Nikon A10 reviews

COOLPIX A10 Digital Camera is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed This camera is one I carry on a daily basis. I just like to have a small camera for informal events, family pix, travel, as a sketchbook for my painting, and for the times I just don't feel like lugging around the DSLR. I have always liked cameras that run on AA batteries. Some places have sketchy power and sometimes it is not handy to charge batteries-I also forget to plug in the battery pack in sometimes. It is really nice to just slap in power that is available almost everywhere and continue taking photos. Even my DSLR has will take an AA insert. Although not as feature laden as P/S cameras of the past the A10 fits my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pictures I bought this as a gift for a nine year old. She loves the camera. She has taken some great pictures of people and nature and they are really awesome. Way better than some 20 megapixel point and shoot ones. And the price was great. Compact. Very light weight. Feels good in your hands.Recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Great Nikon Product I'm very pleased with the Nikon COOLPIX A10. I ordered the basic kit which includes the 16MB SanDisk & Camera Case. The B&H price, service & fast shipping is fantastic. Even when I chatted 3 times with representatives to clarify specifications, their speedy response was very impressive. My only disappointment is the size of the camera case. The Nikon COOLPIX A10 fits nicely in the padded case. And there's a special compartment to store an additional SanDisk. But, there's no room to carry extra batteries, USB cable to download the photos to laptop or even extra lens/camera cleaning tissues. Things I like to have with me when I travel. This small size of the camera case is my only complaint. I realize there was much more to carry years ago with my F2A Photomic, but the aforementioned are still necessary even with compact digital cameras. Be aware of the small sized camera bag that's included when you purchase the basic kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great point and shoot camera Bought this camera for my wife to take on her trip to Singapore and Malaysia.� She is not good with electronic stuff so I wanted to make sure it uses double A batteries so she doesn't need to charge anything.� The picture are good and we will be able to enjoy them in the future.� Great little camera that doesn't weigh too much and takes fine pictures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy but order the USB cable if you get the deluxe kit. I ordered the deluxe kit. It would have gotten 5 stars if it came with the USB cable. If you don't get the cable you will need the memory card reader. If you get the camera at least add the USB cable. The download for photo organizing is available from Nikon and is listed in the instructions. Still a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&H rocks. And this camera is a perrenial simple fave. For simple shooting, this camera is durable, affordable, & efficient. I've owned three in the past decade now. I work them hard as a real estate appraiser. B&H has good deals and great shipping.
