Conclusion: Nikon continues to lead with its wireless digital cameras. That said, the company's cameras are still a bit tricky to use, and the Coolpix s50c is a perfect example of this. In addition, it won't win any awards for performance.
Pros: Excellent wireless features. Good price for lots of special features.
Summary: Despite a few shortcomings, the S50c has a lot to recommend it – its image quality in particular. If the Wi-Fi option isn’t something you envisage using, then going for the S50 instead will save you £40.
Pros: Optical Vibration Reduction, image quality, ISO range.
Cons: Wi-Fi has minimal benefit, menus not intuitive, LCD quality.
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S50c is the WiFi equipped version of the Coolpix S50. The S50c sports the same slim form factor, 3 inch LCD, 7.2 megapixel resolution, 3x optical zoom, and optical Vibration Reduction. Just add an 802.11 b/g wireless radio to the S50 and you get the S50c.
Pros: Nice 3 inch LCD, Optical Vibration Reduction (image stabilization), Useful (if you actually plan to use it) wireless features, Slim and stylish
Cons: Sluggish operation, Mediocre battery life, Zoom rocker switch too small, LCD is very prone to fingerprints, Noise increases rapidly as you increase ISO
