Editor's Review

The Nikon Coolpix S610 is the non-wireless version of the S610c, and thus is identical in practically every other way. It has the 10 megapixel sensor, the 3-inch LCD, the cutesy "smile mode" that can recognize smiles and will automatically take a photo.

Dont recommend (Patrick Kirk — 06/22/2009)

It has already been in the shop once for autofocus adjustment and the menu wheel was hung up. Now I am having problem with excessive yellowing during the flash times. None of my other friends have this problem with their cameras in the same lighting. Definitely would not recommend. In my opinion, this product was brought out way too early without the bugs being worked out.

Battery Hog. Very Fragile! (Sean — 04/03/2009)

Even with the rechargeable batteries from Nikon (NiMH) if you fully drain them, recharge them per the directions, the VERY best battery life inside the Coolpix line is a day left unused inside the camera. The internal clock/settings (tiny internal) battery sucks the juice out of any Nikon in 12 hours with maybe 10 small JPG's taken. One 15 min AVI drains it total even on lo-PC settings. Contacted Nikon and they told me they know they make crappy batteries and chargers, suggested I go with a large film camera!!! So I use AA's alkaline and toss 2 after every photo-shoot, junk kit, and DO NOT drop or jerk this puppy, it will lock the lens out and give you a lens error message. Wishing I had not spent over $250 on the camera, batteries, chargers, pouch and calbes to hook into the PC using a prog that is a GUI mess sometimes it finds the camera, most times it finds the TWAIN web-cam I have even when I pull the plug.

Best Buy for Price (Jeff — 10/12/2008)

I purchased a Sony Cybershot digital in 2003 and it was a very tough little camera. When it finally bit the dust last month, I purchased a Nikon S610, sorry Sony! There is a world of difference with these two cameras. I am really enjoying the Dlighting it has and also it's Movie capability to Zoom while recording. It is very user friendly right out of the box and everything you need is displayed EASILY on the LARGE display screen. The 10meg quality is astounding. I highly recommed this camera to anyone looking for a really good point and shoot.
