With 10MP, 5x zoom and image stabilisation the S560 is the smallest camera in its class

Although it isn't without a couple of niggling faults, the Nikon CoolPIx S560 is a very pleasing camera to use. It has excellent handling, superior build quality, good performance and image quality, and is small, light and robust enough to take...

The S560 is typical of what you can expect from a low-cost digital camera in 2009.

Nikon Coolpix S560

 

The Nikon Coolpix S560 is a shade faster than other digital cameras to turn on and start taking pictures. It fits into most pockets and the 5x optical zoom lens is useful on a camera of this size. Picture quality is good rather than exceptional, but I...

The Coolpix S560 is a fairly standard pocket digital camera. It does have one or two additional features such as the ability to take square photos and time lapse movies. It is mid range when it comes to picture quality. I found very little to dislike...

Nikon CoolPix S560

 

Petite camera with 5x zoom and sensor-shift stabilisation.

Quick shutter speed and shot-to-shot times, nice design, 5x zoom with sensor-shift image stabilisation

Shots are extremely noisy, sharpness lacking

It won't produce fantastic pictures but if you're after a no-fuss camera for the occasional happy snap then maybe the Nikon CoolPix S560 will fit the bill.

Nikon Coolpix S560 Review

 

With the Nikon Coolpix S550 first reaching consumers in February 2008, it was a bit surprising to see the S560 announced in August with a September release date. Surprising unless the S550 was a somewhat stopgap measure to get a Nikon 10 megapixel...

Very good image and color quality, Very good shutter lag, Good AF acquisition times in good light, One of the better lenses I've encountered in this class of camera

No manual controls, Disappointing continuous shooting performance, Awkward memory card removal

I have had this product for over a year and love it! It's battery life is excellent and it is very lightweight. I keep it in my diaper bag at all times to catch those unexpected moments! It turns on pretty quickly and consistently takes great photos!
