I've now owned mine for sixteen months and while it's probably no longer available, I feel I need to steer others away from this camera in case there are some still knocking around. I bought this to replace an ageing Fuji compact, but this is so poor at indoor shots that the Fuji is still being preferred. I used the Nikon for my son's wedding a few days ago but sadly none of the photos are usable even for Facebook. Thank God there were other people with cameras and they'd also hired a professional for quality shots. Set to auto, all of the shots were either flashed out or my finger was partially covering the flash resulting in a badly lit photo. This has everything to do with the location of the flash... IT'S IN THE WRONG PLACE! I CANNOT EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH! Rather than being in the centre of the camera body where any sensible flash should be, on the Nikon it's bang on the outer edge... exactly where you hold your left hand to support the camera. How this ever got past testing is anyone's guess as it must have been obvious at the design stage. You have to remember to hold it carefully but that's much easier said than done when you're taking quick snaps. As for outdoor use, it takes average shots, nothing to write home about but they're okay.
When it comes to camera speed, focusing seems to take forever at times while the lens supposedly seeks the perfect shot. All too often, the subject matter will have either gone or lost patience by the time it eventually decides to shoot the picture. Spontaneous real smiles will too frequently be replaced with forced ones. And as for write speeds, even with a high speed class 10 memory card, it still takes 3 or so seconds to write to the card each time. Not good. The image review function is also the worst I've ever seen. On other cameras, you can set it so that the image stays on the screen for two seconds then disappears. On the Nikon, you either have it on or off which is disconcerting as you don't know if you actually took a shot or not. I haven't yet found a setting where you can briefly view it before deciding whether you want to take another just in case. Thus you have to keep constantly reviewing the pictures which in turn reduces the very average battery life.
Build wise, the camera is very compact, quality appears good and it looks cool with the lens zoomed fully out. That's as much as I can really say on that.
Overall, there's nothing exceptional - or even particularly good save for the 10x optical zoom - about this camera but a great deal that's mediocre. Having owned three Fuji digitals before this, I would not buy another Nikon however my budget at time of buying was limited (an insurance replacement from the now defunct Comet). The Nikon's long zoom was cheap at the price I paid - £110 - but I now wish I'd been able to pay more and get a Fuji with the same spec. Pound for pound, I think this is the worst camera I've ever owned over the years.
Build quality: 4/5
Indoor photo quality: 2/5
Outdoor photo quality: 3.5/5
To sum up, it's not a one star camera as it's relatively cheap for the spec but I'm sure you can get much better for the same price elsewhere.
