Excerpt: Now to start off with a review. Ok, this camera is decent for it's $100 dollar pricetag. I mean if it was more and the quality was like it was now, i would start complaining. It's definitely fun to play with. That's for sure. You can change language settings, adjust lighting, variety of flashes and many more. I like it personally. Plus it's a touch screen! That's fun to play with for sure. Zooming in on pictures, well its different for when you are zooming.
Excerpt: We own the Nikon D60 digital camera, but there were times when it not convenient to always have the big camera bag lugged around with us. We needed something smaller that would get the job done. We went with the Nikon Coolpix S230 10 MP digital camera. It has a 3x optical zoom and a three inch touch screen. We have used it a lot, and for the most part, it gets the job done. For everyday situations, where the lighting is not odd, the pictures are spectacular. Every...
Excerpt: The day before my husband and I left for our honeymoon, we went to the store to check out digital cameras. With our recently acquired wedding money in our pocket, we wanted to spend enough money to get a decent camera but also wasn't too extravagantly priced. We debated between a few cameras that were in the same price range and finally decided on the Nikon coolpix S230. We really love this camera and have been happy with our purchase.
Excerpt: This is a pretty good little digital camera for on the go. It's easy for me to keep in a small purse or in the diaper bag for daily pictures of my daughter. I love the touchscreen features of this camera the most. It's a sleeker design on the back than with so many buttons to choose from. The menus are clear and concise, easy to navigate. The picture quality is pretty decent for the camera's size and price range.
Excerpt: Bought this camera for my 6 yr old son for Christmas. It was on sale at target.com for $67 shipped, a great price for a mid level camera. I wanted to get him something he could grow into, not one of the kid cameras that would get maybe a years worth of use and be jumk to him. The size is perfect for his hands and the screen size is great. I was surprised to see so many features on this camera including video. I think it is cool that it has the smile feature. Focus...
Excerpt: My wife and purchased our Nikon cool pix S230 shortly after our wedding in 2009. We went on our honeymoon two days after the wedding so the new camera really came in handy. One of my more favorite qualities of this camera is that it has a touch screen. Compared to other cameras that I've used this camera is a little faster. The picture quality had come along pretty far since the last time I bought a camera, which was two years earlier.
Summary: I used an old Fuji 4.1 megapixel Finepix for 5 years and grew pretty comfortable with it. When it finally pooped out on me, I wasn't sure what to get to take it's place. I started looking around for something that wasn't too pricey, was simple and fun to use and maybe even had a cute color to it. I wanted to be able to take pictures of kids who move around a lot, but it didn't have to be the most fancy camera in the world.
Summary: I got this for my husband for xmas and he loves it. He has used it constantly since he opened it and has enjoyed it. He has no regrets he chose this camera though I don't think he has even discovered all there is to it. I like the fact that it came with a case.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Love the touch screen, Small / Compact
