Good: I love the colour, its very sleep and stylish. Its got a 5x optical zoom, and its very easy to use.
Bad: It has got a low screen resolution, and does not focus on close objects. My one actually stopped working properly after a month due to a sensor problem.
Comment: Overall it is a good camera, i would recommend it, but there are cheaper ones that have similar features.
Good: size, pictures
Bad: memory card problems, sync
Comment: I bought one last year to use for my YouTube videos, so I wasn't too bothered about still photos, the video quality was fine however sometimes the audio was out of sync, perhaps that was more my computer's fault. I also had problems with memory cards, I would be halfway through shooting a clip and it would cut out and say "card cannot be read", this mostly occurred with 16GB cards but also with the 8GB card. It was good in my opinion for still photos but the video problems ruined it, I ended up selling it to my Dad to fund an EOS 550D. Nikon has always had a good reputation but after this I do not think I shall be buying another one any time soon.
Good: Nothing, the small size doesn't compensate for the fact the picture quality is poor
Comment: picture quality is exactly as described above in the editorial, not sharp, and very easy to get blurred pictures, fuzzy edges. Also not very intuitive functions.
This is my 3rd pocket camera, having had Casio before, very good but didn't survive a swim and bought Nikon on the brand reputation.
Bad: very poor quality
Comment: This is my first camera... but i used many camera even some previous nikon models... but this is very poor image quality.. in night mode it is very worst.... no image stabilisation when zooming... it doesnt have panorama assist... It is not worth of the spec... totally wastage of money
