Good and handy camera for all those family snap-shots and captures from trips and travels... Obviously it is not a camera for serious artistic use, it is very limited, although if you are not planning large printouts, you can be quite surprised with a lovely clear shots sometimes. I am using it mostly when my little son is around and it's impossible to carry him AND a big SLR camera with all the photo-equipment altogether..

This has been an awesome camera for me because it has always taken great pictures with great color. The small size is also nice because it is small enough to fit inside my pockets and i can take it anywhere. I also love the different scene mods because i can just switch it to the right scene mod and it adjusts the lens accordnigly to take a very nice picture.

For just a 3.2MP camera, it takes very high-quality photos. Unfortunately, when flash is needed, it drowns out the subject and leaves it off-balance. Also, it has very slow shutter speed and memory write time.

This is the first digital camera I have ever owned. It has been wonderful for simple family gatherings and outings. It's very compact and has great quality for those purposes. I intend to upgrade shortly to a camera more suited for serious hobbyist photography, but I will always keep my little Coolpix handy as a backup just in case!

This was my first digital camera and while very basic I have taken most of my favourite photos with it. It is ideal to have in your pocket and pull it out whenever theres a shot you must have.

I like the size because I can carry it everywhere I go. But it won't do all that I want a camera to do. I can't put a different lens on it, focus with it. Or get a good zoom with it.

The camera is small and easy to take everywhere. Uses AA batteries, so I can replace them any where without needing a charger. I don't like the way it makes noise when you turn it on. Can't tell when the picture takes unless you can hear the camera.

I like it because it is easy to use and takes great pictures considering it is one of the less expensive/high tech cameras. I am new to photography so it is great to learn on before advancing to more technical cameras. When I can afford one, I would like to buy a more complex camera that can take better quality photographs.

Nikon Coolpix 3200 is my first digital camera. Good image quality and colors. Small and very easy to handle. Poor optical lense and ver poor performance in indoor photographies. Really look forward to getting a Reflex Digital Camera.

I like most things about the camera. But there is one thing that i dont care for with it and that is when using the flash it has quite a bit of lag. The other thing i dont really like too much is it is only a 3.2 megapixel camera.

Based on the review that I read in the magazine Nikon Coolpix 3200 is the best in its class (3.2 mp) due to its price, features, compatibility, usage,compact etc. As well as my experience in using it,I agree.However, this camera surely has many limitations when it comes to detailed object,night shot and distance more than 3x optical zoom.

Works well for far away and macro shots. Focus is automatic, so occasionally it doesn't focus on what I want it to. Flash is also automatic mostly, therefore making it harder to take some pictures. Close ups are good in color and quality.

Very user friendly digital camera. Software not so user friendly, I do not use the software that came with the camera. Photo quality can vary, although usually sharp it can sometimes have bad color/pixel quality in certain indoor lighting. The multiple scene settings don't seem to make a difference except the close-up shot. Movie quality has very poor lighting.

Great Camera for the overnight tourist with no photo skill and a nice little compact point-and-shoot but no features what so ever. No manual funtions and seems to enhance photos that are too dark. I use this to take snap shots in the day time when unable to use my SLRs.

Picture quality is great. Easy to understrand settings. I wish it did not take so long for the picture to take after the shutter is depressed. Also wish it gave me a review of photo without having to turn on "Review". A couple of seconds view would be good.

This camera takes great pictures. It is compact and light and therefore easy to carry around. It is sensative to movement sometimes causing blurry pictures. It is sometimes slow capturing a picture resulting in missed opprtunities.

I probably rate it too high because I love it. For the money I was willing to spend, it was absolutely amazing. But it wouldn't come close to a Rebel or D70, but it will do for me.

I love this camera. It is a big upgrade from the camera I first bought about three years ago, which was a basic 1 megapixel Kodak DC3200. The only problem I have with it is that the batteries don't last long, so invest in Sony rechargeable batteries. The Sony brand comes with 4 batteries (so you can have 2 in the camera and 2 charging) and a charger. Also, when in the movie mode the camera makes noise that is picked up in the movie. The camera is excellent at what is supposed to do, take pictures. The software that comes with it is kind of primative so I would buy a photo editor with more options.

Image quality has always been great. I have print enlargements bigger than nikon recommends that came out like a professional did them. I had the Nikon 3100 first but the on/off switch shorts out so it is aggravating. I liked the ease of use and quality so well I bought a new 3200. I have no complaints with it at all!

For a beginner deciding what to invest in. This was a very good choice all the way around. I give it an 8 on that curve. Nicely rounded on all sides with room for a little improvement. Turn it on its side, and it is the infinity symbol. The macro feature on this camera is excellent. It allows you to get in a close and auto focuses. You can move the camera to the left, right etc..depress the picture button and it will refocus for you till you are happy with it. It also features and auto~hand shake to correctly capture the image without blurring. It has long battery life especially on rechargeables. It is only 3.2 megapixles though. That can creat issues with a lot of things. But overall the pictures for me are satisfactory.

Still learning the camera, I find I miss the 10x optical zoom. Clarity of outside shots rate an 8. Movie clips are excellent. For size and convenience it's great.

When I want to take a camera with me in my pocket, the Coolpix 3200 is the one I have. I'm often amazed at how good the snapshots are.
