Nikon Coolpix S210


$180.00 Released June, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Super-thin profile @ 0.7 inches thick. Audio playback on the video feature. Large viewing screen on the camera.

The Cons:Performance (ie. startup speed, shutter lag, time between shots) is mediocre. No optical zoom in movie mode. Pictures can get a little grainy if the iso is set to high in very low light conditions.

Thinner than a deck of playing cards, the Coolpix S210 is Nikon's slimmest ultracompact camera. As with most ultracompact cameras in the price range, the S210 offers facial recognition, image stabilization (electronic in this case, many alternatives offer optical image stabilization), scene modes and the ability to record video.
