Summary: With an emphasis on fast start-up and response times, the Nikon Coolpix S620 is one of the higher-end models of the Coolpix line of digital cameras. In this review, we’ll take a look at the S620’s features and capabilities.
Summary: During the last years of his life Magnum pro Henri Cartier-Bresson replaced his venerable Leica rangefinder with an ultracompact Contax T. Like the Contax T, the ultracompact Coolpix S620 does a remarkably good job with some of the things its predecessors were famous for – plus it's tough enough to go just about anywhere.
Pros: Wide angle zoom, Tough, Reasonably priced
Cons: Noisy images, Poor in low light, Inconsistent results
Summary: Being as digital cameras are almost universally great these days, gazing over a display case at a camera store can be a dazzling experience. What Nikon's cameras bring to the table isn't a revolutionary array of new technology, but rather a nice mix of form and function. Nikon cameras are edgy and capable, and come in very attractive bodies -- the COOLPIX S620 is no exception.
Conclusion: 12 megapixels, a 4X optical zoom lens, a large bright 2.7 inch LCD and a nice set of point-and-shoot features – that’s the Nikon Coolpix S620. The camera’s LCD is viewable in low and bright light and the camera has good build quality and ergonomics. A rotary wheel on the rear of the Coolpix S620 assists in navigating menus, changing settings and scrolling through other options.
Pros: Good quality and sharp pictures till ISO 400; ISO 800 usable if you’re desperate, Solid build quality with metal tripod mount and rotary wheel, Sharp and visible LCD display, Easier to use 2009 Nikon menu system and interval timer shooting, Smart Portrait, motion detection and auto scene selection features, Good camera speed and performance, Nice playback mode – Quick Retouch and D-Lighting tools included
Cons: Edge softness and color fringing in photos, No manual controls, Camera skimps on info display in both shooting and playback modes, So-so average movie mode; no HD capability, no zoom allowed and audio sync problems
An ultra-stylish Nikon camera with a 12.2-megapixel sensor and a 0.7-second start-up time.

Excerpt: Il est difficile en ce moment quand on aborde un compact d’une marque de ne pas le confronter à ceux qui dans la même marque lui ressemblent car la stratégie commerciale est devenue de sortir un grand nombre d’appareils très proches : c’est ainsi que nous vous proposons un fiche – test sur les Nikon S220 et S230 , ainsi que sur les Nikon S620 et S630 (les parentés dans les désignations n’auront échappées à personne).
