I am very happy with this point and shoot camera. Because I rarely lug around my other camera (a Digital SLR), I miss out on many photo ops. This compact, yet high-featured camera is a great option. I really like the amazing 14x optical zoom - rare for such a compact camera. Though you can use it in the automatic mode, for photographers who like to change their settings, you'll find variable ISO, light metering, and other advanced features. For those who want better photos, but don't really want to go into the super details, Nikon has a number of easy to use pre-set "scene" settings that will help you get a great shot in many different scenarios. The camera has a "burst" mode, where you can take a rapid sequence of shots. This nice little feature is good for those action shots or just to make sure nobody is blinking in your photo. The screen on the back is a really good size and very clear - making your compositions that much easier to see. It has a built-in flash, which you can operate manually or leave in automatic mode. The only thing that I didn't really like about the camera was that once the flash pops up, you cannot put it back down until you shut the camera off. It does full HD 1080P movie recording with a stereo microphone built into the camera. I love the HD recording, but plan on getting a bigger SD card to store the large files. Long story short, this is a great little feature-packed point and shoot camera. I'd easily recommend this for users from casual to advanced. Pros: high resolution, great zoom, advanced features, great screen
Cons: flash pop-up stays up
