    Would be a 5 star purchase, but battery use sucks. Have had batteries drop off the chart with mininal use and no warning. The camera is grwat otherwise, but the battery unreliability is scary.

    Have had olympus cameras in the past. my large lensed olympus crapped out so I tried this camera. Had a little learning to do about the differences but once I figured it out,camera worked great on indoor pictures. hope the outdoor ones will look the same.

    Overall, the camera is very good. The only issue I have had with it is trying to take a zoom photo of someone or something moving. Rarely do I get a clear photo. Even in SPORT mode, I still get a fuzzy shot.

    This camera takes pretty good pictures without much knowledge of the camera. I'm not so sure the video works very well. I will have to play with the camera a bit more before I understand how everything works. I think it is tough to beat for the money.

    Bought this for my father, who needed a higher spec camera which was also relatively simple to use. If that's what you're looking for, can't go wrong with this camera. Probably not for very advanced users. For the price, it seemed like a viable option.

    The camera has key features needed to make various types of pictures (scenery, portraits, nigh pictures). It has a very good zoom and it is easy to use. Overall, I am very pleased with it for the price. It is on a large side but it is light.

    I like the way it fits my hands, I dont feel like its going to slip and I will drop it. Reacts very quickly when I take a picture. So far, very happy with this purchase. I gave a 4 star review because I havent figured out all the features yet.

    Pretty good little point and shoot with nifty features unavailable on other cameras in its class like the tiltable viewing lens. Used on trip to Colorado and ease of use plus Wi-Fi built in to transfer pics was great. Recommend.

    As a photography student i was disappointed that the shutter speed is not adjustable in anyway, but has many good options and modes. Takes amazing micro photos!

    Needed a better camera than the point and shoot I had. Using this mostly for excursions on cruises. Good quality and Nikon name is just what I needed.

    I absolutely LOVE my Nikon camera! The only thing I wish was different is the battery situation, I do not like having to use AA batteries for it but other than that I love it! Takes beautiful picutires and easy to learn to use!

    I thought that this would be a great upgrade from my old camera, however, the pictures do not turn out that much better. If you are just getting into photography, this is a good camera. A little pricey for the quality.

    We wanted a step up from our little point and shoot camera - better zoom and stabilization than cheaper ones and less complicated than having all the seperate lenses of the higher end cameras. Good compromise for a teenager

    This is a great little camera for what we need. the only thing I would like improved is to have the ability to put in rechargeable batteries. I don't like carrying extra batteries for the 'just in case'.

    I bought this for my girlfriend and she loves it. It has good features for a point and shoot camera. The only thing I would hope for was a better picture when I’m full zoom.

    I returned the item shortly after purchasing. I'm not sure how I missed the description of needing batteries. This is a no for me but other than that it was a good camera.

    Good value and price point, great quality, user friendly and easy to set up out of the box. One disappointment was the camera app to transfer pics to smart phone would not work after multiple attempts.

    Love the plum color. Takes great pictures. Have to get used to the light weight when taking photos and make sure it is steady so photos don't come out blurry. Overall, good camera for a good price.

    I wanted a basic point and click camera with the ability to zoom out. This camera is easy to use and produces great pictures. Love the flexibility. Easy to pack in carryon.,
