Nikon Coolpix S7


Nikon takes the lead in the wireless-camera race by including some novel features on its cool new shooter, such as the ability to e-mail your photos directly from the device. Still, it's far from perfect.

Easy-to-use Coolpix Connect e-mail feature. Attractive design. Excellent 3-inch LCD screen. Nice price considering all its abilities. Very good image quality.

Some wireless functions can be confusing. Performance could be better. Noticeable shutter lag. Can't e-mail full-resolution shots.

Large screen, docking station, scroll wheel, flush zoom lens.

Menus are a little daunting until you get familiar with them, then they're pretty easy.

Slim attractive design

Sharpness and chromatic aberration issues, Slow focus and burst mode

Nikon's S7 is an attractively designed camera, however it suffers from a variety of speed and image quality issues that make it a less than desirable puchase.
