Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. COOLPIX S01

Question

Can you take pictures with heavily blurred backgrounds with the S01 ??

The "Scene Mode Sample Photos" suggest that you can take "professional-looking" (my wording) portraits with the COLPIX S01, i.e., the person is sharp and the background is completely out of focus. Is this correct ??

Yes. This camera has a f/3.3-5.9 lens, so you should be able to take photos that show the subject in focus and the background softly out of focus (bokeh). It will depend on what f/stop the lens is set at when you shoot. This article might help you better understand how to get bokeh in your photographs: http://www.nikonusa.com/Learn-And-E...

When I plugged my camera into my iPad it said the camera used too much power for the iPad to download images. I plugged my camera into a 4port hub and then the hub into the camera kit for iPad and it worked fine. I read about this on the net. They said it had to be a powered hub. The one I used was not a powered hub and it worked fine.

No, the COOLPIX S01 does not have a tripod socket. The S01 manual suggests using a bean bag or similar object to steady the camera but any steady surface would suffice.

The S01 will automatically switch to Close-Up Mode when it senses that its appropriate for the subject. The focus range for this mode is 5cm to infinity at "W" and 50cm to infinity at "T". If the focus indicator turns green but your pictures are still blurry, you may be experiencing motion blur. Motion blur will occur if the camera slows down the shutter speed to compensate for shooting without flash in low light. To resolve this you can try enabling the flash or steadying the camera by resting it on a stable surface.

Please see page 14 of the S01 manual for details on other situations that may impair the camera's ability to focus. A copy of the S01 manual can be downloaded from here:https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

If you continue to have trouble please contact Nikon Support: http://support.nikonusa.com.

Not a lot of help, This is a NIKON product, I am shocked you don't have a solution to download to the most commonly used Tablet. Many people have given up a computer while traveling to use a tablet We have done this for the past 2 years. And we have been successful downloading from the S01 to the Ipad 2nd generation. Now a new one and it doesn't work. It also sounds like Nikon doesn't care there product wont download.

Are you using Windows operating system? Connect camera via USB, go to devices and printers on the control panel, if the SO1 is listed right click on the device symbol and select auto play. Hard to diagnosis without asking these questions.

What comes with the Coolpix S01 camera?

I noticed under accessories for the S01, there is a battery charger, usb cable, hand strap etc.
Do these items come with a new S01, or do you have to buy them separately?

The S01 will automatically switch to Macro Close-Up mode when it senses that its appropriate to the scene/subject. All modes are selected automatically by the camera - you cannot manually select a scene mode on the S01. The focus range in Macro Close-Up mode is approximately 5 cm (2 in.) –∞ (W) or approx. 50 cm (1 ft 8 in.) – ∞ (T).

Since the S01 does not allow you to select the scene mode or aperture setting it is going to be difficult for you to control depth of field. Portrait and Macro modes tend to have less depth of field while the Landscape mode tends to have greater depth of field but the camera will choose the mode based on your scene/subject. For more information on how depth of field is managed see this article on Nikonusa.com: http://support.nikonusa.com/app/ans... .

There is no option in S01 to save your flash settings when you turn the camera off. The only settings that are remembered after you turn the camera off are the Image Mode, the Touch Shooting option and any of the options in the Set-Up (Wrench) menu.
