Good optics. High quality images. Small, well made camera.
On/off button is still too close to shutter.
The Nikon Coolpix 5600 is basically the same digital camera as the 5200 model, but updated to take two AA batteries instead of a single rechargeable Li-ion. The battery life is therefore dependent on which brand of batteries you put in it; using Duracell's I got similar battery life to the old model (about 200 pictures - a day's worth of heavy tourism)!
As per the earlier model, this one is small, well made, and takes very high quality pictures. Better still, it's about £50 cheaper than the last model was when it came out.
The internal design may be a year old now, but this is still a nicely made and well behaved little camera, that gives images of good enough quality for any amateur use.
