COOLPIX S100 2.1 5 9 9
not worth my money i got this for my birthday last year.. and at 1st i loved it. then time went on and the touch screen started acting up. when i would slide the camera open it started leaving marks on my camera.. ... i have had it for a year and 2 months now.. and i have to get a new camera bc its broken July 4, 2012
Won't capture a clear picture I bought this camera because I loved the features and the touch screen at the store but more than half of the pictures I've taken so far have been blurry and precious memories lost. I would not recommend this camera to anyone!!! January 19, 2012
used it once and the back kept finger prints and hair line scratches. The front got scratched when opening and closing. Had coolpix before and back never got a scratch and the grand kids used it often. Love the touch screen and the pictures on the S100 were very clear, however not durable and wish it had a better zoom. November 21, 2011
Please do not buy this camera. Only takes nice pictures if daylight is good otherwise it will give your useless pictures. Lots of nice moments not captured because of this camera. After having this camera ,I stopped thinking to buy again with Nikon. Please look for some high end cameras if you want to. Only advantage is SMALL and you can carry it very easily. January 14, 2013

Answer: 
If you like to take pictures of your family and friends don't buy this camera. It will take you about 5 trys to finally capture a picture that isn't blurry! On top of that the quality isn't that great. The flash makes the picture almost white. It's just an overall bad camera. Try a better Nikon anything but the s100

Answer: 
I have had my S100 for two weeks and am happy with its performance with one exception - flash. I get spots in the image when using a flash. They are in different locations when shooting the same scene from the same point of view and I have cleaned the lens so it is not that. They are large out of focus white rings all over the image to the point that flash photography is useless. Unless you never need to use a flash, I cannot recommend the camera.

Answer: 
Hi Anon,

One of the great features of the Nikon Coolpix series of cameras is the ability to pre-focus on the subject and give an audible confirmation that the subject is in focus, metered, and the camera is ready to activate the shutter immediately when you fully depress the shutter button. Shutter-lag is really a problem in the past and not much of a concern in the latest Coolpix models. Many of the models even offer face-detection technology to ensure that your subject's smiling face is the area of focus, further increasing the number of "keeper" shots from your camera.

Have a Great Day

Answer: 
No, the COOLPIX S100 is not water resistant. You may want to check the new COOLPIX AW100 that is waterproof.

Answer: 
SD, or "Secure Digital" memory cards, have a small plastic slider switch on the left side edge of the card which is used to "write protect", or prevent the writing or erasing of files contained on the card. In the 'up' position the card is unlocked and writeable and may be erased. In the 'down' position the memory card is 'locked' and cannot be written to or erased. If the switch is locked, the camera will display a message such as "Memory card is write protected". Turn off the camera, remove the memory card, and slide the switch to the up position to unlock.
