Nikon keeps introducing plenty of cameras under its Cool Pix range. Here is a review on the S 6100 camera that consists of some of the greater and boastful features.
The Nikon Coolpix S 6200 carries a 10 x optical zoom lens that collapses into the body. This powerful camera is built with a 25-250 mm lens in terms of 35 mm. The lens on this camera offers a maximum aperture range of f/3.3-6.3 and is comprised of 9 elements in 7 groups. The lens on this camera supplies ample light into the 16-megapixel CCD sensor, which is backside-illuminated. The camera is pleasingly quick in operation and has an instant start up time. The camera has a subject tracking scene mode that successfully detects, tracks and focuses on the main subject. This eases down capture of fast-moving subjects in a jiffy. The camera includes an excellent VR or vibration reduction image stabilization system that helps prevent the camera-shake. This is an essential feature for most cameras these days.
Additionally, there are a range of other features, functions and modes that help prevent camera shake. The High ISO light sensitivity on this camera goes up to ISO 3200 at full resolution. It also has a motion detection option that automatically detects and compensated sot both camera and subject movement. In addition to the above, this camera has a Best Shot Selector (BSS) mode that automatically selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots. It also features Night portrait mode that has the ability to expose the portrait subject and background separately and then combines the exposure to create a blur-free portrait. It also has a Backlighting mode that offers an in-camera high dynamic range (HDR) function that merges several images of the same scene to achieve a single image with plenty of tonal details.
It also has a Scene mode that gains access to 19 different scenes. Some of them include Portrait, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Close up and Backlight. In addition, this camera also has an effects mode that shoots both still images and movies using a special effect such as Soft Focus and Nostalgic Sepia. The in-camera filters can be used to enhance the photos after clicking them, with filters including Cross Screen, Fisheye and Miniature Effect. Alongside the Scene/Camera button is the self-explanatory Playback button.
Design and Display:
The CoolPix S6200 doesn’t have too many external controls and buttons (just 10 in total). On top of the camera are the left and right stereo sounds mics, small recessed On/Off button, shutter release button and tactile push/pull zoom lever.
On the bottom the S6200 has a memory card slot allowing the use of SD, SDHC or SDXC cards, and there's also 32MB of internal memory, which can store 7 images at the highest quality level. The memory card slot is shared with the battery compartment. There's also a plastic tripod socket that is inconveniently located in the far-left corner of the camera. The camera is supplied with a Lithium-ion rechargeable battery that lasts for 250 shots according to CIPA standards. The rear of this camera has a 2.7-inch LCD monitor with 230k-dot resolution. This display is an anti-reflection coating enabled screen with 5-levels of brightness and a fairly wide viewing angle.
Not the latest in terms of features but the CoolPix S6200 from Nikon is certainly a great adversary over its competitors.
