Nikon Coolpix S1 review

I got this camera for my birthday last year because my Sony Digital camera was old and outdated. I thoguht the camera was great, but I absolutely do not like it now. My LCD screen has permanent lines and is grainy all the time (and this happened after only one month of use, which because there is no view finder, makes taking pictures a real chore. The LCD screen is big, but I wish there was a viewfinder. Image qualtiy is poor in low lighting and the picture qaulity over all is just not great. I am sad now that I didn't buy the Canon Elph because everyone I know that has a canon loves it. The Nikon SLRs are great and love them, but will never buy another Nikon point and shoot. I am off to buy the Canon SD700 IS to replace this camera.


Poor performance in low light.
LCD grainy and has lines in it and is hard to see in bright light.
