I hesitated writing a review until I could figure out a problem with rechargeable batteries. The disposable CR-V3 lithium battery is excellent and can easily last a few months and a few hundred pictures. Flash recharge time is acceptable (although when you have infants or toddlers who don't sit still it might not be!). But when I used high-capacity (2000 mAh) 1.2V rechargeable NiMH (nickel-metal hydride) batteries, the flash recharge time was poor and it would take many seconds to be able to take the next picture. A low-battery indicator would be displayed too soon even if the batteries had enough of a charge, suggesting that the lower voltage (2.4 V for NiMH versus 3.0 V for the disposable) made it difficult for the camera to sense the true strength of the charge that was left. Even worse, the short shelf life of even fully charged NiMH batteries rendered them almost empty, at least as the 2100 saw them, after two or three weeks of no use so we would have to keep swapping in fully charged batteries. The 2100 did get a firmware upgrade that mentions addressing problems with NiMH batteries, but our camera was shipped with the latest. So after numerous attempts at using various brands of rechargeable NiMH batteries, which is the kind that is popular for digital cameras, I was discouraged.
Then I found the "RCR-V3" battery on the web, a replacement for the CR-V3 disposable. Thomas Distributing sells a couple brands that will cost upwards to $40 including the charger and shipping. But now I can say it was worth it. With the RCR-V3, the low-battery indicator does not show up prematurely, the flash recharge time is as short as the disposable CR-V3, and the shelf life of the rechargeable is excellent for more than a month. We have the NEXcell brand, but I think any of the brands would work well. Now I highly recommend this camera, as long as it is using lithium based batteries.
After reading a lot, I decided on this camera. My only reservation was whether or not to spend the extra money for a 3.2 megapixel. It seemed for the money, this was a better choice than a low end 3.2 camera.
I have been very pleased with it. The menus are very intuitive, the delete is quick and easy to discard a shot.
There are enough settings on this to satisfy an amateur photographer. I am a gardener, and the macro did a great closeup on my roses.
Print wise, you will see no discernable difference on this camera on pics up to a 5X7 than off a traditional camera. I didn't find an 8 X 10 to be of a quality that I would want, but, then again, I didn't expect it to be. How often do you print 8 X 10's anyway? If that is what you need, you probably need to move to a 3.2 camera, but for snapshops and 5 X7's you will be thrilled with this one.
Some reviews (and the Nikon manual) say you should only use Lexar and Scandisk memory. I purchased a Viking 128 mg card Amazon had on special to go with this, and it is working perfectly fine for me.
Otherwise, the optics, the 3X optical zoom and the 2 megapixel resolution are fine for anything from Internet apps to 8" x 10" print enlarging.
It is competent, not spectacular, but it gets the job done at an agreeable price point.
