    I'm not so good at photography so I decided on a point and shoot w/ all auto settings. there are plenty of settings to get the right shot. sometimes maybe too many and I don't have time to figure out which to use. the zoom is incredible, but I'm not able to hold it steady enough for a clear shot (probably mostly me).

    I love it. I was a first time mom and needed to have a camera to document my baby !! This has been that and more but after a while something happened and the pictures on my I phone are clearer than the ones on the camera . I tried to reset settings and nothing . For the price I won’t complain

    I was going to Ireland and needed a camera in a hurry. I looked at Canon, Sony and Nikon. This Nikon had the best features and was a good price and size. It was user friendly and great on the trip. I love the way photos upload from it on WiFi - I think it’s WiFi - to my computer.

    A Camera for amateur photographers

    I would say this is about a mid-level camera it is far from the best and far from the worst. If you are a amateur photographer or just someone that wants to get a good camera for pictures in there social life this is a good camera for that. The zoom is very good, there are some great settings to work with and the camera is not to bulky.

    I bought this for a starter camera when I became interested in photography. Easy to use and gave me some amazing images!! Absolutely loved the adjustable LCD screen. It allows you to raise the camera above a crowd and adjust the screen to point downward and see everything in the image.

    Really like the overall functions of this camera. Has a great tilt screen feature, and I love the option of taking one photo with five different filters at once. The only thing this one doesn't have is a view finder window, you only have the outer screen to rely on. Which can cause some difficulty seeing the image when its bright outside.

    Didn't receive a charger n there was no mention of it in the manual. Could not connect to the software SnapBridge like everyone else. I read some of the reviews, but not all. I purchased by the ratings. I will be taking it on vacation n will see how it performs. Bu that time the 14 day return policy will have expired.

    My old camera was shot, have used Nikon for some time, gives me nicer pics than a phone cam. Not really knowledgeable about camera's, only thing I miss so far is a real view finder. Getting used to shooting from a screen takes getting used to it. More time using it will help. Thank You

    Great camera for the price, runs on AA's and will last all day on one set. Older iterations of this camera have had battery pack problems, so the switch to AA's was good in that regard but still feels like a step backward. Also keep in mind is has no optical view finder, only the screen. Regardless, great camera.

    Bought this camera to take on vacation. I wanted a point and shoot with a longer zoom to get closers up shots. This camera supported my needs. The only downside, as with all point and shoots is the slower shutter speed, but I was okay with it because I didn't want to carry my DSLR camera and extra lenses.

    Bought this little camera to do some short videos of family gatherings. Picture quality far exceeded my expectations! Very easy to use. I am Novice photographer and it was easy to setup. Only drawback is snapbridge app not available for macbook pro so have to plug in right now. Works great with i phone 6s!

    I Have a very active daughter who was a gymnast. And sports mode the pictures come out crystal clear and the zoom is unbelievable. Also it can take up to seven pictures and one second. Only downfall is you have to wait for the shatter to reset it self.

    Love this small point a shoot camera. Only wish it had panoramic setting and removal lense to get a wide angle. Otherwise it was perfect for a touring trip of Europe. Although the geek guys told me about the MS ap that creates panoramic pics for you with your existing photos. Great help guys!

    I could have easily given 5 stars for picture quality and ease of use. The only complaint is the power button being pushed while in camera bag. Draining the AA batteries. Luckily I caught it before I headed out to take pics. It needs a time out power feature to prevent this. Otherwise, I love it.

    Good camera for a non-professional. Easy to use without a lot of experience with other cameras. Shutter speed is slow, so taking pictures in rapid succession is not easy. Good pictures for an mid-priced camera.

    Good clarity, lightweight -- takes nice pictures for our purposes. I originally bought it to video a house lift project and liked that I could put this camera on a tripod to video in stages. For a person who doesn't take a lot of pictures, this camera is very user friendly and produces nice memories!

    I came looking for a point and shoot, but I did not want chargeable batteries. This was the only one that used regular batteries. However, after talking to the store clerk, he explained this was basically a point and shoot also. It has some great advantages and so far I am very happy with it

    I was pleased with the picture quality. What took this camera down was they promised snap bridge to work for Apple. There was NO firmware til 3 months after I bought this!! Also the battery life if great while you are using the camera. Take the batteries out when done, they die while sitting.
