Excerpt: Don't buy this camera if you plan on using flash. See "Problems encountered" below. I bought this for my wife last summer as a tiny carry-everywhere camera. However she never uses the camera because of the severity of the flash problem.
Summary: Use this for business shots in energy audits so Macro, high ISO settings, etc all get empoyed dependent on teh shot and light. . Camera lost focus almost immediately, and undr warranty Nikon fixed it.
Excerpt: To add to this review, I dropped that camera at Disney, The best thing that could have happen to it. It will be a while before I try another Nikon PS. But the D90 is still going strong and it was a great buy...
Excerpt: after five Canon SD ponit & shoot cameras, I decided to give Nikon a try. I didn't have too much expectations to begin with so not a much of disappointment per se. S620 has good combination of features, lens, size, and price point. It is ok for very casual shootings such as travel.
Excerpt: I will bring this camera back to the store. I bought it to replace a stolen SD870/Ixus 860, but it can't match regarding colour. The colour quality of the S620 is disappointing, and in my opinion the colour quality of skin unacceptable.
Excerpt: This cam takes really sharp pics for a nikon point and shoot. For once it actually beats a canon ixus in terms of image quality. The wide angle has quite decent control on the distortions. i'm impressed as compared even to a DSLR.
Excerpt: I wanted a compact digital as I found I wasn't using my Olympus 7070 as much as I should. So much easier to have a little P&S in your pocket than have a larger camera slung around your neck. Secondly, I plan on taking the camera on an extended vacation, so it had to be small.
