Nikon Coolpix S01 Review

28 January 2013
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S01 is more about form than function, and it commands a hefty premium for its diminutiveness. Priced at Rs 8,950, it costs more than twice entry-level digital camera. However, the latter are more feature rich and take better photos and videos. We aren’t saying you should keep away from this tiny shooter. It’s cute and funky, isn’t it? If style (unique in this case) is of utmost importance, make this camera your pocket buddy right away!

Review: Nikon COOLPIX S01

1 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Camera phones have almost obliterated point-and-shoot cameras with better optics, and bigger megapixel count. However, Nikon seems to be challenging these competitors with the world's smallest COOLPIX camera – the S01. Inside its tiny body, it manages to pack in a 10 mp image sensor with 3x optical zoom. Let's find out if this small camera can come out stronger than its foes.
  • Pros: Extremely portable; Easy to use; Captures 720p movies.
  • Cons: No manual operation; Heats up while shooting video; Unreliable AF; Low-res screen; No memory card slot.

Coolpix S01

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
15 February 2013
  • Conclusion: In der Praxis sind die Einschränkungen des kleinen Modells zu jeder Zeit spürbar, wie aber schneidet die Nikon Coolpix S01 im Labor ab? Als Bildsensor kommt bei der Nikon Coolpix S01 (Technik) ein nur 1/2,9 Zoll großer CCD-Sensor zum Einsatz. Dieser löst 10,0 Megapixel auf und besitzt einen Empfindlichkeitsbereich von ISO 80 bis ISO 1.600. Das bei dieser Sensorgröße und höheren ISO-Werten keine gute Bildqualität erwartet werden kann, ist von vornherein klar.
  • Pros: Bildqualität bei niedrigen ISO-Werten (ISO 100, ISO 200) akzeptabel, Extrem kompaktes Kameragehäuse (kleinste bisher von uns getestete Digitalkamera), 3-fach-Zoom (29-87mm KB-äquivalent) trotz sehr kompaktem Gehäuse, Gut verarbeitetes Kameragehäuse, Sehr leichte Digitalkamera - nur 98 Gramm schwer, Schnelle Einschaltzeit und geringe Auslöseverzögerung, HD Videoaufzeichnung möglich (siehe unsere Beispielvideos), Großer integrierter Speicher (7,3 GByte), Integrierter Blitz
  • Cons: Bildqualität über ISO 200 erwartungsgemäß unterdurchschnittlich, Kein Serienbild-Modus vorhanden, Touchscreenoberfläche des 2,5 Zoll Displays reagiert nicht optimal, Kein optischer Bildstabilisator, Sehr wenige Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, Kein HDMI-Ausgang, Akku nicht wechselbar (muss in der Kamera geladen werden), Kein Speicherkartenslot (dafür 7,3GB interner Speicher - ausreichend für ca. 3.000 Fotos)
