Nikon Coolpix S02

 

The Nikon Coolpix S02 is inexpensive and small, but it doesn't have much else going for it.

Very small. Plenty of internal storage space. Affordable.

Poor image quality. Lacks Wi-Fi. Proprietary USB interface. Low-res LCD.

Performance and Conclusions The S02 starts and captures an in-focus image in about 2 seconds, which is on the slow side. Its autofocus speed is inconsistent; it ranged from 0.2-second to 0.9-second in our tests, with an average of 0.5-second. There's...

Nikon Coolpix S02 is one small camera

 

This follow-up to the S01 remains supersmall and lightweight, but gets a new sensor and larger touch screen.

Nikon Coolpix S02 Preview

 

Nikon has announced a fun and innovative "mini camera", the Coolpix S02, that is so small, Nikon claims you can fit two of them in one pocket. Despite its size and sub-$200 cost, the S02 comes with some higher end features, including a 13.2-megapixel...

Nikon Coolpix S02 Review

 

Springing out of the Style range of cameras is the slight Nikon Coolpix S02. This tiny camera features a 13 megapixel CMOS sensor, Full HD video, 2.7 inch touch-screen and digital effects. It looks sublime, but is it as good on the inside as it is on...

Nikon have taken an interesting slant with the Coolpix S02. They've released a camera that competes with a smart phone in terms of UI but also made sure that the image quality beats it. Of course, it's still a picture taking machine and ideally that...

Nikon Coolpix S02 review

 

Nikon's micro compact is smaller than a credit card… but is it too lightweight?

Small ; Robust build ; Simple to use

No memory card slot ; Few controls ; Poor high ISO images

Nikon Coolpix S02 Review

 

. It is an ultra-compact camera with 3x optical zoom, full 1080p HD video recording and a 13 megapixel sensor. It's available in silver, white, blue and pink for £106.

Extremely small camera, Metal body, Plenty of built-in memory, Easy to use, Touch screen is responsive

You can get much cheaper budget cameras, Short battery life, No built-in Wi-Fi

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Nikon COOLPIX S02 26432 White

 

Am RMA'ing it for a replacemnet. Hopefully just a bad one in the bunch. Not seeing any other reviews for ANY of these (four different color options).

Small, light weight, fairly inexpensive (<$100), its a Nikon

Camera will not stay powered on, when either connected to power cord or not. I am assuming that this is an indication that the camera is not properly charging. Camera will turn on for a few seconds then shut itself off. Tried multiple cables and...
