I read some professional reviews online and they had amazing things to say about it. I've had pocket Nikons before, so this seemed like a clear winner. Overall, it's fantastic for a "travel zoom" camera. It has a few down-sides, but is an overall winner.
The first amazing feature is the zoom. From 18mm (which is really wide-angle, wider than almost anything in its class) to 400mm (which is extraordinary zoom, again farther than most in its class). And that's all optical, not digital. The versatility you get on the shots is awesome.
The second great point is the LCD. It's clear, big, bright, and easy to use. The menus are standard Nikon. So if you know Nikon's way of doing things, it will be familiar. If you don't, it's not so bad.
The third great point is the size. It's small, it's fast to start up/shut down, and it's light. I throw it in my trouser pocket easily. It's like carrying a pair of iphones. Not tiny, but manageable.
For negative points, the first is probably the production quality. There are lots of people who complain that their camera just dies. Just locks up one day and never works again. I only read that after I got mine. I think it's just inconsistent quality at Nikon. The have a high rate of lemons on this one. I got lucky. My advice here is that if you run into trouble, return it right away and get another. Don't chance it. On the other hand, if you shoot for a few weeks with no difficulties, you're probably safe for the rest of the camera's life.
The battery is a bit of a mixed bag. I find it lasts a long time, and I get plenty of shots. But it's a proprietary battery. For $20 I got a spare battery and a charger (on eBay). But if you get caught out, you can't just pop into a local shop and get a couple AAs to keep going. Look out for capacities. Standard one is 1050 mAh. Some people sell cheap replacements that have only 900 mAh. If you try really hard you can find 1200 mAh batteries.
There are definitely times when I struggle to get a picture in focus. They're awesome when they're in focus, but sometimes I recompose 4 or 5 times to get it to focus. I occasionally find pictures that looked good on the LCD, but they are blurry when I download them. I now zoom in on the LCD to be sure.
Probably the most irritating thing in 2012 is to have a camera with no rotation sensor. You have to go back and manually rotate images, either in the camera itself or in your photo software. I find myself doing this while I'm idle on a trip (e.g., on a bus, waiting in line, etc.).
I did much research online for the best value for the price on point and shoot digital cameras in a certain price point. This was one that photographers recommended. I am not a photographer, but wanted it to be able to get rid of the 4 other digital cameras I owned, take good family pictures, sell items on ebay with good quality photos, etc.
I am happy with the picture quality, am learning about the features, love the size and weight of camera and believe I got a good deal on the price. I have found the battery to last long on the first charge and don't believe it needs a backup battery unless you shoot for long periods of time. The novice photographer probably won't need 2 batteries.
It is the nicest camera I've owned and my 3rd Nikon brand camera.
Being a Nikon fan, I decided on this camera after reading a LOT of reviews. I was not disappointed nor was I surprised with the resulting package. The professional reviews were spot on and did a great job of expounding the virtues and vices for this lovely point 'n shoot.
It is a fully capable pocket camera, being neither the lightest or heaviest of its type. Its layout of controls is intuitive and does not get in the way of my modestly meaty fingers. It is easy to find what mode you wish to use quickly and easily and will keep the creative shutterbug in shivers of ecstasy for weeks on end. There is selective color choice, 180 Panorama (both horizontal AND vertical), insanely close up, 1080HD movies with reasonably good audio capture and loads of other features you will get to explore.
Items you will want to consider for purchase with this camera: an external charger and 1 or 2 extra batteries--not because it eats them quickly, but because you just won't want to be without the camera while your battery is charging. You will also be best served with high capacity SD cards (BTW, make sure and get the Class 10's since they don't cost that much more and will have much faster write speeds). Some form of handle to steady your grip when you extend your zoom all the way out--even in bright daylight you'll get fuzzy shots otherwise. This can be in the form of a small tripod (which probably won't hold its weight, but is easy to pack along). Lastly, make sure and have some little pouch to carry your stuff in. It won't have to be big, but you only have so much room in those pockets. ;)
I bought this camera because I missed so many pictures by not lugging around my 5+ pounds of Nikon D90 w/paraphernalia. I still LOVE my DSLR, but this is so easy and fun!!! You really need to get you one!
This camera does everything you'd want in a point/shoot. Takes great photos and is easy to use. My first time out with it at a party, I received numerous compliments on how great all the pictures were that I sent to my friends. I've had the SLR's and this one is as close as you can get without lugging around 5lbs. of camera. Love it!!
I currently have several digital video cameras, SLRs and point and shoots similar to this, including Nikons and Canons, and this camera is by far the most versatile, simple to use, and productive of the lot with video as well as still picture functions. it also has anti-shake tech so pics and vids are clear and sharp
For tripod use, the 400 mm zoom lense gets me in close from a distance. I mostly shoot casual snaps of travel, sports, concerts, weddings, etc. before addition of this camera i formerly needed at least 2 cameras to do what i wanted, and had to carry a cam bag, lenses, etc.
With this cam i have a small belt camera bag from Beach Camera which came with the package.
