It worked beautifully until it started malfunctioning.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon COOLPIX L610 Compact Digital Camera - Black (16MP, 14x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
I had high hopes for this camera; for the first 11 months since I've purchased it, it has served me very well; consistently excellent picture quality, including with zoom or close-up macro, sophisticated enough without being too complicated. Fantastic for point-and-shoot snapshots. It showed no damage or defects this whole time and was of course well maintained.
But just under a year after its purchase it suddenly has begun malfunctioning. Malfunctioning in this instance means that at times the camera cannot be used at all because the onscreen menus flicker uncontrollably, the screen automatically switches itself to the review setting and the option for switching it back to photographing settings is completely unresponsive. This happens at random intervals, and then all I can do is switch the machine on or off. Just as randomly as these problems begin, so the camera also recovers it's normal functions without explanation.
So it was a beautiful device, but unreliable.
Clearly, this is not necessarily a fault of the design of the model; it might be an individual problem for this particular product of mine. But all I can advise is; buy from a seller you can contact directly in case of problems.
