AH-MAY-ZING this camera has been nothing but the best thing in the world when it comes to everything digital camera wise! I've looked for other cameras to replace mine because of the side falling off from an accident.... but i simply still cannot find any other screen any better nor any other camera that will compare to this one. I still use it every chance i get! it has lasted since 2008, and its now 2012. i've had it 4 great years! If i could find another one EXACTLY like this one, maybe diff color, i'd so invest :) May 11, 2012
Nice Camera I have had this camera for almost four years and it is the best one I've ever owned. There aren't many fancy features on this camera, like picture frames, but its very reliable and takes good pictures. This camera is still very shiney and hasn't lost any of its glimmer. I have only dropped it on carpet and soft areas, so if you drop cameras a lot, a more sturdy one may be needed. The zoom feature is a little good, but in the wrong light settings it comes out really grainy and blurry. The screen is huge, and amazing for sharing pictures with friends, but its not touch screen. I really wish it was with all the screen that it comes with. Overall, a fantastic camera. December 9, 2010
I have had nothing but fun with this camera I have had nothing but fun with this camera. I will stay with NIKON. October 15, 2010
This is the best camera I EVER bought and I have had MANY! August 23, 2010
I love this camera. This is the best camera I ever own. I no longer have it, and want to purchase another one or one like it. August 11, 2010

Answer: 
The write protect switch is on the SD card. Little slide switch on the edge of the card, slide it to the off position.

Answer: 
When the subject is in focus, the focus area and focus indidator blink red. Change the composition and try again. When digital zoom is in effect, the focus area is not displayed and focus is acquired on the subject in the center of the monitor.

Even though the indicator lights flash red indicating it is in focus, what is shown on the screen is still blurry and out of focus and so is the picture if I take it anyway. It acts like it's focusing and then goes blurry/fuzzy again. Changing the composition has no effect. Any other suggestions? Thank you

It cannot be shut off by pushing the selector dial to the right and selecting "off". I have reset the camera several times to no effect.

Nowhere in the instruction books does it give and other way to turn the self-timer off.
