Exactly what I was looking for!
This is my first Nikon and I am thoroughly impressed. It does everything I want it to do plus more. The pictures look amazing, great in low light, panoramic works nicely, and the effects are fun to use. The navigation is smooth unlike other cameras i've used. Switching from picture to video mode is simple, just press the record button, unlike other camera's that make you search through a menu. The camera is durable too.

Needing a camera, this was the practical one to own. A beautiful product with additional features and quality zoom for a camera lover and picture fancy person. Being mindful of all the things the camera can do yet a slow in snapping a picture. Finding a glitch in the shutter release button, hence loosing the picture intended in motion. However, I love the capability of the video asset to the camera.. it is a wonderful surprise as to its ability. On closer examining I realize that the shutter release button* is indented to the touch on this camera making the connection apparently delayed to the touch. This is the only fault so far and hopefully it is just this one camera which has it so. This would make a deep annoyance with this picture taker.

Takes great pictures and videos
Takes great pictures and videos but the microphone is too sensitive. You can hear the motor in the lens if you are zooming in and out when taking videos. Also the audio is a little distorted if the sound is too loud when taking videos. I wish that there was an adjustment on the camera for adjusting the sound volume, so it would not sound scratchy.

Bad as a camera can be.
I recommend anyone looking for a pocket camera, a Cool Pix is not the camera for you, especially if you enjoy taking outdoor pictures. I purchased my first Cool Pix because I need to replace my older pocket camera. That camera latest about 3 weekend and I had it returned to Nikon for repair. Since, I had purchased extra batteries and accessories for that model of camera, I purchased the same make and model again.
I received my first camera back from Nikon but had to return again for repair 2 weeks later with the same problem. Meanwhile my second camera started having the same issues as the first and I send it in for repairs. I received my first camera back and loh and behold, it has been send back for repairs again. I received email notice stating that the repairs to my second camera is not covered by warranty because of "Sand" being found in the camera.
I have never had this much trouble with any other brand of camera then I have with these Nikon Cool Pix's. I spend every weekend traveling outdoors and documenting my travels.
I'm now in search of a good pocket camera other than Nikon. I'll take any recommendations. But my recommendation is not to purchase any small Nikon camera if you plan on being outdoors.
