I'm Josh Goldman senior editor for CNET reviews and this absolutely Nikon Coolpix S 4000. Priced at less than 200 dollars X twelve megapixel ultra compact cameras main attractions. -- wide angle lens with a four X zoom and a large three inch touch screen LCD. Since touch screen is used for most functions there are few physical controls. On tops power button and shutter release with -- zoom ring. And then on back are shooting mode and play buttons but that it. Thankfully the screen is responsive and menus and shooting options open quickly with little no lag. If you don't -- during the screen with fingerprints stylus is included. That kind makes good use of the touch interface -- allowing you to do things like -- -- activate it tracking auto focus. And draw or write on photos. All at all using the screen is good experience. What we didn't enjoy was the rest of the camera performance particularly the auto focus system which seems really inconsistent. It's possible to get shots there and focus but it regularly took several attempts shooting performance is also pretty slow even in bright lighting. Photo quality is okay typical the lower end point and shoot good when you have a lot of light but indoors or in low light conditions it's fairly mediocre. If -- shots are destined for the win or four by six inch prints it should suffice though. I'm Josh Goldman and that's a look at the Nikon Coolpix S with.
The Nikon Coolpix S70 has a top-notch touch-screen interface and eye-catching design, but you're definitely paying for them.
The Nikon Coolpix L10, L11, and L12 models are budget-friendly digital cameras that take decent pictures and have face detection but don't do much else.
The Nikon Coolpix S4 resurrects the company's classic swivel-lens design with modern touches, including lots of scene modes and in-camera fixes for common problems. Image quality and performance seem a bit old-fashioned, however.
The Nikon Coolpix L110 definitely offers a lot for the money, but it still has the photos and shooting performance of an entry-level point-and-shoot.
Nikon produces another solid point-and-shoot compact megazoom with the Coolpix S9100 by offering fast performance, good photos, and an excellent feature-to-price ratio.
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 S230 is a decent ultracompact camera with a little extra wow factor of a touch-screen interface.
The Nikon Coolpix S6200 is not exceptional in any way, but casual snapshooters in need of a pocket-friendly 10x zoom camera should check it out.
It shoots good photos, but mediocre performance and a serious design flaw may keep this 8-megapixel camera out of the hands of enthusiasts.
A good, though not outstanding, compact camera, the Nikon Coolpix S600 is hindered by some shortcomings in its performance and operation.
