Nikon Coolpix S640 review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S640's MSRP is $50 more than its linemate, the S570. But that $50 buys you optical image stabilization, some slightly improved shooting performance, and a couple extra shooting options. Otherwise, it's the same simple and stylish...

Nice design; easy to use; excellent photo quality up to ISO 200; improved autofocus and start-up performance.

High-ISO settings not worth using; no HD video.

The Nikon Coolpix S640 may not be a standout camera, but it's no slouch either.

Nikon CoolPix S640 Review

 

Nikon's CoolPix S640 is all about speed. Nikon claims that it has the fastest start-up time for cameras with a 5x optical zoom and image stabilization. It also features an ultra fast auto-focus system, making it easier to capture all the candid moments...

Nikon Coolpix S640 Review

 

The Nikon Coolpix S640 is on the face of it a rather run-of-the-mill compact camera, with a 12 megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom lens and 2.7 inch screen. That's not telling the whole story though, as Nikon are claiming that the diminutive S640 is the...

The Nikon Coolpix S640 is one of the fastest compact cameras currently on the market, quickly starting up and finding focus in good light and bad. An inexplicable 5 second delay after the S640 is powered on and a rather average feature set detract from...

Nikon Coolpix S640 Digital Camera Review

 

Review of Nikon Coolpix S640, the fastest camera in the Coolpix range with an autofocus speed comparable to digital SLRs. Let's take a look at this 12-megapixel camera.

Nikon Coolpix S640 Review

 

Bringing the Nikon Coolpix S640 out on the street or to a party won't raise any eyebrows.

Fast ; Tough and versatile ; Easy to use

Lots of noise at high ISO ; No manul exposure ; Weak flash

The S640's Auto White Balance is dependably accurate over a wide range of lighting conditions. In fact, it's the best auto WB I've seen in a camera in this price class - easily equal to Canon's "G" series cameras. The S640's Auto WB mode handled indoor...

Nikon Coolpix S640

 

The Nikon Coolpix S640 is a very small ultra-compact camera with a stabilized wide-angle lens, offering a 4X range from 28 to 112mm, in 35mm-equivalent terms. Up to relatively recently, there was very little competition in terms of wide-angle...

Very fast autofocus lock, Image noise under control up to ISO 800, Consistent exposure, Natural image colors, Very good white balance, Excellent LCD visibility, Great LCD contrast and refresh rate

Frequent autofocus miss, Useless ISO 3200 and 6400 sensitivities, High purple fringing, Slow shot to shot speed, Pathetic continuous drive, Redeye problems, Battery charges in camera

The Nikon Coolpix S640 is one of many ultra-compact point-and-shoot cameras with a wide-angle lens. This model manages to stand out by its ultra-fast autofocus system, something which is unmatched among such small cameras. This feature makes it more...

Nikon CoolPix S640 digital camera

 

The Nikon CoolPix S640 possesses impressive specs, but the quality of its images failed to impress us

Compact and light, great zoom

Poor overall image quality, overpriced

Although the Nikon CoolPix S640 has impressive specs, the quality of its images was not as good as we were expecting.
