NikonNikon Coolpix S500 review : In a, for us, hectic period, the first quarter of the year, Nikon introduced her new selection of digital compact cameras. From the several Coolpix models, I chose the Nikon S500 to test extensively. During my vacation in the United States, I visited several National Parks and thus I used the camera frequently to record nature’s beauty. Because of the compact format and the light weight it won’t be a hassle to take the camera along on the long hiking trips each day. The Nikon Coolpix S500 is a compact digital camera with quite a traditional appearance. The camera has been equipped with a small 3x optical zoom lens with a standard range of 35-105 mm.
Nikon Coolpix S500 reviewNikon Coolpix S500 - VR system
The value topping the one of its little brother, the Coolpix S200, is the integration of Nikons’ VR system. This optical image stabilization gives more security for sharp pictures, even in bad lighting situations. Nikon's VR system provides the ability to shoot at shutter speeds as much as three steps slower without blurring the image, helping to overcome camera shake and stabilize shots of unsteady subjects. Besides this, the Nikon S500 camera knows a high sensitivity setting of 2000 ISO. However, in practice this is more a marketing tool than an effective setting.

Nikon S500 camera - Anti-Shake button
One press of the button activates Anti-Shake mode for clearer results in low light or at telephoto focal length settings. High-ISO automatically sets the optimal ISO and works with VR to deliver steady results, while BSS (Best Shot Selector) selects and saves the sharpest image from up to ten sequential shots.

Nikon S500 - One-touch portrait button
With the One-touch portrait button you have direct access to a selection of three new functions to actually improve the quality of images within the camera; Face-priority AF automatically finds, then focuses on people’s faces for crisp, clear results time after time. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically compensates to help eradicate traces of the annoying red-eye effect that can sometimes be encountered during flash photography. Completing the set is D-Lighting, which can be applied to improve underexposed images or shots taken with too much backlight. D-Lighting automatically creates a copy of the image with detail added where necessary, but with well-exposed areas left completely untouched.

Nikon Coolpix S500 digital camera review
The Nikon Coolpix S500 has become available just recently and for this reason it was time for a camera review. The Nikon Coolpix S500 compact camera is available in two colors: black and silver. I prefer the silver colored housing, and I let the camera do its job in practice. Whether the camera has pleased me, can be read in the following Nikon Coolpix S500 review.
