I have a large DSLR but did not want to lug it around Disney World. I opted for this camera instead. It was perfect for a small point and shoot and I loved all the auto modes. I don't want to spend a long time messing around with settings. I have rides to ride and characters to greet. At the end of the day you are paying for a decent point and shoot camera, and that is exactly what you will get.

I bought this without doing the research I normally would as my last camera was stolen December 23 and I need a new one PRONTO for Christmas. I liked the size of it and it feels sturdy, it has a nice large screen and unlike my old camera you can zoom in and out while taking movies, although I think that is standard now. It takes good pictures if you are outside and have good lighting. I tried taking pictures of the kids outside in the snow using a number of different settings and was unable to get a picture that wasn't just shadows on a white background. I don't think I've gotten a single good picture using the flash, everything is really washed out. The camera is too slow to get a decent picture in low light without the flash, everything is just a blur. It may do OK for things that stand still, but if you're trying to get your kids, forget it. Speaking of the flash, I thought I might like the pop-up flash, but I don't. It is right where I hold the camera, and if you are trying to use the flash, hope you get a decent shot the first time, the flash is so slow to recharge that there won't be a second shot. I am really amazed at how INCREDIBLY slow the flash is and the camera WILL NOT take picture without the flash if the flash is charging. You have to go into the menu and change the setting to no flash to get another shot. I really miss the dual shot feature on my last camera. I wish this camera had it. Finally the zoom is in an awkward place. It is a ring on the top of the camera around the exposure button. It would be easier to zoom in and out especially while filming movies if it was on the back of the camera where you could manipulate it with your thumb. It is harder to hold the camera steadyl and zoom with your index finger on the top of the camera.

I chose this camera as an impulse buy. The box said all the cool stuff: 1080p video, 18x optical zoom, 18.1 megapixel sensor, etc. I thought the price was a little higher than it was worth but I bought it anyway.

This camera does not have a PASM control. Instead it tries to automate as much as possible. In other words, this is marketed as a foolproof camera. The problem is the camera is a bit slow in making up it's mind. It eventually sorts out the lighting and kind of gets the scene setting correct. Unfortunately the images tend to be overexposed. The green of vegetation is too light and the sky is blown out. Tree branches tend to be splotches in the background. On the 3" screen the image looks OK, but put them on a large screen and all the errors appear in their glory.

The camera has an HDMI interface, but I think it needs an HDMI cable that has a "D" end. And that's not supplied in the box. Sigh. The cable that is supplied uses the old white, red, yellow video and audio connectors.

The camera lacks GPS, Bluetooth, and WiFi. For some people that will be a plus because those energy draining radios aren't there to, uh, drain energy.

Documentation for the camera is not much better than "here, push some buttons and figure this out." So yeah, it's controls are simple enough to figure out. Give yourself a few hours to play with the camera and you'll figure it out.

Recharging this camera should only be done with the supplied power adapter. I would not use another charger that had a USB interface. For example, don't use an iPad charger.

I don't know if the supplied software is any good. My computer already has a good image management and editing solution so the software supplied by Nikon was redundant for my use case.

I bought this camera June of 2013. I love the resolution and am happy with a handful of the pictures it has taken....

The disappointment is the delay and the inconsistency it yields. You have to wait a few seconds before you can take another pictures and and that is quite frustrating to the people you are photographing...I agree with the person who said this is not a family camera...sadly, that was my purpose when I bought it...

Gave this as a gift to my daughter - she is doing a study abroad in London. The pictures she sends me are great.
