|Nikon Coolpix S600 Camera Review|
Nikon boasts their Coolpix S600 as the camera with the world’s fastest start-up time and the world’s most compact design. We set out to check out these claims as well as to test the capabilities of this small point-and-shoot camera. We will look at the S600 from the view-point of the everyday photographer.
As shown in Figure 1, the Coolpix S600 comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery, battery charger with power cable, A/V and USB interface cables, English and Spanish instruction manuals, quick start guide, and wrist strap. It has one CD entitled “Nikon’s Software Suite for Coolpix” which includes the Nikon Transfer program that allows you to transfer your photos from the camera to a PC or Mac computer, Apple QuickTime 7 for playback of videos, and Panorama Maker for stitching photos together to make panoramic views.

Figure 1: What’s in the box.
The Nikon S600 is enclosed in an all-metal case that is both sturdy and attractive. Although Nikon calls the color slate black, as shown in Figure 2, it is not pure black, actually appears to be more like brushed aluminum. In fact, depending on the lighting, at times the camera has a bronze-look.
At approximately 88.5 x 53 x 22.5 mm (3.5 x 2.1 x 0.9 in), we cannot argue with Nikon about this camera being the world’s most compact design. The slightly rounded edges soften the boxy-look of the camera and allow it to easily slip into a pocket. The size and shape make it fairly easy to grip for those special moments. Yet there is no handgrip area, so those with slippery fingers may want use the included wrist strap for insurance.
