Conclusion: Nikon Coolpix S1 digital camera - Stylish design When you see the Nikon Coolpix S1 for the first time, it is inevitable that you will watch the beautiful design in admiration. It's a must to have held the camera in your hands for a while.

Pros: Design and style, Overall image quality, Large, bright and clear LCD screen
Conclusion: Nikon heeft zich met het ontwerp van de Nikon Coolpix S1 in de wereld van design begeven. Het ontwerp is zeer overtuigend en is een regelrechte blikvanger. Dat men daarbij ook oog heeft gehad voor de gebruikersvriendelijkheid en het gebruikersgemak maakt het geheel compleet.
