Summary: I have a Nikon S60 of my own, but I purchased this one for a member of my family for her birthday, and she was so surprised because she always tried to get me to give her mine. However she just love it and so do I.
Summary: With all the hype, I expected the NIKON Coolpix to be a great purchase but it barely made it to "good". Sure, it takes pictures but the quality, menu format and overall user interface is very poor. I do not recommend this camera. Go for the Sony cyber-shot.
Do not buy this camera, it will fail in 6 months...

Excerpt: This S60 Cool pix camera was a Xmas present. While on vacation in Europe in July, the lens would not open or close, "lens failure". Sent it to Nikon under warranty, and after 8 weeks of arguing they have refused to repair as it has a scratch on it ... $100 repair fee or they won't return it. Nikon customer service is in the Dominican Republic and they lost my repair order number, my dispute case several times, computers crashed and you have to wait forever on hold.
Excerpt: This is the best camera that i have purchased, but my only problem is the touch screen, its to sensitive. At times the picture quality does suffer at night, but during the day, WOW!!!! But a little getting used to will do no harm! You will have to have paitents with the camera, it does tend to have a lens error, every now and then, it only happend to me twice, for the first week that i had it, but it has not happened since.
Excerpt: When I first got this for christmas I was so excited! Of course the Ashton Kutcher commercials helped but I fell in love with the ease of using it and that it was touch screen! I also loved how you could draw on it or do borders or even use stamps and you can crop it on the camera instead of waiting til you upload to a computer. I got this in the champagne color itsl a beautiful color and I did purchase a memory card for it but alone it holds alot of pictures.
Excerpt: I received this camera two years ago for Christmas. I was very disappointed in the quality at first, but I decided to keep it because I didn't want to lose money due to Best Buy's restocking fees. I don't normally read manuals, but I did for this item which helped me to figure out the different settings. After adjusting the settings on the camera, the quality improved drastically. I fell in love with this camera and began taking pictures of everything.
Excerpt: I recieved this camera three years ago for Christmas. It still works! After 3 years of use it still works great. The only differance is a few scratches due to me dropping it. The camera has a nice band that goes around your wrist. On the end of the band is a plastic pen to write on the screen. The touch screen is nice but can be tricky. You have to be patient with this camera.
Excerpt: This camera is a great buy! Inexpensive and takes wonderful pictures. I purchased this from best buy as a package deal and it came with extra battery, charger, case etc. I do not have the touch screen version, but find that this one is easier to use without the touch screen as i know someone who has that model. you definitely need to read the instruction manual as some of the buttons are hard to figre out just by looking at the picture.
Excerpt: I absolutely love my Nikon Coolpix S60! My husband bought it for my for my last birthday. I have wanted one for a long time. I love the touchscreen! It is easy to use. I like how long the battery lasts. I also love how big the screen is on the back, despite it being a smaller camera. I love the fact that it is thin, too. It comes with a re-chargable battery as well as the battery charger. The only thing I do not like about it is the battery is not easily replacable.
