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: Nikon CoolPix S640 is a must have for anyone who intend to travel. It is also a delight to use to capture the candid moments in life. The price is also very affordable. Sure, it is around USD$246 but it is a better alternative to the more expensive professional cameras that can go by thousands of dollars. It is also not very bulky with its less than 1-inch thick body. Handling it is almost as sexy as handling my girlfriend. Of course nothing can replace her!
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
