CoolPix 900 Pics Comments
I''d like to see some flash shots with models wearing glasses. This is the achilles heel on my digital camera. The lenses turn white.I would expect the Cool Pix to do well here too.Otherwise, the Nikon images looks like..well, a Nikon. Really Nice!..

I have had the camera for a few days. It is definitely awesome. Sure, the resolution is great but ...The two features which set it apart from the rest are the incredibly precise auto focusing (945 steps) and the exposure metering which aids the focus and which gives perfect results everytime, even with a flash and even with macro photos. Also, I have found that the normal setting and even basic settings yield results which are perfect for desktop publishing. These are the same high resolution and same excellent color saturation, but have slightly higher compression ratios when storing the images. Typically they produce file sizes of 250K and 140K respectively. Hence, MANY MANY photos stored per flash card...

Did anybody try to print this page for reference?the print falls off the page so that the advertising stays on the page?NOW WHAT DO I THINK OF YOUR REVIEW?..

Hi, Ray:Sorry for the problem - We set the pages up for a "standard" (or so we''re told) 800x600 SVGA screen. Different systems apparently treat the screen-to-page translation differently. What operating system/browser combo are you using? - We may need to adjust our page sizing if this is happening on people: You''ll note that we never split our reviews, etc onto multiple web pages a common practice to make pages load faster (and incidentally run up the page-load count), but one that is a major pain if you''re trying to print the article for reference.If anyone else has encountered this problem and/or has an easy (client-side) fix for it, please let us know! Meanwhile, if you can give us specifics on the system configuration you used, it will be helpful for correcting the problem in the future!(BTW, if there''s interest, we could easily post a link to a pure-text page strictly for folks to download.)Thanks for the heads-up!..

I have the same problem re printing the reviews. I just highlight the text, save to clipboard (Ctrl + C), and drop it (Ctrl + V) into a new Word document and print it. Of course, it would be less trouble and I could have the pictures if I could just print it from your page. Also, when I want to print the sample images (which is the only way to compare them) it would be nicer if I could download them as JPEG files rather than HTML...

I have had the camera now for 2 weeks! I love the camera and resolution. What concerns me the most is the camera usage of batteries! I find the lifespan of the battery to be very short. When I first started using it they lasted at standard resolution for 21 shots w/monitor on. Now they last standard 10 shots and monitor is off. I turn the camera off when not in use. What is the problem? To put in a set of batteries each time is rather expensive.

Any suggestions or solutions are welcome...

Sylvia, the answer seeems to be rechargeable Ni-MH batteries. I''m still trying to find the best ones. I tried some from Radio Shack and they lasted 3 picture...no kidding. Must be something wrong there. I even purchased the best pulse charger they had. I will try another brand.

You will get 100-200 shots depending on you use of the LCD and downloading. Will limited LCD and no downloading, I would not be surprised to see well over 200 shots. I ran a pair dry myself just to test this. If you get any good information, please let me know. Thanks!..

I bought the camera about 1 month ago and used it extensively on a 3 week trip through europe. I was concerned about batteries, so I purchased 3 sets of NiMH rechargable batteries and the 1 hour rapid charger from Radio Shack before my trip. I generally used a 32MByte Simple smart card and found I could easily fill that card on a single charge (46 fine resolution, 98 normal resolution). I use the camera with the LCD viewer on, but generally turn it off between shots. This seams to save the batteries, but keeps customized settings between shots. I have been extremely pleased with the qaulity of pictures and ease of use of this camera...

I was a bit late buying into the CoolPix 900, but after spending last week using it in the Angeles National Forest (California) while on vacation, I have to say I'm very pleased...The colors are true not unnaturally dark like many DCs. It's focus is sharp even under the worst circumstances. The zoom features are pure pleasure. The manual feature set is rich and useful.As others here have mentioned, batteries are a concern, but my preference is to set the LCD default to Off and use the MRec mode anyway. This way the LCD is only used for the MRec menu and the Play mode when I absolutely need it. I took over 60 shots in a variety of resolutions and qualities with the LCD off and only a few flashes, all on a single set of standard alkaline AAs.

This was one of the primary points that got me interested in this model instead of others available.My previous DC was a Ricoh RDC-2e which I really liked. I decided to hold out with it until another compact unit was available with clearly superior features. I'm glad I waited for the Nikon CoolPix 900...

I too am extremely happy with the visual results of the Nikon 900. But, I have two complaints that Nikon should have adressed. NO LENSE CAP IN A CAMERA THAT COST THE BETTER PART OF $1,000 ?? It is ridiculous. And evidently I am not alone in this belief, as Nikon is packaging one with the new 900s version. Complaint #2, the software, it is vastly inferior to that of Agfa and other dc makers. Adobe photo deluxe is good, but the Nikon View 900 software is too rigid and not user friendly...

 Anyone who considers buying this camera from mail order should understand that Nikon has advised at least some of it's dealers that the dealers cannot accept a camera that is damaged when received by the buyers. The procedure is that the buy should contact Nikon and Nikon will repair the damage if appropriate.This means that if you buy a camera that is damaged you have to wait 2-4 weeks for the repairs and then you own a "new" camera that has been repaired...
