Nikon Coolpix S30 - digital camera

With big buttons, an easy-to-understand interface, and limited shooting options, the ; is a family-friendly waterproof and shockproof point-and-shoot.

The S30 is not a camera you want to use indoors or in low-light conditions.

The rugged Nikon Coolpix S30 is a simple, inexpensive point-and-shoot to keep poolside, and doesn't try to be anything more.

Nikon Coolpix S30 - digital camera review

 

If you're looking for a good, inexpensive point-and-shoot to take to the beach or for a dip in the pool, the Nikon Coolpix S30 is it. Nikon stripped down the shooting options and the interface to make the camera simple for the whole family to use.

Nikon Coolpix S30 Review

 

High levels of noise No options for ISO, etc.

Rugged, Lifeproof shell ; Captures decent 10-megapixel snap shots ; Records average 720p HD video ; Performs well underwater, so long as the water is clear or your subject is close ; No difficult settings to worry about with Point and Shoot mode ; Runs...

Interface is confusing and poorly designed ; Very slow shooting performance ; High levels of noise ; No options for ISO, etc ; 3x zoom is limiting ; No HDMI out

While the Nikon S30 definitely has its pitfalls, the camera can capture decent shots, and at $119.95 USD or less, it's the most affordable lifeproof camera on the market (as of 7/2012). Read more in our

Consumer review (cnet.com)

"This camera is junk."

 

I was told by my boss to buy this camera since it was on sale. I have to use it daily, I hope it was on sale because it is being discontinued. Very dissapointed for a Nikon product.

It was $79.

The connection for the cable is under the same the doot as the batteries. The batteries have a seprate door that will not remain closed when the main door is opened.
