Nikon Coolpix S2500 Review: Overview

The Nikon Coolpix S2500 is priced at under £100 and offers a 12.1 mega pixel image sensor, a 2.7-inch LCD monitor and a slim body. Offered in a variety of colour schemes and including a number of auto functions means this digital camera is a very tempting point-and-shoot camera purchase. Lets see if it’s worth the money.

The Coolpix S2500 comes in a typically styled Nikon cardboard box with their brand colours (yellow, black and white) being represented. As well as the usual driver disks and documentation, also included are a hand strap, USB cable and S-Video TV connector.

The camera’s body is available in a variety of wacky colours depending on the country you live in. We’ve been boring and have the black version, which looks almost identical to metal even though it’s completely plastic.

One of the main highlights about the Nikon S2500 is the design; its rounded slim exterior is only 20mm in thickness, making it perfect for slipping away into your trouser pocket. This makes it perfect for capturing those embarrassing moments at whim or when it’s not possible to have your SLR dangling off your shoulder.

Remember when digital cameras in the sub £100 price range were all digital zoom? This has changed in recent years and the Nikon Coolpix S2500 offers a 4x optical and 4x digital zoom – comparable to a 27-108mm focal range in 35mm. In this sort of price range you don’t really see anything above 5x optical zoom, so if you want something greater you’re going to need to spend £30+ for something above 8x.

The S2500 is extremely simple to use, the power, zoom and shoot buttons are found on the top of the camera. The controls for flash, scene selection, playback, exposure compensation, macro, timer, menu and delete are found typically places next to the LCD. All these buttons are labelled too so it’s very clear what the function of each button is.
