    This is my first product review ever. I had to warn people to stay clear of this camera. I am an advanced amateur, using a Nikon D50 for hobby and family shots. I have actually won some awards and a magazine cover with my Nikon so I love it and was loyal to the brand. My son bought me this S570 for Christmas. Two days later he returned it for me.

    I wanted a small camera to stick in my purse, my large SLR being inconveinent to lug around constantly. I know I can’t expect the same quality as my D50, but out of the approximately 2 dozen photos I shot inside, I will keep probably 4. The quality of these photos,(I tried several settings) was worse than I got from disposable film cameras. They were just not sharp, the closer up photos were washed out, the wide angle just would not focus for me and the flash wouldn’t come on in a large room lit with florescent lights, resulting in a grainy, unfocused photo. Maybe I could have played around with the settings a bit more, but I just feel for the 200 he payed I could get a camera that would be a literal point and shoot.

    I did some research and decided to try the Panasonic DMC-ZS3 that is a good price on Amazon at $240. If anyone cares, I’ll review that when it comes. Save your money on this S570.

    I am looking for a camera for less than $200. I am looking for either a Canon SD1200 or a Nikon S640. No body sells the S640. So, I pick the S570 instead. My main reason for the SD1200 is the Optical Stabilizer. Main reason for the S570 is the f2.7 lens. I finally pick the S570 instead of the SD1200.

    The S570 is the size of a deck of cards. It is very small. So, it is difficult to hold steady. The buttons are well placed and easy to use though. There are 4 options: Auto, Scene, Smile, and Movie. There is no option to adjust the shutter speed or anything whatsoever. I can only set the maximum ISO to either “80-400″ or “80-800″. That is the only option. If I need a longer shutter speed, I need to pick maybe one of the night scene instead. The S570 doesn’t have optical stabilizer either. So, I am not expecting any steady shot. It does have 4-way VR. It increases shutter speed and the ISO automatically.

    The S570 has a bigger lens (f2.7). So, it rarely fires the flash. Most of the time, it opens wide the lens (f2.7) and let the 4-way VR kick in to compensate the lighting and movement. The color may be a little grainy but the picture is a little bit sharper. You can turn off 4-way VR. If it is off, it doesn’t increase the ISO. So, the picture will be fuzzy if thing is moving.

    I try the Smile option. It looks for faces in the picture. After it focuses on the faces, it takes the picture automatically. I don’t have to press the button. This is pretty cool. However, it doesn’t work all the time. People need to have a big smile like a pug before the camera can see you smiling.

    The S570 has a wide angle lens. So, everything looks far far away even the guy is close. So, I need to either zoom in or stand closer… in your face kinda closer. This is so strange standing so close to the guy to take the picture.

    My S570 comes with a standard Sandisk 2 gig SD card and a small case. Start up time is very fast but shot to shot is kinda slow because of the size of the picture. I set the S570 to the highest quality (12M with 1/4 compression). It takes 2 to 3 seconds to save the picture to the SD card (about 5meg). If I set the S570 to lower quality, it saves the picture much faster. The S570 also doesn’t get a good focus all the time. I always need to try couple time before the S570 can focus indoor or outdoor.

    The case that comes with my camera doesn’t use a clip or zipper to close the flap. The flap use a pretty strong magnet. Many reviews say they have lens error or whatever. I guess this is what happens. The magnet may damage the camera. So, I take out the magnet first thing. Hope this help.

    The camera is cheap and nothing special. I give the S570 3 stars.

    This camera looks cool but, it takes too long to focus between shots.

    There is a 3 to 5 second pause between each picture that is taken. Once a picture is taken, it initially appears out of focus…requiring you to view the pic in playback mode to see it in focus. So you can’t tell if you need to retake the picture until several seconds later.

    These ‘few seconds’ add up and can prove to be quite time consuming and annoying, especially for the people who are in the picture and are instructed to hold their poses like frozen snowmen until you can confirm that the shot was good or not. In the meantime, bright, wide, happy smiling faces are reduced to impatient grins as they wait for you and your camera to ‘get your act together’. So capturing true “Kodak Moments” is almost impossible with this camera.

    Also, the camera has to re-focus the picture during playback mode so you have to wait 2- 3 seconds to view each photo. Reluctantly, I plan to return this camera and am dreading having to start my research on a new model all over again.

    Then once the photos were downloaded to my computer I was amazed at how many “adjustments” needed to be done for color corrections, sharpness, color contrasts, lighting and etc. Practically none of the photos were okay “AS IS”… they all required some tweaking. That’s too much work to get a simple photo.

    I bought the Nikon Coolpix S570 on May 5, 2010. I read the worst reviews first then the very best reviews. I hesitated about purchasing this model because of the few bad reviews but I decided to go with the Nikon because the five-star reviews were more convincing and furthermore the camera had all the features I wanted at the right price. My first digital camera was a Canon Sureshot and I was so satistied with it that I wanted a another Canon. I have to admit that my the only problem with the Canon was the rechargeable batteries do not work! So having learned my lesson I realized I needed a digital camera with its own ion-rechargeable battery and charger. I have been reviewing the digital cameras for over a year now, and the Canons were just always out of my budget. So when I saw the Nikons were on-sale I started to review the various models. I was impressed by the look of the box it came in; to me, it had quality written all over it. I was not disappointed. I read the complete manual before using my new camera. I am very pleased with this Nikon model because: 1. The manual is very user-friendly 2. The camera is compact with a large display that has large writings, and the buttons are not too small. 3. Very Easy to use. 4. It has lots of neat features. 5. It takes great pictures. 6. It took the photo without any delays. 7. The ion-battery recharged in 30mins when the manual said it would recharge within 1hr. 8. It came with a video cable that enables me to view the videos on the TV. 9. I can download the photo to my laptop or download to a printer and print the photos. 10. The Software installed successfully. 11. The Softwares are user-friendly. I took photos right away and downloaded without any problems. I will be taking some outdoor photos next week and I am sure I will be pleased with all the photos. It’s a great digital camera and I highly recommend it.

