What I LOVED about it:

This Nikon exceeded my expectations for such a small device. One of the main reasons that I give it a thumbs up is because its so easy to take everywhere! It’s small size makes it perfect for putting in your purse or pocket. It’s 7 gigabytes of memory aren’t too shabby either! Since you won’t have to buy an extra memory card, it makes this Nikon even more attractive price wise. Additionally, its battery is built in as well and lasts for well over 150 pictures.(YAY for not having to buy batteries!)

These days practically everyone has a phone with  a camera, right?! I personally have lost count on how many times my phone has been dead right when I go to take a photograph. I really take a lot of pictures so its nice to store them and not take up the memory on my phone.

This camera includes a wall charger so that I don’t have to use up my USB ports while charging it.  I absolutely adore that feature. Seriously, I have about 6 USB ports and they are always being USED! It does come with a USB cord that connects to your computer so that you have that option and for downloading your photos to your computer if you choose to save them there.

Tips and Tricks:

It does shoot video as well but I observed that people can be confused as to where the start button for video is. It is the same one that you use for taking photos. You simply touch the home display(the one that looks like a little house in the bottom right corner of the back of the camera) and choose movie and press the shutter release button the same as you would if you were taking a picture. Pressing it again stops the recording.

This camera does have a touch screen picture taking mode( touch shutter function) but I find it a better choice to shut off that feature and use the shutter release button to focus and snap the picture. I was much more please taking them this way with the quality.


I took this little gem of a camera along with me on a trip to Vegas. Apparently I ate A LOT while I was there! I WAS there for a week if that makes all of this a little less shocking. These make me hungry!! The ones where it is a little dark is because I chose not to turn on the flash. I wanted to capture the “atmosphere”. Some of these are my husband’s plates. Why do i feel the need to explain away all of this deliciousness?! What you eat in Vegas does not stay there, it comes home with you on your hips! HA!!
