Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"That's right, I have taken perhaps 15 pictures, most in broad daylight, then didn't use the camera for about 5 days and the battery was dead, empty, non-responsive."
_
"The battery door is flimsy, the battery and SD card slot are way too crowded and the cover for the cable connector would not stay closed."
_
"had this camera for several years and it was perfect somehow the acess door to the battery has been sprung and doest close tightly anymore and will occassionaly lose power from the battery."
_
"-Durability- takes drops and keeps on working; battery SD cover locks securely (unlike newer models).I seriously considered Nikons newer models, and budget was not an issue, and still chose this model."
_
"Battery life is decent, but a spare wouldn't be a bad idea."
_
"In all, it's a good little camera, I love the brushed steel kind of look and I would recommend it with three suggestions.1) buy a spare battery2) buy a zip up bag for it (the screen scratches easily)3) stay clear of family weddings"
_
"UPDATE: 8 19 08: No problems, battery life is reasonable."

Image

_
"It's the ideal camera to put your mind to rest that the pics will turn out clear."
_
"Very clear pics & vids."
_
"It took a few pic's to adjust, but it takes great pics!"

Lens

Lens:
"Having a beautifull design does not excuse to have common lens error that I also experienced, nor the poor protection against mechanical shocks."
_
"The screen simply said Lens Error."
_
"It has worked great until today (July 2009): I tried to turn the camera on and received a lens error message and the lens would not come out."
_
"IMO, an unrecoverable failure mode as prevalent as the 'lens error' is prima facie evidence of a fundamental design flaw, but Nikon considers it prima facie evidence of user mishandling."
_
"My S600 became a piece of junk in <3 weeks of routine use after succumbing to the fatal and all-too-common lens error."
_
"The lens jams easily."
_
"-Great lens."
_
"The wide angle lens in this camera has excellent sharpness, consistently sharp from edge to edge, something you would expect from Nikon."
_
"When my kids bent the lens on my P3 I was psyched to order the S600 - the specs looked terrific and it was oh so pocketable."
_
"The wide angle lens, number of pixels, and exciting creative modes were all attractive."

Speed

Speed:
"For its extremely fast startup, the S600 is just painfully slow in between shots, something I thought I could live with but that in practice is annoying to say the least."
_
"I chose this camera as I wanted a camera that could take good quality shots, was fast to start up, easy to use and small enough to carry around easily."
_
"Of course, the S600 isn't as fast, but for the money it is a fabulous little camera."
_
"While other brands give you more options for image parameters especially in the canons, bottom line for me is the excellent image quality and fast startup and autofocus performance of this camera."
_
"Fast start up and good time btwn shots compared to almost others in the 10mp range."
_
"It's very easy to use, and the scroll dial helps speed things along, though its not nearly as smooth as the dial on the S52."
