  • Conclusion: We like the sleek design and the big LCD, but when we zoomed in close, there was too much image distortion for our taste.
  • Pros: Sleek and stylish design. Big 2.5-inch LCD. Nice flash pictures.
  • Cons: Some distortion when using zoom lens. Poorly designed docking station.

  • Conclusion: While the Nikon Coolpix S1 is a great camera when it comes to continuous shooting, still images and scene modes, it lacks "real" manual controls and it's shutter speeds are too slow/fast.
  • Pros: Stylish and thin camera design, Battery level indicator, Large 2.5 inch LCD, The 4 features in the paragraph above, Lots of scene modes, Camera help, Constant focusing reduces shutter lag
  • Cons: 12 MB internal memory, Weak flash, Lack of manual controls, Very small shutter speed range, Barrel distortion, Above average noise in movies

  • Excerpt: The Coolpix S1 ($379) is Nikon's entry into the ultra-thin camera market. The S1's specs are just like the other cameras in this class: 5 Megapixel CCD, 3X zoom lens, large LCD, and point-and-shoot operation.
  • Pros: Stylish ultra-compact metal body, Large 2.5" LCD (though low light visibility could be better), Tons of scene modes, Nice continuous shooting mode, Useful D-Lighting and Best Shot Selector features, AF-assist lamp (but see issue below), In-camera help system, Optional underwater case
  • Cons: Too much blurring in the corners and around the edges of photos, Redeye a problem, Disappointing movie mode (poor VGA quality, slow frame rate), Weak flash, Despite having AF-assist lamp, low light focusing wasn't great, No optical viewfinder, Camera needs slower shutter speeds (in my opinion, 2 ...

  • Conclusion: There is little to choose between the Nikon Coolpix S1 and the Canon IXUS 50, even when it comes to price. In my opinion these are the two best five megapixel, ultra compact cameras that I have reviewed to date.
  • Pros: Design and style, Overall image quality, Large, bright and clear LCD screen
  • Cons: Indoor portrait

Nikon Coolpix S1 Review

  • Conclusion: Nikon heeft zich met het ontwerp van de Nikon Coolpix S1 in de wereld van design begeven. Het ontwerp is zeer overtuigend en is een regelrechte blikvanger. Dat men daarbij ook oog heeft gehad voor de gebruikersvriendelijkheid en het gebruikersgemak maakt het geheel compleet.
