Extremely small camera, Metal body, Plenty of built-in memory
The Nikon Coolpix S02 is designed to be used when out with friends etc. It's small enough to carry around in your pocket or bag and you'd barely even know it was there. Smart phone users aren't likely to see much of an appeal though as you can't upload to the web straight away - if there was built-in Wi-Fi then it would be a fantastic camera for those who want to upload their pictures onto Facebook before they get home. The camera is made of metal, looks stylish and comes in a number of colours.
Very Good Camera for the price
Overall this camera has lived up to what I expected from it. It is a very good camera for a casual photographer like myself. Awesome optical zoom (I'm amazed by what they can fit into the slim cameras nowadays). It takes amazing pictures. And it does really well in low lit areas.
My only complaints are that you have to charge the battery while it is in the camera, and the WIFI capability drains a lot of power when used.
Lovely little camera to hold and use
There's enough on the camera to help you out in almost any situation with some other stuff to help improve the quality or look of the pictures after you've taken the shot. The Nikon Coolpix S6500 is a much improved camera and one that you should really take a look at.
Wi-Fi connectivity, Easy to use, Tracking AF
With a current street price of around £150 / US$170 / AU$215, the Nikon Coolpix S6500 is good value for money for those photographers who understand the advantages of a compact camera over a smartphone camera.
The Wi-Fi functionality and 12x optical zoom lens make it an ideal companion to take with you on your travels. However, more advanced photographers may be a little frustrated by the lack of manual exposure control.
Available in a good range of colour
If the S6500 is appealing to you because of the 12x optical zoom lens there are many cameras available for less with this amount of zoom. If Wi-Fi is a must have for you, then the S6500 is a good option. There's always going to be a premium to pay for a Wi-Fi enabled compact. It is basic - you can transfer pictures from camera to you iOS or Android phone / tablet or use it as a remote release.
Good performance, Wi-Fi remote control from smartphones
The Nikon COOLPIX S6500 is a good performer as far as the image quality is concerned. The colours are accurate and the photos are fairly detailed. It starts up very fast and is quick at taking successive photos. It has a fairly powerful 12x zoom and image stabilisation that works. Various filters allow you to play around with your creativity. Wi-Fi functionality lets you transfer photos to a smartphone or control the camera from it.
Image quality is great
We had a great time using the Nikon Coolpix L320 during the test. The screen makes the pictures look great on the back which doesn't necessarily mean that they're going to look good at home, but they do from the L320. If you're a travelling photographer that needs a high zoom all-rounder, but you don't have the money to get a high spec model, then the L320 should suit your needs perfectly.
Decent amount of zoom
The Nikon Coolpix L320 is a decent enough camera if you want a model with plenty of optical zoom but have a limited budget. There is some issues with images being blurry in the corners, our review sample had even more blur in the top left hand corner. If you mainly share your images on the web then the quality shouldn't be an issue, particularly as colour reproduction is good.
Fast focus and performance, Excellent viewfinder.
The full-frame Nikon D800 manages to deliver 36 megapixels of resolution, without sacrificing image quality at high ISOs. It only shoots 4 frames per second, but that should be sufficient for event photographers, landscape shooters, and well-heeled enthusiasts.
Solid handling and ergonomics while shooting
The Nikon D800 is a beast of a camera, an extraordinarily high-resolution anachronism dropped into a supposedly post-megapixel world. The 36.3-megapixel sensor of the D800 defines it; it is the camera's greatest asset, making it one of the most flexible, enjoyable cameras we've ever shot with.
In actual use, the Nikon D800 is a fantastic tool that seldom disappoints
The Nikon D700 has been a hot seller ever since it was introduced back in the summer of 2008. It had a great sensor, a robust but relatively lightweight body and a comprehensive feature set, and was sold at a price that many thought was reasonable for all the goodness it offered.
The D800 combines swift operation and well-designed controls with outstanding image quality
The D800 combines swift operation and well-designed controls with outstanding image quality that is particularly impressive at high ISO settings. Expanded video capabilities hold appeal those who need to produce both stills and video while on assignment. The camera's 36MP sensor allows for class-leading resolution in a 35mm format camera...if you're prepared to hold your technique and equipment to the highest standards.
