Not what I was expecting.

Carrie, Amazon
12 December 2012
  • Summary: When I bought this camera, I was expecting it to take flawless pictures (hello, it's a Nikon!!). If I used the flash, it would wash out the photos. If I didn't use the flash, it was very blurry. Then to top it all off, the door to the batteries, broke. I never even dropped the camera. So, I resorted to taping the door closed, then the camera just stopped working. What a waste of money!!!

Takes Terrible Pictures

Chris W, Amazon
19 May 2011
  • Summary: I have owned this camera for about a year. To the point, it just doesn't take good pictures. A large majority of them end up being discarded because they are blurry or, no matter where I am, what the lighting is, what setting I use (and I've tried them all), or whether the battery is fully charged or not. I've also used more than one memory card with the same result.

Everything is blurry

John L. Rudenauer "The Cobra Commander", Amazon
12 November 2010
  • Summary: Purchased this camera for my fiance and it has been worthless. 95 percent of our pictures are blurry. I have tried indoor, outdoor, nighttime, overcast, sunny, you name the condition it cannot take pictures. I also tried all the settings... which by the way, good luck navigating the camera menus to choose shooting options because it is not intuitive at all how to change settings and it also doesn't seem to have any impact on the pictures it takes.

Don't believe the hype

Cowboy Jeff, Amazon
13 October 2010
  • 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.

Very disappointing

Thomas J. Dougherty, Amazon
9 August 2010
  • 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!

Not Blink Proof

Peter, Amazon
8 July 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera for the 'Blink Proof' feature. Every time a picture is taken fo me I blimlk. Even if they say the flash is off but really it is on, I will blink... so surely this camera has the solution? No. Apparently the blink proof feature only works when the flash is disabled. But considering I don't blink when the flash is disabled it's a uselss feature.

I've always used Nikons but this camera is very disappointing!

Kate, Amazon
7 June 2010
  • 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.

Great Photos - Very Poor Build Quality

C. Swanson "c_swanson", Amazon
6 June 2010
  • 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.

User Review

SnoopDiggity, Walmart
3 May 2010
  • Summary: This camera was a Consumer Report Recommended Buy on top of the good price. So I bought it. Even on a solid mount the camera can not take clear pictures in the digital zoom range. Any motion makes matters worse. Also, it's auto use of the flash in "low light" conditions ruins a lot of pictures and the flash has to be shut off and the pictures retaken w/o the flash. It does have a solid body construction.

I shouldn't have switched from canon 1200 to nikon 570

imm "iman", Amazon
27 April 2010
  • Summary: I switched from a Canon 1200 to this Nikon 570 because my Canon was dropped by my 3 year old (numerous times), and the Nikon D90 I bought just is too big/bulky to take quick shots. The Nikon 570 looks great, but these are the problems I found (I have three kids under three, so perhaps unique to me?): 1 - the start up time to take a picture from turning it on to taking a photo takes way too long - I miss a lot of shots as a result.
