Fantastic Little Camera
on 9 May 2011
This is a brilliant little camera. It is so small yet it feels and looks great. I was after a compact camera from a well known manufacturer that would enable me to take high quality pictures that I could enlarge. The 12 mega-pixel spec does this perfectly. I also wanted one with a reasonable zoom too, and the 4x zoom facility does the job perfectly, and the pictures remain sharp even when the zoom is fully activated.
I had a number of issues with camera shake on past digital cameras I have had, and this model has a vibration reduction facility which works really well.
The 6.7 inch LCD screen is major plus for such a small little camera, and really enables you to capture a lot of detail in pictures, and it is very clear and sharp.
The camera itself is very smart looking. It has a solid plastic style black back, fronted by a metal red finish which feels really nice with raised metal Nikon silver logo on the front.
A major feature which I really love about this camera is being able to charge the battery whilst inside the camera. This is actually how to charge this camera is there is no facility to charge it externally, and saves a lot of hassle having to remove the battery all the time.
I also think the face recognition technology is a definite plus too in removing things like red eye from pictures.
The software that comes with the camera is very easy to install on a PC and I found no problems using it, as their instructions are very easy to follow, once into the program it's very simple to upload pictures to the computer to edit and so on.
Other useful features include being able to retouch photographs, using the movie option on the camera to edit short clips, and the ability to print images using a printer connected directly to the camera.
This camera doesn't come with a case, however they can be found in most good shops for very little, and being a tiny camera, they will also be very cheap.
On the whole excellent camera.
Looks good, all my pictures have come out are excellent, the LCD screen is of great size, the zoom is great, the battery life so far has been excellent. The one drawback was it didn't come with an SD card. I had to buy one.
