Default Nikon COOLPIX S640

Anyone have or heard any pros & cons on the coolpix S640 ?
I'm looking at getting a digital camera as a Xmas gift. Here in Canada it retails for $300 so Iím a little skeptic to jump on one.

Hi there, Breye-

Welcome to the Forum. Thanks for dropping by.

Unfortunately, for 2009, the Nikon point and shoot cameras have been like luke warm coffee. There is not much to distinguish them. The S-640 has lots of zoom and does fair well in a well lighted environment. However, when the light level falls, the Nikon S-640 struggles to achieve focus. At the Canadian price, I would be having second thoughts.

A camera about the same size, and on which Steve has just completed a thorough review, is the Fuji F-70EXR camera, that could be a possibility for you.

Have a great day.
