Nikon Coolpix 2200 Video
This easy-to-use Nikon is a good starter camera for the new digital photographer, but it lacks most manual controls more-experienced shooters demand, and both the memory card and the rechargeable batteries cost extra.
It shoots good photos, but mediocre performance and a serious design flaw may keep this 8-megapixel camera out of the hands of enthusiasts.
Despite a few flaws, this is a good digital camera for starter snapshooters who crave simplicity and a helping hand but don't want to sacrifice picture quality.
A 24x optical zoom makes this crossover camera a good alternative to a dSLR, but its lack of HD video shooting hurts.
A modest update to a good camera, Nikon's Coolpix S9300 doesn't improve enough to keep pace with its competition.
Photo enthusiasts who favor wide-angle photography indoors or out will love the expansive view of this 8-megapixel EVF camera.
The Nikon Coolpix 5200 is an easy-to-use ultracompact for newbies who want to print big, but image-quality-conscious buyers should stay away.
Nikon's new member of its advanced P series, the Coolpix P300, offers a fast f1.8, wide-angle lens, broad set of manual controls, and a shooter-friendly but compact design.
The Nikon Coolpix S8200 might not be as easy to recommend as its predecessor, the S8100, but it's still a very good compact megazoom for the money.
A good, though not outstanding, compact camera, the Nikon Coolpix S600 is hindered by some shortcomings in its performance and operation.
