Nikon Coolpix S230

 

The $230 Nikon Coolpix S230 has a slick design and a large, 3-inch touch-screen LCD, but don't expect this point-and-shoot's image quality to wow you.

Compact build. Responsive touch screen.

All-around poor image quality. Slow.

Nikon CoolPix S230 review

 

Nikon has no trouble pulling off small and stylish with its Coolpix point-and-shoot cameras--even with its lower-cost models. The 10-megapixel S230 is a good example, offering up all the point-and-shoot basics, a couple extras like face, smile, and...

Very good touch-screen LCD; simple operation; overall excellent design for its class.

Generally soft photos; mixed performance.

The Nikon Coolpix S230 is a decent ultracompact camera with a little extra wow factor of a touch-screen interface.

Nikon Coolpix S230 Review

 

MELVILLE, NY (Feb. 2, 2009) - Hot on the heels of the successful COOLPIX S60 camera, Nikon today introduced the new S230, which incorporates Nikon's innovative touch screen LCD, offering the cutting-edge of elegant design and intuitive operation. The...

Nikon Coolpix S230 Digital Camera Review

 

It is a reliable, highly portable unit overall with a sleek and simplified design complimented by the intuitive touch screen interface that many users are likely to favour ahead of external buttons and controls.

Nikon Coolpix S230 Review

 

Assume these things when considering the quality of the Nikon Coolpix S230 : the potential buyers for this camera are not looking for a high-end, near DSLR quality compact. They are looking for a camera with a little flair, but they don't want to...

Warm, generally neutral colors, Flashy 3.0 inch touch screen, Attractive build and design, Reliably speedy performance

Images are noisy from low ISOs on up, Some corner softness and fringing in shots, Only packs a 3x zoom, Some weirdness with the Scene Auto Selector

Nikon CoolPix S230

 

10-megapixel Nikon compact camera with 3in LCD touch screen.

Excellent touch screen, impressive feature set, stylish design

Touch screen costs $100 (compared to CoolPix S220 model)

The Nikon CoolPix S230 is an impressive compact camera that ticks every box on the casual photographer’s wish-list. With that being said, the cheaper Nikon CoolPix S220 offers an identical imaging performance, albeit without a swanky touch screen.

Touch-screen monitors have their pros and cons for cameras. Can the S230 be more pro than con?

Nikon Coolpix S230 digital camera

 

With touchscreen becoming more user-friendly and more commonplace in pocket devices, it is no surprise to see it has pushed heavily into the compact camera market. The Nikon Coolpix S230 is one such device, sitting at the lower end of Nikon's offerings...

Compact, lightweight, good build quality, easy to use

Image quality not fantastic, tendency to over-expose, noise issues with ISO bumping

One point we shouldn’t overlook when talking about touchscreen devices is battery life. Nikon rate it at 160 shots, however you’ll probably not reach this number once you take into account all the extra viewing and playing around. We did get over 100...
