Summary: I got this camera in December of 2008. It worked great for five months - most pictures were great, video is so-so for one of these cameras, and not really good for nighttime shots (though it is a point-and-shoot). But, five months after owning the camera, I turned it on and got a lens error.
Summary: Very slow focusing, high noise at high ISO, eVR does not help to reduce blur in low light conditions, sharpness is awful, poor image quality, it does not detect faces very well, poor metering.
Pros: very compact camera, nice design, bright LCD, it is possible to see up to 16 pictures in review mode,
Cons: Very slow focusing, high noise at high ISO, eVR does not help to reduce blur in low light conditions, sharpness is awful, poor image quality, it does not detect faces very well.

Summary: I bought the Nikon Coolpx S210 as a mother's day gift for my wife. She wanted a small, simple, point-and-shoot camera. The camera is indeed quite compact with some nice features, but in the end it is the quality of the photos that count.
Summary: I bought this on the high street, at a good price and because it is so slim that it can be taken anywhere. However, a couple of months on, I am disappointed and wish I had tried a different camera.
Summary: I purchased a Nikon Coolpix S210 camera in August last year. I chose Nikon as I have a Nikon SLR and a Nikon D50, both of which I love. Having never had a compact digital before I was keen to stick with a brand I trusted. The first camera failed after about 8 weeks, due to a terminal lens error.
