Lens Problems & Poor Support
We have owned two of these cameras. They provide everything we look for in a simple point and shoot. However both cameras have developed lens problems. On the first the telescopic function often malfunctions. On the other, the lens aperture does not close completely. On the second, it failed within the warranty period. I mailed to the service center address provided with the warranty. After 3 weeks it was returned by USPS as undeliverable. I called support. She promised to e-mail the correct address. I never received it. I registered at the Nikon site and asked for the correct address. Three days later, I have not received it. I called support again and asked for the address over the phone. I have mailed the camera to the new address at my expense (twice). Let's see what happens now.

This is my second Nikon. I am going to wait to complete my review until I see how the service is.

Best little camera ever
I have taken great pictures in all kinds of conditions - sun - rain - low light, sunset - museum
I like to backpack this is light and small enough to take anywhere
I like this camera so much when I lost the 1st one in a museum, I purchased the same thing....

I got this camera just before a big vacation. Thanks to its ease of use, I was able to take great pictures starting off. It is the perfect size and the big zoom is my favorite part. Also what you see in the window is what you get, clear picture and all. I did have a little trouble with night pictures, which would not have been a problem if I had had a full manual to explain, as I didn't have time to see CD or check online before leaving and no way to do it there. A written manual would have been quicker and easier on the spot. The only other thing I noticed was the on/off button is so tiny, you must press pretty hard to make it work. Other than that, I love my new camera!

Just bought, already broken.
We just picked up this camera and it broke on the first real attempt to use it. Missed out on graduation photos thanks to the lens getting stuck. It was never dropped or damaged in any way. The camera will be returned today and replaced with a different brand.
If you insist on getting a Nikon product, go through a store with a good return policy. I've read some troubling reviews of customer service and so I won't even be going that route.
