I bought my Nikon Coolpix in South Dakota, when I went home for my 30th class reunion, and forgot my old digital camera at home. The camera came with the charger for the battery and everything I needed to start taking pictures right away. I found the Coolpix simple to understand, and the quality of the Nikon name came shining through. I was able to take pictures outside on the patio then turn around and take them indoors at the bar, while classmates were toasting all those crazy memories from way back when. Even when my eyes were glazed with tears the pictures were clear and beautiful. The flash worked every time it was needed, and I loved the automatic focus, it saved many of my pictures I'm sure, since eyes are getting weak with age. The only thing that slowed me down was taking action shots, because of the delay, that I seemed to find, ended up taking pictures of some backs and hinnys when people were dancing. One other feature was the indicator light that told me the battery was running low, I was able to recharge the battery during dinner and start taking pictures again althrough the night. Now I have lot's of memories that have been easy to post on the class website. I love my new camera!
