This camera performs.
I bought this camera because my friend had it and I reallly liked the pictures she had taken. It has performed extremely well in all situations: Shuttle launch video, riding video, bands, flowers, birds, rain, etc. I'm convinced of its construction quality because it flew out of my hand on a recent trike ride and ended up in the middle of the road. I lost the battery door and the battery but not the SD which was loaded with pictures. I bought a new battery, charged it up, downloaded my pictures, took the camera through all its settings and added a little duck tape for the battery door. It works like new but looks like junk. I will likely spring for another Coolpix in the future because I really like the size and quality of the photes. Thanks NIKON.

This is an excellent camera, what it needs is people who know photography to appreciate it ! I took these two pictures on low light with the flash on minimum, and also lower the ev to its lowest and these are the results, so don't knock anything down is you don't have the knowledge.

Great camera for the price
I have just had this camera for a few days, and it takes very good pictures and video. Everything functions as stated in the manual. It is very easy to use.

Great little back up camera to carry in my purse or pocket.
I'm a retired tractor trailer driver and I bought this camera as a take along in the truck instead of my "big one". I hate to say it, but this little camera rivals the photo quality of the other one. Well made and great quality in a small carry along package. Now that I'm retired I either carry it in my purse or pocket when I talk the dog, just in case a good photo op comes along. So glad I bought this camera.
