Disappointing

J. Karasek, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • Summary: I won the Nikon S630 in a drawing in 2009. This was a fairly top-of-the-line camera back then, and I was excited. I'm very glad I didn't pay for it. Blurry, grainy pictures are the norm with this one. Don't even think about using indoors. LCD screen tricks you into thinking you've got some good pictures. Once you pull them up on a computer, the truth hits you and you realize those moments you captured are garbage. Auto or manual, doesn't matter what settings you use.

Frustrated by photo quality

Busy NY Mom, Amazon
24 May 2010
  • Summary: Although in theory this camera comes with some great features, I am very disappointed. I had a Coolpix 4800 for several years, and despite the fact that it boasted only 4 MP, i feel that the photos were far superior to the ones i am getting out of the s630. I was excited to find another nikon with a lot of zoom, and expected the same quality as what i had previously. Unfortunatly, i was dissapointed.

Not the quality you would expect from Nikon

T. Parker, Amazon
7 March 2010
  • Summary: I have a Kodak that is a few years old and thought it was time to upgrade. I went to several stores and checked the camera out. You cannot tell the picture quality until you download them. I was swayed in my decision because the sales associate said the Nikon was the most durable. I carefully read reviews from many sources. I thought I would take a chance on this camera because there were people who said to change the factory settings for a better picture quality.

Poor indoor photo quality

Linda L. "Linda L.", Amazon
17 February 2010
  • Summary: The quality of the photos this camera takes indoors is poor. The photos have a yellow or brown tint, and tend to be blurry. Maybe this one has something wrong with it--but it definitely did not fulfill expectations.

It Took Blurry Pictures

S. Swisher "SamTaxMan", Amazon
18 January 2010
  • Summary: I gave this camera to my 27 year old daughter for Christmas as she wanted a zoom which was 7x optical. She started using it and the pictures were coming out blurry. She went online to a camera bulletin board and found out that other owners had the same problem with it. I returned it.

Blurry Pictures

Scott, Amazon
2 January 2010
  • Summary: Had this camera for about 3 weeks, took in on vacation to NY City. About 1/4 of the pictures came out very blurry. We were a bit disappointed. We were careful to allow it to properly focus but still some pictures were just not good. The camera looks and feels great though! So we returned it for a slightly more expensive, more bulky Canon SX200IS. The Canon has yet to take a bad picture so it wasn't user error with the Nikon.

Nikon Coolpix S630, Poor Picture Quality

C. Solomon, Amazon
17 April 2009
  • Summary: Product design is flawed. Very poor picture quality that is not typical of a Nikon branded product. Pictures are very noisy, even with decent ambient lighting at low ISO (eg, 100 or 200). VR doesn't work very well and the auto white balance is awful. The camera looks great and feels good in the hand.

Nikon Coolpix S630 Review

techcafe, Unbeatable
21 August 2009
  • Excerpt: small & black, sleek & stylish, lovely curves, easy to use... very sexy camera baby, yeah! HOWEVER, it shoots rather mediocre pictures. i was quite let down actually, especially considering it''s a Nikon. a significant number of shots are out-of-focus, even though the AF-assist locked-on to the subject, and despite the fact that vibration reduction and motion detection are both enabled. also, what you SEE is NOT always what you GET.
  • Pros: it looks nice
  • Cons: picture quality
