  • Excerpt: Aimed at casual photographers and people who need a sturdy, lightweight, good looking compact camera for unexpected moments, and at enthusiasts who from time to time need a competent camera without the size and bulk of the much bigger prosumer and small DSLR bodies, the Nikon Coolpix S600 is an...
  • Pros: The Nikon Coolpix S600 works well in a wide variety of family, personal, social, business and public situations for casual snap-shooting, amateur photography in good light, and all sorts of events with friends, family and kids. It starts quickly, makes good quality images (in the hands of a compe...
  • Cons: The Nikon Coolpix S-series seems to be a direct competitor to Canon's SD/Ixus line and the Nikon models succeed in many of the same ways. However, the Canon user interface is somewhat more intuitive. Nikon's merry-go-round on-screen selector relies on screen icons rather than a hardware selection...

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S600 is a capable and speedy basic point-and-shooter. But at $300, it should offer more than a bare-bones feature set and so-so performance.
  • Pros: Slim body. Lightning-fast boot-up time. Variety of useful in-camera editing options.
  • Cons: Expensive. Limited feature set. Long lag time between shots. Daylight shots slightly muted. Significant barrel distortion. Mediocre face-detection performance.

  • Conclusion: From time to time I find a digital camera I just cannot get on with. This is the case with the Nikon Coolpix S600. It is a shame because the camera has a number of impressive points such as start up time and shutter lag delay.
  • Pros: Ease of use - wide angle lens - shutter lag times - camera start up time
  • Cons: Picture quality

Pocket Lint
18 June 2008
  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S600’s lightening fast start-up belies an average (overall) performance elsewhere in the camera, so it is a bit of a mixed bag. And yet, the decent design and build and good image quality might just sway it for you.
  • Pros: Build and styling, image quality, easy to use, screen, responsive
  • Cons: No manual controls or overrides, underpowered flash, it might start quickly but you still can’t shoot for a couple of seconds
