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.

Excerpt: When Nikon introduced eight new Coolpix point and shoot digital cameras with a February 2007 press release, a quick perusal of the individual models showed an interesting mix of features spread amongst the various models. The P5000 was definitely the alpha wolf of this pack, with 10 megapixels and a full set of manual controls to complement its suite of auto and programmed functions.
