I bought this product at the beginning of the year as my god son dropped my old Nikon L19 and broke it. I liked the Nikon range as they are very easy to use and have superb picture quality. The S610 lives up to this expectation. Easy to use, for both taking pictures and uploading them. It comes with a cable to connect it to the television and PC which are both straight forward to use. Very good picture quality with many different modes for all sort of occasions and settings. I was especially impressed with the video camera as it is very clear, even when the light is not that brilliant. Playback with sound is also a good feature. It's quite a small and compact camera which means it will fit in most bags, or pockets with ease. I don't go many places without mine and with a fully charged battery it will last a good few hours, unlike the old AA batteries. Highly recommended camera for somebody who is not a whizz with technology as it is very self explanatory. Very good buy.
I've owned the Nikon ZCoolpix S610 since Christmas 2008, and to be quite frank, it's become one of my essential "handbag" items. As a user of social networking sites such as facebook and myspace, the Coolpix cam provides high quality photo's that are easier to upload onto the computer then ever before.
The easy to use machine means that this really is an item that can be fished out and used within seconds, great for those once-in-a-lifetime shots! Much like the other Nikon cameras, the mechanisms and buttons are easy to understand- I never had to look at the instructions, it can be pretty much turned on and understood.
Out of the settings, the best of all is, although with close competition, the portrait feature- with a steady cam and face recognition device, photos can be snapped at brilliant quality, in seconds, in difficult situations (The strangest for me, whilst diving on a friend in the dark wrapped in a quilt- and yes, the photo looks great!).
Another great feature is the video option, who needs a camcorder with a digital character with this much memory and at such brilliant quality? To illustrate this point, I am in the process of shooting a short film for a university portfolio on mine.
The camera looks attractive and comes in a variety of colours, although I own the burgundy, my personal favourite is the black version. If I have one negative thing to say about the camera, it is that it scratches easily so a case should really be purchased alongside it. All in all, a fantastic bit of equiptment!
tech specs: 3.0 screen (nice big view), optical Vibration Reduction (stabilization), a nominal ISO sensitivity range from 100 to 3200 and a 4x optical zoom lens that provides a 28 to 112mm focal range.