Extensive dynamic range, Large images, Superb AF system
Many see the Canon EOS 5D Mark III as the D800's natural competitor. While the average serious enthusiast is likely to think long and hard about switching manufacturer, professional photographers are less loyal and will go with whichever option works best for them.
Best DSLR: top cameras by price and brand
The D800 will be very attractive to photographers who need a comparatively light camera that is capable of capturing a lot of detail and producing large prints.
Delivers phenomenal image quality at around half the price of Nikon's flagship D4 model
The Nikon D800 is a professional-grade 36.3MP DSLR that delivers phenomenal image quality at around half the price of Nikon's flagship D4 model. Overall, it's a fantastic addition to the Nikon range that easily justifies its £2,600 price tag. Build quality is superb, handling is excellent and despite the huge range of customisation on offer the D800 remains relatively intuitive and easy to use.
Excellent image quality, Extremely high resolution images
To me, this camera is essentially the one I'd been hoping Canon would release for over a year now! Good image size, decent ISO performance, nice video capabilities and at a very reasonable price for the specs, it just happens to be a different manufacturer. What's interesting is that now I own one, I've found that I'm not shooting with the Nikon all the time...
Camera layout is practical and simple to use
A week was all the time it took for us to fall in love with the D800. And we were starting to get butterflies when we first took it out of the box. This is the camera we'd get if money were no object. While the D4 has a lot to offer in terms of speed, the resolution of the D800 is its main selling point, and it really is a game-changer in our view.
Considerably higher resolution than peers
The Nikon D800 has impressive specifications but that is just the beginning. Its 36 MP sensor with ISO 50-25600 sensitivity is capable of shooting at 4 FPS and capturing full 1080p HD. It includes a 51-point autofocus system and all features expected from a professional DSLR, including a large 100% coverage viewfinder and sturdy weatherproof body with dual control-dials.
Cheap and cheerful waterproof camera
The Nikon Coolpix S31 is a great little camera for anyone that hasn't got the slightest clue about what photographic terms such as ISO means, or even cares about what it means. This is a camera that will work for you. It will determine the best shot and all you have to do is point it at something. You can zoom as well if you want to. The zoom is restricted to the size of the tube that the lens resides in.
Good value for money, Good macro performance
The Nikon Coolpix S31 is subtle improvement on the S30 and is one of the cheapest waterproof cameras on the market, so it's ideal for the kids. It's easy to use and image quality is fairly decent, with good colour reproduction meaning they'll look great when shared on Facebook.
It's actually very nice
I've had several Nikon coolpix and am looking at this one today to buy. They are great camera!
To the person who wrote that first review, who complained: "The first thing I noticed was that I could not just hit the play button to view pictures and video, but I had to actually turn on the camera. When you power the camera the lens extends, where in the Canon, you hit the play button and you can view pictures and videos and your lens retracted with the lens cover closed."
Slim, pocketable design
Families looking for an unobtrusive camera to take on holiday will find the Coolpix S5200 more than suitable, as will travellers that aren't going too far out of the way. Travelling round Europe would be perfect for the S5200, so if you plan to do any of those things, or if you fall into that demographic, then you should definitely take a closer look at the Coolpix S5200.
Good range of shooting modes
Ideal for travel, because of its durability and easy charge options, the Nikon Coolpix S5200 performs well in a variety of everyday situations. It would be a good camera to consider if you're looking for an all-rounder that isn't going to break the bank, especially if you want to capture good quality video footage.
Records at up to 10 fps
The headline feature on the S5200 is its built-in Wi-Fi, this allows you to share photos with smartphones and tablets for editing and sharing. You can also use your mobile device for remote shooting. You can also edit pictures on the camera, each time you take a shot you can enter quick effects to enhance your pictures. Other than that, the camera is a fairly standard digital compact, with a 16 megapixel sensor and 5x optical zoom.
Good colour reproduction, Available at a reasonable price
The S3200 is likely to appeal to the casual user who likes to take pictures when out with friends and upload them to Facebook. Pictures have decent colour reproduction but lack detail when viewed full size, so they aren't ideal for large prints. The S3200 is available at a decent price, but at this price range there are plenty of similar cameras, some of which do perform better.
Great Camera, Great Photos & Great Price!
