Conclusion: Its performance isn’t the best, and its image quality won’t give you museum-quality enlargements, but when taken for what it is – an extremely durable and easy-to-use camera – the S31 is a success.
Summary: We need to look at the Nikon Coolpix S31 for what it is - a cheap and cheerful waterproof camera that's designed for everyone in a household to use, from young children to grandparents. With that in mind, the S31 is very well thought out.
Excerpt: Nikon's website describes the S31 as a camera for all the family. We'd say it's more accurately described as a camera for children. Its toy-like appearance isn't likely to appeal to mums and dads, but the sub-£100 price will. So too will the waterproof, dustproof and shockproof design.
