This camera looks very sleek and stylish, and is the perfect size for slipping into a pocket or handbag for a night out. It is around £60-70 at the moment, which is excellent value for money given the quality of the camera.
It has 5.1 megapixels and a 3x optical zoom, and even has a red-eye reduction feature. It is very easy to operate, and has a big screen on the back where you can view the photo, or the traditional small eye piece for those who like to take photos the old fashioned way.
The controls are really easy to use and there are seven settings for taking photos. These are automatic (where the camera chooses the best settings for the light), portrait, movement, scenery, a set up stage, landscape, and night-time. The zoom is really easy to operate, and there is even an extra zoom, where the pictures sometimes become a little blurry but it does get very close!
I would definitely recommend this camera to someone who wants a camera for nights out and events etc, as it is very compact, allowing it to be packed easily. Probably not one for the serious photographer though.
The COOLPIX 5600 has been designed to make things simple for you and give you greater versatility, without compromising your enjoyment of the moment. The COOLPIX 5600 features 16 handy Scene modes, four of which offer a Scene Assistance function. These user-friendly modes automatically control camera settings, enabling you to achieve high-quality results with subjects that range from sunsets to underwater. The COOLPIX 5600 stands apart from other cameras in its class with its handy ability to automatically improve the quality of recorded shots with the touch of a button. Nikon's exclusive D-Lighting function, for example, can be selected in Playback mode - automatically compensating for insufficient flash or excessive back lighting in order to obtain balanced exposure throughout the frame. Nikon's proprietary Advanced Red-eye Reduction, on the other hand, has the ability to automatically detect and correct red eyes in-camera in most situations.
With a high-quality 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens and 4x digital zoom, the COOLPIX 5600 gives you a high degree of control over the way you compose your shots.
