Customer Reviews

It takes good pictures and is easy to use.

I was hoping by upgrading that would fix my problem, needless to say I returned the camera right away, and will never buy another Nikon product.
C. Haskell
The pictures are very grainy and/or blurry on most settings.

I needed a good camera and didn't want to spend a lot of coin. I picked this one b/c it had the lithium-ion rechargeable battery and was 10 megapixel. It's super easy to use and has great features. I have taken some close ups of things (macro) and I'm blown away by the detail quality. For [...] bucks, I don't know how you could beat this. Some of the shots i've taken already look professional and I don't even really know how to fully use it yet.

Great buy.

THE ABOVE WAS MY ORIGINAL REVIEW. BELOW IS THE UPDATE:

This camera seemed fine for me at the time, but despite VERY LIGHT USE and always having it in a protective case and proper handling, it didn't even last a year and a half. The lens wouldn't open and despite several attempts to fix it (using various methods found online as this is a common problem), nothing worked. My option was to try to get it fixed for more than the camera is worth. Now it is a $150 paper weight. Complete junk.

Bought a Canon PowerShot SX130 IS and am far happier: better pics, better video, easier to use. For lower end stuff like this, I would go with Canon. While Nikon may make great high end cameras, their consumer grade stuff seems like junk.

I have had this camera a little over a year and have not been impressed with the picture quality. For the price, however, it was tolerable. Now the lens cover is stuck (the infamous "lens error"). No luck trying to fix it myself and it will cost more for someone to fix it than it is worth. These cameras tend to have this lens problem. Buyer beware.

I don't have much to say because I didn't have high expectations. I was looking for a coolpix to replace the one I previously had. However, I definitely liked my older model better, despite the new one's sleek, modern look. It's less user friendly making the various settings harder to switch. Also the camera's lcd screen has poor quality. When the pictures are loaded onto your computer they look okay, but when you're taking the picture there are green spots and people are a bit washed out. It works fine for me because I only wanted to cheap point and shoot to carry around with me wherever I go, but I wouldn't recommend it.

My husband surprised me with this camera as a gift about two weeks ago, and I love it! It takes great pictures once you get used to using all the settings. Like many others have said in their reviews, this is not an out of the box camera. You need to learn about the settings in order to get great pictures. The camera is certainly capable of great pictures, just take the time (it doesn't take all that long) to get familiar with your camera's abilities and you'll love it! And the color is BEAUTIFUL! I even found a camera case on Amazon that practically matches the camera! Yes, I am a blessed and happy wifey :)

Color Name: Graphite Black
Nikon Coolpix S220 Digital Camera is a compact digital camera that makes a good camera choice for the first- time digital camera owner who is ready to get started in the world of digital photography but wants something that isn't priced too high or requires too much tech savvy. It is one of the smaller cameras available and it is offered at a price level that makes it ideal for the budget- minded consumer.

Digital cameras are offered in many sizes and with many features and the Nikon Coolpix S220 Digital Camera is easily the smallest digital camera I have ever used. There are some cameras that are even smaller, but most are inadequate for my needs, due to their often tiny LCD viewing screen. This camera offers an LCD screen that is large enough to easily see what you need to see so that picture taking is optimized. The size is sufficient enough that it doesn't hinder the taking of quality pictures.

Picture quality is the most important feature of any digital camera and the Nikon Coolpix S220 Digital Camera does, indeed, take good pictures for a simpler camera. It also includes helpful features that produce better photographs, such as its image stabilization system. I also like the color options. Standard color is the option most photographers will use, but there is also a setting called Vivid Color. This option brightens the colors and in many ways, it reminds me of the colors common to a videotaped television program. However, one needs to be careful with this feature because I have found that it sometimes distorts the colors in certain situations. For example, outdoor pictures should not be taken using the Vivid Color option because it can result in a level of color that is a little unrealistic.

I should have known better because every time I go to Staples there are about 5 of these cameras that were returned on the "bargain table". Now I know why.

As a lifelong Nikon customer and former professional photographer, I can tell you that anyone who says this is a great camera is just plain ignorant or works for Nikon.

This piece of crap cannot handle any lighting conditions, and I mean ANY lighting conditions. If it's too dark, both videos and stills are incredibly grainy, and the color reproduction is absolutely horrendous! Use the flash, and everything is washed out. If there is lots of light, it's STILL too grainy, colors are saturated to the point of looking like cartoons, and edges are broken up instead of solid lines. This is with all settings on "Auto". I tried "Manual" with the same results.

The videos have lines and streaks throughout, and constant shifting colors in sunlight. I took a video in a park and half the grass and sky are YELLOW and the entire video has vertical lines running through it! My CELLPHONE takes better videos! 90% of the videos I took at a local water park are unuseable. The distortion (because the light is too bright) and grain makes it look like a kid's toy camera took the vids.

Although they claim 10 Megapixels, I had a 1.3 Megapixel Olympus that took much, MUCH better pictures. I guarantee you will see ultra-saturated, runny colors, graininess that rivals most cellphones, and unbelievably poor edge definition.

The "features" such as "smile detection" are just stupid! If you're too dumb to know when someone is smiling then you have no business owning a camera.

I am so sorry I waited so long to test this thing! Now I can't take it back and I wouldn't have the heart to pawn it off on some other poor sucker. I can't emphasize enough what a waste of money this thing is.
