Nikon Coolpix S5

Digital Photography Interface
7 September 2009
  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S5 is the greatly improved predecessor of the S3. It has 6 megapixels, a large and high-resolution 2.5 inch LCD plus some improved functions. I quite like the new styling and "wave design" of the S5, admittedly much better than the S3's design.
  • Pros: Stylish, Affordable, Large high-resolution 2.5 inch LCD, Not many but still useful scene modes, Rotary dial for quick change of settings, Great ISO performance till ISO 200, VGA 30 FPS movie mode, Enhanced playback functions, Good image quality (for an ultra-thin camera)
  • Cons: LCD visibility not excellent, Weak flash, So-so battery life, No manual controls, Buffer clearing not fast, Some soft photos and redeye, Video quality is not good, Bad low light performance (High ISO 400 noise, no image stabilization)

Digital Camera Review
23 April 2006
  • Summary: The “S” for style Nikon Coolpix S5 is a 6 megapixel digital camera with a large 2.5″ LCD screen and a 3X optical zoom. It’s a fashionably thin compact digital camera that is sort of reminiscent of the classy little Contax T film camera. The Contax T (introduced in 1984) was designed by F. A.
  • Pros: 2.5" LCD screen, Rotary jog dial is neat, Excellent image quality
  • Cons: LCD screen is almost useless in bright outdoor light, Below average battery life, The tiny zoom switch is hard to use

  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S5 faces some pretty stiff competition in the slimline six megapixel market. Although I have found little to actually put me off this camera I am finding it difficult to come up with reasons why you should buy it in preference to other digital cameras with similar features.
  • Pros: Help text, Lack of red eye in test shot
  • Cons: Design causes problem with finger over lens, Short flash range
