I purchased a Nikon Coolpix for work. It worked for a few months. It started having issues holding a charge. We figured it was not being plugged in all the way. A few months back, it stopped working all together. I was finally able to go purchase a new battery. Since the battery comes with some charge on it, it worked just fine. However, after that charge was depleted, the issue with charging the battery once again became apparent. I called Nikon. They are not very friendly to begin with. The agent agrees it is in fact an issue with the camera. However, since I did not call within the first year, I will have to pay to fix whatever is wrong with their product. That's insane. I will not buy, nor recommend anyone else buy any Nikon product. One day they will understand that customer service is a thing.
