Nikon Coolpix S510 Compact Digital Camera

Mike Pasini of Imaging Resource has posted his user report on the Nikon Coolpix S510 compact camera, and it looks like he instantly made friends with this little shooter from Nikon. Why?

“First, it’s compact. There was always a place for the Nikon S510 in a coat pocket, shirt pocket, or camera bag, so I never had to leave it behind.

“Second, it’s quick. It starts up faster than I can decide how I want to handle the shot, and shuts down before I can get it back in my pocket. And the shutter is fast, too.

“Third, I didn’t have to use the Nikon S510’s flash to get shots in low light. The combination of high ISO sensitivity and a lens with vibration reduction meant I could avoid the flash.

“Fourth, the Nikon Coolpix S510’s 2.5-inch LCD was big enough to both compose and evaluate images.”

For this review, Mike really put the S510 to work, shooting in many different circumstances. He concludes that the S510 is “a fun take-anywhere camera that requires almost no thought to enjoy, but you should think twice if you expect to enlarge your images bigger than 8×10.”
