>> Josh: Hi I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor for CNET Reviews and this is the Nikon Coolpix S710. The S710 wants to be that camera you take with you while your digital SLR stays home. It offers a robust set of manual controls, a high resolution 14.5 megapixel sensor, a 28mm wide-angle lens and a sensitivity that goes up to ISO 3200 at full resolution and ISO 12,800 at 3 megapixels. However, it lacks the speed digital SLR users and even many snap shooters are used to. If you're used to shooting fast the S710's performance comes up short otherwise it's a respectable high-end point and shoot camera. In order to fit the 3 inch LCD on the back Nikon kept controls in the space between them to a minimum. The buttons are raised enough to make them easy to press though and there's a directional scroll wheel that acts in conjunction with a virtual mode dial called up when you press the actual mode button. The S710 offers program, shutter priority, aperture priority and manual modes. The Nikon Coolpix S710 does take some nice photos, sharpness in detail were particularly good at ISO 100 but as the ISO numbers go up so does the amount of softness in noise. Also while none of the 14 megapixel cameras we've tested have been particularly fast performers the S710 was noticeably sluggish taking 4 seconds to recover between shots. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Nikon Coolpix S710. ^E00:01:40
When the 5400 is good, it's very, very good. It's just missing a few features that enthusiasts crave.
The Nikon Coolpix S6000's features and performance are very good for its price, while its photos are best suited for small prints and Web use.
The Nikon Coolpix S570 is a respectable ultracompact camera, despite average point-and-shoot performance and some high-ISO overpromising.
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.
The Nikon Coolpix S200 digital camera looks pretty and will fit almost anywhere, but it just doesn't take very good photos.
The Nikon Coolpix P500 aims to be the ultimate full-size megazoom with a ludicrous 36x zoom lens and high-speed performance.
The Nikon Coolpix P500 improves on its predecessor's features and shooting performance, but its photos and video quality still aren't as good as the rest of the package.
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.
The Nikon Coolpix S3000 is an attractive inexpensive ultracompact that's a step above your average camera phone.
Aimed squarely at snapshooters looking for a carefree pocketful, this ultracompact does all the hard work and delivers decent picture quality.
