Why Has it Scored 76?

It has terrific user reviews with an average user rating of 100%.
This digital camera is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better cameras are available. View the latest digital cameras 2018.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Wide range of optical zooms depending on lens used
EXPEED 3a: nikon\'s next-generation dual-processing engine processes data at incredible speed for unparalleled performance in any situation.\
Bright 460k-dot, 7.5 cm (3-in.) LCD monitor: with a wide-viewing angle and protective glass, this high-resolution screen lets you see every detail of your photos and movies indoors or out.\
Built-in auto pop-up flash: the easy way to get the lighting right. the built-in, compact flash unit automatically pops up to provide enough light to illuminate subjects up to 5 m away from the camera.\
Creative mode: apply filters and effects to still images before you shoot, and access PSAM shooting modes for total control. enhance the mood with soft filter, and enjoy a world that\'s always perfectly lit with night portrait mode.\
Live image control: the quick, easy way to enhance your photos before you take them. instinctively adjust settings to freeze action, tweak lighting, or blur backgrounds you can preview the results in real time on the LCD monitor before you take the shot.\
15 fps continuous shooting with autofocus: enjoy incredibly high-speed continuous shooting with autofocus and capture full-resolution images at up to 15 fps*, or fix focus on one spot and capture full-resolution images at up to 60 fps. \
Advanced hybrid AF (autofocus) system: exceptionally fast autofocus for spot-on pictures, every time even in low light. the system switches automatically between phase-detection AF and contrast-detect AF, depending on what you re shooting.\
Full speed ahead: the super-high-speed AF CMOS sensor focuses faster and more accurately than ever before to deliver the performance you need for stunning photos and movies. the 10.1-megapixel resolution and high ISO (100 to 6400) let you capture detailed images in low light.\
Wide range of minimum aperture numbers depending on lens used
\\Small enough to take with you everywhere, with a beautiful, minimal design that you won t want to leave at home, this is the ideal camera system for people who want to capture decisive moments with high-resolution images and full HD movies.\
\\The s1\'s sophisticated features are refreshingly simple to use, giving you great results with less effort and ensuring that you never miss a moment.\
\\It boasts an astonishingly fast autofocus system, built-in auto pop-up flash, and intuitive digital controls. and with second-generation features like best moment capture, live image control, and motion snapshot, you ll always be ready to shoot high-quality photos and movies.\
\\The nikon 1 s1 interchangeable lens system camera is always ready to spring into action; it\'s as convenient and easy to use as a compact camera, but much faster and significantly more powerful, with better image quality.\
When the decisive moment strikes, you need to be ready. but what if your carry-anywhere camera isn t up to the job \
Intuitive operation: the easy-to-use digital controls give you quick access to shooting modes, while the bright LCD screen displays simplified menus with larger icons for easier operation.\
