Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix S60 Digital Camera (Crimson Red):

I have the Canon Digital Rebel XTi but wanted a camera to throw in my purse to have with me at all times. While I liked the idea of the touch screen, it is not as sensitive as it should be. Sometimes I would have to touch the screen two or three times to get the camera set the way I wanted it to be and therefore, I would miss shots. I am a decent photograpgher, but half of my pictures that I took with this camera were blury because I couldn't control the touch screen when I wanted. I'd rather lug my Canon Digital Rebel around than use this. The quality of the pictures was just average. Not impressed at all. I returned it for the Nikon Coolpix P80.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix S60 Digital Camera (Crimson Red):

I bought this product to use for small family gatherings and pictures that I would take in a casual setting. I love that the touch screen navigates you to the pic. scenes easier than toggle buttons. My only problem is getting use to my touch. I find when scrolling pictures I tend to his the zoom more the scroll. I need to get use to it a little more.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix S60 Digital Camera (Crimson Red):

Camera works great for taking pictures of our little one in all of his best (and worst) moments. We love how small & slim it is compared to our last camera. So easy to use. The touch screen is fantastic. Zoom takes some getting used to at first, but now that we've used it a few times, it's great too.

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix S60 Digital Camera (Crimson Red):

I was disappointed from the onset of purchasing this product. It is very hard to use while focusing on the suject. If you want to zoom it is way to hard to manuver with the focus on the screen and not at your fingertips. I have had some very poor quality pictures since the purchase of this camera. My previous point and shoots took much better quality pictures. When trying to set up the setting for lighting that is a joke if you can't recognize the many symbols by memory and you can't change it after you pick it you have to go back to that screen that holds all the symbols because it takes to you to the picture taking mode! For the money and the time this camera is not worth it at all. .I have told several people that have seen it advertised Don't bother![...]

Comments about Nikon Nikon Coolpix S60 Digital Camera (Crimson Red):

I bought the Nikon S60 to have as an on-the-go camera. I primarily shoot with film-based SLRs (slides and black & white), but wanted a convenient digital to carry around when I'm going places I don't want to haul my SLRs to.

I instantly liked this camera - easy to use, easy to setup, very intuitive controls. Great size and just what I was looking for.

I purchased this camera just as it was released to take on vacation. Arrived the day before I left, skimmed the quick start booklet and was ready to capture my vacation photos in 10 minutes. Easy to use, huge screen, love the touch-screen controls. This is the best point and shoot camera I have ever used. Love it. The only thing I was missing was a water proof housing for it. I am sure that will come. thanks nikon!
