What I don't like about this camera is that it takes nearly a second for the picture to be taken. I can't shoot people while they are talking because it takes luck to capture the right moment.

Not many megapixels, but have had for years and like it very much. Will upgrade soon to Nikon Coolpix 5700

Not a bad camera for beginners, and it can take some pretty decent shots...I wish it had a better zoom, however. :)

It's not a bad camera for a beginner, however, I really miss having manual settings. This camera is great for family snapshots and/or action shots, if you aren't looking to get totally serious about your photography. The zoom isn't bad for snapshots, but to get good nature photos, you practically have to be right on top of your subject, and 9 out of 10 times, MY subjects see me coming, so they fly/slither/run away. :)

Great camera to start out with. The only downfall is that you don't have a viewfinder. All pictures have to be taken by looking at your LCD screen...

Other than the lack of more megapixels, I've been very happy with the camera. Ease of use, choice of options, etc. have been fine for me up to this point.
