Nikon Coolpix S6150 review


Touchscreen control and 7x zoom in a compact camera body

Shar ictures ; Logical control layout ; Good focus tracking ; 7x otical zoom with ED glass and VR ; 720 HD video

Nikon Coolpix S6150 review


Feature-packed and keenly priced, the Nikon Coolpix S6150 compact camera is a great choice for cash-conscious buyers. It's also well suited to those who would rather avoid the more technical side of photography.

Low price ; Well thought-out touch-screen menu ; Sharp images

Stepping on movie exposure correction ; Touch-screen interface should be more responsive

A sturdy workhorse of a camera, the S6150 is keenly priced and packed with great features. It might not be as fun to use as the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX7V, produce images to match the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 or have the head-turning good looks of its...

Nikon COOLPIX S6150 review


The COOLPIX S6150 features an impressive specification at an affordable price, but does it deliver good images? We take a closer look...

Issues with focus accuracy at times, white balance tends to err on the warm side, slightly bulky

HI i'm using this camera for last 2 months macro mode: I have bought this camera for its macro mode which can focus an object 3 cm distance from lens. Yes the lens system has the capability but most of the times the software is not intelligent enough...

Excellent camera at best price


This is an amazing piece from Nikon. Nikon is the leader in the field of camera and this is simply amazing. The battery backup is excellent, with 7x zoom its really amazing. You get a touch screen with this phone which is simply amazing at this price....

Awesome Camera amazing price


Just an awesome camera. A touch screen in below 10k camera with 16 mp 7x zoom and Nikon brand. What else do u want.... Most DSLR does not have touch screen and 7x zoom without adding extra lenses. I think the days of old fashioned cameras are gone........
