Proven lens shift VR image stabilization for sharper results
Optical lens shift VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps achieve sharper results by applying field proven technology originally developed for Nikon SLR camera lenses to counteract camera shake in lower light or when shooting moving subjects. Active full time, VR also stabilizes images displayed on the 2.7-inch high-resolution LCD monitor for easier framing and more reassured shooting.

ISO 3200 capability provides extended shooting range
Extended light sensitivity range with manual settings up to ISO 3200 adds the power to shoot more effectively in lower lighting conditions, or to capture moving subjects with outstanding clarity. Automatic sensitivity control is also available, freeing you to concentrate on the shot while the camera selects the optimal setting across a range between ISO 100 and ISO 800.

Large 2.7-inch LCD monitor for quality viewing and easier menu operation
Practically defying the COOLPIX S600’s compact body proportions is a high quality 2.7-inch LCD monitor with improved shooting displays and revised icons. Features include approx. 230k-dots of high resolution and a wide 160-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angle.

New Active Child mode for carefree shooting with beautiful results
Active Child mode joins the lineup of 14 different scene modes and three movie modes tuned to produce the best results to match the moment. In Active Child mode, simply frame and select your subject before shooting. The camera then tracks and focuses on that moving subject as you shoot for faster, more reassuring operation with clearer results.

  • Three Unique Nikon Image Innovations - Face-priority AF, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, D-Lighting
  • Active Zoom allows smoother zooming for close-ups
  • New Pastel mode produces bright images with a watercolor effect
  • Macro shooting from as close as 3 cm (1.2 in.)
  • Time zone function for easy setting of multiple locations
  • SDHC card compatibility
  • Approx. 45 MB of internal memory
  • USB connectivity
  • PictBridge support

I'm really like the Nikon digital SLR, this is the first time I use the small digital camera, but the Nikon S600 is make me so surprise, it fast and easy to use, the white balance is perfect, you can shooting a very good photo under very low light, I love it but it just little bit too small for me.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S600 Digital Camera (Black):

I bought this camera to replace a Casio Excilm which only lasted about a month beyond the warranty. I have an older 2.1 mp Nikon Coolpix and it still works great but is big and slow.
The S600 is fast and small. It takes great pictures most of the time. I am just an amatuer but I haven't had great luck with night shots unless I use a tripod or stay close enough for the flash.

This camera has been great! It is the best camera purchase I have ever made. My daughter enjoys the video recording on it. The pic are crisp & clear. The only gripe is it should have came with a case so that I don't scratch the LCD Screen. Very user friendly.

The product produced a lens error within a month of ownership - the day before a 2 week european trip. The camera will not open. How disappointing!!

The great thing about this camera is that it is small enough to fit in my pocket but has "BIG" benefits and results. The photos are sharp and detailed. The zoom is more than adequate for quick closeups

I love NIKON. They come up with very cool electronics, this is by far the best one I've got. It is user friendly... very easy to use, easy to clean and has a strong body, and large LCD screen, you can also crop your pix shot right after you take it.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S600 Digital Camera (Black):

No one at any of the camera stores that I visited was able to address my concern that the S600 does not have a viewfinder. This is a problem with many LCD display cameras because it is almost impossible to see the image and compose a shot in bright sunlight. However, the S600 can increase screen brightness at the touch of a button, allowing use even in bright sunlight. Thought you would like to know.......

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S600 Digital Camera (Black):

Love my new s600. Really thought with all the features I would need to take a class to be able to work the camera but it's actually very user friendly and precise. The best of all worlds: great size for carrying around in pocket, great opt zoom 4x, 10 Megapix, great solid construction. For the price it's a great choice. Really happy so far.
