Camera is for beginner only. Good camera on this price. The problem I found is that blurring happens consistently. If you zoom anything then may be blur happened and after some time only the picture will show clearly. This is the only problem I found rather then everything is good.
This is a great camera if you know exactly what you are purchasing and how to adjust the settings to suit you. Out of the box.. Camera, 4 NiMH betteries, 16GB SD card, lens cap, usb cable, carrycase, HDMIcable... Set up is pretty simple. The 4 AA-NiMH batteries with charger make it a real bargain buy (It retails at an absurd INR 7,700). Don't leave the batteries in the camera for long periods of time as they can exude and damage the terminals. The Wi-fi is a good feature but works only with the Snapbridge phone App. You cannot transfer to PC via Wi-Fi. You first have to connect to Snapbridge through Bluetooth - be patient it takes a while. Only then can you connect with the camera wi-fi through Snapbridge. Do not attempt to connect with wifi through the phone's wifi, you can't and it can interfere with the Snapbridge wifi connection. (I did that, and the camera wifi got saved on the phones wifi settings and this prevented the Snapbridge from connecting to the camera wifi. Connection could be established only after the Nikon Service center tech pointed this out and the saved wifi was deleted). The wi-fi enabled remote zooming and clicking feature is snazzy and eliminates the need for a remote control to take selfies and surreptitious photos. The 20 GB storage on Nikon Cloud Space is a bonus. The 40x Zoom works while handheld due to the image stabilisation though images are not so crisp at higher zoom and focussing can be a issue unless you set up "center focus". The additional side zoom control and snap back button for focussing while zooming are a unique feature. The Macro gives a really close shot. Ergonomics are good and make for easy one handed shooting. Low light shooting is impressive for this class of camera. But if you are doing a lot of low light photography this is not for you. Scene options are good and are also customisable. 1080p video recording with zoom while recording make this camera worth having. The 22.5 mm wide angle makes for capturing a large area. The ability to edit the pictures on the camera before uploading them is a cool feature. The tilt able monitor makes for easier high and low angle photopraphy. When I got the camera the wifi was not being detected and the photo colours were too vivid. The service technician at the local Nikon service centre set this right by resetting to the factory settings. What really impressed me though was the good quality still photographs from a moving vehicle. All in all a great travel camera and real bargain at the price. Cons: Not being able to transfer photos to pc through WiFi Low flash range and no auto pop up flash Indoor photo colours more vivid than actual
For some time I was looking for a decent camera with easy functions and feel of DSLR and this camera provides you exactly that. The camera as mentioned comes with an HDMICable, 4 Duracell batteries, 16GB Memory Card & Carry case. Surprise package was a free battery charger with 4 rechargeable batteries (2500mAh) added to the package by the seller. The camera lacks a viewfinder but that is taken care by the 3 inch screen. Start up time is blazing quick. Zoom is absolutely marvellous. Moon shots look lively.
Hi, I purchased this camera a week back, I don't know much about photography but I always missed having a standalone camera whenever I used to travel, at first I thought of getting a cheaper point and shoot but I managed to stretch my budget to get this one and I'll tell you why i've got this one over a point and shoot. 1. 40x super zoom lens, this lens is just crazy the extent of zooming will blow your mind 2. Nikon snapbridge is amazing, you can download the pics you clicked on camera on your phone through wifi or buetooth 3. Quality of pics is amazing, the color reproduction is just crazy, at full 40x zoom though the quality degrades a bit 4. It has several modes and few manual controls, it's not as feature rich as DSLR but you can control a few things 5. Tiltable LCD is very helpful, however you can't click selfies with it 6. This camera costs half the entry level DSLR 7. You get a full package (Camera+Batteries+Charger+HDMI, USB, TV out cables+ Camera Bag+ Straps) in just 14k 8. Build quality is just great 9. The 1080p video is amazing, you can also shoot the slowmo 10. No need to worry about charging as the camera uses AA batteries and nikon also supplies AA batteries that are rechargeable along with the charger 11. No need to worry about the deteriorating battery as the camera doesn't have inbuilt batteries 12. The camera is very compact for a superzoom camera and also has nice hand grip 13. Laser autofocus with OIS Conclusion: If you're new into photography and don't want a DSLR get this camera, I've also attached some pics which will help you make your decision
