Nikon Coolpix S600 review

A great camera, except...

Purchased (new) in July 2008, this camera lasted all of one month before a focusing mechanism failure. It's been sitting on a "parts hold" at Nikon USA service for one full month. Meanwhile, the camera, now superceded by the S610, is being closed out at Best Buy for less than $150. I wonder why??


Okay...a camera can break, but Nikon's inability to fix it is completely unacceptable. I would think twice about purchasing any of the Coolpix cameras given my experience.
