PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S630 is a good choice for minimalists who want a compact camera with a powerful optical zoom, but photographers looking for the basics may be disappointed by the lacking feature set.
  • Pros: Fast 7x optical zoom lens. Solid wide-angle image quality. Comfortable, ergonomic design. Negligible shutter lag. Low noise at high ISOs (up to ISO 800).
  • Cons: Images are soft and color fringing occurs when zoomed in. Sluggish face detection. Underwhelming user interface.

30 May 2009
  • Conclusion: While the Coolpix S630 is a well-designed compact camera with a positively minimal feel about it, it is probably best suited to photography novices who prefer to be able to point-and-shoot regularly and trust that they will receive basic and consistent results across a variety of shooting...

  • Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix S630 ($279) is a compact, inexpensive point-and-shoot camera with a 7X optical zoom lens, image stabilization, and a 2.7" LCD display. There are more than enough compact cameras on the market now, but only a select few pack this much zoom power.

Nikon Coolpix S630 Review

What Digital Camera
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Although it's expensive for a point-and-shoot automatic, the S630 has excellent handling, superb design and build quality, a useful zoom range and very good image quality. It copes with most lighting conditions, and is ideal for holiday snaps and social situations.
  • Pros: Design, build quality, zoom range, image quality
  • Cons: Performance, weak AF lamp

  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S630 is a small camera with a lot of zoom and resolution. There’s optical image stabilization, a really, really nice, ergonomic grip (I can’t stop talking about it because it’s that good) and numerous point-and-shoot features.
  • Pros: Excellent ergonomics; plenty of zoom with optical VR, Very good LCD visibility, Improved menu system versus old Nikon compacts, Smart Portrait, motion detection and auto scene selection features, Decent performance with fast startup and shot-to-shot; fast (but low-res) sports mode
  • Cons: Visible noise at low ISOs, edge softness and color fringing, No manual controls, Lacking a lot of information display in both shooting and playback modes, Below average battery life, Below average movie mode; no zoom allowed and audio sync problems

CNET
2 March 2009
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S630's specs may be mouth-watering, but real-world shooting quickly reveals the limitations of its technology. While the S630 looks nice, its controls are cramped and awkward, making the camera doubly disappointing.
  • Pros: Definition is suprisingly good at low ISOs; 7x optical zoom is good in a camera of this size; sports fans may be tempted by the 11fps shooting.
  • Cons: Average lens quality; picture quality drops off rapidly as the ISO goes up; face-detection modes are muddled and only partially effective; cramped controls.

  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S630 does the job it sets out to do. The extra zoom it offers over other smaller cameras comes in handy and I like the fact the camera is easy to use.
  • Pros: Ease of use - colours - extra zoom for small size
  • Cons: Zoom has small number of steps - shutter lag for multiple shots

A 12-megapixel Nikon digital camera with an 11 frames-per-second continuous shooting mode and a 7x optical zoom.

Good Gear Guide.au
30 April 2010
  • Summary: The CoolPix S630 isn't one of Nikon's best digital cameras. With sub-par image quality and an unconventional shape, it fails to be anything other than halfway decent. Still, if you're in need of a powerful optical zoom and a versatile continuous shooting mode, this camera will get the job done.
  • Pros: 7x optical zoom, sturdy, 11 frames-per-second burst mode
  • Cons: Lens isn't wide enough, images are somewhat soft, scroll wheel and camera shape take some getting used to
