Coolpix S6 Digital Camera

 

Nikon's Coolpix S6 presents an attractive package, in more ways than just its appearance. The price tag ($350 as of 6/15/06) is seductive for a pocket-size, 6.0-megapixel, Wi-Fi-equipped camera. And you have to love the roomy, 3-inch LCD: Its...

Built-in Wi-Fi, very sharp LCD display Very useful selector dial and thumb pad

Lacks contrast and saturation controls

Battery life was below average, at 245 shots

Built-in Wi-Fi, very sharp LCD display ; Very useful selector dial and thumb pad

Lacks contrast and saturation controls

Thin model offers Wi-Fi, sharp 3-inch LCD, and an easy-to-use selector dial and thumb pad. But it lacks some common controls.

Nikon Coolpix S6

 

The Coolpix S6 digital camera is slim and hip, but it's more about style than substance.

Large LCD. Stylish design. Fun features, such as the Picmotion Slide Show mode.

Picture quality is so-so. Mediocre performance.

I had lots of fun with Picmotion, the S6's in-camera slide-show function, which lets you use both still images and movies to build your presentations. Nikon partnered with muvee to create the feature, and it is pretty easy to set up. The really cool...

Nikon Coolpix S6 review

 

intro The 6-megapixel Nikon Coolpix S6 is an overly stylish little snapshooter with nice design points, useful features, solid performance, and attractive photos. Its nifty click wheel is a great way to browse settings and pictures, but the rest of its...

Great click wheel; slim design; solid color reproduction.

Irritating top buttons; extremely limited Wi-Fi capabilities.

The Nikon Coolpix S6 is a stylish performer with a handy control wheel, but its Wi-Fi implementation feels almost like an afterthought.

Nikon Coolpix S6

 

There are plenty of ultra-thin cameras on the market. Find out how the S6 compares in our review, which starts now

Compact and stylish metal body ; Built-in 802.11b/g for wireless photo transfer (though see issues below) ; Huge 3-inch LCD display; screen is visible in low light ; Tons of scene modes ; In-camera help system ; Handy D-Lighting and Best Shot Selector...

Lots of vignetting and blurry edges; images a bit soft too; some color problems ; Redeye (despite the fancy removal tools) ; Disappointing night shot performance ; Poor low light focusing despite having an AF-assist lamp ; Tiny buttons on top of...

Overall I was a bit disappointed with the Coolpix S6. Sure, it looks cool, and some of the features are really handy. But the bottom line is that photo quality is not as good as other ultra-compacts, and it has more flaws to boot. I'd probably skip the...
