PhotoxelsNikon S500 review at Photoxels : DIWA member Yin Wong from Photoxels has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix S500 digital compact camera. The Nikon S500 features proven lens shift VR (Vibration Reduction) technology originally developed for interchangeable lenses used with Nikon SLR camera systems. Nikon's exclusive 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. The Nikon Coolpix S500 powers up in an impressive 0.8 seconds and has a practically imperceptible shutter release time lag of less than 0.005 seconds. High-ISO automatically sets the optimal ISO and works with VR (Vibration Reduction).

Nikon Coolpix S500 - Auto focus
According to Yin Wong: "Auto focus is fast and works very well even in low-light. In extreme low-light, the AF Illuminator automatically (if you've set it on in the Menu) kicks in to help achieve focus when you half-press the shutter release button. The AF Illuminator is situated close enough to the lens such that it is able to light up a subject even at close macro range. In addition to Auto AF and Manual area AF, Face-Priority AF is also available at a push of the One-Touch Portrait Mode button. You use the blinking smiley face displayed on screen as a guide. “

Nikon S500 Review
Yin Wong continues: “You can set the ISO on the Nikon S500 from 50 to 2000. Noise starts to be slightly visible at ISO 200 (especially in the shadows) but is usable, even up to ISO 400. At ISO 800 and up, the presence of noise quickly becomes apparent. Like most other consumer digital cameras, the Nikon S500 is therefore a great outdoors camera but will find it challenging indoors for non-flash photos, unless you intend only to print the regular small 4x6 in. size or for Web display only. Images from ISO 1600 to 2000 exhibit too much noise for clean large prints, but can be acceptable for Web display.” You want to learn more about the Nikon Coolpix digital camera?

About Photoxels
Photoxels was founded in 2002 by MyKhanh Wong (Owner, Editor) and Yin Wong (Contributing Editor), the editors behind Photoxels. In 2001, we went on the Web to learn about digital cameras like everyone else. But it seems that the more we read about digital cameras, the more reviews we scrutinized, and the more we searched... the more confused we became. If we were somewhat confused about which digital cameras to buy before visiting the digital camera review sites, we became even more confused after reading most of the (very) technical reviews. Slowly, one article and one review at a time, we pieced together what were really important to know about digital cameras and clarified many of the digital photography-related terminology. We decided to share what we learned on the Internet, and Photoxels was born.
