    Excellent performance! This Camera has outstanding features......... very nice pixels, superb zoom! July 25, 2012
    I love 99.9% of this camera I love this camera and all the things it can do. I love that it has video as well. The only thing I don't like is it is very hard to see the screen in bright outdoor applications. I wished it had a view finder to look through. I was at an Air Force Thunderbirds air show and it was very hard to keep the planes in the screen since they were so small on screen. Other than that, I love it! Would recommend it to others. July 28, 2011
    Coolpix, perfect for busy family picture taking This camera is outstanding and has great features. However, I wish it was more rugged and water proof. It is too fragile to take on many trips where I need to pack it with other gear (camping, diving, etc.). May 13, 2011
    Compact size & does it all I really enjoy using this small digital camera and movie recorder. I keep it in my coat pocket because it is so compact. I never know when I will come across a photo opportunity. The battery stays charged for quite a long time. April 29, 2011
    awosome purchase!!! I have never experience a problem with this little gadget! So far everything works as it suppose to and the screen is great. better than other brands thats for sure.... I am an outdoor person and this camera fits in all my pockets. You have to play around to get the best out of it. Get familiar with the options that it offers and you'll do good... March 31, 2011

    I have memory card of 4Gb.
    Am I doing something wrong? Please help.

    I've got the following answer from the manufacturer of the bundled software.
    Is this true?
    Really, is it impossible to make a panorama image from a video with this camera?

    "As consulted with our technical support, we are sorry that your program version can't support video files. Your program is bundled with Nikon device and can't support video files as the Nikon requested."

    Answer: 
    The maximum file size for a single movie is 4GB or the maximum movie length for a single movie is 29 minutes, even when there is sufficient free space on the memory card for longer recording.

    The images on the camera itself are great, but after I upload them to my computer, some of the images have discoloring, as if they had a problem uploading.
    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the camera driver, I've also tried using different ways to upload the images, but nothing has worked...

    My computer runs on Windows Vista.
