I used this camera in both auto and "P" mode with a variety of settings. All the pictures look great on the screen, and even on the computer, but once they are printed (I printed at Walgreens, closer to my home), they are very grainy and do not hold a candle to the prints of my Nikon Coolpix L20 that is 4 years old and has been dropped a few times. The color is way off and they are not sharp at all. I figured out to lighten up the images using i-contrast, in the menu when viewing photos, after I had already printed a batch, and again they look good on the screen but I am not sure how they will look when printed. If they are like all the rest, grainy also. There were a few photos that were good, but I would say about 5 out of 40 only. I am going to return this camera and purchase another Nikon Coolpix. I am going to spend a little bit more money to get the P510 model, because I eventually want to do more manual shots than auto. But even if I did not want to spend more money, I would still go back to Nikon Coolpix as the prints are A LOT more sharp and vivid.
