Fragile

A. Pecoraro "The world is a dangerous place, ..., Amazon
26 January 2008
  • Summary: The camera takes absolutly fantastic pictures. Unfortunately it is very fragile. We had the camera fall about 1' and hit the floor. After whicht it was no longer functional (reports "Lens Error"). The Nikon repair shop wants $150 to repair it. A bit steep for a $175 camera. We now own a Stylus 790 SW from Olympus. The image quality isn't quite as good, but the camera is supposed to be able to survive a 5' drop.

Fragile LCD --- cute but looks are deceiving

  • Summary: This camera looks like a little tank, and I bought it to replace a Canon Elph that really had been a tank. I had tossed that old camera in briefcases, backpacks, pockets, and it had always been fine. When looking for a new pocketable camera, I was drawn to the S500 because it reminded me of my trusty old Elph. The Nikon had similarly rugged looks. But it fails to live up to the promise.

  • Excerpt: Качество снимков сделанных этим фотоаппаратом сравнимо с «телефонным». Очень рад, что удалось сдать.
  • Pros: Компактный металлический корпус.
  • Cons: Абсолютно неправильная автоматическая установка баланса белого, предустановки ББ тоже плохие, никакая детализация снимков.
