Nikon CoolPix S550

 

Nikon's new 5x zoom ultra-compact has a lot of strong competition. How does it measure up?

Nikon Coolpix S550 review

 

With its brushed aluminium body and 120g weight, Nikon's S550 is a smart little camera, if lacking in design flair.

Nikon COOLPIX S550

 

A ten MP ultra-compact with good all-round performance at a budget

Overall good performance and satisfactory build and image quality make this a good choice for the price

Nikon Coolpix S550

 

With a smooth blue skin and minimalistic design, the Nikon Coolpix S550 is most certainly a lover, not a fighter.

Nice design; Good colour results; Good overall build quality; Change to menu system

Plastic build for high use tripod mount and battery door

Nikon Coolpix S550

 

The Nikon Coolpix S550 is a 10 megapixel digital camera with a 5x optical zoom lens. The Coolpix S550 is small enough to slip into most pockets. As with other Nikon cameras it is easy to use and has most of the features you would expect to find on a...

Ease of use

Soft focusing on scenic shots

This is a decent, pocket sized digital camera. It scores well for ease of use and I really like the brightness and colours of the photos.

Nikon CoolPix S550

 

Simple, no-fuss compact camera

Small and stylish build, 5x optical zoom with vibration reduction

Somewhat soft pictures, noise not well controlled, sluggish performance

A decent but not noteworthy compact camera, the Nikon CoolPix S550 sports a 5x optical zoom with image stabilisation but it is let down a little in the image quality and speed departments.

DigitalCameraRoundup.com - Nikon Coolpix S550

 

When Nikon revealed its Fall 2007 lineup, something was missing: a 10-megapixel camera. The S-Series models jumped from 8 (S510) to 12 megapixel (S700). This oversight has now been addressed with not one but two new 10-megapixel cameras, the S550 and...

No optical anti-blur

There are also two new modes: Smile and Blink Warning. In smile mode, the camera can actually tell a smile and will wait to shoot the picture until it detects one. Blink warning actually displays a warning message when, in the camera's opinion, the...
