Sleek, 6-megapixel, 3X optical Nikon Coolpix S6 compact digital camera’s wireless features are sure to intrigue the tech-savvy, and the new menu system interface is easy to use.
However, the S6’s resolution wasn’t impressive. It had just 1,400 average lines of resolution, not good for a 6MP camera. The 2.8 seconds it took for the camera to boot up was excellent, but slower than the Canon PowerShot SD430. The 3.8-second recycle time was just mediocre, more than a second longer than that of the SD430, and there was significant shutter lag. The S6 also showed barrel distortion on both the wide-angle and the telephoto ends of the zoom, which generally don’t see in compact cameras.
