Summary: I bought this camera for my daughter. Its very nice and good for travel since its compact and she's able to rotate the lens. The problem was when she gets to her distination the camera freezed and she cant use it. She end up buying disposable camera. And after five days the camera started working again. I developed the pictures and they are excellent.
Summary: This Nikon camera is great! It is small yet full features. You have a fold out view panel like a video camera, and the S6600 functions as a video camera limited only by the size of your memory card. Do buy a 32 GB card, as you will take a lot more photos than you normally would. The optics are great. I had purchased additional rechargeable batteries and a charger, but I am still on the original battery since Christmas 2013 in mid-February 2014.
Preliminary Review but it looks like a very nice camera!

Summary: I bought this camera direct from Japan, even though I understand the warranty is not valid in the USA. Nikon is a good manufacturer and I trust this particular camera will be defect free. Also for the same reason, I don't think the extended warranty will cover it, best to make sure with the warranty company before purchasing.
Summary: Low image quality, shaky and almost all pictures are blurred even with the right setting. I expected more since the commercial highlighted remarkable features. I'm disappointed. I thought all nikon cams are a great buy.
Sibling rivalry: feature trade-offs and price difference

Summary: The Nikon S6000 series of point-and-shoot cameras are very popular. I have the S6400 which is nearly identical to the S6600 except for the articulated rear screen. If you do not need this feature, I'd recommend saving a price difference of $100 (42%) and get the S6400. I prefer the location of the flash unit (on the right side of the lens) on the S6400 because it can't be blocked by your finger while taking a picture.
