Nikon Coolpix S3 Reviews

Nikon Coolpix S3 Reviews DP Review has posted a Canon PowerShot S3 review where they give the digital camera a rating of ‘highly recommended’ and write: “And so to the rating. There was a part of me that felt slightly disappointed that the S3 IS was such a minor upgrade, and that the new high ISO mode added so little. But there are some subtle but important improvements, and the S2 IS was a worthy recipient of its Highly Recommended rating. There are cameras out there that offer slightly better image quality (certainly in terms of sharpness), and I’m pretty convinced that the Panasonic image stabilization system is slightly more effective, but taken as a whole there is nothing out there that offers the feature set, handling and sheer fun factor of the S3 IS, and so it still – just – keeps hold of our top rating.”

Steves Digicams has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix S3, here’s a little of what he wrote: The Nikon Coolpix S3 is a 6-megapixel camera that delivers high performance shooting power and image quality in a sleek and ultra-portable package. Like the Coolpix S1 and S2 before it, the Matte Black Metal-body Nikon Coolpix S3 boasts a 2.5” LCD screen and Nikon’s exclusive feature system, including D-Lighting for fixing dark pictures in the camera. The exclusive Face Priority AF (Auto Focus), for automatic face-finding focus and getting great portraits and In-Camera “Red-Eye Fix” to remove most instances of red-eye in the camera.

With the ability to take up to 190 shots from the included rechargeable Li-ion battery, improved start-up time, and continuous shooting mode, the new Nikon Coolpix S3 allows for more shots to be captured than ever before. This superior engineering is paired with a range of Nikon’s unique in-camera functions and 17 different scene modes that help make a perfect moment into a perfect photo with the click of a button.

Imaging Resource has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix S3 Digital Camera here’s a little of what they think: The Nikon Coolpix S3 packs a lot of features into its small case, including a 6.0-megapixel CCD with 3x zoom lens, and a large 2.5-inch LCD. Its build is solid, with no creaks, and has a pleasant heft. All the controls and features–with the exception of the SD card door–are well-constructed and give the camera a feel of quality. The Nikon Coolpix S3 shares some common limitations with other tiny subcompact models, like limited battery life and a tendency to produce soft corners in its images, but these shortcomings represent more or less universal tradeoffs required by the tiny form factor. The Nikon Coolpix S3 delivers very bright, snappy-looking photos with vibrant, hue-accurate color and good detail for making large prints. The Nikon Coolpix S3’s very bright color will appeal to the majority of consumers, but may be a bit much for those accustomed to the more restrained color of higher-end and professional digital camera models.
