Summary: The camera takes absolutly fantastic pictures. Unfortunately it is very fragile. We had the camera fall about 1' and hit the floor. After whicht it was no longer functional (reports "Lens Error"). The Nikon repair shop wants $150 to repair it. A bit steep for a $175 camera. We now own a Stylus 790 SW from Olympus. The image quality isn't quite as good, but the camera is supposed to be able to survive a 5' drop.
Summary: This camera looks like a little tank, and I bought it to replace a Canon Elph that really had been a tank. I had tossed that old camera in briefcases, backpacks, pockets, and it had always been fine. When looking for a new pocketable camera, I was drawn to the S500 because it reminded me of my trusty old Elph. The Nikon had similarly rugged looks. But it fails to live up to the promise.
Excerpt: сейчас приобрела себе canon 1000D ооочень довольна покупкой=)
Pros: легкий,компактный,быстро включается
Cons: лично мне не понравился по сравнению с другими цифровиками. качество ужас спасал фотошоп,на телефоне фотографии и то лучше получаются. после нажатия кнопки затвора-сильно стал жужжать объектив(через некоторое время после покупки)
