Coolpix Premium Features
Coolpix in-camera technologies give you the edge when it comes to taking beautiful pictures more easily and with greater enjoyment. Included are innovative functions that increase shooting opportunities in a broader range of situations, help to optimize images, and add a new dimension of fun to sharing those results.
VR image stabilization Nikon Coolpix cameras offer an array of VR technologies that produce blur-free images when shooting in unsteady conditions or at slower shutter speeds. Selected models are equipped with one of two types of Optical VR, Lens Shift VR, which delivers sharp and steady images effective for shooting and faster framing with the LCD, or Image Sensor Shift VR, which moves the image sensor to accurately compensate for camera shake. Other models offer Electronic VR which applies movement data to image processing to turn blurred images into beautifully clear results.
Better pictures in lower light Selected Coolpix models offer ISO capability beyond the range of conventional digital compacts. An exciting advantage that greatly increases photographic possibilities, high ISO capability delivers excellent exposure in challenging conditions, broadens the scope of possible subjects and allows scenes to be captured beautifully without compromising natural light.
Face-priority AF Available only with Nikon Coolpix cameras, the clever Face-priority AF function helps ensure satisfyingly crisp portraits no matter where the subject is in the shot. By automatically detecting people's faces in the frame, the photographer is free to press the shutter for sharp portraits with focus exactly where it's wanted.
D-Lighting Only Nikon delivers the advantage of D-Lighting, a unique technology with the ability to rescue underexposed images or shots taken with excessive backlight. Accessible in Playback mode, this innovative feature automatically creates a copy of the image, adding light and detail added where necessary, while leaving correctly-exposed areas untouched. As a result, images are significantly improved in a manner that is much more natural looking.
In-camera red-eye fix Coolpix cameras offer refined red-eye reduction capability that surpasses other digital compacts. First, a series of pre-flashes stimulate the subjects pupils, causing them to constrict. The camera then analyzes the captured image for the remaining presence of red eyes, automatically correcting them in-camera before saving the image to memory.

As for the pictures it takes? They're not perfect, but they suit my purpose. Some people may want something with more megapixels, but 8 is enough for me. It sometimes has trouble focusing on the correct subject. It doesn't seem to have much of a problem with pet eye, though! Also, the video feature is a wonderful bonus, it picks up audio surprisingly well. Make sure to buy an SD card, though!
A small worry I have is that the battery compartment door seems a little.. "loose." It's not going to pop open on its own, but it does wiggle a little bit and sand could probably get in if you took it to the beach. Buying a case for it would probably decrease that risk significantly, though.
Overall, I feel this is a great digital camera for the price and makes a good starter digital camera for someone like me who isn't usually very good with them.
The answer is I don't. If I need a quick pic of something, there is always the camera in my iPhone 3G. But I recently got a chance to set up this little Nikon for my stepson and review his work. It was very impressive. The images were clear, focused, and sharp. The camera itself is about the same size but much thinner than a pack of smokes. This makes it easy to carry around in a shirt pocket when those photo moments arise. Given the consistently excellent results, what's not to like.
Well what you get in miniaturization you give up in control. While most (and maybe all) DSLRs have electronic controls, they are loaded with manual overrides allowing the photographer to take control quickly. Going through menus whose common features are tiny icons is cumbersome. A 3X optical zoom is nice, but it offers no optical zoom for those who use them. Anti-shake technology is built in using Nikon's VR system found in its best cameras and lenses.
I installed a 4GB SD card which stores far more than the camera can hold between charges. A one GB would be more than adequate but my stepson was going to Scotland for three weeks and wouldn't be taking his laptop. I wanted him to have the capacity to take lots of pictures, and he did, but came no where close to the 4GB card's potential.
As to charging, we did have a bit of confusion about European voltage. After a bit of research on Nikon's web site I learned that voltage regulation is built into their chargers.
This is not a professional camera. But it is a good camera that has my stepson enthusiastic about photography. Since attitude is aptitude, I may be hearing about DSLs from him soon enough.
I have only gotten a few pages into the manual and can only operate a few settings. Yet virtually every shot has come out good. 8"x10" prints from a color ink jet paper printer look great unless you really look close; just faint lines from the printer. Now THAT is a good camera and it would fit in a cigarette pack if you wished.
I've used large, medium and 35mm formats and did my own developing and printing for a few decades. Grain? Very simple: film speed. 100 was ideal, 200 a touch of grain, 400 noticeable and so on. The higher the film speed, the more grain you get. Nothing is free, there is always a trade off. The more difficult you make it for a digital camera, the more problems with the photo.
The best thing I ever did was take a photography class. Minimal cost, 4 or 5 evening classes, and I understood the trade offs between film speed, aperture and lens speed. I imagine digital has similar factors; if I was 100 miles closer to a city I would already be signed up.
Don't expect miracles, but if you understand the basic principles you'll be able to handle tough conditions and get good pictures.
It's a durable little machine, surviving cross country road trips, vacations, freshman year of college, sandy beaches, poolside parties and everything in between!
It's super easy to use and takes great photos. A lot of inexpensive cameras leave you with under or over exposed photos and bad coloring + saturation in the pictures, but this one has been very good at taking high quality pics.
The macro mode isn't too sensitive, so closeups are not a very good option, but I'm talking extreme closeups. Usually the camera has pretty good focus, even without a flash.
The shutter isn't super fast, but it still allows you to take good pictures.
Over all, I would highly recommend this little camera as a perfect one for taking snaps at all your events!
