Nikon Coolpix S620 Reviews

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Nikon Coolpix S620 and writes;
“Nikon Coolpix S620 is an ultra-compact, 12-megapixel digicam that offers plenty of cool features, and great performance. I feel that it could use a boost in the Image Quality department, but overall the S620 will capture pleasing snapshots..”
Rating: N/A reviews the Nikon Coolpix S620 and writes;
“This is a fairly solid offering from Nikon. It takes a good photo, but perhaps lacks some of the more common buzz features. I found the camera very easy to use and it has a solid feel in the hand. I found this camera very quick to turn on and take shots.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DCR reviews the Nikon Coolpix S620 and writes;
“Like most of its contemporaries, the S620 is probably not a good choice for those who like to shoot indoors or in low/dim light, but unlike many of its contemporaries the S620 features a wide-angle lens and the ability to capture stunning macro images.”

DPInterface reviews the Nikon Coolpix S620 and writes;
“S620 produced good quality images, usable up to ISO 400, and ISO 800 for cases where you’re desperate. The main flaw here is color fringing, noticeable from ISO 100 to ISO 400 (ISO 800’s noise reduction practically smudges it away). Color fringing shouldn’t be noticeable unless you’re making huge prints, and if you don’t like it, you can always remove it in your favorite photo editor.”

GoodGearGuide reviews the Nikon Coolpix S620 and writes;
“The Nikon CoolPix S620 is an above average product that excels in several areas, most notably size and speed. It’s also very stylish and comes with plenty of beginner-friendly features. Well worth checking out.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

CNET.UK reviews the Nikon Coolpix S620 and writes;
“S620 is the S630′s smaller sibling, but it looks and handles better. Picture quality is good and the 4x zoom’s wideangle capability makes the S620 more practical than the S630 in most everyday situations. The face-, smile- and blink-detection modes are still hard to fathom, though, and those super-high ISOs bring serious quality loss”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Nikon Coolpix S620 and writes;
“S620 is a very straightforward camera that performs well and takes good pictures. Overly noisy pictures could become an issue if you regularly shoot in low light conditions, however the contrast capabilities mean on the whole you’ll get nice well-balanced photos.”
Rating: ★★★½☆
