Nikon Coolpix S610 Reviews

DCR reviews the Nikon Coolpix S610c and writes;
“S610 offers good image and color quality and a fast AF acquisition time in good light, along with ISO performance on a par with most competitors in the class.”
Rating: N/A

NeoCamera reviews the Nikon Coolpix S610c and writes;
“What this digital camera has to offer is a slim body and reliable image quality with below average image noise. ”
Rating: ★★★½☆ reviews the Nikon Coolpix S610c and writes;
“I was impressed by the photos I took when the subject was relatively close to the camera, but more distant scenes proved to be more of a problem. The Coolpix S610 has a very fast start up time and is also easy to use.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Nikon Coolpix S610c and writes;
“S610c is a solid compact camera with a few notable problems. It takes fairly good snaps and has wireless connectivity; however, uploading photos can be slow.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

ePhotozine reviews the Nikon Coolpix S610c and writes;
“For the right type of person, this camera is perfect. That person has to enjoy a good looking camera that produces nice colours.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Nikon Coolpix S610c and writes;
“. It lacks some useful features found on other models in the range, and the performance is nowhere near the claimed level. Picture quality is generally quite good, although image noise control is not as good as the cheaper S560.The Wi-Fi feature does work well, but if you don’t really need that then you’d be better off looking for a cheaper alternative.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Nikon Coolpix S610 and writes;
“Noise was a fairly significant factor at times. ISO 100 and 200 produce clean snaps, but at ISO 400 there is a slight drop in clarity and this continues all the way up to the totally unusable ISO 1600 and ISO 3200.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Nikon Coolpix S610 and writes;
“In terms of image quality things are much better. Focusing is effective, even for complex, potentially AF crushing scenes.. low ISO image quality is superb, but as you’d expect, as you move up through the ISO settings things deteriorate but not to any degree you’d expect.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET.UK reviews the Nikon Coolpix S610 and writes;
“The CoolPix 610 is neat, compact and well-finished. Its start-up and autofocus speeds are quicker than some Nikon compacts of old, too.. Sharpness is what you’d expect from this class of camera at low ISOs, though at high ISO the Nikon uses super-aggressive noise reduction, which reduces textures to flat splodges of colour.
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Nikon Coolpix S610 Press Release

Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 7 August 2008 –Nikon Europe is proud to announce the introduction of four new COOLPIX compact cameras: the S610, the S610C. The new cameras cater to everyone’s tastes and needs. Both the S610 and S610C are incredibly fast, with the world’s fastest start-up time in their class*, 10 effective megapixels and a wide-angle 4x zoom. The S610C’s wireless LAN connectivity makes uploading pictures to the internet easy.

COOLPIX S610C and S610 Besides their stylish design, the S610C and S610 have the fastest start-up times in their class*. Their easy operation makes them simple to get to know. Both cameras offer advanced features that include Scene Auto Selector, a first for Nikon COOLPIX models. With this setting the camera automatically selects the most appropriate Scene Mode such as portrait, landscape, night setting, or close up. Photographing moving subjects such as children or pets is extremely easy with the Active Child Mode setting that automatically keeps moving subjects in sharp focus. Smile Mode, which automatically takes a picture when the person in focus smiles, means you’ll never miss that loving smile again. The S610C is the world’s first compact camera compliant with WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), which makes for effortless and secure connectivity to Wi-Fi routers to allow quick and easy on-line storage and sharing of digital pictures via Nikon’s my Picturetown.
