Good for a beginner

By Tania

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about Nikon Graphite Black 10.0 Megapixels Compact Digital Camera:

This camera is good for a beginner. It does not really allow you to take pictures at night or in low light very well at all. At this point, after having the camera for three years, it is falling apart. The battery door is coming loose and the camera only works part of the time. I would say that in situations like buying a camera, you want to make an investment in what you are buying, or you will end up in the same situation as me. I will have to buy another camera very soon and I may not choose Nikon because I expected this to hold up much longer. My Pentax digital camera, though old as the hills (2001) it still running and works just fine.

Great Camera...Easy to Use

By HappyCamper

from Washington, DC

Comments about Nikon Graphite Black 10.0 Megapixels Compact Digital Camera:

I love this camera. It is so simple to use and takes fantastic photos. It has a lot of great, easy to use features: still, scene, action, night feature, low light, video, etc. I used this camera at a NHL hockey game and it took some awesome pictures. The players were skating by so fast and the camera picked up the action shots perfectly. I also used it to photograph some friends playing horseshoes. I was able to catch the horseshoe in mid-air after they threw it. Pretty amazing... I have also taken the camera to a few low light areas: concerts, DisneyWorld attractions, etc. Again, the pictures came out incredible. The camera took great photos with the low light feature. I didn't even have to use my flash. It does have a night feature, but, you have to manually adjust the settings. I have never had a problem with taking night pictures (or any other type of pics). It is even great at recording short videos. I love the fact that it is so small that you can even carry it in your pocket. Very convenient when you don't want to carry a camera bag. My 80 year old mother just took this camera on vacation with her. All I told her to do was point and shoot. She didn't know how to use all the features and her pictures still turned out great. One of my favorite features is that you can enlarge and crop your pictures right from your camera. And, you can do this without ruining the original photo. Worth every penny spent!

Not great!!

By xyberpix

from Basingstoke, UK

Comments about Nikon Graphite Black 10.0 Megapixels Compact Digital Camera:

This camera is fine for daytime use, but at night it battles to focus on anything at all. I really regret buying this camera, and would advise people to look at other models over this one.
