Nikon Coolpix S6500 review

 

Stylish compact with Wi-Fi connectivity

12x optical zoom ; Wi-Fi connectivity ; Easy to use ; Tracking AF ; 1080p video

Exposures a little bright ; Few manual exposure controls ; Images lack fine detail ; Wi-Fi can't be used when battery is low

Although the sleek design of the Nikon Coolpix S6500 may be what causes many to pick it up off the shop shelf, it has many other attractive features. The 12x optical zoom lens works well, focusing quickly and retaining sharpness at its edges. The...

Built-in Wi-Fi, Available in a good range of colour, Good image quality, Fast continuous shooting, Well stitched panoramas

8cm minimum focusing distance not ideal for macro shots, Poor battery life rating, Focus speed is a little sluggish

Nikon adds Wi-Fi to Coolpix S6400, calls it S6500

 

Nikon concentrates on its Nikon 1 system at CES 2013, keeping its point-and-shoot announcements to just one 12x zoom Coolpix.

Nikon Coolpix S6500 Preview

 

For digicams, CES 2013 is all about Wi-Fi connectivity. The funny part, of course, is that you still need a computer or a smart phone to do your sharing, but it's nice to know you no longer have to take your memory card out of the camera, or plug the...

Nikon Coolpix S6500 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S6500 is a wi-fi enabled digital compact camera that has a 16 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and EXPEED C2 processor inside its square frame. It also benefits from a 12x optical zoom, Full HD video, built-in wi-fi, Auto HDR...

When reviewing a new camera, we like to keep in mind the previous model (if applicable), what we expect from the technology it's using, and above all, the cost. The Nikon Coolpix S6500 is priced around £200 and we think that's an ok price for the...

Nikon Coolpix S6500 Review

 

The S9500 is a very compact, no-fuss camera. It has great optics and a build that gives us some reassurance that it can rough it out if need be. The ergonomics may be a hit or miss, with closely placed buttons, but if we can adapt to varying keyboards,...

Compact, Sharp images, Plenty of scene modes to offset lack of PASM mode, Excellent build quality

Barely average video performance, Average battery life, Slow startup time
