When I purchase the Camera it appeared to be a value. Against newer more featured models advertised by big box stores before and after Christmas it was over priced, especially for a reconditioned product. None the less it was the item I gave my wife for Christmas and she initially appeared to like it. We unpacked the camera and the Quick Start Guide and became puzzled that the stylis was missing. We were further confused by the instructions on the controls. Soon we discovered that the Quick guide was the guide for the S230 and NOT the S220. We downloaded the correct guide from Nikon but found that the Guide was encripted so we could not print it. The camera seems to take good pictures, but it is apparent that a new model camera purchased at a retail store would have been a better choice.
The best gift I've ever given. My sister is having the time of her life snapping pictures everywere she goes .I can't believe the clarity! These pictures are really great.. My sister is a cool 73 and if she can shoot great pictures of her friends , you can too! So glad I bought this !
i bought this for my 16 year old daughter for her birthday after returning a cheaper/inferior camera to a department store. This works great for her use. It was easy to get started, is sturdy, and came with lots of extras such as the case, screen protector, and memory card. She loves the color of course, and it takes very good pics. We are very pleased with this.
This camera was priced nicely and produces nice pictures. Though I have not figured out how to get decent low light still photos, which confuses me because I can get nice low light videos. The package came with the chargers and such, but also a nice tri-pod that I find handy for taking photos of the wife and me together. It also has a set of plastic shields to protect the viewing screen from scrapes - that is good since I am rough with a camera. The battery is long lasting. It is small and fits lightly in one's pocket.
I bought this camera as a gift. As I am not the one enjoying it, this review is second hand. The person receiving the camera loves it. She likes the size, color, and characteristics. The price was right, and I am hopeful it will another successful purchase from the big O.
I LOVE this camera...it is small and so easy to use. The picture quality is great and it only took a few minutes for me to download pictures on my computer. It doesn't have "too many" settings like my last camera I never did figure out. And the price was great!
I purchased this camera package a few weeks ago, and I love it! Shipping was quick only took a few days. It came with absolutely anything and everything you could ever need with a camera. I especially like the case becasue Im prone to breaking cameras. I was a little nervous about buy refurbished but this camera looks and works just like new. Overall, a great deal at a great price, BUY THIS CAMERA!!!!
Really love this camera. It works perfectly and was so easy to use. I used it with lights on and with lights off. Even in a dark room the pictures came out great! It even came with the battery and charger which made things even easier.
I just love this camera! It was receieved in a timely manner, and it is so easy to use. Just point and shoot. The prices just could not be beat.. I have recommended this to several friends, as it was recommended to me.. I would buy a Coolpix again.
Well overall its a pretty good camera..some of the settings are a little confusing. Especially, when you take a picture with the wrong setting it the picture itself kind looks goofy. I just wish their werent that many settings to choose from. Like I said camera moments..well happen in a moment. Dont have the time to choose a setting and shoot. The auto setting makes people look orangy
When my camera arrived, I opened the box expecting a camera. when I opened the box, I got the whole nine yards! a camera, case, memory card, mini tripod, cable, batteries, screen protectors, cleaning cloth. etc. I was very happy when I got my camera!
I ordered this camera based on the reviews I read--and they were spot on. The camera arrived promptly and was just as I ordered. It's easy to use, easy to carry around on vacation (which is why I bought it), and takes pretty good pictures as well! It was a great buy and I would recommend it to anybody--even those of you out there who still mourn the passing of Kodachrome (as I do).
We are very happy with it. We purchased it for our teenage daughter and were pleasantly surprised when the package arrived and it contained all the items pictured. Since it was a refurbished item, we were unsure if it was just the camera, or the entire bundle - that would be the only negative about the listing. She is thrilled and uses it daily.
