Summary: We bought this camera after our old Coolpix got dropped and broke. This one works OK but some times when you turn it off the lense gets hung up and does not close. We then have to push it back into the camera. We also found if you do not make sure to click the battery back in it turns on but then quickly shuts off. This is a little confusing. We do not like having to remove the battery to recharge. If you set the picture to hi-res the picture quality is great.
Pros: The camera takes very nice pictures and you have many options to choose from on how you want the colors to look like, the saturation, etc. Really nice and big screen and very innovative wheel to scroll around through the menu and options.
Cons: The "menu, play, mode, and delete" buttons are very small. The camera is slow at taking nice, quality pictures in a certain amount of time compared to other cameras.
Summary: Got this camera for the wide angle lens, Nikon name and small size only to be sorely disappointed. The pictures are great, don't get me wrong, and I agree with the other reviews. However, as you can see there are one or two people who rate this camera very negatively. They are right, and I suspect that others who would rank this Nikon very low are just not bothering to write.
Summary: I had a Nikon Coolpix P3 that I liked very much. Then I "upgraded" to the Nikon S600. It is a good size but has many flaws. Many pictures are out of focus. I studied the manual and used the scenes and the other different settings but after using it on a 2 week European vacation I concluded that it is just a mediocre camera. The previous Nikon models were far superior. The housing itself is not even designed well.
Excerpt: Hola Ciaoadict@s!!! Durante mi reciente estancia en Tenerife de viaje con los de la facultad, pude comprobar la gran cantidad y variedad de cámaras digitales que habían, y la gran utilidad que tienen. Yo, tengo aún una cámara normal y sencillita de carrete (o película) ya que la cámara digital que tenía antes se me estropeó.
