Pros:nice compact size, large LCD screen, high pixels if u need it, many scene selectors

Cons:too much time in between taking pics, difficulty w/ closeups, red eye

The Bottom Line: Nice sized camera with very good features & quality pictures. A few annoying things but worth the price.


After my kids broke my last dig camera that I loved (Olympus) I had to quickly get another b/c we were leaving for vacation. My hubby decided on the Coolpix S630.
I really like the large 2.7" screen. It is 12 megapixels but I really dont see the need since i just use 4x6 prints but its good for 16x20 prints. The photo quality is excellent. Pics are clear. The zoom is pretty good @ 7x. It has a few color choices like B&W, Sepia, Pastel, vivid, standard & cyanotype. Simple press of a button to see pics already taken. There are 16 scene selectors & a voice recorder. The battery charger takes about 2 hours.

The annoyances I have found so far are:
1. SLOW after taking pic. I cant stand that I have to wait awhile before the camera is ready again & I usually miss some good moments
2. I dont like the way u have to switch from camera to video recorder mode. My other camera was a dial on the front. This one you have to go to the menu & click down to the video. And alot of times I forget Im in that mode & I go to take a pic & it starts recording. Then its a pain in the a** to get it back to camera.
3. It seems to have a mind of its own when u want to take a closeup picture, i.e. for ebay. It doesnt focus right.
4. I seem to get alot of red eye even though I have it on reduction mode

For the price we paid $275 @ Costco we got a good deal which included the case, wrist strap, charger & battery, 2G SD card, free 50 prints, all cables, & CD ROM.
