    I had problems with the focusing mechanism of the camera from the moment I purchased it, resulting in consistently blurry photos. Those problems got worse and the optical zoom started malfunctioning. The lens started sticking when I turned the camera on and off and worsened to the point I couldn't turn the camera on. The camera was still under warranty, so I sent it in to Nikon for repair. Almost 2 months later, I got the repaired camera back. The optical zoom works, but the focusing mechanism still doesn't work correctly. No matter what settings I choose, the camera has a hard time auto-focusing and many times simply can't focus on ANYTHING. The photos that I do manage to get are a little blurry and now they consistently have orange splotches on them, so now there's something wrong with the white balance or color management. I've owned other versions of Nikon's CoolPix in the past and really like some of the features, so I'm doubly disappointed with this camera. Given the other poor reviews, it seems like I'm not the only one.

    I got this camera for Christmas and I've had it for almost 3 months now. It takes good pictures with flash, but it will sometimes take blurry pictures when you use no flash. The zoom is pretty useless because it has the same problem in taking blurry pictures, but be sure to overcome your anxiety because it can help give you a good chance to take better pictures. It's pretty hard to take pictures of things that are moving, such as pets, so you have to use your effort in trying to get a good shot of them. There's really no point in taking close up pictures because it turns out blurry or out of focus. If you're going to take pictures of something far away, you might have to change your ISO settings to a higher setting in order to make the picture easier to see and to avoid darkness. The videos turn out better than the videos I recorded from my Canon Powershot A495, but it's a little grainy, though.

    This camera was great right out of the box. I previously owned a Nikon CoolPix. After 10 years of happily using it, it became possessed and started turning itself on and off, repeatedly. I really wanted another CoolPix, since I thought that my old one was so good and had served me for so long. I shopped around and found the S3100. I jumped when I saw the price and features. It's so easy that you could use it without doing any reading to discover everything else special that it can do. I don't understand the few negative reviewers' comments. This camera can't take a bad picture. I used it for photos for a business proposal, and everyone was so impressed with the pictures even when printed with a color laser printer on plain bond paper. It's fun and easy to take great pictures. It's such a good buy for a fantastic price. It's one of the best buys I've made all year.

    I was looking for a camera to slip into my pocket for those times when carrying my SLR wasn't feasible ... like when fly-fishing and wanting to get a picture of that "great catch"! The Coolpix fit the bill. There are so many options that are just a finger-click away - close-up, scenery, night, etc. The response time if reasonable .. on the same par with other point-and-shoot cameras in the same price range. In some cases the color doesn't come out as the "original" looked .. but I'm guessing in time I will learn what buttons to push to make that a little better. I would have liked a more detailed instruction manual. I know that a CD with all the information was provided, but when we're on the road and I don't have the computer handy - it would be nice to be able to look up on paper what I need to know. All in all, I am pleased so far with the results.

    From day one, this camera has produced good pictures with ease. I purchased it in Daegu, Korea, and was able to register it online and download an English version user's guide. The simple "scene" feature, by which speed and aperture are represented by icons, make choosing settings fast and easy for a non-numbers brain like mine. Additional features such as panorama assist and pet and sports settings expand my ability to capture a good photo. Even the video is good. My partner, more experienced with cameras than I, has commented on our ability to capture photos during this trip, " This is a great camera." We've been posting on our blogs with these pictures, and they look great. The camera's size is convenient for pocket or purse. I didn't know it came in pink, which could have been extremely cool as a souvenir from this Korean trip. Good job, Nikon!

    I bought this camera because my friend had it and I reallly liked the pictures she had taken. It has performed extremely well in all situations: Shuttle launch video, riding video, bands, flowers, birds, rain, etc. I'm convinced of its construction quality because it flew out of my hand on a recent trike ride and ended up in the middle of the road. I lost the battery door and the battery but not the SD which was loaded with pictures. I bought a new battery, charged it up, downloaded my pictures, took the camera through all its settings and added a little duck tape for the battery door. It works like new but looks like junk. I will likely spring for another Coolpix in the future because I really like the size and quality of the photes. Thanks NIKON.

    I bought this camera a day before my trip since i didn't have any digital camera and to be honest i was getting a good deal on it..! it takes good quality pictures indoor and outdoor for its price...... i would say overall it's good camera to have and easy to use, Pros; good design, easy to carry, light weight battery life is good, pictures quality is good, Cons; terrible close up focus, scene mode is just whatever movie mode button is little bit tricky... with all said, it's good camera for the price and it take excellent outdoor pictures specially on sunny day in parks, beach, city, etc.. i wouldn't recommend for people who sell stuff on internet since the close up is bad and it is hard to get a good shot,

    Although I am charmed by the size and features of this camera (my favorite Is the ability to control the ISO), I am infuriated by the lack of a full printed Manual! My last Coolpix came with one. Reading the manual on a computer screen is difficult for most people over 40. Naviga- Ting from p.8 to p.108 in PDF or for that matter, any computer format, is much More difficult than flipping to the paper page. So please don't be so chintzy, Nikon! I would be willing to pay if the hard copy manual were offered as an option. Meanwhile I am having some trouble figuring out how to get to the options I want. The older Coolpix (4100) is much easier for me to use- perhaps BECAUSE I HAD THE BENEFIT OF A FULL PAPER MANUAL!

    Having just returned this Nikon to the warrantee folks, I can't evaluate their service yet. This is my 3rd Nikon. The other 2 had similar failure, but it was well over a year down the road and I really really use my camera, so I felt I had gotten my money's worth out of them. This time it was a month since purchase and I am disappointed, because I was really treating it with kid gloves, blaming myself for the other malfunctions. I get "lens error" and it won't retract or partially retracts. The other one would come out and then retract in a fraction of a second and display "lens error." Deep sighs. This particular Nikon also required a loooong time to recover between pix, even with no flash use.

    I have been using film cameras for years. I have a Nikon N90 and a Nilon N70 which I use for travel with a 35mm lense. Film, like fuji film professional, is by far superior to digital, whatever anyone says. My Nikon film cameras will produce at least 28megapixels, while this unit would have 14megapixels. Nikon cameras have always been in a league apart, I give them 5 stars. This coolpix is very lightweight, and I can use it as a pocket camera. I will use it to take picture shots I might not take with film. I will reserve film for the best shots, and take both cameras on my next trip. I recommend Nikon by far. They are great cameras...
