Over all I like it
I have read quite a few reviews on this camera on various sites and it appears either those that dislike it either are used to actual professional cameras and the picts are not up to those standards obviously, they cant be. or they are not knowing how to use it.
They claim the picts come out horribly,but mine come out pretty good for a $120 camera in my opinions.
As you can see in my unedited picts, my pup was moving as I took the picts and they came out clear.
The features are easy to navigate, the camera is very simple to use and I have zero complaints.

Nice little camera
I was looking for a camera to slip into my pocket for those times when carrying my SLR wasn't feasible ... like when fly-fishing and wanting to get a picture of that "great catch"! The Coolpix fit the bill. There are so many options that are just a finger-click away - close-up, scenery, night, etc. The response time if reasonable .. on the same par with other point-and-shoot cameras in the same price range. In some cases the color doesn't come out as the "original" looked .. but I'm guessing in time I will learn what buttons to push to make that a little better. I would have liked a more detailed instruction manual. I know that a CD with all the information was provided, but when we're on the road and I don't have the computer handy - it would be nice to be able to look up on paper what I need to know. All in all, I am pleased so far with the results.

I love this camera. The pictures are super clear even at full zoom (both screen and playback). All the extra features for editing the photos are useful and/or fun. My only issue is the flash. When it's in auto it goes off almost every time, even if I have it in outside mode.

very clear, high definition and great zoom
picture quality and zoom are extremely good. However since the lens retracts into small size, unless safely protected while carrying, it might harm the lens and quickly develop lens error. Nikon Service is great and customer friendly

PERFECT FOR EVERY NEED
This product fits everyone's needs. This is the camera you should get if you don't need a dslr. Not only does it have HD (720p) video, it also has 14 megapixels! What tops it off is that it comes in fun colors and is very affordable.

Overall very good
Overall very good; however I am disappointed in the zoom. It doesn't seem to be doing the full 5x. The ease of operation is great and I love the size and feel. I have only used it for my grandson's baseball games, but I bought to use on a trip so I am sure I will find other good features. I have never owned a Nikon so I thought I would give it a try.

This product has a lot of great features
We've only had the product a couple of weeks; but seems to have a lot of great features and easy to use and manage the menus. The only thing so far I'm not sure that I like is the Portrait option - the "skin softening" seems a little too much for me. But, it is a great camera and compact - very easy to carry and have ready access when needed.

gostei bastante da máquina, porem achei muita configuração desnecessária. Coloco apenas em retrato, pois as outras saem embaçadas, tremidas e tal . Além do que eu nao consigo por nada usa-la no modo panorâmica!Veio um cd para q eu pudesse baixar o manual e tal, mas tenho um netbook e este nao tem entrada para cd room. Se puderem me ajudar, agradeco. Fora isso, gostei bastante da maquina!!! Fina, barata e compacta.

The camera worked great and easy to use. However, the first time I tried to charge the battery it would not charge and the camera froze up. Had to exchange it for another one, hope it will charge.

I think camera takes good picture. But don't like delay between each picture plus battery seems to have gone bad already

I love the COOLPIX family for taking up-close flower photos. Unfortunately, this one isn't up to par with macro settings. The rest of the features so far seem to be alright, but not any better or more exceptional than other cameras.

Camera was broken when I purchased it.
I purchased this camera from WalMart. It was broken when I opened it, but I put it on the shelf and didn't return it within the allotted time (2 weeks, I think). WalMart would not take it back. I have sent it to you (Nikon) to have repaired. I wanted a much simpler camera and would very much rather have my money refunded than have it fixed - again it was broken when I took it out of the box.

Not what I expected
If you want to take all pictures where the subject is 3 feet away, then this is your camera. Otherwise the results are not good at all. The picture is fuzzy and unpredictable at all other times.

Video failed to work properly
I made several little videos with this camera. I did not like the results. On the first videos, the audio dropped out about 10 seconds before the video ended. Then recently I made a video and when played back, the audio preceded the video. It was upsetting. Someone said that I needed to use a SanDisk memory card (I was using a PNY 8GB). I have bought a SanDisk card and need to see if that solved the problem.

