For what it is, it is great... I used it in Iraq, and it handled that harsh environment very well. The photo quality is very good, even for macro work. Overall it is an excellent point and shoot.

Great point & shoot 3.2 megapixel camera. Produces crisp, clear images, great zoom/scene modes, and very compact, lightweight!

Overall an excellent all around camera. For me the greatest points are the rotating lens and the macro capability, allowing capture of shots which would be simply impossible with a "standard" camera.

Also takes good portraits and landscape shots, and good night shots/fireworks can be obtained with a little practice.

The only downside I find is the speed (or lack of!) when switching on (around 6-7s before it's possible to take a photo), and the limited autofocus in low light conditions.

Acceptable in high light conditions, dismal in low light, the flash is almost a joke.

Small size snap shot handy camera. Easy to carry, battery lasts for quite a while, great video feature. Zoom capability is limited, and the red eye on the flash is typical of point & shoot type. The Nikon software is quite good and handy to use.
