DP Review
6 May 2015
  • Conclusion: The Coolpix S10 follows in the footsteps of some of the most highly-rated compact cameras in digital photography's short history. I still remember reviewing the original Coolpix 900, a camera that quite literally set the standard by which all digital compacts were judged, as did the three or four...
  • Pros: Unique twisting body design brings real creative versatility, Very compact for a 10x zoom, Decent resolution and fairly good detail capture at lower ISO settings, Relatively 'natural' looking output - not over contrasty or over saturated, Simple point and shoot operation, Pretty effective Vibrati...
  • Cons: Slow focus (hunting) at longer focal lengths, in macro mode and in low light, Some focus errors at long end of zoom and in macro mode, Large screen and lack of grip makes for rather poor handling, Too easy to accidentally knock the joystick and bring up menus, Some aspects of user-interface are a...

PhotoAxe
17 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Coolpix S10 makes some significan’t improvements over its predecessor, the Coolpix S4, adding image stabilization, a stronger flash, a sharper LCD, and more.

  • Summary: Nikon continues the swiveling lens design that made the Coolpix cameras legendary. It all started with the , one of the first cameras we ever reviewed back in 1998 and continued until 2002 with the Coolpix 4500 which Nikon said would be the last of the swivel-lens models.

Digital Camera Review
28 February 2007
  • Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S10 digital camera Nikon’s first consumer digicam was the swiveling lens Coolpix 900. This innovative camera featured a split body design that permitted the CP 900’s zoom lens to swivel through a 270 degree arc, independent of the LCD screen, giving shooters a new level of...

  • Excerpt: The Coolpix S10 ($400) is the latest swivel-body digital camera from Nikon. It's the followup to the lackluster (in my opinion) Coolpix S4, which wasn't nearly as impressive as the original Coolpix 900-series cameras that came before it.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality, Unique swivel-lens design, Optical image stabilization, Large, sharp 2.5" LCD; good low light and outdoor visibility, Powerful flash, Tons of scene modes, In-camera help system, Handy D-Lighting and Best Shot Selector features, Fancy slideshow feature, Time-lapse photogra...
  • Cons: No manual controls, Audio sync problem in movie mode, Slow focusing at telephoto end; low light focusing was pretty lousy, Image stabilization not available in movie mode (electronic only), Right thumb tends to rest on LCD, blocking view and leaving fingerprints, No optical or electronic viewfind...

[ REVIEW—NIKON Coolpix S10 ]

DPexpert
7 July 2011
  • Excerpt: This 6 megapixel camera is the successor to Nikon’s first consumer digital cameras, created with the split body that carries the lens in one part and the processor and LCD screen in the other.
  • Pros: Image quality is very good and we attribute this in part to Nikon’s decision to stick with 6 mp rather than getting into the pixel war.
  • Cons: The S10 hides some important controls under layers of menu. Not to have instant access to exposure adjustment — the most frequently used correction in a digital camera — is inexcusable. The most humble point and shoot cameras put exposure compensation buttons on the camera body.

Tech Digest
30 May 2008
  • Excerpt: The propaganda The CoolPix S10 is Nikon's top end swivel design digital camera. Although the rotating lens might look a bit outlandish – probably more like a camcorder than a digital still camera – it incorporates a 10x optical…

  • Conclusion: There’s a lot that’s good here, such as the VR and Portrait functions, but the casing is bulky and the price is a tad too high

  • Conclusion: If you are looking for a straightforward digital camera that will give you plenty of zoom then I would recommend the Nikon Coolpix S10. I found great levels of sharpness and strong colours too. The twisting lens design gives the camera something different too.