As an experienced DSLR photographer, I needed a small and simple do-all vacation camera that would work for both my wife and me. The Nikon L610 is a superb camera for its size and price and meets our needs perfectly. I suspect it will probably meet the needs of most casual photographers.
Surprisingly good handling
Nikon's latest release for the Coolpix L line is targeted at travelers with a very casual knowledge of photography. Its affordability is one of its greatest assets, but the 14x zoom, HD video recording, and 16 MP sensor certainly boost its value. There's a lot of reasons to look into this camera - it's compact, somewhat versatile, sturdy, and designed for travel but if you really want to capture the Colosseum in all its ornate splendor, and want serious control over how your image turns out,...
Compact body with a decent zoom range
In a market where cameras with 10x and more optical zoom available there needs to something which makes a camera stand out from the competition, whether it be features, image quality or price. Unfortunately there is nothing which we feel does for the L610, everything is average. Highlights include colour reproduction, 1cm minimum focusing distance and full 1080p HD video recording. We much preferred the Nikon Coolpix L310, it has more zoom and is priced nearer the £100 mark.
Don't be fooled by the features
This camera is full of great features but most times that are not ready for "point and shoot".
Zooming while recording video goes throught a blurry path and pictures are not that good. My 7.1MP Canon PowerShot SD1000 takes pictures far better than this Nikon.
This camera doesn't deal very well with light. Scenes with partial light and partial shade are mostly unrecognizable.
Menu options are not clearly and there are no manual settings in the menu, only presets.
Purse sized proportions and cute styling
Nobody is making a claim for the Nikon Coolpix S01 being a serious photographic tool. We're always told a large-ish sensor, large-ish lens and therefore large-ish camera makes for optimum quality images, and none of those are the case here. Nor, despite the glossy metal exterior, would the £120 to £150 price tag indicate that this is much more than a bit of a toy.
No white balance or ISO controls
The Nikon Coolpix S01 is certainly stylish, and its size makes it extremely portable - a pocket camera even when you don't have any pockets.
There's something refreshing about having a basic point-and-shoot camera, a simple creative tool that enables you to focus solely on composition and capturing the moment. Such is the strength of the iPhone and other smartphone cameras.
So while we're willing to overlook the lack of certain commonly used controls, we just can't overlook image quality.
Really tiny body, Good amount of built-in memory
The Nikon Coolpix S01 clearly isn't designed to be the best camera in the world but it is the ideal camera for those who are keen on their tiny gadgets or who want to carry a camera in their tiny handbag etc. Images aren't of a good quality, but they'll look fine if you're sharing them on sites such as Facebook. The Nikon Coolpix S01 will struggle to appeal to those which decent cameras on their smartphones, but we're sure it'll have an appeal to some looking for a small camera.
Extremely small, Good colour reproduction
A true spy gadget, the Nikon Coolpix S01's image quality is better than its size or price might suggest. Until you get one in your hands, it's difficult to imagine quite how small it is. Think of it as a competent, carry-anywhere alternative to a smart phone's built-in camera.
Good build quality, Compact size
Despite its matchbox size, the construction and engineering that have gone into the 10 megapixel, 3x optical zoom Coolpix S01 means that it looks and feels of high quality. This is still a Nikon camera after all and the brand doesn't do throwaway.
The cute-sy design, rounded edges and available colour range (hunt down the mirrored version if you can) suggest to us that the camera is aimed perhaps more at women than men, and younger ones at that.
Reproduction of colours was very good
The Nikon Coolpix S01 is more about form than function, and it commands a hefty premium for its diminutiveness. Priced at Rs 8,950, it costs more than twice entry-level digital camera. However, the latter are more feature rich and take better photos and videos. We aren't saying you should keep away from this tiny shooter. It's cute and funky, isn't it? If style (unique in this case) is of utmost importance, make this camera your pocket buddy right away! Also, it would make a sweet gift.
No manual operation, Heats up while shooting video
When you consider its size and the amount of goodies it packs into a small frame, the Nikon COOLPIX S01 is an average performer. The camera follows the point-and-shoot camera philosophy to the letter. While it is very easy to use for someone who is new to the world of cameras, a more experienced user will feel frustrated due to the lack of manual controls. However, adding wireless connectivity would have helped it compete better against camera phones.
