Nikon Coolpix S630

Digital Photography Interface
23 September 2013
  • 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. The camera has decent performance (some areas are above average) and very good LCD visibility. However, battery life and movie mode on the Coolpix S630 are not so great.
  • 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

  • Excerpt: Nikon's garnered quite a reputation for manufacturing commendable ultra compacts, and it continues to impress with the Nikon S630. This sexy devil comes with a gray metallic finish shell with an impressive raw metal polish. The mix of dull and shiny metal parts on the camera's body adds aesthetic appeal by playing with both – contrasting textures as well as contrasting shades of gray.

  • 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 situations.

  • 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. Other notable features include scene auto selection, a sports continuous mode that shoots at 11 fps (at 3 Megapixel), and enhanced face, smile, and blink detection.

  • Pros: Ease of use - colours - extra zoom for small size
  • Cons: Zoom has small number of steps - shutter lag for multiple shots
