Nikon Coolpix S6200 (Red)


The Nikon Coolpix S6200 is a perfectly average point-and-shoot camera. It does nothing very well, but it's also not completely without worth. Mostly, its value is tied up in its lens and design. It's barely bigger than a deck of cards, yet has an...

The Nikon Coolpix S6200 packs an ultrawide-angle lens with a 10x zoom into a very small body, but still remains comfortable and easy to use.

The S6200's autofocus and overall shooting performance are mediocre.

The Nikon Coolpix S6200 is not exceptional in any way, but casual snapshooters in need of a pocket-friendly 10x zoom camera should check it out.

Nikon Coolpix S620 Review


Nikon has released several ultra-compact models for 2009, including the S620. The little brother of the Coolpix S630, the S620 combines a stylish exterior that's available in five unique colors (noble purple, jet black, dusty pink, sky blue and rich...

Nikon CoolPix S620 First Impressions Digital Camera Review


The S620 is part of Nikon's Coolpix Style series, which also includes the recently announced S630, S230, and S220 models. The camera has 12-megapixel image capability and a 4x optical zoom all tucked into a slim, sleek design. The camera is also...

The Nikon S620 is definitely an impressive looking camera. It has a fashionable design, comes in a variety of colors, and is very slim and portable. It also feels comfortable in the hand and is well-built for the most part. Of course, that's not what...

Nikon Coolpix S620 Review


The Nikon Coolpix S620 provides a balance of dependably good pictures with little user input and dead simple ease of use.

Wide angle zoom ; Tough ; Well-priced

Noisy images ; Poor in low light ; Inconsistent results

Like most of its contemporaries, the S620 is probably not a good choice for those who like to shoot indoors or in low/dim light, but unlike many of its contemporaries the S620 features a wide-angle lens and the ability to capture stunning macro images.

You'll snap some cool pics at a cool price with this snazzy new number from photography giant Nikon.

Being as digital cameras are almost universally great these days, gazing over a display case at a camera store can be a dazzling experience. What Nikon's cameras bring to the table isn't a revolutionary array of new technology, but rather a nice mix of...

The S620 packs some decent features with a 12 megapixel image sensor, 4x optical zoom Nikkor lens (28mm at its widest), 2.7 inch LCD screen and 45MB of internal memory.

To add to this review, I dropped that camera at Disney, The best thing that could have happen to it. It will be a while before I try another Nikon PS. But the D90 is still going strong and it was a great buy... Well I picked this camera because I...

Only one problem I have had was a piece of lint was stuck in the lens protector and ; was stuck open. Poor image quality

Nikon Coolpix S620


after five Canon SD ponit & shoot cameras, I decided to give Nikon a try. I didn't have too much expectations to begin with so not a much of disappointment per se. S620 has good combination of features, lens, size, and price point. It is ok for very...

no problems ; It has a wired "feature" that allows you to take photo and focus is NOT locked! So you can guarantee out-of-focus images at all times

I will bring this camera back to the store. I bought it to replace a stolen SD870/Ixus 860, but it can't match regarding colour. The colour quality of the S620 is disappointing, and in my opinion the colour quality of skin unacceptable. I used a...

None, except colour quality
