There are more cameras available around the £100-mark than ever before, but how does Nikon's latest S-series compact compare?
Image Quality and Value
Nikon COOLPIX S2500 review – Image Quality
In general, images produced by the Nikon COOLPIX S2500 are good enough for a compact camera around the £100 price mark. Tonal range is generally impressive, with a good balance between shadows and highlights, as well as a capacity to expose both evenly. Colour rendition is also pleasing, with white balance generally performing well. One issue is that the compact struggles in displaying fine detail, and this becomes a real issue at higher ISO settings, anywhere beyond ISO 400 becomes difficult to use.
Nikon COOLPIX S2500 review – Value
The S2500 is a lot of camera for the £100 price mark – although the screen may not be the best, and the camera may suffer from having a fairly limited selection of shooting modes and general functionality, it’s still well built and designed compact offering a good level of images.
