PhotoAxe
12 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Not only does it provide a solid metallic feel and reassuringly firm grip, but the chic contours and classic camera appeal of the most compact digital camera among competing models also makes Nikon Coolpix S500 a desirable pocket point-and-shoot compact camera for travellers.

  • Conclusion: Problems with close up shots and my indoor portrait mean that the Nikon Coolpix S500 falls below the standard of my favourite pocket sized digital cameras. It's a shame because I like this camera overall. Colours are natural and the sharpness of the outdoor photos is above average.
  • Pros: Easy of use - build quality
  • Cons: Indoor shot lacked focus - macro photos - shutter lag
