Of course, I chose the pink, I am a girly girl after all☺
I wanted something that I could just throw in my purse or in my pocket and have it on me at all times. You might ask…why not just buy a smart phone? Well, I am not ready to spend that chunk of change at this point. I was able to purchase this cutie for only $99.00, and that is A LOT less than the smart phones and their data plans.There are plenty of other options for ultra-compact cameras with far better image quality, but none of them will be quite this compact!! This was my biggest factor in purchasing this camera.
I am looking forward to having a little fun with my new toy. Adults every now and then need to play too right?
What is your opinion of this compact camera?
Have a great weekend.

Perfect selection. I gave this cam to my sister on her birthday.
What a wonderful little camera! I agree with you about smart phones – they are overpriced, and the picture taking ability on them is never as good as on a real camera.
Hhhmmm… I’ll have to look into this little camera. I do have a smart phone but I’ll have to compare the specifics of the zoom, megapixels etc… Thanks for the info and I love the Pink!!!

I love your new toy!! Pink is one of my favorite colours. I am looking forward to all your pictures 🙂
Ohh have fun with your new toy…love the PINK!!
Love it. I think I want one as well. Pretty in pink.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
It is so fun to have a toy!! makes me feel like a kid again.
I just love your new pink camera! Nikon’s are great! Thank you for stopping to visit me from the blog hop. Wishing you all the best in 2013.
Thanks for that suggestion… I’ll have to watch for one after I finish paying for Wedding stuff for my daughter… ugh…
I sure can understand about paying for daughters wedding….been there done that as they say.
Nice! Have fun with it. How did I know it would be pink! Lol
I love the look of that new toy!I’m thinking I outght to save up for one. 🙂
Look tempting for me to get one of that. Unfortunately, I bought my Fujifilm JX three months ago (also pink!) and I don’t think I am willing to buy new one yet. Love that it’s touchscreen.
That’s a great buy! I’m not ready to pay for a smart phone either. I was, however, ready to upgrade from my little Kodak Easy Share so my husband bought me a Nikon P510 Coolpix. Yep. It’s cool alright 🙂 So far, I am loving it! I’ve never had such a nice camera and I know I will gets lots of use out of it. So glad you had a great Christmas. I hope you have a terrific New Year!
Oh my, I want this girly girl pink camera so bad! I have a big Nikon D40 and would love a small little camera that you can carry on you at all times, and this pink one would do it! Love it, love it! Hopefully it will be under the Christmas tree for me next year! 🙂
A compact little hot pink camera and case – perfect for you!
Happy Holidays to you and very best wishes for the New Year! sending all my Love, Linda
How pretty! I can’t wait to see the pictures you’ll take with it! Nikon is a great brand.
