But the lock could be a little bit better a little bit more -- here. -- can also be a bit better is the -- It has a small maximum aperture F 39. Which means if you're shooting in less than full sun. Year probably going to be using high ISOs are slow shutter speeds in order to get a good shot. So well as photos are pretty good when you have plenty of light. Shooting indoors without a flash or deep underwater. Probably won't get you great shots. Otherwise it's a good rugged compact especially in light of its price which is now down below 300 dollars. I'm Josh Goldman and that's look at the Nikon Coolpix EW 100.
Nikon's addition of a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor makes its Coolpix S8100 compact megazoom a fine choice.
As long as you have plenty of light, the Nikon Coolpix L120 is a nice camera for snapshooters in love with long lenses.
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 Coolpix P7000 is a fine camera that lots of enthusiasts will appreciate for its smart shooting design, interesting feature set, and worthy photo quality.
The Nikon Coolpix S220 is an adequate, inexpensive choice for social network-loving photogs.
For easy automatic snapshots of still subjects in good lighting, the Nikon Coolpix L24 is sufficient. If you need more than that, don't bother.
When the 5400 is good, it's very, very good. It's just missing a few features that enthusiasts crave.
The Nikon Coolpix S200 digital camera looks pretty and will fit almost anywhere, but it just doesn't take very good photos.
A 24x optical zoom makes this crossover camera a good alternative to a dSLR, but its lack of HD video shooting hurts.
The Nikon Coolpix L100 is a decent entry-level megazoom. Just don't look too closely at the photos and stock up on AA batteries.
Nikon Coolpix AW100 (Blue) Review
The good: The Nikon Coolpix AW100 has good rugged specifications for its price and solid GPS performance. The camera is also fairly easy to use out of the box.
The bad: The AW100's slow lens requires more use of high ISO settings or slow shutter speeds. Its controls feel spongy and occasionally unresponsive due to the waterproofing and the body's somewhat slippery.
The bottom line: The rugged Nikon Coolpix AW100 is a fine choice for shallow water or dry land adventures -- just make sure you have plenty of light.
