Conclusion: I like the Nikon Coolpix S510. The camera does a good job and achieves what it sets out to do. This is to be a simple pocket sized camera that takes decent photos in most situations. Shutter lag times could be improved and if you are looking to buy a camera to take snapshots of active children or pets this is a drawback.
Pros: Ease of use - picture quality - simple design
Excerpt: Squeezed into the S510 is an 8.1Mp sensor with a 35-105mm 3x optical zoom lens that includes Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR) anti-shake system. The S510 has a wide ISO range of 64-2000 to suit a broad range of shooting situations and although there is a range of scene modes to select, there are no manual input options like shutter priority.
