Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S220 is a cheaper, non-touchscreen version of the Coolpix S230. The camera packs the same lens, sensor and most features. Unfortunately, the Coolpix S230 wasnâ€™t flawless, and neither is the Coolpix S220 here. 10 megapixels, 3X optical zoom and a 2.5 inch screen, the Nikon Coolpix S220 has a specifications sheet alike other entry-level digital cameras.
Pros: Slim design, Good ergonomics and easy to use, Smart Portrait, motion detection and auto scene selection features
Cons: Strong noise reduction results in softness and lack of detail, Cheap lens with poor sharpness and no real image stabilizer, Low resolution LCD; doesnâ€™t show a lot of information in shooting/playback, Crummy low-light autofocus, Below average battery life
Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix S220 has a surprisingly large number of features for a Point and Shoot digital camera in its price range. In this review, we’ll examine a few of these features and discuss the camera’s pros and cons.
Conclusion: While some lens, LCD, and image quality is sacrificed in the Coolpix S220 for its affordable price tag and ultra compact body, overall this unit undoubtedly offers a lot of style and portability for a very little asking price. One certainly worth considering if looking to purchase a stylish but positively simple compact camera within this price range.
Summary: All told, the Nikon Coolpix S220 offers about what you'd expect for the £119 price tag: satisfactory images, a useful feature set, and average battery life. It's a nice option if you're looking for a slim, low-cost camera, but you can get much better for only a little more.
