Nikon Coolpix S710


$380.00 Released September, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Manual mode is surprisingly functional, even amongst inexperienced users - easy to switch between ISO and shutter aperture settings, with versatile capabilities for both. Provides a sleek, compact upgrade from Nikon's previous Coolpix models - excellent option for users seeking a portable point-and-shoot-style photo experience. Image capture is natural and true-to-life, with minimal hue alteration or other degradation issues - excellent overall quality for a compact digital, imparting minimal grainy/pixelated qualities.

The Cons:Some users report "lens error" issues within as little as one month of use - Nikon is seemingly unwilling to assist in these types of issues, causing considerable frustration.

The sleek Nikon Coolpix S710 follows the trend in latter 2008 of dramatically increased resolution in slim compact digital cameras. In this case, a 14.5 megapixel sensor is coupled with a 3.6x Nikkor zoom lens with a maximum width of 28mm.
