    I bought this camera for my daughter, thinking that a compact reliable Nikon would be great for candid photos of her children. (I use a D90 myself and really like it). Shortly after she began using it, the camera lens would not open. So I sent it to Nikon for repair. They did not have the parts, so the repair and return took months. They did not bother to inform me of the delay, I only found out because I contacted them. Meanwhile I was bombarded with ads to purchase more Nikon products. The camera is back, but now the camera has a several second shutter lag which it did not have before. Guess how successful our photos are with two active children ! I think we got about 100 successful photos in total before the camera began to mis-function. A lemon of a camera and poor customer service.

    I bought this camera for the fast shutter speed and low-light functions, it easily exceeded my expectations and took nice pictures extremely fast. Unfortunately, the screen was very weak and while it was in it's case in my purse it still managed to get a small crack in the screen, which then spread until the whole screen was a mess. Sadly, I did continue to use the camera after the screen cracked and dropped it once which made a very small scratch on the body of the camera. Due to this small scratch Nikon would not repair it as it was then deemed to be physical damage. I loved this camera for the month that I had it and I am extremely disappointed at how delicate it was.

    The camera is good, and took nice pictures, but the display screen had a massive failure within weeks of buying it. I bought it prior to deployment to Afghanistan, and now I am headed to Afghanistan with no camera. I am hoping the company does well, and corrects the problem as quickly as possible, so I can write a more thorough review. The interface was much the same as prior Coolpix, with the cylindrical zoom on the top, vice the two way button on the rear. This is neither good nor bad, just a little different. Compared to earlier models, the major feature it was lacking was the intermittent timer, which could take a picture every 30 seconds until it ran out of battery, or storage. Otherwise, it took great pictures, in the daylight, and average quality (for a digital) in the evening/low light. Still a drawback on all Coolpix - no battery strength signal. It tells you when you are VERY low, but then it is too late to go charge it because you are already using it and don't have time to wait. It does charge from the computer through the umbilicus, and you can easily download pictures the same way; both benefits over some earlier models. Oh, and the video is crystal clear! It must use some sort of vibration reduction as well as the high quality, because you just can't take bad video with this. Better than regular video cameras were two or three years ago.

    Old cool-pix stolen. I found new cool-pix to be even simpler to use with many easy to use features. Pictures are more vivid and you can edit them quickly & simply. Battery seems to last better & is easier to charge. Being a senior citizen, I need a camera to be easy to carry, ready to take a picture when ever I want. take video in HD. of ? family. be easy to maintain. be robust to be carried in my pocket and have a great battery life. this fits my requirement perfectly. Lets see if it will last longer and out perform my old Cool pix - 5 years before it was stolen....

    I bought two CoolPix S5100's last year as gifts for my daughter and mother in law. They are easy to use, good battery life, excellent size and take beautiful pictures. While one is still working properly the other unit's display screen now has black lines running through it. It's coincidental that I received the email today to post a review while I was printing the receipt for returning the unit for repair. But I have to mention that the return policy & procedures are easy and don't require a phone call for an RMA.

    My wife loves the ease of using this camera. Compact, reasonably good pictures. Some things I don't like. One if you want to edit a picture, you cannot edit it with software on your computer (like MS picture editor, adobe, etc) and then put it back on the card. If you do, the camera will be unable to diplay it. The edited image is safely on the card, but the camera cannot display it. This forces you to only use the editing software with the camera ( how much can you see in a little screen--I need to see it on my computer monitor to accurately edit it) and or install more software on your computer (we all have way too much stuff on our computer and it just SLOWWWWS it down). So I figured out how to deal with this, I copy the image onto computer and edit it and leave it there, and if I need prints I get them from the computer, and I leave the unedited version on the camera and we can share those with friends. My second disappointment is that flash pictures don't turn out too well, The flash just isnt powerful enough. Lastly the LCD screen developed a spot the size of a pencil eraser in which all the pixels wre black. I sent it back, inside the one year warranty, Nikon says no go, the LCD screen was cracked due to our error. While it is possible we dropped it, I doubt it. So overall I like this better than the compact Canon my wife had before, and it does great with outdoor pictures. Actually it did better on many shots than my Canon DSLR with polarizer lens.

    I love this camera and all the things it can do. I love that it has video as well. The only thing I don't like is it is very hard to see the screen in bright outdoor applications. I wished it had a view finder to look through. I was at an Air Force Thunderbirds air show and it was very hard to keep the planes in the screen since they were so small on screen. Other than that, I love it! Would recommend it to others.

    Since it doesn't have orientation sensor, you have to rotate your pictures yourself. I am pretty surprised and quite disappointed, since I thought that this is not an expensive part of any digital camera. Picture quality isn't so great, but this could be because any digital camera of this size can produce just this quality?? Lack of orientation sensor... EHHHH... :-( Huge disappointment.

    Took indoor pictures in different settings with mostly the same result. Discolouration on the edges (especialy corners) when using the flash. Pictures appear clear on thumbnail until you zoom in a bit. Pictures aren't crisp and sharp and colours aren't true. (almost like the camera is trying to make the pictures too soft). You get what you pay for on this one I guess.

    I have never experience a problem with this little gadget! So far everything works as it suppose to and the screen is great. better than other brands thats for sure.... I am an outdoor person and this camera fits in all my pockets. You have to play around to get the best out of it. Get familiar with the options that it offers and you'll do good...
