Customers report superior product quality, that it is robust and good video capture. However they also report poor battery life.
This Nikon digital camera has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
4608 x 3456 pixels image resolution
Average optical zoom
14x optical zoom and highly efficient VR image stabilization \\the 14x zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens covers A focal range of 25 mm wide-angle to 350 mm telephoto, providing beautiful results whether zoomed in or out. added to that, lens-shift VR image stabilization helps cancel out camera shake to keep your shots rock-solid.\
\<br> 16.0 effective megapixels adding up to superior low-light performance \\the back-illuminated CMOS image sensor offers superior efficiency in capturing incoming light. this ability to capture more visual information contributes to high image quality, and the difference will be especially noticeable in images taken in dimly lit rooms and other dark environments.\
\<br> leave it to the camera to take great shots \\all you need to do is point, shoot, and count on excellent results. that\'s because target finding AF immediately locates your intended subject and optimizes the focus accordingly. what\'s more, easy auto mode is engaged automatically so the camera optimizes exposure, shutter speed and other parameters to make sure every shot looks its best in a variety of situations.\
\<br> full HD 1080p movie recording at the touch of a single button \\any time you wish to shoot a movie clip instead of a still picture, just push the movie record button. that\'s all you need to do to record the scene as a beautiful full HD movie. the prominent grip on this camera also helps stabilize the camera and provides a comfortable hold.\
\<br> other features \
Very low maximum ISO sensitivity
Very narrow field of view

    Photographyblog.com September 2013
  • In the box ========== The camera comes neatly packaged in a nice small-ish box with a number of accessories…
  • So it was a beautiful device.
  • 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.
  • That's pretty good for a budget camera…
