>> Hi. I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor at CNET Reviews, and this is the Nikon Coolpix S570. It's a simple, stylish 12-megapixel camera. Its best feature is its lens, an F27 28-millimeter wide-angle with a 5X zoom. The S570 is available in pink, black, blue, and red with a metal outer shell that gives it a higher-end feel and sturdiness. It's also fairly slim and lightweight. In back is a 2.7-inch LCD and navigation controls that should be easy to master for anyone that's used a digital camera before. Shooting modes on the S570 are aimed squarely at snap shooters, especially the smart portrait system that gets its own spot in the shooting mode menu. It combines Nikon's blink warning, smile shutter, in-camera red eye fix, D lighting, and face priority AF features into one mode, and also adds a new skin-softening component. Photo quality, in general, is very good, and better than I expected from a sub $200.00 Coolpix camera. The only place it stumbles are at ISO 1600 and 3200, which is pretty common for its class. Performance is a little sluggish, though, making the camera better suited for portraits, landscapes, and other things that aren't moving. I'm Josh Goldman, and that's a look at the Nikon Coolpix S570. ^M00:01:25 [ Music ]
The Nikon Coolpix S640 is a respectable midrange ultracompact with some improved shooting performance over other Coolpix models.
Snapshooters wanting a little more creative control than the average point-and-shoot offers should check out the Nikon Coolpix P300.
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.
Fun features and chic styling make the Nikon Coolpix S60 a tasty choice for casual point-and-shoot use. However, if you need speed or snapshot perfection, this isn't your camera.
The Nikon Coolpix S800c marries an above-average point-and-shoot with the functionality of an Android device.
The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is an attractive inexpensive ultracompact that's a step above your average camera phone.
A useful wide-to-supertelephoto zoom range and a competent EVF are the key attractions of this 4-megapixel point-and-shoot compact.
A few fun and useful features spice up this competent 5-megapixel point-and-shoot Nikon Coolpix 5900, aimed at snapshot photographers.
It shoots good photos, but mediocre performance and a serious design flaw may keep this 8-megapixel camera out of the hands of enthusiasts.
Nikon Coolpix S570 (Black) Review
The good: Good lens specifications; Smart Portrait System works well; nice design, feature set.
The bad: Middle-of-the-road performance; ISO 1,600, 3,200 not worth using.
The bottom line: The Nikon Coolpix S570 is a respectable ultracompact camera, despite average point-and-shoot performance and some high-ISO overpromising.
