Nikon Coolpix P50 Concise Review

 

The Coolpix P50 is Nikon's attempt at a middle-ground camera: it's neither a point-and-shoot-only ultra compact nor a fully-fledged photographers' camera. Instead it's a pocketable digital camera that marries a sensible sensor to a useful lens and...

The Nikon Coolpix P50 is an 8 megapixel compact digital camera with a wide-angle 28-102mm, 3.6x zoom lens, new EXPEED image processing engine and a versatile ISO range of 64-2000. Available in the stylish ...

We had the black-bodied Nikon Coolpix P50 in for testing, which undoubtedly disguises the fact that it's not the skinniest compact around and the fact that construction is plastic in the main I doubt the ...

Classic design, updated performance, great price

 

The Coolpix P50 is Nikon's latest effort to offer an entry-level model into its performance-oriented "P-Series." In reality, the small and handy P50 is somewhere inbetween a performance model and a point & shoot camera. We like the slightly wide 3.6X...

Camera Review: Nikon Coolpix P50

 

Few will argue that Nikon's DSLRs are among the most esteemed digital cameras available; however, the prevailing sentiment among photo enthusiasts is that the compact Nikon digicams often pale in comparison to their bigger siblings. All that's about to...

I think Nikon is getting fed up with all the great press Canon receives in the point & shoot camera market. I also think Nikon is really getting feisty about battling all of the product reviews out there which carefully examine 100% crops of really...

Nikon Coolpix P50

 

In Nikon's performance-oriented "P-Series", the new Coolpix P50 represents the lower end, but fits in with a balanced combination of versatility, advanced functions, great picture quality, and ease of use. According to Nikon, the P50 "combines classic...

Nikon had to compromise to offer this much camera at a fairly low price. If the omissions do not bother you, you'll like the small and handy size and the many good features of this handsome little camera

Expert Review

 

Small and powerful -- thanks to an 8.1-megapixel sensor -- the P50 is suitable for almost all situations and it even has a decent manual mode to tinker with.

Has a decent manual mode for such a small camera, crisp and clear shots, no obvious chromatic aberration, no obvious lens distortion

Vibration reduction made our shots look too soft, it sometimes mishandled very bright and cloudy conditions
