Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S4150 is priced at £129.99 and given its feature set and the attractive styling and build; it's a relative bargain. The image quality is on a par with other cameras of this ilk, nothing to shout from the rooftops about but good enough for most tasks. Given the price the touch screen is a real bonus when snapping quickly or for providing improved flexibility over capture options.
Conclusion: This is a good camera to sling into a bag or to quickly pack away for the beach, coping well in most ordinary, every day situations. However, using the touchscreen is frustrating for those used to the ease of something like the iPhone, which will be enough to put some off, but if you can live with the stylus this is a good all round camera.
Excerpt: In terms of innovation, the Nikon Coolpix S4150 is one of the less interesting new models from the recent launch. That's not to say that it's a camera that should be swept under the carpet and forgotten about. In profile, the S4150 is a slim and pocketable model with curved ends that then bulk out to house the touch-screen LCD on the back. It would look nicer if the black plastic back wasn't present, to give the camera an ultra-thin exterior.
Excerpt: The S4150 features a 14 megapixel sensor and a 5x optical zoom lens which is a 35mm equivalent of 26 - 130mm. On the rear of the camera is a 3 inch touch screen allowing you to control the camera and select your point of focus.
Pros: Extremely compact, Keenly priced, Good colour reproduction, Responsive touch-screen, Available in a range of colours
Cons: 10cm minimum focus distance for macro shots, CIPA rating for battery is fairly low, Noise significant from ISO 400 upwards
