If you like to take pictures of your family and friends don't buy this camera. It will take you about 5 trys to finally capture a picture that isn't blurry! On top of that the quality isn't that great. The flash makes the picture almost white. It's just an overall bad camera. Try a better Nikon anything but the s100

I have had my S100 for two weeks and am happy with its performance with one exception - flash. I get spots in the image when using a flash. They are in different locations when shooting the same scene from the same point of view and I have cleaned the lens so it is not that. They are large out of focus white rings all over the image to the point that flash photography is useless. Unless you never need to use a flash, I cannot recommend the camera.

Hi Anon,

One of the great features of the Nikon Coolpix series of cameras is the ability to pre-focus on the subject and give an audible confirmation that the subject is in focus, metered, and the camera is ready to activate the shutter immediately when you fully depress the shutter button. Shutter-lag is really a problem in the past and not much of a concern in the latest Coolpix models. Many of the models even offer face-detection technology to ensure that your subject's smiling face is the area of focus, further increasing the number of "keeper" shots from your camera.

Have a Great Day

No, the COOLPIX S100 is not water resistant. You may want to check the new COOLPIX AW100 that is waterproof.

SD, or "Secure Digital" memory cards, have a small plastic slider switch on the left side edge of the card which is used to "write protect", or prevent the writing or erasing of files contained on the card. In the 'up' position the card is unlocked and writeable and may be erased. In the 'down' position the memory card is 'locked' and cannot be written to or erased. If the switch is locked, the camera will display a message such as "Memory card is write protected". Turn off the camera, remove the memory card, and slide the switch to the up position to unlock.
