Good points:
fantastic pictures, reason for low score on features is that I have not had a chance to try them all as yet
Bad points:
case that came with it is very small and a bit of a job to get the camara with the neck strap in

Craig, Macclesfield Keen amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good HDR video, panorama and macro features. Other novelties include a backlighting setting which does a type of HDR for which I think a tripod is requird. I bought it as it can be carried in a shirt pocket and is robust enough for every day use in all weathers and on a beach. It does not have manual control but a good range of presets for all situations.
Bad points:
A 'What Digital Camera' review marked it down for difficulty of using the controls underwater but I don't intend to do that and find the controls easy to operate. I think that Nikon should not have tried to make it 16 megapixels with such a small sensor - ten would have been better. Image quality was praised in the 'What Digital Camera' review and this was why I selected this model. No doubt it costs more to make the camera rugged and fit all the moving parts inside the camera where they are out of reach of sand and water. However this may mean less is spent on the optics. The optical quality is good for a small compact but don't expect it to compare with a top of the range model like a Canon Powershot G12 which is about twice the price. I can see why mountaineers might like to record their GPS location but it's not a feature I would use and it shortens battery life. A sliding dust shield for the lens might have been useful.
