Easy to use camera for non professionals with professional results

Nikon Coolpix P100
Advantages: So easy to use, brilliant quality, loads of different features, large screen makes easy viewing
Disadvantages: It goes into sleep mode a little bit too quickly.
A brilliant camera, which can easily be used by the non professionals (such as myself) to take great quality pictures without the confusion found in other similar cameras. It contains a varied range of features on the camera, including settings for dusk/dawn, sunset/sunrise, party, indoor, fireworks, beach, food, pets, portraits, close ups, a backlighting option, panorama option for capturing great views, and others such as black and white etc.
The camera is lighter than I expected making it less cumbersome to take places. The memory capacity obviously depends on the type of memory card you have, and the intended use for your camera, but so far I have found my 8gb memory card to be more than sufficient for my photographic needs.
Overall the quality of the pictures is very very good, with colours as clear as they are to the eyes, and great zoom options (optical and digital) which allow you to zoom great distances while still retaining a clear quality of pictures.
The camera is simple to use with great results.
I got my camera when it was in the sale and found it to be a brilliant bargain (costing £170 with a case and memory card). However even if you are purchasing this item at full price I still believe it to be a worthwhile purchase.
Summary: A highly recommended product to anyone who wants great pictures but isn't a professional!
