At Amazon.com, we not only have a large collection of best small digital camera products, but also a comprehensive set of reviews from our customers. Below we've selected a subset of best small digital camera products and the corresponding reviews to help you do better research, and choose the product that best suits your needs.
First, a few things to know before you buy, since Nikon doesn't tell you these things until you get your owner's manual:
Regardless of the size of memory card, single videos are limited to 4 GB of space (The manual says about 35 mins at the highest quality setting; the camera itself usually says 28 minutes. I haven't come close yet to maxing that out, so I don't know which is more accurate).
The user manual indicates that the waterproof packing in the camera may deteriorate after a year, so it is recommended that you have it serviced yearly to replace the waterproofing (at your expense).
The camera strap is supposed to be removed for underwater use. So be prepared to hold on tight, or buy your own waterproof strap!
Speaking of waterproof, the camera seems to live up to its billing as such. I tested ... full review
"AmazonBasics Holster Camera Case for DSLR Cameras (Black)" - By Andriyco
After reading reviews of this camera case, I was somewhat uneasy ordering it. Mainly because of the measurements and conflicting accounts on them. Would it fit my camera??? Well, it did. I have Canon EOS 4Ti WITH battery grip and 18-135 lens. Yes, it is pretty snug fit, but I like it: the camera does not wobble around in the case. The side pockets are small, but will handle everything you need for a short trip: lens wipes, memory cards, lens filter or two and spare batteries. I use 6 AAs in my power grip and there is room for a spare set. Plastic clips for a shoulder strap are OK, could be metal, but not for that price. I took it on vacation to Mexico and had no problems. So, I was pleasantly surprised by this Amazon branded product and would recommend it. By the way, similar CaseLogic camera ... full review
IT IS EASY TO USE AND THE QUALITY OF THE PICTURES IS AMAZING. I DON'T THINK THERE IS A BETTER CAMERA IN THE PRICE RANGE OF THIS ONE. JUST SPENT 12 DAYS IN ITALY AND TOOK OVER 1000 PHOTOS THAT ARE LIKE POST CARDS.
"AWESOME, It worked Great" - By T. Melendez (Trabuco Canyon, CA)
I bought this last month for a trip to Belize and Guatamala. My first use was on a river cave tubing trip, so it only got wet off and on, but took great pictures. I was hesitant when I went snorkling at the reef off of Belize, but WOW, I was able not only to take pictures, but able to switch over to video on my camera. It's not easy with the plastic, but it can be done. You can also see the screen on your camera when you are taking pictures. We went snorkling twice and I was in the water for a few hours, great product. My camera was safe and DRY all the time, no leakage.
This camera exceeded all of my expectations. It is small, lightweight and very easy to handle with one hand. The pictures are sharp, extremely clear. It has a built in macro lens for shooting small objects/flowers/insects. Excellent camera.
"Perfect case for the CoolPix P500" - By M. Dobyns (Wichita, KS)
I am an advanced amateur photographer who has been using SLR's for 40 years. I use a Nikon D90 for serious photography, but I bought the Nikon CoolPix P500 because I wanted to have a quality camera handy that is not a chore to bring along making you sorry you brought it. I am going on vacation to the Bahamas and I wanted a day bag for the camera. This case has ample room for the P500 and the strap in the main compartment. The side pockets are ample for extra memory cards and batteries. You can also fit the Nikon rapid charger and a few pre-moistened lens wipes, but not much else. Perfect. It is compact enough that it does not get in the way and has a belt loop so you can attach it to your side or back to keep it from ... full review

"I preferred this one over the PowerShot S330" - By Dennis Guilder (Bristol, Maine United States)
I took me a while to decide between this camera and the PowerShot S330. I prefer the S330 for the way it looks and feels and for the fact that it allows to manually set the shutter speed. I also like that feature that allows you to add voice memos to pictures taken. The reason why I decided for the PowerShot S200 in the end is pocketability. Although the S200 isn't much smaller in terms of inches, it feels a lot smaller than any other digital camera I have held in my hands so far. I have had the S200 for a week now, and I just love it! I had it with me almost everywhere I went. It even fits into a shirt pocket without feeling too heavy! That was my main reason for buying a digital camera anyways, I wanted ... full review
"One thing to note - plus update re photo quality" - By Otto (Ohio)
Just got this camera, and have owned its three previous models. One thing for all to note if you are familiar with this series is that the battery must now be charged in camera with a short USB cable to a Panasonic wall charger. For me, this is a disadvantage, since I have enjoyed the flexibility of the previous arrangement -- a dedicated charger into which the battery is placed outside of the camera. I found this "old" setup to be more convenient and easier to use when traveling, and easier to pack. Maybe this is not a problem for you, but it was an unpleasant surprise for me. As others have noted, though, the old charger works with this battery (same battery as before), so you can easily purchase a stand-alone charger.
I have now taken some representative shots with the camera and have some ... full review

"Very low profile, fits in other bags. I love it." - By Sarah A. Chandler (DALLAS, TX United States)
I bought this camera case because I rarely travel without another bag, and I didn't want to carry a camera bag *as well*. I have this camera: [[ASIN:B0035FZJHQ Canon EOS Rebel T2i 18 MP CMOS APS-C Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD and EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens]]
This fits snugly around my camera with the kit lens and polarizing filter attached (my other lens is smaller). I leave the strap hanging out and zip around (this lets me carry the camera by the strap with the case on it). I have the case clipped to the camera strap. If I'm just taking a quick shot or two I'll just leave the case attached to the strap, or I'll un-clip the case and put it in my bag.
It is *very* protective, and holds a surprisingly large amount without adding any bulk. I always have it carrying: an ... full review
