From the Manufacturer
From the solid feel and comfortable grip of one of the world's smallest compact stainless-steel bodies to its large, easy-access control buttons and 2.7-inch high-resolution LCD monitor, the Coolpix S600 is a joy to carry and to take pictures with.
Coolpix S600 Highlights
The worlds fastest start-up time in its class Optimized for the one of the world's fastest start-up times, the Coolpix S600 frees you to capture special moments as you experience them. The Coolpix S600 has a start-up time within 0.7 seconds and realizes fast AF.
VR image stabilization Nikons optical lens shift VR image stabilization compensates for camera shake to produce clearer, sharper results in lower light or unsteady conditions. Active full time, VR's stabilizing effects also aid in smooth, easy framing and shooting.
ISO 3200 capability Light sensitivity range up to ISO 3200 with manual control or auto control (up to ISO 800) creates new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking photos in lower light conditions, or to capture fast-moving subjects with outstanding clarity.
- 10.0 effective megapixel clarity
- Active Child mode automatically tracks and focuses on the subject when the OK button is pressed
- Pastel mode creates a soft, impressionistic image when enabled before shooting
- Incredible, bright 2.7-inch approx. 230k-dot, wide viewing angle TFT LCD monitor with anti-reflection coating
Coolpix in-camera technologies give you the edge when it comes to taking beautiful pictures more easily and with greater enjoyment. Included are innovative functions that increase shooting opportunities in a broader range of situations, help to optimize images, and add a new dimension of fun to sharing those results.
VR image stabilization Nikon Coolpix cameras offer an array of VR technologies that produce blur-free images when shooting in unsteady conditions or at slower shutter speeds. Selected models are equipped with one of two types of Optical VR, Lens Shift VR, which delivers sharp and steady images effective for shooting and faster framing with the LCD, or Image Sensor Shift VR, which moves the image sensor to accurately compensate for camera shake. Other models offer Electronic VR which applies movement data to image processing to turn blurred images into beautifully clear results.
Better pictures in lower light Selected Coolpix models offer ISO capability beyond the range of conventional digital compacts. An exciting advantage that greatly increases photographic possibilities, high ISO capability delivers excellent exposure in challenging conditions, broadens the scope of possible subjects and allows scenes to be captured beautifully without compromising natural light.
Face-priority AF Available only with Nikon Coolpix cameras, the clever Face-priority AF function helps ensure satisfyingly crisp portraits no matter where the subject is in the shot. By automatically detecting people's faces in the frame, the photographer is free to press the shutter for sharp portraits with focus exactly where it's wanted.
D-Lighting Only Nikon delivers the advantage of D-Lighting, a unique technology with the ability to rescue underexposed images or shots taken with excessive backlight. Accessible in Playback mode, this innovative feature automatically creates a copy of the image, adding light and detail added where necessary, while leaving correctly-exposed areas untouched. As a result, images are significantly improved in a manner that is much more natural looking.
In-camera red-eye fix Coolpix cameras offer refined red-eye reduction capability that surpasses other digital compacts. First, a series of pre-flashes stimulate the subjects pupils, causing them to constrict. The camera then analyzes the captured image for the remaining presence of red eyes, automatically correcting them in-camera before saving the image to memory.

I bought this for my husband who isn't a natural photographer. He needed something that would fit in his chest pocket of his uniform on overseas deployments. The Nikon Coolpix S600 is about the size of a razor cellphone, but just slightly thicker. The buttons seem natural in their places and the features aren't useless tacked on extras like in some cameras. Pretty much anyone can take good pictures with this camera (when the manual is read).
D-lighting in combination with the high ISO function makes pictures that aren't washed out with flash. The background and the foreground are more even toned and subjects don't look like ghosts. The VR (vibration reduction) lens accounts for camera shake and more pictures are likely to come out clearer which is always a good thing in those candid, spur of the moment shots. One thing that I didn't see on this page is the mention of being SDHC capable. SDHC is the latest in SD memory (which memory cards this camera takes) and it basically means that there is a greater storage capacity without loss of quality. The transfer rate is also higher when uploading to a computer. In the end it means more good pictures! I also love the anti-glare coating on the lcd screen so you can see what is on the screen even in bright sunlight.
The only con that I've run across with this is the battery life. Because it is such a tiny little thing, the battery is pretty small. You can get approx 190 shots with it. Of course it is rechargable, but I like to always have a fresh extra one on hand. Get an extra one Nikon EN-EL10, and I suggest using only Nikon components with my cameras. Also, find a slim case that ZIPS to protect it.
I'm still surprised by the outstanding quality of the images and the versatility it provides.
The key points for me:
- Wide angle, 28 mm equivalent (18mm in a digital SLR). Very important to get more in the picture. There are no many compact cameras with this.
- High ISO and the Auto-ISO feature. I took impressive photos indoors, like cafes and restaurants that look great.
- VR. Vibration reduction. Probably the single most important reason for those blur-free pictures I got I think. It just works.
- Uses High capacity/speed memory cards. I bought an SDHC 4GB card, and even with lots of video could not fill it.
- Video: takes great video for a camera this size, and you can zoom in and out also in your video.
The camera is small, compact, and feels very solid. I just carried it during the trip in my pants pockets.
In brief, I love this camera. It is now my first choice camera for my family pictures since then (except for the kids sports).
I bought also an extra Nikon battery, just in case.
Note that the out-of-the-box configuration is not all that great for action shots -- make sure you familiarize yourself with the scene modes already set up by Nikon -- you'll find a huge difference right away!!
The menus are a bit difficult to navigate for newcomers: I had to do some setup for my buddy -- but it's a breeze for those who are familiar with the Nikon systems.
This really is a great little camera that gives surprisingly wonderful shots -- it's hard to classify it as a snapshot digital camera with such high IQ.
Get an extra battery if you don't want to recharge every night -- battery drain is a bit worse than some other cameras of this size.
