17 Reasons For

Owner Reviews Are Excellent

People who bought this camera rated this digital camera 90% on average.

Nikon Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

Compact camera digital cameras manufactured by Nikon have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all digital cameras (not just compact camera digital cameras) and found that Nikon also has good ratings across its entire range.

Good Product Quality

Some customers wrote in their reviews that this digital camera was good quality. Steve said on Amazon “A good quality made camera” in his review of this digital camera and scored this digital camera 4 stars. Steve also said “Laggy with controls-image quality is fairly good”.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that are a comparable age to it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

It may also be worth considering one of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Nikon Coolpix L27, or the Sony DSC-W800 ($88.00) which is cheaper; or the Olympus VR-340 which has better reviews.

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been around for a similar time to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory and we think the VR-340, and the VR-340 both from Olympus which has better reviews; or the Coolpix L27, and the Coolpix L27 both from Nikon which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If you want a camera with a better memory card type then you might also want to consider the Sony DSC-W800 ($88.00) (MicroSD (TransFlash and cheaper)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2 and cheaper)|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC and cheaper).
