With the Nikon Corporate Office near NYC, thought this would be the best place to post this.

One of the worst side effects of the QE3 by Obama and the FED, is the exact thing that's happened to Nikon. Just a year or two ago I would have said they were the best. Now I think they're very close to the worst. Why? They don't care. Why should they? They're going to make record profits even if they lose all of their customers. To those of you who don't know what the QE3 is, you're not doing your homework. Likewise with anybody still supporting Obama.

Nikon is not the only camera company going downhill. But they're certainly the most overrated now and they no longer take any pride in their product.

Sony right now is the best IMHO. Canon is still right up there. Avoid the others, especially Nikon.

I bought the P510 because they boasted of having the best zoom. That part is true but the camera is otherwise bad news. Terrible in low light situations and pictures are not sharp at all. I have a Canon Powershot now I'm very happy with.

Why is topix deleting links? Well thankfully I read it before it was deleted. It showed that less than 10 percent of Nikon customers were happy with their customer service. I was undecided between Nikon and Canon before reading that so thank you for posting it.

LOL, if you only knew. The guy you're bad rapping has several photo albums ranked #1 in the world including "World's Best Sunsets Album."
Google it in if you don't believe me. He is "knightpirate." I like his Fractal Style Symmetry album the best myself.

Then Google in "Complaints against Nikon" to see how awful their customer service is.

Last and Least look in a mirror and tell yourself what a fool you are for posting such inane nonsense.

Sunsets are the easiest thing in the wold to shoot. Fractals? Just stealing from nature. So not only does the fool not know how to use a camera. He has no talent.

You're a clown just talking out of your butt. Show us what you have, just for laughs. With your mentality you probably blame Bush for Obama's failures.
I have nothing against Nikon, but I like to do sports shooting, so they'd be far from my first choice.

Don't even bother with Straight Shooter. Obviously works for Nikon. The other people here are right. Nikon cameras are slow with digital noise and poor focus. Their customer service is awful now too.

A year from now they'll be belly up, so why even waste our time with this.

LOL, you handed that suckah his lunch. And, it would take more than good editing software to save Nikon's butt.

Your post is right on the money. There are companies still worse than Nikon, but people still think of them as one of the two best.
Not even close. Canon and Sony are in a league of their own now and Nikon customer service is disgusting. Nothing personal but I hope that arrogant company goes BK. We won't miss them.

It's only going to get worse now that Obama and his sidekick Bernanke have really gone over the top with this QE3. We can only hope that Canon and Sony don't start going downhill too. But for certain, I'll never deal with Nikon again. Their customer service is one of the worst of any company.

Add Samsung to the list of bad cameras. The WB210 is a total joke. You're not supposed to get a lot of camera noise at low ISO's. But wait until you try this one. Nikon Coolpix cameras are bad news too. They all have one thing in common: Photos come out very soft with lack of detail.

Small world Jimmy. I bought that rotten WB210 from Samsung too. I guess they want to challenge Nikon for most overrated. Nod still goes to Nikon because of what was said on post #15 here.

Nikon only can compete with Canon because they have to drop all their prices. Otherwise Canon would kill them.

Hey, "straight shooter" you're full of it. I'm a world class photographer, I know how to use cameras. I needed a good pocket camera, so I just bought a the Canon S100. It's awesome. Makes the Nikon look sick.

Find a job at a decent camera company, because Nikon will be laying you and everybody else off soon.
