Nikon Coolpix S210

 

The Nikon Coolpix S210 is a slim, attractive camera, but it pumps out soft, noisy images riddled with color fringing.

Thin. Light. Good-looking.

Poor image quality. Subpar resolution for an 8-megapixel camera. Very noticeable color fringing. Significant shutter lag.

Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera

 

This small, solid, and stylish camera is easy to use, but nothing spectacular.

Very simple navigation ; Interval shots and time-lapse video

Power button too close to shutter button ; Not enough custom controls

All the same, for under $200, with its cool time-lapse features, a slim frame, and commendable ease of use, the Coolpix S210 could be just the ticket as an entry-level, all-purpose camera

Another inexpensive, superslim pocket camera in the entry-level point-and-shoot class, the 8-megapixel Nikon Coolpix S210 isn't short on good looks. The S210 is available in an array of understated brushed-metallic colors. Priced at $180, this...

Nikon Coolpix S210 (Plum)

 

With its supermodel-slim body and classy chassis--clad in jewel tones of brushed metallic blue, plum, bronze, and basic black--the Nikon Coolpix S210 will certainly make a style statement when you whip it out of whatever tiny pocket you've slipped it...

Small, sleek, and attractive; some nice features for the money.

Relatively slow; poor-to-average photo quality for its class.

Though it's stylish, affordable, and easy to use, the Nikon Coolpix S210 performance and photo quality aren't nearly as pretty.

This nicely designed camera takes respectable photos and is easy to use, but if time is of the essence, look elsewhere.

Nice design; easy-to-use interface; produces respectable images for the price

Very slow shot-to-shot time; small LCD; no viewfinder

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Looking over the press release for the new Nikon Coolpix S210 compact digital, words like "slim, elegant camera design," "quality-crafted aluminum body," "high performance," "ease of operation," "affordable," and "array of color options" jump out of...
