PROS: Great Pictures Light Weight Small Video Quality A++
CONS: Breaks Quickly Support for NIKON can be iffy.
PROS: Nice and small took good pictures and easy to use
CONS: I went on vacation and my brand new Nikon Coolpix camera took three pictures. As in, three! It then said lens error and the screen and has since not worked. I was forced to borrow a friend's camera the rest of the trip. I have been extremely disappointed because the customer service for Nikon is horrible. My camera should have been under the Nikon warranty, however, I did not have the receipt. I sent it in explaining the situation, and what do they do? They sent me a $99.50 dollar fine if I want them to fix it! The worst part is, a friend bought the same camera three months ago, and now it too has the exact same problem!! You are better off buying disposable cameras! I have written them an email and there was no response! Talk about a great company. I highly do not recommend this product to anyone.
PROS: Light weight and great for taking outdoor pictures. Video quality is excellent too. I was able to record my nieces dance recital routine with sound!
CONS: I would not recommend this is you plan on using it for concert photo's unless you are up close and under excellent lighting if not the pictures will be blurry. I have had to send my first camera in to Nikon because the camera card would not lock into place it kept springing out. It took 3 1/2 months to get it back from them and all they did was send a new camera. You would think they would have been able to get it back to me much sooner. Now the replacement camera has a lens error. I fear how long this will take to get it back. I am going to purchase another camera and just have this unreliable camera for back up of to give to my 8 year old.
PROS: This camera looks sleek and attractive. It's 8 Megapixels. It has audio playback on the video feature. Large viewing screen on the camera. Microphone works well.
CONS: Regardless of the light quality, pictures constantly turn out blurry, grainy, or washed out. It takes ten minutes to adjust the settings on the camera for a shot, and by that time you've missed it. Zoomed images quickly lose quality. Significant other spent a lot more money on this camera than his own, and his own is significantly better (Pentax Optio M40). My old camera was a Canon PowerShot that never gave me problems until it finally died. Between that camera and the significant other's camera, I just want to throw this Nikon out. I know Nikon has good, quality cameras, but this just isn't one for people who want to capture memories. Perhaps for kids. Not for me.
PROS: I like how slim and small it was.
CONS: Aside from it being a bit difficult to press the button to take a pic, the camera broke on me after only 4 days! Yeah, a lens error!!! It was a gift too and because I don't have the receipt I'm pretty much stuck with it. How nice. I see others have had this problem so I don't recommend it.
PROS: The camera is easy to use and very small.
CONS: I got it in June. In August my camera displayed a LENS ERROR message and would no longer take pictures. I sent it to Nikon in September. They fixed it for free but I did not get it back until December. In less than a month it was BROKEN AGAIN! The monitor and all pictures have blue and red lines that run vertical straight through. I have to send it back once again AT MY OWN COST! This much hassle was not worth it! I purchased this camera to document my senior year in College... I have yet to have my camera for any of it! I will never buy a Nikon again!
PROS: Rechargeable battery is a HUGE perk, saves batteries AND money, takes excellent pictures (clear and distinct), under $150, red-eye reduction capability, ability to shoot in 3m, 5m, or 8m which is ideal for saving internal memory.
CONS: I have heard that the lens may cause me some trouble but hasn't happened yet. The only way to tell if the battery needs to be charged is when it gets low enough for the indicator to go on the screen, leaving enough battery life for perhaps 10-20 more pictures.
PROS: its small and easy to carry, nice design and a lot of options at a first glance, but..
CONS: the image quality is bad in different conditions, its almost impossible to set the right image for the night and for the day, you have to change million of settings to get a close image quality that you want.. and not even to mention how nikon customer service didn't care about my exchange for other model and similar stuff.
PROS: - Great design - Ultra compact (one of the smallest camera on the market) - Well builded - Fast flash charging and shoting - Very easy to use - Low price
CONS: - Average image and video quality - No battery indicator - No viewfinder - Bad focusing - No optical zoom in movie mode - Average battery life (about 200 shots)
