Indoor or low light shots appear soft even on casual inspection due to considerable noise reduction processing and detail smoothing.

Nikon Coolpix S33 Review

More annoying is the relatively narrow 30mm-equivalent maximum wide angle focal length which gives a very restricted field of view. The lens autofocusses quickly and reliably in well-lit environments, and though dimmer conditions sometimes result in leisurely Nikon COOLPIX S33 Camera focus times, the S33 rarely resorts to focus hunting. The real functional buttons are situated to the left of the screen. There are four to choose from and they closely resemble the buttons found down the side of the screens on the Nikon DSLRs, thanks to their location and shape.

When the Nikon Coolpix S33 is switched on, an option for the corresponding button will appear next to it on the screen for a few moments before it disappears. The top button is for camera operations while the second makes changes to the flash and self-timer. The third button down accesses the various Scene modes that are available on the camera and the fourth is for the Set-up menu system.

Technical Specification

Rear of the Nikon Coolpix S33 The Menu systems are so easy to use that a child can do it and that's entirely the point. The top button, identified by the green camera icon, has little actual function in everyday terms. It simply takes you back into Auto mode after you've been shooting in a Scene mode. The rest of the menus are very easy to work out, simply by looking Nikon COOLPIX S33 Camera them.


Usual names of features have actually been changed so that they explain what they do to someone who may not know. For anyone already accustomed to the way a menu system works, the S33 does Nikon COOLPIX S33 Camera slightly different. Generally, a menu button is pressed, then the navigation pad is used to select the appropriate option within that menu.

Nikon Coolpix S33 Review

On the S33, you have to use the left side buttons to make your selection and it can get Nikon COOLPIX S33 Camera getting used to. The buttons are firm, though and the whole camera seems well made for the price point it's set at. The lens is set inside a waterproof tube for the 3x optical zoom to move backwards and forwards. The only opening on the camera is where the battery and memory card are placed. It has a switch to release the door which is then moved in a different direction to prevent accidental opening while underwater or in sand, for example. The door is lined with orange rubber, which will degrade over time, but in reality, you'll have likely upgraded your camera before that happens, so it isn't worth worrying over. Start up time varies wildly depending on whether you have the welcome screen enabled on your camera. If so, the start up from pressing the power button to taking a picture can be up to 4.

Turning it off in the Set-up menu will reduce that to a more impressive 1.

Nikon COOLPIX S33 Camera The only thing you can do is take lots of pictures to ensure that you have a proportion that are in focus. On the face of it sorry that may sound no different to any other kind of face detect AF, except of course that anyone underwater is likely to be wearing goggles or a mask, making face detection much more of a challenge. The S33 was actually pretty good at identifying even goggle and mask-clad faces — as long as they were reasonably close to the camera and front-facing. But Nikon has also thought carefully about the design of the menu system.


The four-way controller looks conventional enough until you realise that the up and down positions work the zoom and left and right are used very rarely when you need to scroll through a horizontal icon bar, for example to select a scene mode. The top button does just one thing — it sets auto mode, so whatever mode you happen to be in, or if someone else has been using the camera, all you need to do is press that button to get back to Auto mode. The Nikon COOLPIX S33 Camera button displays a menu for the Flash and Self timer functions. The first option is always back, the second button in this case gets you to the flash options and the third one to self timers.

Each button has a screen icon opposite to tell you what it does — the third button down is for selecting scene modes, choosing decorative frame overlays and colour rendering options, including a selective colour filter. Finally the fourth button takes you to the settings menu.

So to change the image size you first press button 4 for settings which gives you four options — 1 Nikon COOLPIX S33 Camera, 2 Change sounds, 3 Choose a size and 4 Camera settings. Press button 3 to choose a size and you get three more options — 1 back, 2 Photo size and 3 Movie frame size. Press button two and the back option is followed by three more choices 2 Large 13 Megapixels3 Medium 4 Megapixels Nikon COOLPIX S33 Camera 4 Small 2 Megapixels. The available scene modes include Shoot night scenes, Shoot close-ups, Photograph food, Shoot under water, Underwater face framing, Shoot at intervals, Take a series of pictures, Photograph Fireworks, Shoot backlit scenes, Mirror, Add a bubble effect, Add a Neon effect, Add a cartoon effect, Take soft pictures, Create a diorama effect, and Shoot a movie miniature.

The Nikon COOLPIX S33 is a compact digital camera that is family friendly, waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof.
