:-)It's a good thing they fixed that before I bought my CoolPix 880. :-)

They changed it starting with the Coolpix 990 (it had setup options that let you choose the zoom starting position: wide, full telephoto, or last used. The 950 *always* started zoomed in to 115mm equivalent at each powerup, and I forgot to show her the zoom controls. You'd think it would be obvious (marked w/t).

But, if you've never used a digtal camera before, I guess not realizing it had a zoom lens would be understandable wtihout looking at any kind of manual or specifications (or letting someone show you how it worked). She knows now. :-)
