Poor product

  • Summary: I bought this product, and at a year, the thing died! The lense wouldn't go out on it, and it kept coming up with a lens error. Don't recommend to anyone! And Nikon wouldn't do anything about it, even though it seems to be a known problem.

Nikon Coolpix is just ok.

  • Excerpt: So when my old digital camera went a couple of years ago my hubby surprised me with the Nikon Coolpix s560. I was so excited to use it but that quickly faded. I think it is on the verge of being my least favorite camera ever! I don't think the pictures are that great of quality and I am always seeing my friends pictures and how great they always look.

Sleek, intuitive design. Flat, washed out pictures

  • Summary: I've owned several budget point-and-shoots like this, and I am well aware of their limitations. I'll compare this to other similar cameras that I've owned. As far as the construction is concerned, it's a sexy, solid device. It's got an enormous LCD display, great optical zoom for a P&S, and it's small enough to carry comfortably in a pocket or on your wrist.

Not worth it.

  • Summary: While the camera is nice looking with a beautiful LCD and is easy to carry, there are lots of other cameras on the market that offer the same AND take good pictures. The bottom line with the Nikon Coolpix S560 is that it takes fine pictures in bright outdoor lighting, and terrible pictures anywhere else. I've had three Canon Powershot Digital Elph series cameras going back 12 years or so, and they were uniformly terrific.

  • Excerpt: The photo quality was poor considering the company was Nikon! Problems: Camera lasted about 4.5 months then broke down. I took it back to the retailer who sent it on to Nikon. Nikon said it had been dropped and wanted $160 to repair. I tried to deal with them and get them to honor their 2 yr warranty but to no avail. Finally went back to London Drug who refunded the cost and bought a new Pentax W80 waterproof which is a much better camera!

  • Summary: It's not at all good. From the zoom side, sound keeps on coming... It is getting zoomed in and out constantly... Sounds makes us more irritated... I am looking for changing this product.

Looks Cool, but Lacks Substance

  • Summary: As a proud owner of Nikons in the past, I was excited for my new s560 to come in the mail! But, after taking a few pictures I was shocked by the poor quality of the images. The colors were dark, and the images appeared grainy. It's impossible to get good results in low light. I compared pictures with a sony cybershot, and the difference in the images was unbelievable! I'm returning this camera immediately.

Nice features, mediocre picture quality

Scuba Von, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as a gift for my wife to supplement a 4-year-old, bulky Canon A95 digital camera. First pictures looked okay but seemed to be missing some clarity. All photos were shot in Auto mode and were taken indoors. To rate the photo quality, I took photos of the same object with the Nikon and with the old Canon. I imported the photos onto my laptop and split the screen with the two adjacent images. I shot the photos in Auto with no zoom. The results were stunning.
