love, best camera
I got this camera as a gift, about a year ago and I love it. when I first turned it on i was already in love. it takes amazing pictures, and has very good video quality. As soon as i saw it i knew i wanted it. The price is excellent for such an amazing camera.

First Nikon - very pleased
I got the P100 as a Christmas present 6 months ago, and I have been very pleased with the outcome. Although not a DSLR, it's the closest thing to, and it prepares you for working with one. It has an incredible zoom, great focus, good battery, and every picture is so vivid. This camera is almost constantly by my side. Great camera, highly recommended!

P100 and P500 are the best cameras to train your hand and start to get the sense of the correct exposure and aperture

It works just as a DSLR does but it's cheaper.
This camera is simply amazing. It's good for amateur photographers who want to go into the idea of getting a DSLR but don't want to end up spending thousands. It's easy to use and fun to play with the features. If you are someone who likes taking challenges there are harder options to use too. Try using manual mode for example. The lens are beautiful! They can go as far as a NIKKOR 18-44 mm lens. Overall this camera is amazing and it's performance does well too.

I really love this camera,it does everything!! I was so sad when I dropped it,the zoom died,had to send it away to be serviced in Melville,NY which is very close for me..can't wait to have it back home..it really is so much better than any other camera we've owned,the video sound and picture is a great quality,it's my favorite media device because it's just so easy to use,incredible zoom!!

FANTASTIC. I have had the P100 since February 2011 and I have taken over 6000 photos with it. I already have about 20 or so being considered for publishing. This camera is so good that now I own the P500. Yep, I bought it too. As of today I now own the P500 and my daughter is using the P100. Her first day using the camera and she took 246 photos. Easy to use and the optical zoom is a winner! I ue it for wildlife photos and baseball games mostly.

I just love the camera you can't take a bad picture. It actually tells you when to picture is focused an indicated turns green. It has super fast shutter when you need it and the pictures come at pretty good. If you do get this camera it is great but you must read the manual so you can get the most out of it.

Best Decision - Still Recommending 1yr Later
This camera is hands down the most bang for your buck in the advanced point and shoot market. I knew nothing about photography when I started my quest for a camera that takes pictures better than the typical point and shoot, but is not some $1,000+ DSLR. I educated myself for a few days reading reviews from various sites and most pointed to the P100, so I got it.
BEST Features: wider angle on standard 0x zoom shots. Portrait mode snaps a pic when your subject smiles - awesome! Subject tracking - set your sights on something then reframe your photo and your subject is still in focus. Dedicated video button - switch from video to photo by changing the button you push. You don't have to flip through the different modes to get to "video mode", just press record button instead of shutter release button.
Only Negative: Doesn't tell you battery % left - it typically displays nothing regarding battery, then out of the blue shows a partially depleted battery icon. I'd like more knowledge of remaining battery. Either % left or minutes remaining, etc. Battery lasts a while though, so i have not missed anything

Portable, with great results
This has become my go-to camera. It's lighter than my ancient D70 (which I still love & won't give up), and is more advanced than a pocket camera. Fantastic pics without a tripod, nice video. I've used it for sports, landscapes, etc., and been very pleased with the results. Only one wish- I wish it was compatible with my D70's remote for tripod work.

I am a very happy owner of this camera. After trying it out for a short while I took it to a party and snapped almost 200 photos. Not only did I get great shots, everyone was asking me about the camera, where, cost, picture quality, etc. After printing the majority of the photos (which came out excellent) btw,I made the mistake of showing off the photos to some friends and (naturally) they wanted copies too, so that lead to more prints etc. Anyway, I highly recommend the camera, you'll be very pleased.

I have nothing but positive things to say about this camera. I am just beginning to explore photography as a hobby. I normally use a regular old digital camera. I bought this camera and love it.
April 9, 2011
I am completely impressed with this camera. It has most of the features of my family's advanced and beginner cameras, but it's also a great sixe to carry around! The sports pictures turn out great, and so do any others.

I love this camera
The zoom is amazing and the picture quality is awesome. For the price it is an amazing deal, the camera is comfortable to hold. I can't stop taking pictures with it!

I love photography and wanted a camera that would be able to focus on many different things, take clear photos, had a lot of zoom, and could also take videos.
With the different settings there was something for anything: sunsets, close up, the beach, etc. And ever since i first used it I love the clearness and how it works.

I would purchase another Nikon camera again.

Everything I Expected

This camera does an awful lot if you let it.
I purchased this camera when it first came out mainly because of it's substantial optical zoom glass lens... Years ago my favorite enlarger lens was an El Nikor, so, it's likely that branding helped seal my choice.
The camera is used to document those things I think are beautiful in life. And, for some time the automatic mode was in use all the time. However, I have come to use many of its features and have found that those who complain about this camera simply have yet to discover how to use it properly.
Stranded on a flight over the holidays with only the P100 Manual to read I finally read the whole thing. Now that I am a hundreds of pictures into it I love what It helps me do.

Very good for beginners, excellent quality and zoom.

Pretty darn good camera.
I bought this camera for two reasons.
1. I wanted to upgrade from a small digital camera, but I wasn't sure if I wanted a DSLR yet.
2. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a camera
In general, I've noticed this camera loves gray, blue, green, and red. Other colors such as tan don't show up as well and look rather bleached. However, if a subject of a shot is in front of a green/red/etc. color, the shot is beautiful.
There is some ridicule about it only being a 10.3 Mp camera, but it's not that big of a deal unless you plan on making huge prints. Which I don't so it's not a big deal.
Auto mode works pretty well, although i like to fool around with manual every now and then. Manual, once mastered, will of course yield better results, but auto is just quick and easy.
The HD video is great for say vlogging, or uploading quick clips for things. Don't expect amazing sound from the "stereo sound" it claims to have. It still sounds as tinny as other cameras, but a more clean tinny...Actually quite clear. But still tinny.
While zooming in on 720 or 1080p, it sometimes wobbles while adjusting, but its not a big deal. If you start recording while zoomed in, and then zoom out once the camera has actually started recording, it eliminates the wobble. Color is quite good on videos.
The fast action video is great also. It's really fun just to shake the camera around and pick up every single thing. It literally looks like a second pair of eyes when you look at it on-screen while recording. No blur whatsoever.
All in all, a really great camera for the price and size. I'm extremely satisfied with it, and I take it with me everywhere i go.

So Far, Soooooooooo Good!
I really like this camera. Great buy!! Does exactly what I wanted it too and more! I haven't even got into all the gadgits yet. Amazing for size and cost! Great Camera.

I bought this camera in a local Costco on 11/26/10. So far I'm very happy with the 26x zoom.
January 3, 2011
I have had the camera for about a month now. It
has features I didn't even realize which is great!
There is so much the camera can do it will take a while to learn, but that's the fun of it, learning! The shots I have taken so far are just what I expected from NIKON. Marco shots amazing, I have taken close ups of snowflakes details are great. The panorama shots very cool !! Would recommend to anyone!

Ease of use, durability and great pictures
I have taken this camera on extended trips both within the country and outside the country. It has proven to be durable and easy to use. The pictures are great. I do have to be sure that I have steady support when the zoom is extended.

I have had my camera for about two weeks now. Here's my review, I love it! Since this love affair began we have been everywhere! I have so many levels to master on this camera and I love that. I have had several point and shoot cameras so to have another camera wasn't a major step thing until I got my P100 for a Christmas gift. It puts my regular digital camera to shame and I thought it was a good one. Now with a more serious camera I have been transformed into a more serious photographer. I have bought books, to really grasp the concepts and so on. I love it and would recommend it to any one who enjoys taking photos.
