Nikon Coolpix S01

 

The Nikon Coolpix S01 is an impressively small camera aimed at shooters who stick to Auto mode—but you can do much better in the budget camera realm.

Insanely small. Inexpensive. 7.3GB internal memory.

No manual shooting controls. Finicky touch-screen interface. Low resolution display. Inconsistent shutter lag.

Performance and Conclusions The S01 is slow. It requires a lengthy 3.4 seconds to start and fire a photo, records an average shutter lag of 0.6-second, and at best can fire off a photo every 1.6 seconds. The shutter lag is lengthy, but the real issue...

Nikon Coolpix S01 is a very small camera

 

Yes, the Coolpix S01 is small, and really, that's about all it has going for it.

Nikon Coolpix S01 Review

 

The Nikon CoolPix S01 is more of a novelty ultra-compact than a serious camera. While it is very easy to use, its lack of a burst mode and poor image quality has left us wanting more. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Nikon Coolpix S01 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S01 is a 10 megapixel compact camera with 3x optical zoom, 2.5-inch touchscreen, 7.3GB of internal memory, built-in battery and a body that's smaller than a credit card. Other highlights of the S01 include 720p HD movie recording, an...

Nobody is making a claim for the Nikon Coolpix S01 being a serious photographic tool. We're always told a large-ish sensor, large-ish lens and therefore large-ish camera makes for optimum quality images, and none of those are the case here. Nor,...

Nikon Coolpix S01

 

A camera of the tiniest proportions, the S01 weighs in at just under 100 grams and proportions that may make it the smallest camera on the market. Nikon has achieved this engineering feat by packing in a smaller, cellphone camera sized 10.1 megapixel...

Nikon Coolpix S01 review

 

A very small, simple camera to take anywhere

Strong colours ; Great dynamic range ; Compact

No white balance or ISO controls ; Noisy images ; Limited focal range

The compact camera market is in a state of flux at the moment, thanks to declining sales and the rise of high-spec smartphone cameras that can take photos of equal or even better quality. As such, the big camera manufacturers are pulling out all the...

Nikon Coolpix S01 Review

 

Would you believe if we said “The camera we got our hands on is smaller than your palm?” The latest from Nikon, the Coolpix S01 indeed is!

The Nikon Coolpix S01 is more about form than function, and it commands a hefty premium for its diminutiveness. Priced at Rs 8,950, it costs more than twice entry-level digital camera. However, the latter are more feature rich and take better photos...

Review: Nikon COOLPIX S01

 

Is it good enough to beat camera phones?

Extremely portable; Easy to use; Captures 720p movies.

No manual operation; Heats up while shooting video; Unreliable AF; Low-res screen; No memory card slot.
