Photographyblog reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S01 and writes;
” talking of Android, the S01 here doesn’t appear to offer much more functionality – save its 3x optical zoom – than your smartphone when it comes to photos and video. In fact in some respects it offers less, as there’s no Bluetooth or Wi-Fi built in (and obviously it can’t make calls or surf the Internet!). Plus image quality is only slightly better than the average smartphone – at a pinch.”

Pocket-lint reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S01 and writes;
“Although miniature, this £149 compact isn’t as tricky to use as we first assumed it might be. It’s not as immediately comfortable as a standard compact though, but this looks like the perfect pocket or handbag-friendly snapper.”

Imaging-resource reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S01 and writes;
“Beneath its scratch-resistant, stainless body lies a 1/3-inch type CCD image sensor, a size more commonly associated with camera phones, but instead of the typical cameraphone fixed aperture, fixed focal length, and often fixed-focus lens, the Nikon S01 places a small 3x optical zoom lens.”

Ephotozine reviews the Nikon COOLPIX S01 and writes;
“It’s a very stylish and cute camera you could take anywhere with you and forget you had it on you. Built in lithium-ion battery that can’t be removed as well as 7.3gb of memory.”
