Nikon Coolpix 4600 and 5600 Review - DCRP

'The Nikon Coolpix 4600 and 5600 are both decent entry-level cameras that are best suited for outdoor photos. In those situations they take good quality photos with accurate colors and not much noise or purple fringing. Indoor photos are still okay, but taking them can be frustrating due to poor low light focusing and an LCD which doesn't gain up much. Both cameras are totally point-and-shoot, with white balance being the only manual control. They have a ton of scene modes, including unique “Scene Assist” modes which help you frame your photos. Two other cool features are Nikon's D-Lighting digital flash (which works if you don't mind more noise in your photos) and in-camera redeye reduction. The two Coolpixes also offer a help system in their menus, though the help screens could be more helpful.

Camera performance is average in all areas, save for low light focusing and flash recharge times. Both the 4600 and 5600 have the same compact, plastic body, which doesn't feel cheap thankfully. Their LCDs are low resolution, though I didn't find that to be a problem. Battery life is very good on both models when NiMH rechargeable batteries are used.'
