Nikon Coolpix S6 review

 

Nikon unveils another supermodel-slim compact

Photos are crisp, bright and colourful ; Innovative 'rotary multi-selector'

Small 3x zoom

The S6 offers a huge amount for the casual snapper, it's just a shame the lens doesn't quite match

Nikon Coolpix S6

 

The Coolpix S6 is a good-looking product – and a price tag of just £234 for a pocket-size, 6Mp (megapixel), Wi-Fi-equipped camera is even more attractive.

Stylish and equipped with Wi-Fi features, the S6 is a very decent camera. The display and selector dial are nice additions, although more contrast and saturation controls would have been welcome.

Nikon Coolpix S6 Wi-Fi Review

 

The Nikon S6 features 6.0MP resolution and users will love the huge 3-in. LCD monitor with a high 230,000 pixels resolution. The 3x optical high-quality Zoom-Nikkor ED lens gives a 35mm equivalent of 35-105mm with all lens movement inside the body.

Review: Nikon Coolpix S6

 

Nikon's Wi-Fi enabled digital cameras reach their second generation with the S6.

The S6 has done away with an optical viewfinder entirely and instead opted for a mammoth 3? LCD digital viewfinder.

While Nikon's Coolpix generally offers above average picture quality, this is held back by what can only be described as an over-zealous flash.

It is stylish, and does have some decent features, but the CoolPix S6 really falls down with regards to image quality. There are better deals elsewhere in the compact camera space.

Coolpix S6 Digital Camera

 

Nikon's Coolpix S6 presents an attractive package, in more ways than just its appearance. The price tag ($350 as of 6/15/06) is seductive for a pocket-size, 6.0-megapixel, Wi-Fi-equipped camera. And you have to love the roomy, 3-inch LCD: Its...
