Nikon Coolpix S700 Review

 

Nikon's 'S' (for 'style') series is the equivalent of Canon's IXUS or Olympus' Mju range, which means that fashion most definitely comes first. From the outside at least the silver-grey brushed metal, aluminum-bodied 12 megapixel Nikon Coolpix S700...

There are plenty of style-orientated digital compacts out there, so Nikon has its work cut out in trying to make an impact, especially as, slightly awkward to control â--controllerâ-- aside, everything about the solid-feel, metal build Coolpix S700 is...

Nikon Coolpix S700 Digital Camera - Review - The Imaging Resource!

Best of all, the Nikon Coolpix S700 offers all of these features in a very compact, very sturdy, metal case that slips easily in and out of pockets (even small ones, like the front pocket of a pair of jeans). The camera's large and bright 2.7-inch...

Nikon Coolpix S700: Small with Plenty of Options

 

Nikon's S700 is their 12 megapixel flagship slim point and shoot model, and it packs a lot of value for under $275 USD. How does it measure up in day to day use?

12.1 megapixels in a small, sturdy package ; Manual controls for ISO and exposure ; Plenty of flexible photo and video options

Images can be a bit noisy, even at ISO 400 ; JPEG rendering in playback mode is slow ; Image sensor shift for vibration reduction rather than optical lens shift

In terms of things I didn't like, there's not much on the list, but the first one is a big one: when you're previewing your photos, the camera first shows you a chunky, ugly image with a lot of JPEG compression artifacts, then about one second later it...

Nikon 's new flagship compact camera, the Nikon Coolpix S700 , has been built up by the company's press department as one of the quickest compacts on the market. Speed and precision, courtesy of Nikon's EXPEED image processing, may be the way out from...

Nikon Coolpix S700

 

The new resolution high bar for compact digital cameras has been set at 12.1 megapixels - and the Nikon Coolpix S700 is up to the challenge. Along with a high resolution, the S700 has a stabilized 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.7-inch LCD screen, and...

With 12.1 megapixels, the Nikon Coolpix S700 sits at the top of the trendy Coolpix S-line. The camera outperforms the less expensive Nikon S510 in most image quality categories, sporting good color and white balance accuracy, and excellent resolution....
