Summary: This is my first camera. I am not an expert in cameras, so my judgment could be biased. But I really love the camera. I like the look of it and the picture it takes. You can even get pretty good pictures in very low light conditions. Very easy to use. It has mode for many scenes: food, sunset, fireworks ... etc. Suitable for those who doesn't know much about photograph, like me.
Excerpt: I like the fact that Nikon ’s CoolPixS640 is very easy to use because of its image stabilization function and auto-focus system. Recently I graduated and we all tried to capture a picture of us jumping up in mid-air. The shots turned out great. Our images were not blurred when we were in mid-air. The 5X optical zoom and Auto Scene Selection made it very easy for me to capture some of my favorite shots of the scenery when I went to Bali for a holiday last June.
Summary: My 5 year old Canon PowerShot stopped working so I needed a new one. I shopped various brands/models and this one seemed to have all the features I wanted. I got a good auction price on eBay and was on my way. Once I got the camera I found that it lived up to Nikon's advertised claims. It was easy to use, very quick, simple software, excellent color detail, lightweight, 5x zoom feature.
Summary: this camera is wonderful! I was looking for something easy to use with a lot of features without the big price tag and this is it! I had to get a new camera but i mostly use it for my photography class and its awesome. I ride the train to and from school and i am able to get great moving shots even from the train! I would def recommend this camera to anyone!
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
