The main reason for looking to buy the Coolpix L18 is the fact it is simple and easy to use. Another attraction is the fact you can pick up a camera from a respected brand like Nikon for a relatively low price.
Trusted Reviews has posted a review of the Nikon CoolPix S600. The S600 is a 10 megapixel point and shoot digital camera. It features a 4x optical zoom, Nikon’s VR image stabilization and a sensitivity range up to ISO 3200. Trusted Reviews felt that the image quality was excellent, stating as follows:
The 4x zoom lens performs brilliantly, with good edge-to-edge sharpness that only falls off in the extreme corners of the frame at wide angle. There is visible barrel distortion at wide angle, but it isn’t too severe, and there is no trace of pincushion distortion at the other end of the zoom range.
Overall, the Nikon Coolpix L15 performed well in terms of exposure and color accuracy outdoors. However, detail definition and noise performance were disappointing when the camera needed to raise the ISO setting. Under brighter conditions, the Nikon L15 captured much better detail. You’ll get the best results when shooting in good lighting, but expect higher noise and noise suppression when shooting at lower light levels without the flash.
Nikon has announced two new ultra-compact point and shoot cameras, the Coolpix S52 and S52c. Each features a 9 megapixel sensor and a 3x optical zoom with VR. The S52c adds Wi-Fi capability to instantly email pictures or upload them to Nikon’s Picturetown. For more info on each of these new cameras, see the press release below. [Read more…]
