"Major win here."

While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Nikon . The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty. Auto works well for me once outdoors or in well lit rooms. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. Everything about it is solid and satisfying.

"The viewer works great."

Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas. This is the perfect compromise camera for me. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. I'm impressed with how Nikon incorporated it seamlessly. During my search, I discovered that the Nikon was about to be released. It's got pretty much everything I could want in a Childrens Point & Shoot Digital Camera. I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it.

Nikon Final Thoughts

"Very nice design."

However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. The zoom truly is extraordinary! I did buy some rechargeable batteries to use in it. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. Great deal on this camera package that includes lots of extras.

"I take it when I travel."

I don't really see a good excuse for that, wildlife photos may prove nearly impossible. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb. Better photos than her XR phone. The stability at long zoom was fantastic. I will update this report once I have used it more.

"You guessed it, buy this."

10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. This camera was such a great gift for my daughter’s big sister gift.

Excellent quality photos too. During my search, I discovered that the Canon 1070C001 was about to be released. The only problem I had was with the LCD screen. The image I've shared was taken from over 15 feet away with just the optical zoom. Been looking for a easy to use, simple Childrens Point & Shoot Digital Camera.

I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. In fact, the very first photo I took was indoors of my wife. The different features are amazing and the pics came out really great. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas.

"Not necessary with this."

The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington. I'm impressed with how Canon incorporated it seamlessly. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent.
