Nikon Coolpix S620 review

I will bring this camera back to the store. I bought it to replace a stolen SD870/Ixus 860, but it can't match regarding colour. The colour quality of the S620 is disappointing, and in my opinion the colour quality of skin unacceptable. I used a Coolpix 3200 (3 mega pixels, my son has it now) which has, hands down, better image quality. Sometime more mega pixels is worse!

Pros:

The controls and menus are good, e.g. always direct control over exposure compensation.
Start up time is very, very short!

Used for 6 days: people, nature, textile crafts, snapshots.

Used before:
Coolpix 990 - Powershot A80 - Coolpix 3200 - Finepix 9000 - Ixus 860 / SD 870 - D50

Problems:

None, except colour quality
