Nikon Coolpix S500 review

I used this camera for Yosemite Trip. Took about 250 pictures at max resolution. Bright daylight to Cloudy to night, landscape to portrait. My results were pretty disappointed. Not that the pictures are bad, just because it was too average quality. S500 comes with max ISO of 2000 but it's useless. Terrible noise above ISO 400. There is no manual aperture settings and you wont even get to see how AUTO setting sets the aperture.

Problems:

Some of the pictures were blurly even when VR was in use. Also pictures are not sharp enough for landscape pics. DOP was not good due to AUTO aperture settings.
This camera is just for people who want true P&S camera. If you are interested in this model, also consider S200. Save $50 for useless ISO 2000.
