poor picture quality.... Then I purchased this camera... Quite honestly, I am very disappointed with this as well. The images are just not crisp, perhaps I just expect too much from a compact camera. However, my mom has a clunky old Kodak easy share, and those shots are better... Go figure!!! Problems: Shutter speed is slow.. The hour glass takes too long... Don't undertand active child mode, it doesn't do anything to compensate for a moving child, ...
