Still in process of learning the proper use of this product. As of now, I find the shutter speed slow and subject oft times out of picture before it is taken???? Instruction booklet could have been clearer!
I purchased this camera because the two Cannon digital cameras I have been using take AA batteries which were always running "out of juice". This Nikon camera has a different battery system which so far seems superior.
I have read many reviews on this product and the ratings were so-so. The pictures were indeed crystal clear and very nice when taken outside. However, I never got a good picture when I'm indoors. More over, every time I tried to take off flash, the pictures become VERY blurry. The flash option needs to be on at all times or expect to get nasty pictures. This kinda sucks cause most of the time the flash washes out the colors of your face and other objects. There is a period in between taking pictures that you must wait in order to take the next picture and it get's super annoying, especially when you're in a rush to "capture the moment". I have never experience this with my Cannon camera. When you are in play mode and looking at the pictures, they appear blurry at first. You must wait a couple seconds until it readjusts. That's another factor I dislike. For the price, this camera is not worth your money. I'd say put out a little more to get something better. For now I think I'll be keeping the Coolpix only because I got a really good deal on this camera, otherwise I would have shipped it back.
This is a great camera for a starter. It is very simple to use. It's very small, but with a big viewing screen. Video is not HD. Value for what I paid it is worth it, but at retail it's not. -- 3rd party charger and batteries are cheap.
NOT A BAD CAMERA .I EXPECTED MORE ABOUT ZOOM CAPABILITY. I CANT COME UP WITH GOOD PICTURES IN DARK PLACES. INSTRUCTION BOOK IS NOT EASY TO FOLLOW. IT IS NOT A BAD CAMERA FOR UNDER $150.EYE RED REDUCTION FEATURE CAN NOT BE IMPROVED MUCH.SOME TIMES PICTURES COME OUT DARK NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO.
