Great but fragile

Pros:Easy to use and great pictures.

Cons:Fragile and virtually worthless now. Screen glass is too thin. 

I admit, I was impressed with this camera and its price.  Unfortunately, after taking reasonable care by putting it in a protected camera case and then carefully placing it in my carry on luggage, the back screen has shattered.  Of course, the big screen was a selling point, but you may want to consider that it is very fragile and thin.  Although not 2 months old, the camera store will not take it back and states that Nikon will not replace it as it was my fault.  I can't say I blame them, but Nikon should have engineering look at the thin glass on their big screen.
