When you need even more reach, zoom up to 8x with optical zoom and 16x with Dynamic Fine Zoom, an enhanced digital zoom function that effectively doubles your reach.
*Dynamic Fine Zoom magnification is calculated from the full-wide end of optical zoom.

I've purchased about a dozen Nikon Coolpix cameras for work in the last few years. Most of them have only lasted about a year, but my employees prefer these because they are really easy to use with Microsoft Media Player.
Lot's of features. I wish they would take most of them out, like sepia tone, etc, there are great programs for photo editing and I don't think these cameras should multi-task as much as they do. I do like the different auto settings for low light, macro, etc. Amazon offered an additional 2 year protection plan which I purchased just in case. I am so glad to have pixelated free images again. :) I have not tried the recorder and probably won't, that's another thing they should keep separate. I want to take great pictures and don't want to over burden the system. Images are grainy when going to the fine zoom, but it is the same with all these cameras in various brands. Nikon if you are listening, it would be nice to see higher zooms instead of recording or photo edits.
However, it's slim, lightweight, and the lightweight aluminum casing feels nice. Additionally, the video quality is nice.
Personally, I just leave it on Auto Exposure Mode, keep a large and fast memory card installed, and use it as a convenient point-and-shoot. In that respect I can focus on just framing nice photos. Just remember, like any other point-and-shoot camera, good exposure depends on good light.
