Summary: Final Thoughts
I have really enjoyed used the Nikon COOLPIX S570. I think the thing for me that really sets it apart from other compact digital camera that I’ve had is the build quality. The camera is a little heavier that other cameras and has an all metal design. This metal design not only looks cool, but also helps protect the camera. The only thing that I did not like about the design of the camera is that the door on the battery compartment does not auto lock.
Pros: – Solid design, – Easy to use, – Many different shooting modes, – Large clear LCD, – Smooth operation
Cons: – No HD video, – Door on battery compartment does not auto lock
Summary: Yes there are some small issues with the camera but I like it a lot. It’s simple to use and it actually takes good pictures. I just wish it would process them faster, and I would like the LCD to be of better quality.
Pros: Decent picture quality, Nicely made camera, Ability to turn of digital zoom, Very good battery life
Cons: Rather slow at processing, No optical viewfinder, LCD screen is fuzzy, Zoom is a bit touchy
Excerpt: The Nikon COOLPIX S570 has nothing to write home about for its looks. With the dimensions of 92 x 56.5 x 21.5 mm and at 120g (without the battery), the S570 is definitely compact. But somehow, I was not too pleased with the looks of the COOLPIX S570. The plastic quality feels a bit cheap and the overall finish of the camera has nothing too appealing about it. The S570 comes in five different colors – black, blue, red, pink and silver.
Excerpt: Nikon releases the new Coolpix S570, a 12 megapixel, 5x optical zoom, wide-angle lens with a 35mm equivalent of 28-140mm. Packed in to the S570 is Nikon's 4-way VR image stabilization system, four shooting options including video recording and 17 scene modes. With the S570, Nikon also introduces Skin Softening to their Smart Portrait system. The S570 is compact and easy to operate, taking sharp vibrant images.
Summary: The Nikon COOLPIX S570 is a 12 Megapixel compact with a 5x optical zoom lens and a 2.7in LCD screen. On the face of it, it's a mid-priced compact with a fairly pedestrian specification.
Though it lacks headline features like optical image stabilisation and HD video recording, the COOLPIX S570 is nonetheless a quality compact with a solid specification.
Pros: Excellent image quality., Capable 5x zoom range with wide angle., Manually assisted focussing., Auto ISO range limit.
Cons: No optical image stabilisation., Ineffective electronic VR., Card can be removed with power on., No HD movie recording.
Summary: The Nikon CoolPix S570 is a 12.1-megapixel, point-and-shoot digital camera with some nifty features. It's ideal for people who wouldn't be comfortable with a more complex model, and for £139 you get a camera that's also stylish.