I bought my Nikon to take on vacation this year.. I've had trouble with the lens and it has currently been returned for repairs. However, it takes good pictures and has some nice features. I really use the picture cropping a lot so I can zoom in on my grandson and get close ups. It doesn't do well in low light conditions.

Malfunction in first week
The lens would not operate after onlu 4 days. Do not know why but started working on it's own. Holding my breath that it continues to work and I do not have to be inconvienced with sending it back at my expense.

takes good close up pictures. The only aspect i don't like is that the setting dusk/dawn & night pictures are orange and blurry and terrible for me. it turns the flash off and its just ick. but he flash works good at night. i love how its lightweight and many picture settings.

not my best pictures
I had a sony until I got this Nikon, it was easier to use and I got better results. I am sure it is the operator and it will imporve. I do like the looks and the size. It is nice not to have to replace batteries.

Comprei há 2 anos e uso regularmente.
- dimensões bastante compactas, pra quem eu mostro comenta;
- gosto das cores que capta, bem mais vibrantes do que câmeras equivalentes de outras marcas
- fotos em dia claro, com sol ou em ambientes muito iluminados são magníficas
- gosto muito da duração da bateria, muito potente
- apesar de ter várias opções de tamanho de imagens não gosto da definição, acho um tanto borradas. Poderia ter contraste / definição melhores nas imagens.
- fotos a noite ou em ambientes com baixa luminosidade ficam muito ruins. Simplesmente evito fotografar sob estas condições.
- o zoom é até bom mas derrubam muito a qualidade das imagens.
Tive recentemente um problema, enquanto fotografava, os botões Ok, Menu e Lixeira pararam de funcionar, mesmo reiniciando a câmera. Um dia depois voltaram a funcionar normalmente.
Acho que o legal mesmo, para fugir de problemas é ter uma câmera semi-profissional ou profissional. É um investimento considerável, mas pode ter certeza que vale cada centavo.

I bought two of these on the same day at the same place and they both had lens problems and had to be sent away to be fixed. When you turn it on the lens pops out and retracts and a lens error comes up on the screen. One of them was never used and did this the first time it was turned on and the other one was repaired but it still occasionally gives that error. Not a good experience since I've used 35 mm cameras for 37 years and rarely had problems.

Nice pics but too fragile
Within two months of me using this camera, the lens stopped working. I don't know if there is just something wrong with my specific camera or if this happens to a lot of coolpix owners, but the camera is way too fragile.
December 28, 2012
Not the best quality
Quality isn't very good. Macro mode never works. And you have to be rock-still or else the picture is blurry.

Not a great camera!!
Overall this camera is really simple to use. I purchased this camera because it was smaller than my other camera and easy to handle. I liked that it was 14 megapixels. However, if I am not up close to the object I am taking a picture of the photo is either blurry, grainy, or dark. I have tried to change all of the settings and even reset all the settings, NOTHING seems to work. Also I find that when ever I zoom in on something I get the same results if not worse. This was my first Nikon and I am not impressed.

Great taking pics
It takes great pics but i dropped it not even 2 inches and now it has stopped working.
May 28, 2012
Constantly blured pictures without flash
Bought this camera because of the real high iso rating and cannot get a sharp picture without the flash. Very dispointed!

Not Good for shot with Movement
Anytime there is movement or if you don't use the flash, it is difficult to get good shots. Takes Lousy Sport shots

Not a great Nikon
I have many problems with this camera. For one I can't seem to get it to focus on my subject, it always wants to focus on something behind them. The main reason I bought this camera was for times when I don't really want to lug my DSLR around with me, like when we go to dinner with friends. This camera does not perform well in low light/flash situations.

Nice Camera good pictures SOMETIMES
I bought this camera back in November 2011 and i was able to upload pictures fine onto my computer with the USB cord. Now here it is December literally only a month later and I cant upload pictures. I installed that ViewNX2 or whatever onto my computer and still nothing. I registers for that myphototown stuff and nope nothing. I emailed Nikon service & support and I have yet to get a response back from them. I am disappointed with this part of the camera. If anyone knows how to go about fixing this please let me know.
