Nikon Coolpix S630 is a pocket-sized camera with 12 megapixels of resolution, 7X optical zoom with image stabilization, 2.7 inch LCD and a “Sure Grip” design. It is “small camera, big zoom” offering from Nikon. The camera is also lightweight.
The S630 also has Nikon’s Smart Portrait system ( face, smile and blink detection, redeye fix and D-Lighting) and Motion Detection and scene selection which adjusts settings to different conditions. The S630 has no manual controls.
The camera is quite fast. In the “Sports Continuous” Mode it shoots at 11 fps up to 20 photos, but at the resolution of 3 megapixels.
The Nikon Coolpix S630 comes in several colors: black, silver, red, dark blue or purple.
The camera has decent performance. It is as noisy as most compact cameras are - photos are usable up to ISO 400.
The camera’s image quality is excellent, with low noise, above average color accuracy, and minimal lens distortion. Where the camera falters is its image stabilization system, a slow continuous burst mode, and standard definition video with very little control.
