This Nikon digital camera has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
4608 x 3456 pixels image resolution
Average optical zoom
16.1 effective megapixels of pure imaging power \\the highly reliable image processing technology of nikon can keep your precious memories alive forever. for example, A CCD image sensor delivering 16.1 effective megapixels yields high-resolution images that reproduce even fine details, and nikon\'s EXPEED c2 image-processing engine renders these pictures quickly and faithfully.\
\<br> easy auto mode \\you can effortlessly shoot beautiful pictures in any situation. easy auto mode lets you simply turn on the camera and start shooting, while the camera automatically selects the appropriate scene mode.\
\<br> 5x zoom with wide-angle capability \\the NIKKOR lens with 5x optical zoom covers a focal range from wide-angle 26 mm to telephoto 130 mm. this makes it easy to capture group pictures and landscapes at the wide-angle position, or capture expressive close-ups from a distance with the telephoto position.\
\<br> one-touch 720p HD movie recording \\anytime you wish to shoot a movie clip instead of a still picture, just push the movie record button.\
Only 1280 x 720 pixels video resolution
Very low maximum ISO sensitivity
