Karen, Mildenhall, Suffolk

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Got this camera for a great price from Cdiscount - up to £100 cheaper than in some shops! Those this claims to be 'ruby red' colour, it certainly isn't red - more of a fushia pink - still a really nice colour though. Still getting used to this camera - used to using a Nikon SLR but wanted a small compact camera which would be much easier and portable to take places when I wanted to. Work with professional photographers and we use Nikons at work, so definitely wanted a Nikon.
Bad points:
Still learning my way round this camera - the first lot of photos are still not sharp yet, but it's hard for me to take photos looking at a screen. I take photos for my job and have used an SLR for many years, so it is very hard to try and get used to looking a screen away from you, rather than holding the camera up to my eye. But I know that will come. Otherwise, not really any bad points. Really like this camera

Manufacturer's Description

Beautifully designed 12 megapixel camera with sophisticated ergonomics for secure grip and superior performance. With versatile NIKKOR 7x zoom lens, 2.7-inch LCD monitor, Scene Auto Selector, high ISO, and advanced portrait and anti-blur technologies.

  • NIKKOR 7x zoom lens offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution. (35mm 135 film-format equivalent: 37 – 260mm.)
  • 4x anti-blur automatically counters blurred images in four different ways. Sensor-shift VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of camera shake. High ISO (up to 6400*) light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images with fast-moving subjects or in low-light. Motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots.
  • Scene Auto Selector selects the optimum Scene mode for popular photographic situations.
  • Smart portrait system: advanced automatic features for perfect portraits. Smile Mode takes the shot when your chosen subject smiles. Blink Warning alerts you when someone had their eyes closed. Blink Proof takes two pictures and saves the one where your subject’s eyes are open.
  • Large 2.7-inch LCD monitor with wide viewing angle and anti-reflection coating to enhance visibility in bright sunlight.
  • Quick Retouch lets you enhance images taken under difficult conditions so they appear sharp and vibrant. The original image stays intact and the camera quickly creates a duplicate image with the best balance of contrast and saturation.
  • 12.0 megapixel resolution lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, crop creatively and produce stunningly sharp poster-size enlargements.
  • Advanced Face Priority AF with in-camera Red-eye Fix lets you quickly detect and focus accurately on up to 12 faces in the frame, and corrects false eye color due to flash the instant you take the shot.
  • 15 scene modes offer optimized settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations.
  • Sport continuous shooting mode: shoot up to 30* continuous shots at 13 fps (H), 6 fps (M), or 4 fps (L).
  • D-lighting creates pleasing results by correcting strong shadows to rescue underexposed images, or shots taken with excessive backlight.
  • Movie recording with sound.
