Nikon Coolpix S50c digital camera

 

The latest stylishly curvatious addition to Nikon's WiFi enabled pocket snappers is this, the Coolpix S50c comes with a 7.2-megapixel sensor and a range of simple to use features and functions including face detection AF and a decent 38-114mm (35mm...

Image stabilisation, low ISO image quality, face detection AF

High ISO image noise, no optical viewfinder, stunted Wi-Fi features

There are some issues that tarnish the Coolpix S50c package; AF problems (a common thread on recent Nikon compacts, though not as bad as some recent Coolpix models I’ve reviewed) and the issues over the stunted Wi-Fi functionality are particularly...

Nikon Coolpix S50c

 

People shopping for a point-and-click compact don't usually put Wi-Fi functionality that high on their wish list, but if you're looking for a camera that can beam photos straight to Nikon's community photo site, here it is.

Good LCD, Strong features, Well built

Limited manual controls, No optical viewfinder, Wi-Fi seems a gimmick

We have no qualms in saying this is a good camera, but it's not because of its gimmicky Wi-Fi transfer feature

Nikon S50c review

 

Nikon's team of Wi-Fi snappers has a new member – this aluminium number with top image stabilisation. Step inside for our verdict

Still a great looking camera that's foolproof to use, but Wi-Fi's now only half the feature it was

Nikon Coolpix S50c review

 

Is Wi-Fi image transfer more than just a gimmick?

Good LCD ; Strong features ; Well built

Limited manual controls ; No optical viewfinder ; Wi-Fi seems a gimmick

We have no qualms in saying this is a good camera, but it's not because of its gimmicky Wi-Fi transfer feature

Nikon Coolpix S50c 7.2Mp compact camera

 

The Nikon Coolpix S50c is a compact, 7.2Mp camera.

If they had been more thoughtfully implemented, the Nikon Coolpix S50c's Wi-Fi features might have been enough to compensate for its undistinguished image quality and ease of use. As it is, you're probably better off choosing a more capable shooter and...

Nikon Coolpix S50c review

 

Some things never change. Some other things, such as Nikon's wireless S-series cameras, change a little bit at a time. Nikon's new Coolpix S50c is a whole lot like the S7c that the company offered last year. It boasts a 7.2-megapixel CCD imaging...

Nice click-wheel; sleek, slim design; supports wireless 802.11b/g photo e-mail via T-Mobile hot spots and private access points; optical image stabilization.

The lack of a built-in browser prevents you from being able to access most free public Wi-Fi access points.

While it takes good pictures and it's nice to be able to access private Wi-Fi access points, the lack of a browser keeps this camera from rising to the next level.

Nikon COOLPIX S50c

 

Full of features, but a touch slow for our liking

The image quality is excellent in this pocketable slim model, but the camera's sluggish handling lets the side down
