Takes great pictures and fast, not as fast as a DSLR but pretty fast for a point a shoot.  I got this little guy for $95 on eBay when I though I had droped my Samsung SL420, kinda glad that happened now because this camera takes MUCH better pictures, so any pictures after April 1 2012 are taken with the Nikon, prior to that was my Samsung SL420 OR my phone (and we all know phones are just as good as a DSLR huh?  LOL).

As of August 13 2017 this we are still using this camera and have had it for over 5 years, it has put up with being dropped hard I don't know how many times, it's actually trying to come apart from being dropped on concrete the last time, though it makes little noises when focusing it still works just as good as it did the first day we used it.
