Nikon Coolpix S6


May 29th, 2006.

Our good friends from the dutch website letsgodigital.org have just published a review of the slim and compact Nikon Coolpix S6 digital camera. The Nikon Coolpix S6 is a 6.0 megapixel camera that features a three times optical zoom, a large 3.0" inch LCD monitor, and a stylish wave design.

In her review of the Nikon Coolpix S6, Ilse Jurriën notes:

"I found working with the Nikon S6 digital camera an exceptionally pleasant experience. The camera truly lives up to its word; ease, excellent image quality and superb innovation packaged in a stylish design.

Compactness, a lightweight body and an entry-level operation are the keywords that describe the Nikon Coolpix S6 camera. The use of the intelligent in-camera software, however, is what truly makes the Nikon S6 stand out from its competition."

Pictmotion automatically produces a slide show with pace and transition selected to match music and style.

  • One-touch portrait function
    A standalone One-touch portrait button is conveniently located on the top of the Nikon Coolpix S6, giving direct access to three innovative Nikon features for in-camera improvement.


    1. Face-priority AF automatically finds and then focuses on people's faces no matter where they are in the frame for pleasingly sharp portraits time after time.

    2. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix can automatically detect the annoying red-eye effect that sometimes occurs in flash photography, then compensate for it in-camera to give natural-looking portraits.


    3. D-Lighting can improve underexposed images or shots taken with too much back light by creating a copy with light and detail added wherever necessary and well-exposed areas kept exactly as they are.
