nikon coolpix S01 review
I was given a Nikon Coolpix S01 for a project I did with Converse wherein we needed to shoot ourselves unedited using only the camera provided (see post HERE). The resulting photos were to be utilized in a collage for a worldwide campaign.
Yes I was super iffy when I first got the news. First of all, circumstances meant I would have to shoot indoors which is always a problem especially when you live in a condo with not much natural light available but it's not like I had a choice right? Anyway, I was surprised with how good the results were.

|Instead of the usual sport, macro, portrait (etc) settings, the S01 comes equipped with Filter Effects that you can use to post edit your photos on cam without the need to upload.|

Here's what won me over: its ability to shoot extremely well without flash indoors with minimal natural light:
|indoor no flash, natural lighting|
Here's another example I stole off the internet shooting in natural daylight:

Photos captured by Nikon's Coolpix S01 have extremely vibrant color.
The fact that it does not have manual settings might be a turn off to some but the camera is pretty smart and seems to do a great job of pre-determining the correct settings for different situations producing clear and vivid photographs 99% of the time. 1% is mostly human error which is practically impossible to commit given the simplicity of the camera.
To sum it up: The Nikon Coolpix S01 is a super fun and easy camera to use. It's great for younger children, senior citizens and those who just want to document holidays and events with decent photos but don't want to bother with cumbersome photography settings. Photo quality is considerably better than an iPhone 5 so yep, this little baby has an edge over your smartphone!
The Nikon Coolpix S01 retails for about P9900 in the Philippines, around P7500 abroad.
