This camera is good for beginners because you can easily change settings or delete images. The menu is very intuitive. You can also access all major options within the same menu screen.
The auto features work extremely well and are easy to use. It comes with several automatic scene modes, including landscape and portrait modes. It also has some predefined ISO settings. The images are fairly noiseless, and the color is mainly accurate.
This Nikon Coolpix comes with EXPEED, which is a built-in image processor. This is a Nikon technology that helps your images look more natural.The feature does work fairly well. Your pictures do have a natural glow as long as you don't zoom too far out.
A really nice feature of this camera is the "Sports Continuous" scene mode. Continuous mode allows you to hold down your shutter release button and take a series of pictures at once. You can capture images up to 13 frames per second, and the camera takes up to 30 images at once. But, this technology isn't perfect. You can only take pictures in this mode if your resolution is 3 megapixels or lower. You won't be able to take advantage of the full 10 megapixels of the camera.
The Coolpix also has a motion detection feature, which detects when your subject is moving. It then automatically changes the shutter speed and ISO setting based on that movement. This means that your images won't be blurry or noisy even if your subject isn't standing still.
