Summary: We already own an identical camera, and needed a second one, as our two girls fought over who would get to take the camera to summer camp! Buying used was a great way to save money on a camera that we already knew was perfect for our needs. The camera was in better shape that our existing one, in respect to scuffs and overall wear & tear. It came with a fully charged battery and the necessary cables for charging and getting pictures onto computer.
Summary: I decided to get this Nikon when we had a baby. At the time I had been relying on my cell and out old digital was a whopping 2.3MP... yeah it had been awhile! Of course I wanted to take millions of pictures of my new baby and share them with my friends and family so this came to live with me. I love it. The pictures are great (in comparison to my parents cameras - panasonics) and up until my baby started walking was perfect.
Summary: I had my Nikon s560 for two years before I moved on to a newer model. As with all things you get what you pay for but don't let that fool you. When I bought my s560 it was a new item and had an attractive price to it. I have always used slrs but I was looking for something I could take with me when traveling extra light. Thinking I would only use a point and shoot once or twice a month I was shocked after figuring out it's versatility and quality of images.
Nikon needs to imporove the point and shoot cameras!

Summary: For the most part, this camera looks good, quick response and the battery life is great! But the VR feature is not all that and the over all picture quality needs work. Point and shoot cameras are not made for top notch quality photos but for the money you spend, they should be. Right? I want to look into getting the Nikon Coolpix S8000 but read the comments and...poor results with photos. What is it?
Summary: I do like this camera so far because of the bigger screen to look at your subject. This is the first digital camera that I have had so I'm kindof new at this. I haven't yet read all the features it has from the instruction book but so far I have been able to take pictures and download them to my computer easily.
Summary: The nikon Coolpix S560 is a great camera, but when I checked on other sites afterward I found that it was overpriced on Amazon from 20 to 35 dollars. Just type in the name and model of the camera on any search engines and view the results.
Summary: The Canon SD1200 is a sleek high powered pocket camera, that can go anywhere and still take great pictures day or night. It's not complicated to operate and yet if you so desire you can use the camera's manual mode. The lens is a Canon, therefore you can rely on it's quality. I've owned a series of other digitals, but I keep going back to the Canon. This is my third purchase in the SD Series and would definitely recommend this or any Canon Camera.
