Nikon Coolpix S600

 

The Nikon Coolpix S600 is a capable and speedy basic point-and-shooter, but at $300, it should offer more than a bare-bones feature set and so-so performance.

Slim body. Lightning-fast boot-up time. Variety of useful in-camera editing options.

Expensive. Limited feature set. Long lag time between shots. Daylight shots slightly muted. Significant barrel distortion. Mediocre face-detection performance.

Nikon Coolpix S600 review:

 

I admit to having mixed feelings about the Nikon Coolpix S600. On one hand, it's a very attractive-looking ultracompact capable of producing pretty 10-megapixel photos. But on the other, it's a tad slow and underfeatured with an occasionally annoying...

Compact and attractive; very nice outdoor photos; optical image stabilization; relatively wide-angle lens.

Annoying interface conventions; slow shot-to-shot performance.

A good, though not outstanding, compact camera, the Nikon Coolpix S600 is hindered by some shortcomings in its performance and operation.

I have to say that for the price, this camera is simply outclassed by the competition. This review would have been immensely different if it weren't for the price point. It's like trying to review a DVD at a Blue-Ray price, it could be a good review if...

Nikon Coolpix S600 Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

The Nikon Coolpix S-series are slim, stylish digicams that come complete with the latest Nikon technology such as Face-Priority AF, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and D-Lighting.

The Nikon Coolpix S600 has a 10 megapixel imager, 4x optically stabilized, wide-angle zoom lens and a 2.7" LCD display. The S600 derives its power from a custom Li-ion battery, and images are stored on SD cards plus 45MB of built-in memory

Nikon Coolpix S600 Camera Review

 

There's a lot to like about the S600, but it is not perfect. The small size is a big plus. You will get good color and out-of-the-box usability. You can take as much control as you like. Image quality is excellent and the camera also offers a large...

Review: Nikon Coolpix S600 — It's Not About The Megapixels

 

I think every family must have a hobby which all (or at least most) members of the family enjoy.  Such common interests are what tie them together (and gives you something to talk about at family picnics).  For my family, growing up, that common...
