Nikon Coolpix S6

Digital Photography Interface
7 September 2009
  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S6 takes all of the features found on the Coolpix S5 (which I've also reviewed) and adds a 3 inch LCD and WiFi. This two-similar-camera release pattern, one with a 3 inch LCD and a smaller LCD variation, seems to be a trend among camera manufacturers. The design here, as on the S5, rocks - I like the wave design and I'm sure you will too. The LCD is large, very sharp and the viewing angle is fairly good but visibility was not the best.
  • Pros: Seriously stylish, Built-in WiFi, Large high-resolution 3 inch LCD, Rotary dial for quick change of settings; implemented well, Great ISO performance even at ISO 400, VGA 30 FPS movie mode, Enhanced playback functions, Good image quality, Larger LCD + WiFi for just an extra $40 - sounds reasonable to me
  • Cons: LCD visibility just average, Weak flash, Below average battery life, No manual controls, No image stabilization, Buffer clearing not fast, overall performance just okay, Some soft photos, redeye and corner softness, Below average video quality

  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S6 is compact and stylish in its metallic silver or black body with chrome accents and S-curve "Wave Design." It is one of the few digital cameras that features built-in Wi-Fi technology for transfer of images from camera to PC. It is super slim at 21mm (0.8in.) and easily slips into a jeans pocket. The Nikon S6 features 6.0MP resolution and users will love the huge 3-in. LCD monitor with a high 230,000 pixels resolution.

  • Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix S6 ($400) packs a lot of features into a slim and stylish package. You'll get a 6 Megapixel CCD, 3X zoom lens, huge 3-inch LCD display, Wi-Fi support, and more -- all in a camera that fits in your smallest pocket. Other features include in-camera redeye reduction, a VGA movie mode, and an enhanced slideshow feature with music and transitions.
  • Pros: Compact and stylish metal body, Built-in 802.11b/g for wireless photo transfer (though see issues below), Huge 3-inch LCD display; screen is visible in low light, Tons of scene modes, In-camera help system, Handy D-Lighting and Best Shot Selector features, Nice movie and slideshow features, Time-lapse photography mode
  • Cons: Lots of vignetting and blurry edges; images a bit soft too; some color problems, Redeye (despite the fancy removal tools), Disappointing night shot performance, Poor low light focusing despite having an AF-assist lamp, Tiny buttons on top of camera; not much room for your thumb on back of camera, Weak flash, No optical viewfinder, Can't e-mail or upload files wirelessly; camera can't be controller wirelessly, Camera dock required for USB or A/V output, No USB 2.0 High...

  • Excerpt: Firstly, I've nothing against Nikon hiring a naked Kate Moss to help promote the S6. Just like Homer Simpson with his can of 'Nuts and Gum', I can't help but think that two of my favourite things are together at last.

  • Summary: : The Nikon Coolpix S6 is a very stylish, slim 6 megapixel digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens and a huge 3" screen on the back. The digital camera is one of few to include Wi-Fi support for wireless transfer of photos. The camera has a lot of features built in that aim to produce a better image, such as Face-priority focus, D-lighting, Red-eye reduction, Blur-warning, etc. However all of this is useless if the lens isn't capable of acquiring a sharp clean image.
  • Pros: Very large 3" screen, Very stylish shiney slim body, Clever, easy to use scroll wheel on the back of the camera, Very good macro mode, Face-priority focus - some people may find this useful, D-lighting - lightens shadow areas, Good value for money, Low purple fringing, Blur warning, Best Shot Selector (BSS) can be useful in avoiding blurry photos
  • Cons: Disappointing image quality, Vignetting in top corners, Soft corners and sides on images, Very small power button, Susceptable to blurry photos when using the full 3x optical zoom would benefit from image stabilisation, Lots of red-eye

  • Summary: It is stylish, and does have some decent features, but the CoolPix S6 really falls down with regards to image quality. There are better deals elsewhere in the compact camera space.
  • Pros: Nice design
  • Cons: Sharpness issues, colour issues, chromatic aberration issues

  • Summary: The "S" in Nikon Coolpix S6 stands for "Style", and this camera certainly delivers on that promise. The Nikon S6 is one of the most distinctive point and shoot compact cameras on the market today, with an overall style that is subtle yet pleasing. The large 3 inch LCD screen is a joy to use, and the rotary wheel on the back of the camera echoes the Apple iPod.
