White Spots Ruins 75% of the photos

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S7c Digital Camera, Silver:

75% of images taken by this camera are ruined by white blobs, white halos, white circles, white comets, or other white artifacts that cover portions of the image. They show up randomly, with little rhyme or reason. Appears to be some sort of camera design flaw that allows flash light to bounce around inside the lens system. The artifacts move around in location from photo to photo, and are not the sort of thing you can fix easily in a photo editing program, so it's a deadly flaw, particularly when they pock-mark your subject's face. When this problem was brought to notice of [...], General Manager, Technical Support , Nikon Inc, he wrote "Our engineers have studied the problem at length and it only happens when there is particulate in the air. Smoke, water vapor, dust, etc. I am not implying that your area is dusty because a single piece of dust in the air can cause this. Again, there is nothing else we can do. Sorry." But as per my observations the spots are appearing in the very clear air conditioned environment also.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S7c Digital Camera, Silver:

Extremely happy with speed, no longer miss consecutive & adorable pictures of my small grandchildren (they don't hold poses)! Focus quickly, doesn't need extra time for flash to charge! I have used multiple cameras for over 40 years and this is my favorite (take thousands of pics annually!). Also have Coolpix 4100 and there is NO comparison - the S7c blows the older one out of the water! Also, has easy to see/read/use controls & screen-can use it even without my reading glasses!

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S7c Digital Camera, Silver:

This is a great compact point and shoot. From a person who normally shoots a Nikon N90S (film) camera this is an outstanding camera to pack with you and shoot pictures as the opportunity exist. The ability to go wireless and transmit your camera's photos to others via W-Fi is something you will really enjoy. I am very pleased with the purchase ... price ... features.... quality of the photos and the ruggedness of the camera itself.

I love to take outdoors & everyday pictures, always used the Kodak HQ disposable cameras, until i gave in and figured it was time to get myself my own camera and save some money. Had a rough time deciding between this one or the Sony Cyber-shot DSC T-50/B. AT THE END OF THE DAY,and breaking my head for over a week. I made my decision and must say, Am very satisfied...

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S7c Digital Camera, Silver:

This is the 4th digital camera that I have owned, and it is by far the very best! I especially like the feature that allows emailing of pictures on-the-spot from the camera. My wife and I were out to dinner last week, I have the server take our picture in a great setting, and I emailed it off to our friends before the salad arrived.
All of the features work very well for me, from the 3" view finder window to the easy selection controls.
In the past, I've purchased cameras for more than twice the price with less than half the value to me.
A great buy.
