Excellent design; 7x optical zoom in a compact body; ISO range limiter; good photo quality up to ISO 400.
Slow performance; photos can look over-processed, soft.
The Nikon Coolpix S630 puts a little extra zoom in your pocket, but you might not find the high-resolution photos it shoots out pleasurable.

I purchased a Nikon Coolpix S630 two months ago, just before I went to Europe. After 1100 pictures of mountain tops, boat rides, dark rooms and action shots, I am done testing it and am very pleased. For years I wanted a hassle-free camera with a high amount of optical zoom yet small in size, shoots well without a lot of light and a number of other features. I hoped to spend less money but was afraid a cheaper camera would frustrate me due to lack of features, poor quality or confusing operation. The S630 gives me all I want in a camera for a fair price.
My cousin was a professional photographer and he is impressed with how well this camera performs. Closeups of flowers are spectacular. Pictures displayed on a 42" TV have great resolution and color accuracy. Pictures in poorly lit rooms come out with amazing clarity. Video and audio quality also are outstanding.
Reading reviews critical of this camera made me a little nervous about deciding to buy this camera but I am glad that I figured out they are overly critical except for the zoom speed. The zoom motor is too fast and you often overshoot where you want it to stop. All too often it will not stop where you want it to and you have to walk forward or backward to frame the shot. No camera will always produce a perfect shot on the automatic setting. Photography is a learned skill. The large screen lets you see if the shot did not come out right. You learn and try one of the other settings available. Battery life was roughly 125 pics. Time between pics is a little slow, but ok.
Pros: Quality pictures, video and audio; 7x optical zoom in a small body; logical hassle-free operation; low light pics are outstanding; has many nice features (too many to list here).
Cons: 1) Zoom speed as described above. 2) The Nikon S630 requires a special battery so you need to pay about $30 more for a spare battery that you need to keep charged at all times. 3) The software included has no editing capability just viewing and transferring.
Great value for the price. You get a 7x zoom (37 - 260mm) and 12 megapixels in a very small package that fits easily in a shirt pocket or a small purse. That means you can carry it with you on the many occasions when an SLR is just too big for convenience. It also goes up to 6400 ISO for good low light performance. For really long shots at the 7x setting you'll still have a 6 megapixel image if you crop out half after you download the image, and the effective result is a 14x (520mm telephoto) picture that's virtually grainless in an 8" x 10" print.
It has a very decent array of features, but not all the whistles and bells of the high end SLRs. The worst fault is that the zoom is a little fast, so its sometimes hard to get the exact framing you want. Still, there's nothing in it's size/price category with a more powerful zoom or more megapixels, and no reason you can't take it with you most everywhere you go.
I use this camera as my "take everywhere" play camera. The features greatly outweigh the cost. The response time of the camera is great. Very little hesitation and lull before taking the shot. The many settings are very easy to use. The macro settings have not been matched by any other point and shoot I have ever used. The battery/SD card compartment is better than previous P&S models I have owned (some are so delicate that the tabs or
"doors" break off in a short period of time). The large screen makes it easy to line up the exact photo you want to take, and the stabilization features combined with the Nikkor lens help keep the image crisp and clear. The 7x optical zoom is very nice - so much better than grainy digital zooms many P&S cameras have instead. The battery life is really good too, and charges up quickly in the included charger.
I cannot think of anything I do not like about this unit. This is my second S630 (the first I damaged myself, so its demise was not the cameras fault). I think this camera is the best point and shoot out there.
