Nikon Coolpix S9300 digital camera review

Before setting up on the FujiFilm FinePix X100 as my camera of choice when it comes to wanting a small pocket camera, I purchased the Nikon Coolpix S9300. I was not satisfied. Below image examples might look good, but in order to obtain these, I had to make heavy image manipulation in the digital darkroom (like smart blur and heavy levels correction). The original images were grainy, soft and pixelated, while the colors were dull in plain sunny midday.      However, what made me try the camera in the first place, was the multitude of shooting scene modes (16 scene modes), the small build (pocket size compact) and the high zoom (18x optical zoom). But, in the end, when you look at a picture, it’s not the camera you used that matters, so better chose a camera that has a main advantage high image quality.

Nikon D40x SLR Digital Camera Review

There are about 2 weeks now since I have the Nikon D40x and I am extremely pleased with it. The main reasons are: fast shooting and crystal clear images with natural colors, very low noise and plenty of sharpness. There are 2 more things I like about it: the fact that I can immediately delete a picture if I want without entering the playback mode (The length of time the image remains on the monitor is determined by option.) and the outstanding battery life (I believe I reached around 600 shots before recharging – and recharging time is a little bit less than 2 hours). It’s not heavy (this is important for me) and maintains the design of the previous 6MP Nikon D40, having a good grip and well placed buttons. Becoming familiar with the operation of the D40x will take little time even if the controls are well placed … Read more

Nikon Coolpix L6 Digital Camera Review

Unlike its predecessor L5, the Nikon L6 has 1MP less and also 2x less optical zoom. The battery life is impressive, but the shutter lag is slow (long time to charge flash). The design is smooth, quite flat to fit the pockets, lightweight and with intuitive buttons at the back. It does not have Shutter and Aperture Priority, but comes with plenty of scene modes including panoramic feature. The best shot selector mode captures up to 10 images and keeps the sharpest one. Therefore, the images are pleasant, with lots of details. Exposure compensation and manual white balance are a few controls that can allow some flexibility, but you can’t modify the ISO, and I find that annoying. It is a good camera for snap-shooters (due to the easy of use and image quality), but make sure you have steady hands because it does not come with image stabilization. Nikon Coolpix L6 … Read more
