Nikon Coolpix S52C Reviews

DCR reviews the Nikon Coolpix S52C and writes;
“the S52c is the winner of a two-horse race, clearly besting the wireless transfer capabilities of the rival Panasonic Lumix TZ50 in both reliability and ease of use (though the TZ50 remains the vastly superior image maker).”
Rating: N/A reviews the Nikon Coolpix S52C and writes;
“Noise control is par for the course, with ISO 400 being reasonable, 800 gritty and 1,600 or over unusable… Our opinion of these models as cameras hasn’t changed much, though: the Nikon Coolpix S52c, like its predecessor, is a fairly average point-and-shoot.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Nikon Coolpix S52C and writes;
“Image noise performance was moderate. There was some minor speckling even at ISO 200, but it wasn’t noticeable at most magnifications. It isn’t until you hit ISO 800 that the shots become blotchy and start to be unsuitable for even smaller prints..”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ePhotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix S52C and writes;
“A disappointing result from the ISO test with a softening of the image starting from ISO200. However, things don’t seem to get worse until ISO800 when purple blotches start to appear on the black card…If you like your cameras sexy and your technology at the forefront, then this is the camera for you.”
