Summary: I use the camera for indoor and out door family photos and scenere. I also use it at work maybe once a month for up cloose shots of hardware. The video is just a novelty for me. Images are very clear, face detection and image stabilization work very well. 99% of the shotsw are great in normal lighting. Like all cameras you need to play with the settings in low light. Good form and feel especially with the Slate Black. Highly recommended.
Pros: Bright LCD, Easy Setup, Easy to Keep Clean, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality, Strong Construction
Summary: I bought this to shoot my daughters wedding. I was amazed at how versatile it is. After many, many years of 35mm and 120, I bought an Olympus digital P&S. It was "OK" but not great. This camera was a real joy. They have made wonderful advances in the onboard computer. Not just in the things it will do for you but in the options you have in overriding the preset definitions. I am a little disappointed that the battery doesn't last longer w/o recharging.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I bought this camera for my deployment to Iraq. i absolutely love it. the ONLY complaints i have about it are that it only takes videos for 10min at a time and that if you dont have flash on that sometimes the pictures can be really grainy. but that is easily fixable...
Summary: Before this camera I always used Canon and get very used to Canon's applications and style. This time I wanted to try new thing and everybody suggested Nikon. This one little bit slower than Canon SD 850 but it has perfect color control with flash where Canon doesnt have! It very small and easy to use. I like it but if I need to buy again I will prefer Canon instead.
Excerpt: S600 was unable to return to it’s shooting mode from view mode with a half press of the shutter button. You had to press the Play or Menu button, depending on what you are doing and the extra time it takes slows me down. There’s lot to like about the S600 - good colour and image quality, VR, decent ISO performance, usable menu layout and a wider than usual 28mm lens - but middling performance keep it getting it a higher score.
