Nikon's Coolpix line of consumer digicams has always been well-received, appreciated for their image quality and ease of use.
The Coolpix 5600 continues that trend, offering a 5.1-megapixel CCD and nice range of preset scene modes. The Nikon Coolpix 5600 would be a good choice for anyone who wants an easy to use camera that delivers good-looking pictures with pleasing color and plenty of resolution. For those willing to delve just slightly deeper than "just pushing the button," its extensive scene modes and unique framing-assist options greatly extend the camera's capabilities, making it easy to bring back good-looking shots of what might otherwise be difficult subjects.
All in all, a good choice for the point & shoot user looking for an easy to use, compact digicam with a surprising range of capabilities. As many strong points as it has though, I didn't feel that the Nikon 5600 quite made it to "Dave's Picks" status, although there are Nikon cameras positioned on either side of it price-wise that I think do earn that honor. Read my review of the Nikon Coolpix 5600 for all the details!
