CoolPix is a CoolCamera!

By

from Cape Coral, FL  -  Casual Photographer

I bought this camera for my wife and she loves the ease of use and the handy size. I find the icons a bit small for my large fingers...I frequently hit more than one at a time and must use a good deal of care.

Best Point & Shoot I've Owned

By

from Yorktown, VA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this camera as a surprise Christmas gift for my wife and I'm now a hero. This camera does it all - and exceptionally well. It is small, lightweight, easy to use, takes excellent pix/video, and has very good battery life. This will be the purse/pocket camera that goes everywhere with us - highly recommended.
