Summary: My Nikon Coolpix S50 review shows a digital camera that offers a nice mixture of features in a stylish camera body. The S50's two best features, a 3.0-inch LCD and a camera body measuring only 0.8 inches in thickness, give it an edge over many other models. Response times could be a little better, but this model will work well for a variety of photographers looking for an entry-level model.
Pros: Good overall feature list and image quality, LCD is big, bright, and sharp, Extremely thin camera body is a stylish model, Zoom lens never extends outside camera body, S50 compares favorably to other models in its price range
Cons: Camera body can be tough to hold without blocking lens, Response times could be a little better with the S50, Many other digital cameras have larger zoom lens
Excerpt: Stylish wave-surface design Nikon Coolpix S50 will show up in store beginning from April 2007. Optical VR Image Stabilization system, Face-priority AF, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and D-Lighting and one-touch portrait button that offers easy access to a selection of three innovative functions are the most important features of Coolpix S50. VR image stabilization and elegant styling confer a high usability as a pocket point-and-shoot camera.
