Summary: The Coolpix S210 is a elegant, small and handy 8-megapixel camera that fits anywhere, yet has a large and razor-sharp 2.5-inch LCD that remains quite readable outdoors thanks to an anti-reflection coating. The design is clean and uncluttered, and the four available colors are quite attractive.
Pros: Hi-res 2.5 inch screen wide-angle display with anti-reflective coating, Elegant, slender Aluminum body, Digital image stabilization, Face recognition mode, Full speed VGA movies with sound
Cons: No optical zoom during movies, Still a bit thicker than Casio and others
Summary: Given that you can pick one up for under Â£150, with its cool time-lapse features, a slim frame, and commendable ease of use, the Nikon Coolpix S210 could be just the ticket as an entry-level, all-purpose camera.

Nikon Coolpix S210 8.0 MP Digital Camera: A Real Plum
Personal Electronics buzz
14 June 2008
Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix S210 digital camera with 8 megapixels was a huge hit with my 14-year old daughter. I looked around for a “cool looking” and descent digital camera for her to take on our vacation this year. In all honesty, I like it more than my own high-end digital camera. It is unreal in terms of features and technical advancements. The Coolpix S210 has image stabilization, can shoot video in action mode and has a really fine still burst mode for rapid fire shooting.
Excerpt: Looking over the press release for the new Nikon Coolpix S210 compact digital, words like "slim, elegant camera design," "quality-crafted aluminum body," "high performance," "ease of operation," "affordable," and "array of color options" jump out of the text.
Pros: Good image and color quality, Good flash recycle time, Simple body layout with intuitive controls, Metal body seems well built
Cons: No viewfinder, eVR stabilization system is a hybrid, appears more limited than typical Nikon VR, Occasional high-contrast fringing issues
