Summary: I LOVE this camera!!! I have had it for over a year and the picture quality is just amazing. Although not the most person friendly camera I have ever used, it has several modes to test with and the shutter speed is much quicker than most cameras I have seen in this price range.
Summary: From January through to mid March I searched for a point and shoot with low shutter lag. I have a very fast child and all the cameras I have used until now were too slow and I was missing shots. For this feature most people referred me to a DSLR.
Summary: I recieved a Nikon Coolpix s640 over the Holidays as a gift. As a result, I just bought one for my girl for Valentine's Day. The camera powers up and shoots quick. My old PS camera took forever to do these. The flash evenly lights the frame. This was another shortcomming of my previous PS.
Summary: The main camera that is used for a wide range of subjects is my Nikon D70 that I have been using since 2003. The Nikon Coolpix 640 turned out to be my constant companion with a cord attaching around my neck and the camera inserted in my shirt pocket.
Summary: Bought it as a Christmas gift for my teen age daughter. She loves pink and was tickled pink that I found her a great camera in her favorite color. Fortunately, it's not a bright or obnoxious pink. It takes fantastic pictures and is incredibly easy to operate.
