Cons: The on/off switch fell down in the camera 6 wks from purchase. After repair, it happened again! I also have trouble getting good pics in low light and have trouble trying to figure out the best setting to use.
Summary: I have been taking SLR photos for over 40 years using a variety of equipment, and just purchased the Nikon S570. I also have a Nikon D60, which yields superb photos with crisp focus and great details. I needed a small, compact camera for travelling, and based on the D60 performance, decided to stick with Nikon. That has turned into a frustrating experience to say the least!
Pros: It's a compact digital camera that has the capability of taking good upclose shots.
Cons: Everytime I think i have pics saved to my card & I delete one pic i end up with no pictures. It reads no images on file.Im frustrated b/c when review the pic the next I see is they're eraced. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Is it the camera?
I've always used Nikons but this camera is very disappointing!

Summary: I carry a camera with me everywhere I go - Usually my D40x or D300 but I like to have a small point and shoot that I can leave in my purse, so when I don't feel like lugging around my SLRs or messing with settings for a particular shot of my friends, I can whip out my Point and Shoot and take a quick picture. I had a Nikon Coolpix S210 for the longest time before it finally broke on me so I decided to go for a bit of an upgrade. I wish I hadn't.
Summary: We bought this camera in February 2010 for my wife to use during her trip to Europe this spring. The camera takes great photos and is easy to use. However, it seems to be very cheaply built. The top of the on/off button fell off during the trip. You can still turn it on and off, but only not easily. Also, the cover for the battery/memory card compartment sticks, so you have to use something to pry it open.
Summary: I am not a professional photographer, I take pictures of my kids primarily. I was looking for a point and shoot that takes good still pictures for vacations. I was tired of hauling my heavy Nikon D50 and associated accessories everywhere. Well, after one 4 day trip of average to useless pictures, I am sending it back. I am in disbelief that all of these reviews are so favorable for this product. 1.