    I’ve had a Nikon S510 a while back which I loved, and the Nikon S570 is even better. I like vivid colors, and when set to “vivid”, the Nikon S570 produces photos with beautiful vivid colors and excellent contrast. The wide angle lens has great edge to edge sharpness. The Nikon S570 performs well, probably not the fastest (shutter lag and start-up time), but good nonetheless. The only thing that it’s really slow in is the wait time between shots, which seems to be an eternity. I’ve missed a few shots waiting for the camera to be ready for the next shot. Otherwise, I really love this camera. It’s small and light enough to fit in you pocket, and it takes great pictures. And for it’s price, it’s definitely a great buy.

    We purchased this camera due to its size (dimensions) and 5x optical zoom, and price range. We’ve only used this camera one day, but have discovered that even in auto mode, it works quite well. The photos generated by this camera have been crisp and clear, even subjects in motion were captured with little or no blur (digital zooming revealed some blurring). This is my first Nikon, so I haven’t been comfortable with the navigating the menu; however, when working in auto the camera seemed to perform well enough for a Point and Shoot experience.

    The video performance has been the most impressive feature thus far. The image quality has been outstanding – motion is clean and not jerky and images are crisp not pixelated.

    I took this camera to my niece’s birthday party and put the camera in my pocket while I chased my daughter on, over, and through inflated jumper, slides, and obstacle courses and didn’t feel like I had a brick in my pants. In fact there were a few times, I had forgotten I even had a camera with me. Gotta love the small compact size.

    This one is a keeper.

    I am a photographer. I like having a point and shoot so I don’t miss those little moments when I am not lugging my D300, flash and accessories. The S570 offers 3200 ISO, wide angle, macro and many other settings that make this a versatile camera that can travel with me anywhere. Someone that is looking for great features at a low price can not go wrong with this Nikon.

    I did quite a bit of research before buying this camera, and I am quite pleased. I am a pro photographer who uses the Nikon SLR system, and was looking for a point and shoot. Although I am a loyal Nikon shooter, I realize that Nikon has not been the leader in the point and shoot market. However, this model has a great feel to it, sturdy and solid. It is small enough to take anywhere, and makes amazing photos,I love it. I think that a lot of the negative hype about this camera is from people who do not read the user’s manual, and who do not have any skills in the area of photography. In my experience with this camera, it performs exactly as I expect it to- because I read the manual! Trust me, it’s an awesome little camera.

    I made this purchase for my wife for christmas .

    Although I bought this some time ago she just opened it for Christmas and she LOVES it!

    very easy to use and the quality is great..very light very easy no problems what so ever .

    Her hobby is photography so she finds it very easy to use and she knows her numbers and what to set it on so it is one nice little camera for when she dont want to lug around her bigger one. we have read reviews for this camera and we do not find anything wrong with it ..some say it is slow between shots .. My wife does not at all find this camera slow between shots..no way

    Some also say its blurry when you playback the photos.. Ours is not blurry at all and I played my photos back on my 32 inch HD TV..they come out clear as a bell.

    But some people DO have that problem..here is a solution that my wife says to do….

    DO NOT in any way ROTATE your photos from the camera..this could damage the memory chip you have so what we always do is Hook the camera up to the computer then load the shots on to that ..then you can rotate all you want..you will see the difference .

    I hope that helps people.

    Also..we have no need to use the software for it either.. we just plug the camera to the computer and take my shots off the camera that way (just open the file) ..then I use my own photo sofware .. and Again not a problem at all

    The Video is also cute on it..I wouldnt film “important things” such as one time events..but just for quick things..then its good .but thats not what my wife wants to use it for. so we dont mind it .

    All in all we are very very happy with this camera.

    Thank you

    I was expecting the S570 to be the best purchase ever. I used to have an s210 that took some great pictures. The one think I loved about it was it RARELY ever took a bad picture. The s570 I thought would add on the already existing greatness of the s210. While it does take good pictures, every now and then I get shaky/blurry pictures.

    The biggest complain would be that for a point and shoot it does not automatically pick the best mode to take a picture in. Even when I do pick modes, it doesn’t work the best. Maybe I need to get better at picking the right modes for a picture but lets just say with the amount I’ve tried, its not obvious exactly what mode you need t be shooting in. The image stabilization isn’t very great in it. The Camera itself was a little bigger than I thought it would be, but it looks great though.

    The wide angle picture is great, you can capture way more with this up close than compared to other cameras (my reference was a Cannon sd1200. Although, I had to take the picture twice to get a good shot. The battery life is very good. I had it last about 2 days with frequent use. the 5 x zoom and the extra MP are definitely a bonus for the price. Maybe my expectations were just too high. I wasn’t very thrilled with it.
