Nikon Coolpix S230

Digital Photography Interface
23 September 2013
  • Conclusion: It’s probably the only camera in the ‘entry-level’/budget group with a touchscreen: it’s the Nikon Coolpix S230. The Coolpix S230 is a 10 megapixel, ultra-slim camera that packs a 3X optical zoom lens and 3 inch touchscreen. And it’s priced at $200, about half the price of other full-fledged touchscreen cameras on the market.
  • Pros: Decent image quality till ISO 200 for medium sized prints, Slim design and affordable price, Responsive 3 inch touchscreen display, Nice, well-implemented touchscreen interface, Smart Portrait, motion detection and auto scene selection features, Lots of playback Retouch tools
  • Cons: Cheap lens with below average sharpness and a lot of color fringing (chromatic aberration), Camera doesn’t show a lot of information in shooting/playback, Crummy low-light autofocus, Lacks real image stabilization, Below average battery life, Movie audio sync problems

  • Excerpt: The Nikon COOLPIX S230 is another entry by Nikon in the budget camera section. The S230 comes with a 3 – inch touch screen which will make it an upper hand in its category because not many cameras of this range run on a touch screen interface.

Nikon Coolpix S230 Review

Digital Camera Review
23 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Assume these things when considering the quality of the Nikon Coolpix S230 : the potential buyers for this camera are not looking for a high-end, near DSLR quality compact. They are looking for a camera with a little flair, but they don't want to sacrifice decent image quality. They want a nice set of specs, like the S230's 10 megapixel CCD sensor and 3x Nikkor zoom lens.
  • Pros: Warm, generally neutral colors, Flashy 3.0 inch touch screen, Attractive build and design, Reliably speedy performance
  • Cons: Images are noisy from low ISOs on up, Some corner softness and fringing in shots, Only packs a 3x zoom, Some weirdness with the Scene Auto Selector

  • Pros: Excellent touch screen, impressive feature set, stylish design
  • Cons: Touch screen costs $100 (compared to CoolPix S220 model)

  • Excerpt: The entire range of Nikon Coolpix cameras are physically well designed and appealing to the eye and the 10-megapixel S230 is no exception.
