Nikon Coolpix S52 review

 

Nikon's 9megapixel knight in shining silver is as slim as its feature list is long. Will it make you snap happy?

This slimline snapper is capable of producing pin sharp images even in extremely low light

It's slim, takes good photos and doesn't have Wi-Fi. What more do you need? - 27/8/08

Identical in many ways to the S52c we reviewed a little while ago but without Wi-Fi connectivity, the Nikon CoolPix S52 is a decent but not outstandin...

Minimal chromatic aberration, stylish design

Extremely slow at times, pictures somewhat grainy

Nikon's CoolPix S52 is a decent and quite stylish digital camera. It looks great and takes fairly good photos, although they have some noise issues and the camera's performance is painfully slow at times.

Nikon Coolpix S52c Review

 

When our Nikon Coolpix S52c review unit rolled in, we were enthused about what new techno-wizardry Nikon had brought to the table with its latest Wi-Fi enabled camera. Sadly, that enthusiasm faded fast when it became clear that our test camera was...

Pleasing, true-to-life images, Wi-Fi as good as ever, Slim form factor, AF performance dramatically improved

Still not always easy to hop on free Wi-Fi, Battery life a challenge, Lots of little lens niggle, Some ominous body squeaks and rattles

Nikon Coolpix S52

 

It looks great and is very easy to use. I'm more than happy with the picture quality. My son was so impressed with it that I've just bought another for his birthday.

None that I've encountered, yet.

ease of use

that you have to turn the camera on & open the lens cover opens when viewing pictures. My previous camera could view images by pressing the play back/view button when the unit was switched off, and the lens cover didn't open.
