  1. I post this fix so that others who have the infamous Nikon Coolpix series
    of cameras can fix Nikon's engineering flaw in the camera body which Nikon
    refuses to fix despite the tens of thousands of unhappy Nikon Coolpix
    buyers.

    All the reviews totally missed the mark on the Nikon Coolpix camera

    For the record, before gluing the paperclip on the camera to fix Nikon's
    engineering flaws, I had called Nikon Service Relations at 800-645-6678 and
    they basically said that many people have the problem with the Nikon
    Coolpix series battery latch door breaking and that it wasn't something
    they cared about.
