Nikon Coolpix S570 review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S570 is a solid camera offering at the popular $199.99 price point. Simple and stylish, the camera has a bright, wide-angle lens and 5x zoom helping it standout from the competition; as does its consistently good photo quality below...

Good lens specifications; Smart Portrait System works well; nice design, feature set.

Middle-of-the-road performance; ISO 1,600, 3,200 not worth using.

The Nikon Coolpix S570 is a respectable ultracompact camera, despite average point-and-shoot performance and some high-ISO overpromising.

Nikon Coolpix S570 Review

 

Nikon releases the new Coolpix S570, a 12 megapixel, 5x optical zoom, wide-angle lens with a 35mm equivalent of 28-140mm. Packed in to the S570 is Nikon's 4-way VR image stabilization system, four shooting options including video recording and 17 scene...

The inclusion of the 5x wide angle lens does help put the S570 Coolpix ahead of other compact digital cameras. It means that its application is no longer limited to those random party shots that are the domain of other models, giving you the option to...

Nikon COOLPIX S570

 

The Nikon COOLPIX S570 is a 12 Megapixel compact with a 5x optical zoom lens and a 2.7 inch screen. Launched in August 2009, it's a fairly stylish mid-priced compact with a middle-of-the-road specification. Along with 12 Megapixel stills, the S570...

Nikon COOLPIX S570 12MP Digital Camera Review

 

There are so many compact digital cameras out there, I would have to say they are what most people have.  The reason for this is that they are small, easy to use and can fit in your pocket.  With all of the options for compact digital camera it is...

Solid design ; Easy to use ; Many different shooting modes ; Large clear LCD ; Smooth operation

No HD video ; Door on battery compartment does not auto lock

I have really enjoyed used the Nikon COOLPIX S570.  I think the thing for me that really sets it apart from other compact digital camera that I've had is the build quality.  The camera is a little heavier that other cameras and has an all metal design....

Nikon CoolPix S570

 

An easy-to-use Nikon digital camera

Cheap, ideal for the happy snapper

Takes grainy photos with pixel softening

The Nikon Coolpix S570 has a few issues with pixel softening and it takes a while to render images on the LCD screen, but it is cheap and easy to use -- it's great for a social snapper.

Nikon Coolpix S570 compact camera

 

The Coolpix S570 arrived alongside the S640 and provides a simple to use, high-resolution snapper for the masses, but with some problems and some neat automated tricks up its sleeve. And that's the problem here really. A fleet of foot snapper this is...

Good image quality at low sensitivities, good design and simple to use, menu system

Sluggish performance overall, particularly focusing, intrusive high ISO image noise

And that's the problem here really. A fleet of foot snapper this is not, focus is slow and not always able to key on your subjects, be they backlit, normally lit or otherwise. In the darker situations you're likely to use the camera (parties, nights...

Nikon COOLPIX S570

 

The Nikon COOLPIX S570 has nothing to write home about for its looks. With the dimensions of 92 x 56.5 x 21.5 mm and at 120g (without the battery), the S570 is definitely compact. But somehow, I was not too pleased with the looks of the COOLPIX S570....
