White Balance problems

bjk "singleminded", Amazon
28 June 2010
  • Summary: This is my second Nikon Coolpix. I've had this camera for a little over one year and decided to buy something else. Pictures taken in low light, with flash turn out poorly. Adjusting the White Meter is like hoping for the best. I sent my camera to Nikon to be adjusted, with pictures taken with other Nikons (idential locations/subject) that my family own to show the differences. Our other Nikons have a much lower MP's.

Very Fragile Screen on Coolpix S610

B. Rafoth, Amazon
16 March 2010
  • Summary: I took about 150 shots with my new Coolpix S610, and then I learned how fragile the viewing screen is. My initial experience was great: - Fast set-up right out of the box. - Long-lasting battery - Easy-to-follow screen settings and icons - Large, bright screen But then when I was stepping off an escalator, my camera brushed against the handrail and the screen was damaged.

Still Working With It

Deborah Sterling, Amazon
10 July 2009
  • Summary: Nikon Coolpix S610 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) Zoom (Midnight Black) Am used to a much bigger, more expensive camera (but only 4MP)-- takes beautiful pictures. Wanted one I could put in my pocketbook and always "be ready". Having a lot of trouble getting used to it -- no view finder (have to just look at large screen); in bright sun, can't see picture being taken -- am looking for a sun screen that might help; went to print off my...

Slow start up and recovery

T. Anderson, Amazon
29 May 2009
  • Summary: Received this camera as a gift. The reviews I read rave about the start up speed of this camera, but I find it to be terrible. The lcd screen turns on immediately after pushing the power button and the lense shoots out very quickly, but the camera does not respond to any button pushes for a quite a while - shutter release, menu, mode, any button. Eventually the icons show up on the lcd and only then does the camera respond.

OK, but not great, so far

akitachow "akitachow", Amazon
24 April 2009
  • Summary: Being a Nikon DSLR user and a Canon point-and-shoot user, I thought I would give the Nikon CoolPix 610 a try. I think I'll go back to Canon. The shutterspeed seems slow and there is something "jerky" about it. There are other things I don't like, like the overall feel of the thing. One thing that REALLY annoys me is the PROPRIETARY USB HUB.

S550 a better camera

Christine Lee "texas gal", Amazon
12 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought the Nikon Coolpix S610 thinking it would be better than the S550 that broke. I thought it was going to be a better version of the camera that I loved! Although the larger screen and the round dial is nice, the simplicity of the S550 was much better. S610 is not good at taking night pictures as the S550. Devasted that the newer model is not an upgrade to the S550. A slight disappointment.

CoolPix S610 is just OK

Beatriz Redd "QueenBea", Amazon
5 March 2009
  • Summary: I got this camera because it was free. If I had a choice I might not have bought this camera. One of the biggest things wrong with it is the download. When I download my pictures I like to have them organized in a separate folder for each day the pictures were taken. Because I don't download every time I take pictures, I could have up to a week's worth of pictures. With the Nikon software, it downloads into a Nikon folder and labels the pictures with the date shot.

Good dealer

Zhiyuan Zheng "carapace", Amazon
25 January 2009
  • Summary: The camera was not exactly what I expected to be. The sound recording is horrible, and the pics are not good enough. However, the dealer is nice, communicative and responsible. After I contacted them, they quickly answered and give me full refund. So, after all, I am satified with their service.

A huge drawback

jackotis "jackotis.com", Amazon
1 January 2009
  • Summary: This is a really nice camera - large monitor, easy to use, takes fine pictures...but it doesn't have a viewfinder. Outdoors, in bright sunlight, the monitor is too washed out to use - leaving you in a real 'point-and-click' quandry. No framing possible (much less picture review or menu setting check/change). Use it only in the dark or indoors and all will be well.
