Nikon Nikon Coolpix S500

 

The Nikon Coolpix S500 delivers top-notch image quality. At $300, it may seem a little pricey for a compact camera with a relatively standard 7.1-megapixel sensor, a 3X zoom lens, and a 2.5-inch LCD. Into its tiny and tough metal body, however, Nikon...

Optical image stabilization ; Face detection

Pricey ; No optical viewfinder

The S500's face detection and optical image stabilization help it deliver top-quality shots.

Nikon Coolpix S500 review

 

Nikon really shows off its style with its Coolpix S500, a sleek, compact camera that feels every bit as good as it looks. This little shooter has some of the nicest design points we've seen in a small shooter, plus a few handy features normally seen on...

Small, light stainless steel body and click wheel interface are great design touches; optical image stabilization; fast burst shooting.

Slow performance; way too much noise at high ISO settings.

The Nikon Coolpix S500 may look and feel pretty, but its slow performance and noisy high-ISO images hold it back.
