Nikon Coolpix S620 review
Aug 29, 2009

after five Canon SD ponit & shoot cameras, I decided to give Nikon a try. I didn't have too much expectations to begin with so not a much of disappointment per se.

S620 has good combination of features, lens, size, and price point. It is ok for very casual shootings such as travel.

There are several short comings that users should be aware:

(1) this is a VERY slow camera --- start up, focusing, and image processing. At times I couldn't use it at all because of the waiting. The slow focusing renders MANY blurry photos.

(2) images are VERY noisy in low light. I normally set ISO at "auto" and most night shoots came with ISO around 300/400. They are very soft and noise.

Conclusion, after this interesting 'adventure', I am switching back to Canon for P&S.

Problems:

no problems.

It has a wired "feature" that allows you to take photo and focus is NOT locked! So you can guarantee out-of-focus images at all times.
