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 Meanwhile, the camera, now superceded by the S610, is being closed out at Best Buy for less than $150.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 ...

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 ...

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.

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, ...
