When I decided I wanted to buy a digital camera, I was lucky enough to have an enthusiastic sales person to help me, because within the £400 price range there is a lot of rubbish. The Nikon Coolpix 700, however, has the quality of a camera twice its price. Although it doesn't have a zoom lens, the 2.1 megapixel images are so sharp you can crop your images with a good photo editor and the pictures remain beautifully clear. Its easy to use, and if you can get the camera shop to throw in a free cardport, image downloading is very quick (otherwise a bit slow through the serial port). The LCD display is smooth and doesn't 'break up' and the colour saturation is spot-on.
The only criticism I would have if that it eats batterries! You must use rechargables, because they will be dead after about 15 shots with the flash and the LCD display on.
Overall, a fantastic piece of kit and I'm thrilled with it!
Starting at 4 GB, SDHC cards offer larger-volume data storage and optimized recording ... more
performance with support for FAT 32 file formats. In addition, Kingston's SDHC cards use a new speed "class" rating known as Class 4 that delivers a minimum transfer rate of 4 MB/sec. for optimum performance with SDHC devices. Although identical in size to today's standard SD card, the new SDHC cards are designed differently and are only recognized by SDHC host devices. To ensure compatibility, look for the SDHC logo on cards and host devices (cameras, camcorders, etc.). For added reliability and durability, our solid-state SDHC memory cards are built of nonvolatile memory components and have no moving parts that could wear out or break. All cards are 100-percent tested and are backed by a lifetime warranty and 24/7 live technical support. Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products - 1GB=1,000,000,000 Bytes. In OS system, it would be displayed as 1,000,000,000 Bytes/1024/1024/1024 = 0.93GB - *PLEASE NOTE Class 4 cards may not support HD recording in your device. Please check your device specification and requirements.
