      I bought this camera because the zoom by my older camera was broken during my holidays in new york. I was looking for a new camera than I can use immediately. And so I bought a nikon camera again, only slightly better. The zoom ist so great and when you make pictures during you go fast, the camera took razor sharp pictures. I took photos while traveling in the bus, while walking through the city and so it was important for me, that the camera has a very good zoom and can make good snapshots. In the moment I can´t say anything negative.

      he instruction mania that comes with this model is sparse. If you are looking for information on the multiple features, how to navigate them and use them to your advantage you won't find them in the booklet that comes with. The Nikon site is slightly better….but with virtually no customer support or in a twist of irony only virtually customer support you are left with forums and other similarly clueless customers. I could really use some help and am still waiting for a "product specialist" to get back to me three weeks later.

                    I'm thrilled with the quality of my photos. I'm not an expert, hence a point & shoot, but this Nikon fulfills my desire to snap photos at a party or just walking around NYC, giving me clear, focused pix that I'm happy to share. The download program could be easier.

                                Comments about COOLPIX S5200 Digital Camera (Plum):

                                I bought this camera because the zoom by my older camera was broken during my holidays in new york. I was looking for a new camera than I can use immediately. And so I bought a nikon camera again, only slightly better. The zoom ist so great and when you make pictures during you go fast, the camera took razor sharp pictures. I took photos while traveling in the bus, while walking through the city and so it was important for me, that the camera has a very good zoom and can make good snapshots. In the moment I can´t say anything negative.
