Battery:

_
"The battery cover is quite flimsy and feels like it might break."
_
"Battery life is a joke, and batteries go dead sitting in the camera even when it's turned off."
_
"Let me tell you about how I've trashed this so far..-I had my camera in my school bag (without the cover) and somehow the batterie flap broke and couldn't close properly anymore."
_
"I hesitated writing a review until I could figure out a problem with rechargeable batteries."
_
"- accurate & crisp picture quality- can use rechargeable AA batteries- great valueCONS:- picky about memory card."

Flash

Flash:
"Weak flash and redeye.7."
_
"There are some downsides: the flash seems a bit hot and the shutter is quite slow - you can't snap the shutter like you can on an SLR, causing you to miss some of those moments that happen in the blink of an eye."
_
"Also this camera seems more efficient in utilizing Compact Flash space."
_
"If you happened to shoot in conditions that trigger the flash, then you get to wait for a good eight seconds before you can shoot again."
_
"Reviews of this camera, as late as the Fall of 2004, seem to place the Coolpix 2100 above all its competitors (2 Mpxl, non-SLR).My two complaints: there is no manual focus (but you can use the focus lock, half-depressing the shutter switch, to lock in a focus range - except in macro mode), and a wimpy flash (really only good to 6-8' (2-2.5 m)."
_
"The automatic mode takes great pictures most of the time, and it's easy enough to turn the flash on off or change the exposure if I need to.3."
_
"Both outdoor and indoor shots are consistently good and the flash works nicely."

Light

Light:
"One more thing I like to point out is that even due to a lack of AF assist lamp, the camera does well in low light situations."
_
"It's very easy to use, small and light enough to take everywhere, takes very good pictures with a resolution adequate for web use, and even a kid can figure out how to use it."
_
"Its best pictures are taken with a lot of light however so just be aware of that."
_
"Very easy to use, light & small."
_
"The camera is light and fits comfortably in your hand."
