I picked up a refurb Coolpix A on fire sale, and I have been using it for about a month. I thought I would share some feedback. I really like it overall. When the camera was released, I did not pay a lot of attention because I think retail was something like $1k+. Impression #1: This camera is small. I was expecting small, but I am still surprised how tiny this thing is. It easily slides into the back pocket on my jeans, even with a small neck strap attached. I like to carry the camera using the neck strap, but it is nice to be able to get it into a pocket if need be. With such a compact form factor, you would expect some ergonomic compromises. However, the layout works well for me. Fellow member Ralph Oshiro mentioned the nice "on/off" switch and I completely agree. It is a little thing, but the nice on/off actuation really adds to the user experience. You can quickly and easily power the camera on and off, which I find myself doing often in casual photo situations. Also, the little nub grip on the front works fine for me. Despite the small size, one handed operation works fine. Otherwise, the buttons and menu operation are very similar to Nikon DSLR.
