Nikon CoolPix S5 Reviews

Nikon CoolPix S5 Reviews DC Views has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix S5 and write: “Despite some rather obvious shortcomings such as the tiny controls and reflective LCD screen coupled to the average lens quality, the Nikon S5 would still make a nice addition to the family’s photographic gear as an elegant ladies’ camera, to capture the kids at play or to record snapshots on holiday. Its durable built and solid construction will ensure many years of trouble free use although we feel the price is a bit steep compared to the competition. Despite some of its nifty gadgets though, the serious enthusiast would probably be more tempted to buy a model with a higher level of user control if they intend to take their hobby further.”

Digital Camera Review has added a Nikon Coolpix S5 review where they write: “The Nikon S5 is a very good choice for budget conscious point-and-shooters, busy folks who like trendy techno-toys, casual photographers who want a camera compact enough to take along everywhere they go, and style conscious snap-shooters looking to amaze their friends. The super svelte little Coolpix S5 consistently delivers outstanding picture quality, above average performance, and puts the fun back into taking pictures. It is stylish, very well designed, user friendly, surprisingly versatile, and capable of dependably excellent results.”

Steves Digicams has published a Nikon Coolpix S5 review and write: “The Coolpix S5 has a lot of appeal to those wanting ease of use and good image quality in a very small stylish package. It offers several unique features that distinguish it from the competition, including D-lighting, Red Eye Fix and Best Shot Selector. But it suffers from low flash output and sometimes selects a low shutter speed that results in images blurred by camera shake. At a street price of around $300, The Nikon S5 a fairly good value if you can live with its limited flash range. Want even more? Check out the nearly identical Coolpix S6, for about $100 more it adds Wi-Fi connectivity and a larger 3-inch LCD monitor.”

Trusted Reviews has posted a Nikon Coolpix S5 review and write: “All in all a rather lacklustre performance from what should have been a very impressive camera. Considering the price and Nikon’s enviable reputation, the S5 is something of a disappointment, with fiddly controls, several handling issues and indifferent picture quality. The boasted built-in high technology doesn’t seem to make as much difference as one might hope, and certainly isn’t worth the extra money.”

ephotozine has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix S5 digital camera and write: “The Nikon Coolpix S5 is a quality feature-packed camera that will satisfy anyone looking for an ultra-compact digital camera to take pictures whilst out and about. The only disappointments are the limited ISO sensitivity range, and the amount of noise present at the maximum ISO400 setting. The amount of preset scene modes and features are easy enough for a complete novice to use, but still providing enough control for some more demanding users.”
