Not so good. But image quality better than others. When you shot some pictures you have to wait until writing on the card. I missed a lot of shoots. In that case too slow. Battery life is soo good. When you are going to travel you have to carry all accessories. (Not for only charger) This is awful. Problems: Visor not exist. My LCD is not working. Without LCD it is useless. I bought this camera in Dubai. I wrote the nikon many times, They did not reply to me now the warranty is passed. The ...

a friend of mine need a small digicam, i did some research and conclude that the ideal cam for her is either nikon 2100 or 3100. i reluctant to suggest canon a60 or a70 since she is a novice in photography. when we get to the store, all technical details regarding 2100 and 3100 went to drain as she saw the cute shape of SQ. i didnt object her choice since it bares the same brand, nikon, for which i trust. however, after testing it for a week, i regret for not objecting as she chosed SQ. the ...

I have been interested in this camera for some time but because of many negative reviews I have been reluctant to purchase. To help make a decision, I took my own memory card to a local shop and took 6 indoor/flash shots inside the store and the same number of outdoor shots on a very bright sunny afternoon. The indoor shots seemed fine to me (very little noise) and the outdoor shots were excellent with none of the problems mentioned by some users. All the shots were sharp and clear with good ...

With such a bad image quality, I am surprised this bears the label NIKON. I have had many NIKON's before, and have been very satisfied. I am currently using CoolPix 990 and 995 for professional work. The SQ was meant as a complement that is easier to take along. But, these images are not useful at all. The grainy quality makes a web-cam look good in comparison. I have the latest 1.3 firmware installed, but without any improvement.

The SQ was my first digital camera purchased about 4 weeks ago. I originally wanted to get the Canon S400, as a result of reading plenty of good reviews. When I finally went to Henry's to purchase the Canon S400, I asked the salesperson if there were any other compact digital cameras to compair with, he presented the SQ and I was sold just by the looks, so after about 45 minutes of detailed talk about both cameras and features, I dicided to choose the SQ. I really liked the SQ, but I noticed ...

This is the perfect size for me. Always wanted a twist-type coolpix but the 9xx and 4500 were always too bulky for me. Now they designed this. If you are already used to the other coolpix cameras then this is similar in layout - very easy to use controls. I came from a Coolpix 880. Very solid build and finish. LCD excellent in outdoors. Noise can mostly be fixed with Neat Image, if you have the patience to put the shots through that step. Also upping the exposure decreases the noise slightly. ...

Upgrade the new firmware and see it can help the noise or not.

It's a nice camera that could suite me well. But - see below! Problems: The image quality is not good - too noicy ! the (professional) prints don't show this so much. But on my computer screen the images really look poor - thouse of my 2 Meg-Pix Casio camera look much better ! Please Nikon upgrade the camera-software !!!

Design and looks are very good. Pocketable and nice to handle... Even an AF assist Light !!!! Everything is OK but the Pictures..... Very noisy. Hope it's a problem Nikon can overcome, otherwise this nice piece of design, will be just nice to look at. Problems: Just very much noise in pictures.
