I bought the Nikon Coolpix S560 attracted by its 10 Mega pixels and 5x optical zoom lens and found it had a wide range of useful facilities that I had never considered in my purchasing decision. The camera is comfortable to handle; easy to set up and operate through a simple and logical menu. It has a wide range of shooting, playback and editing options. The fifteen scene modes provide a large range of useful options to cover most eventualities. The face priority and smiling face detection facility guarantees good shots of people and warns you when your subject has their eyes closed. The food mode has proved surprisingly useful for close up shots .The automatic adjustment lets you shoot natural looking photos in low light conditions. The quality of the pictures is first class aided by the vibration reduction feature and with 10 Mega pixels the photos can be cropped to produce excellent results. The high quality movie facility is limited only by the space on your memory card and direct playback to your TV is another useful feature. An excellent, easy to use, value for money camera.
The Coolpix S60 offers intuitive fingertip shooting control and a variety of exciting playback options, all seamlessly integrated into an innovative touch screen interface. With a newly developed 3.5-inch LCD monitor featuring a 16:9 widescreen display, the only physical button to press is the shutter - and even that isn't needed when using handy features such as the self-timer or the Smile Timer. The optimized interface offers a choice of three different HOME screens with large icons that make fingertip selection of operating modes and controls easy and accurate. Even the 5x zoom can be controlled via icons on the touch screen. Advanced features include the ability to lock autofocus and exposure on a subject by simply touching the corresponding location on the screen. The camera then follows the subject's movement to ensure sharp focus when the shutter is pressed. And, when used in conjunction with the Portrait One-touch Zoom function available in Portrait or Night Portrait scene modes, one more touch of the screen commands the camera to automatically zoom in and capture the subject with just the right amount of framing.
