PhotoxelsNikon S6 review at Photoxels : DIWA member Yin Wong from Photoxels has reviewed the Nikon Coolpix S6 digital compact camera. The Nikon S6 features a 3.0 inch LCD monitor, and because this monitor offers a surprisingly wide viewing angle of 170° (both horizontal and vertical), such in-camera entertainment can be enjoyed by everyone at the same time. The Nikon Coolpix S6 also boasts a new One-touch portrait button making it much simpler to take better quality pictures by offering easy access to Nikon's unique Face-priority AF, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and D-Lighting functions. With Face-priority AF, the camera can automatically detect people's faces in the frame, no matter where they are located, to produce sharply focused portraits.
Nikon S6 review at PhotoxelsNikon Coolpix S6 - Light metering
According to Yin Wong: "We find the overall image quality of the Nikon Coolpix S6 to be good to very good, with low noise at ISO 50 and 100. The Nikon S6 also provides exposure compensation (no Auto Bracketing), Preset (custom/manual) White Balance, and manual AF Area mode. There is no histogram. Though there are different types of metering (256-segment matrix, center-weighted, spot and spot AF), they are however not manually selectable. In Shooting mode, shutter speed ranges from 2-1/500 sec."

Nikon S6 compact camera - Operation
Yin Wong continues: "The lens does not extend out of the camera, providing a flush surface. The lens and AF-assist illuminator are at the very top right (viewed from the front) so be careful not to shade the lens and/or AF-assist illuminator with your finger(s). The front of the camera can be slippery, and the raised logo many compact cameras usually provide would be welcomed here to provide somewhat of a grip."

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.
