A Gift of Anguish
Received this camera 1 year 3 months ago as a gift. Used it outside of the house 3x's after researching how to use it because the provided instructions are minimal at best. ("how to use features" may have been written in another language that completes 75% of these instructions) Now all the camera does is "Lens Fail" when turned on. Nikon wants $79 + S&H to fix it? I'm now a proud owner of a $170 "door stop"! Thanks Nikon
.....Now Nikon is asking me MORE information about myself to complete this review, THAN the instructions that came with this product!

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!
