This Nikon Coolpix S630 was great when I first got it.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I got this camera for Christmas in 2009. It was pretty new then and really expensive. It worked good at the time for what I needed it for. The 12 mega pixels was such an upgrade from the 5 mega pixel I had before it. It has great zoom and I love all the options it has for different types of pictures and different settings depending on your lighting. I just started using this camera for still shots of my 9 month old.
Can't take pictures of anything purple - good camera otherwise

Summary: This is a good little camera for quick trips to family outings or sites where you don't want to lugg a big camera along. The main problem I have with this camera is it doesn't pick up purple hues and captures them as blue. I bought the camera to take pictures of my projects and to post on my website but now I have to figure out another camera to purchase that will capture purples since that is one of my most popular selling colors.
My opinion - Nikon Coolpix S630--any suggestions ??

Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S-630 , takes great outdoor Portrait or Landscape pictures On the other hand ; having much difficulty getting a good quality indoor picture under almost any lighting situation... flash or no flash in these situations the pics. come out very yellow and fuzzy Also wondering if other owner users are hearing the same ratcheting noise while the camera trys to focus.
Summary: Very easy to use and great zoom potential and transfer abilities. It works best when you tilt the picture to give it an artsy flair. It doesn't focus very quickly and consequently I miss some shots and some shots come out blurry. That is my only criticism.
Excerpt: I have had 6 or 7 Nikon cameras, including my D200. The S630 is without a doubt the worst Nikon I have ever used. The picture quality is terrible for most shots. I took the camera on a trip to New Orleans, shot maybe 250-300 pictures over the week-end, and have probably dumped all but 20-30 pictures. I could go on and on about what I dislike about the S630, but suffice it to say that I returned it as soon as I got home. Problems: Difficult to use.
Summary: I bought this to replace my wifes old sony 1.3 mp digi. camera. as you can imagine, the image quality from that was very out of date. Now i also have to say that I have a Nikon D70 that i have had for years now and maybe thats why i really wasn't impressed with this S630. 1st impression... very nice little package, compact and buttons are in well placed locations. Startup time is almost instant and the screen size is nice, but should have some kind of screen protector.
Excerpt: small & black, sleek & stylish, lovely curves, easy to use... very sexy camera baby, yeah! HOWEVER, it shoots rather mediocre pictures. my webcam has taken better shots than this S630. i was quite let down actually, especially considering it's a Nikon. btw, all pics were taken on a bright sunny day, but they still look like crap.
Excerpt: I first tested my new Coolpix S630 indoors. The results were impressive. Today I took the Coolpix S630 to Jones Beach to continue testing. I am no longer favorably impressed. Problems: After about 10 minutes I put the S630 back in my pocket and gave up trying to compose photographs on the monitor screen. I swore never to part with my six year old Canon S400. The monitor screen is close to 100% invisible in bright daylight.
Summary: Görüntü kalitesi açık havada fena değil, ışığın yetersiz olduğu ortamlarda ise kalite yetersiz geldi bana. Video çekimi oda içinde yaptım. Pek iyi sayılmaz. Bilgisayar ekranında izlerken karıncalanma çok olduğunu gördüm. Muhtemelen açık havada daha iyi sonuçlar verecektir. Ama fiyatına göre alınabilecek iyi bir makine. Parasının karşılığını veriyor.
