Focus

Focus:
"Great overall easy to use camera, but it seems to have a focusing problem."
_
"it is completely and utterly unable to auto focus on objects that move even slightly, even pictures of a group of children standing stationary!"
_
"If you have plenty of time to let the auto-focus find faces and focus then it's fine but not great for quick shots."
_
"also, in distances under 20 ft the auto focus didnt work very well."
_
"My only complaint is that it's kind of slow at focusing, the camera works very hard."
_
"I'd be more positive about this if the reason for the delay was better focus but...* The focus in general seems tricky, and no more reliable than my old Elph."
_
"Great overall easy to use camera, but it seems to have a focusing problem."
_
"Also, the features of the Nikon are also fairly easy to use (however, the manufacturers are now focusing on adding too many features 98% of point and shoot owners will never use, rather than keeping focus on improved image quality).The one thing I can't get past with this Nikon is the location of the Video Record button."
_
"This camera satisfies all of the criteria that might be applied to a small, versatile and relatively inexpensive point and shoot camera.> excellent exposure under most conditions, color balance very good> works well in low light without flash> fast focus, reasonably quick recycle time> excellent menu, limited of course by lack of manual controls> excellent battery life> nice wide angle lens with good zoom range, useful for both party and travel scenarios."

Image

Image:
"The time between shots is also very very slow.......it take ages to 'store' the previous image which means that you can't shoot again for several seconds unless you use the multiple shot mode which we could not get to work either! "
_
"Image quality is horrible, what can we expect form this level of product ?"
_
"Sent new images in for evaluation and was told there was definitely something wrong and I would need to send the camera in again for further hands-on evalution."
_
"Disappointing--pictures are not sharp, and the delay before and between pictures makes capturing that special shot an exercise in frustration."
_
"Slow slow, long pause between taking pic, and flash."
_
"We never could get good indoor images from it."
_
"Excellent camera wide angle lens collects a lot of light even in poor conditions great pics."
_
"- Photo Quality: Great for a compact camera; I couldn't ask for much more at this price point."
_
"I'm not even an intermediate photographer, so I can't speak to image quality (they look pretty good to me, for the most part), but just TAKING the picture is a problem."
_
"Lov the pics & the video is amazing."
_
"The SLR is great for creative photo shots when I plan ahead for special events, but nothing beats a good reliable point and shoot pocket camera to have with you when lugging an SLR isn't practical and you still want to capture the moment."

Light

"Excellent camera wide angle lens collects a lot of light even in poor conditions great pics."
_
"I tried different times with different light and one of the results I liked so much that I blew it up and had it put on canvas."
_
"I used the flash the entire time and it really dimmed out the bright lights around the band for good shots."
_
"The camera looks nice, it is compact and light."
_
"I just want a great photo (in both bright and dim light), with basic features to help me get that shot (not the kitchen sink), which are accessible and easy to use, such as force flash on or off, zoom."
