I am a traditional photographer using film and digital SLR's with top quality prime lenses, but a recent shoulder injury required that I carry no weight for an extended period of time. In order to not be sidelined with my wildlife photography, I purchased the P100. It is fast on start up, quick with image capture even with moving birds, and amazing noise control at higher 1SO settings. The image quality exceeds my expectations, including image quality at maximum zoom. My only complaints are the lack of RAW or TIFF, the limited ability to capture a long string of rapid shoot images and the purple fringing. While I am pointing out these shortcomings, I have to remind myself and the reader that this is a [$] point and shoot, not a $5000 SLR with a prime lens.

This camera freeze about 10 times since I had it for 4 months. It was a very BIG disappointment! Now I always worry if it will freeze again whenever I use the camera. It tends to act sluggish and occasionally freeze when it couldn't re-focus itself when I switch scene. I believe it may be software problem, I love Nikon, I really hope Nikon would do something about it! I still love Nikon, but not this particular,model!

having a problem with picture shake on movie mode
from Florida, USA
Comments about Nikon COOLPIX P100 Black 10.3 Megapixel Digital Camera:
Have the camera a couple of years take good photos I notice in move mode when using the zoom the picture shakes from the motor. I contacted Nikon customer service even though its out of warranty and they had me send a sample. They reply was that was normal but if i wanted it fixed it would cost me .If its normal why would it need to be fixed? I do not think nikon designed a camera to have the lens shake when using the zoom. I've been thinking about moving up to a D-SLR but after reading about the horrible customer service on the oil spotting on the D 600 I'll look at Canon. i would feel confident if nikon would fix or replace the defect.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

very clear instructions
Japanese products instructions used to be laughably unclear. Now they are written in excellent Englisg, and very easy to understand. The instructions only add to an excellent product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this camera for just under a year and I can't believe the quality of the pictures. I have taken every kind of photos imaginable from macro to moonless nightshots and have gotten consistently excellent shots. There has been the odd hiccup here and there, but so has all my other electronics, but not enough to not recommend this camera to my friends. Don't listen to the naysayers, just buy this camera. You won't regret it.

The Nikon Coolpix P100 is a great camera. I sought the zoom capabilities and ease of using the auto pre-set modes and manual modes. I have shot 7000 photos in the past year since purchase utilizing every setting imaginable. I love this camera for a point and shoot. I entered 8 photos in the local fair this year and took 3 first place and 1 third place ribbon. I am hooked on Nikon and will be purchasing a D7000 or D5100 this next spring!

This is a great, camera i would recommend this as a "first camera" for anyone who is an aspiring photographer. I am an avid photographer, though i am just starting out under aprenticeship of my mother, i say that choosing this camera to get started was one of the best decisions i have made as a photographer. The camera has great quality and great features including the 26x zoom, and the manual mode is great, which is where my camera stays set most of the time. although the manual mode is wonderful, i wish the camera had two scroll wheels, each separate for aperture and shutter speed, but all is well. Team Nikon forever!

The best camera for the Serous Amateur.
from El Paso, TX
I did a thorough survey on the web about similar cameras in the same price range. I found that the Coolpix P100 had the features that I wanted, a great zoom (26x), the sports pic function does amazing feats with moving objects; also the time interval between photos was 1st class and so was power up time. I have been playing with the camera for some weeks now, and it does amazing things. For starters, the camera comes loaded with neat features. Low light photo has always been a problem area for all cameras, some introduce more noise than others, I found that the P100 CMOS sensitivity was the best when compared to other cameras in the same price brackets, Iâ€™ve tested it and found that night time photos are stunning. The only flaw that I see is that the autofocus sensor sometimes has a hard time when you zoon in to objects that are anyway to close, but you can overcome this with the macro function, so you can take the photo anyway. I love the sports mode, my dog canâ€™t be still for a second, the sports mode takes care of that in an amazing way, the photos are just brilliant. There are cameras out there that do more, but also cost more, in the end I donâ€™t like expensive things just because they are expensive, if you are an amateur, but serious about photography then Functionality vs Price is the keyâ€¦ and the Coolpix P100 delivers great Value!

First Nikon - very pleased
I got the P100 as a Christmas present 6 months ago, and I have been very pleased with the outcome. Although not a DSLR, it's the closest thing to, and it prepares you for working with one. It has an incredible zoom, great focus, good battery, and every picture is so vivid. This camera is almost constantly by my side. Great camera, highly recommended!

P100 and P500 are the best cameras to train your hand and start to get the sense of the correct exposure and aperture
