Nikon Coolpix S51 8Mp digital camera

4 January 2008
  • Summary: If you can put up with an amazingly slow camera that you will need to recharge after each use, then the resulting pics are fine, well lit and sharp. Just make sure you don't try and snap any children, pets or anything with an attention span shorter than an average lifetime. And even then, there are still much better cameras than the Nikon Coolpix S51, at cheaper prices.

Review: Nikon Coolpix S51

15 December 2007
  • Excerpt: With the holidays just around the corner, it's always great to know that you can depend on a camera for capturing those fun moments that you never want to forget. It's the sort of thing that you can just get out and when you aim it someone, it doesn't matter whether you get that "if you take my picture, I swear I'll kill you" frown or the "wait! no! don't take my picture!" laugh.

  • Conclusion: Ottima fotocamera compatta, la Nikon COOLPIX S51 si distingue, soprattutto, per un corpo ultrapiatto, per un sensore da 8 MP e per la connettività Wi-Fi, che consente di collegarsi a Internet e inviare le foto ai blog. Altre caratteristiche interessanti sono lo stabilizzatore di immagine, il nuovo processore EXPEED, la confezione d’acquisto abbondante. Tra le note negative la batteria che dura troppo poco e, come al solito, la memoria.
  • Pros: Stabilizzatore Immagini; Sensore da 8,1 MP
  • Cons: Memoria in dotazione scarsa
