Summary: I've just started using the Coolpix S70. So far so good. I haven't had any problems like some of the other buyers who wrote reviews. I had read the other reviews before the camera arrived, so I was a little apprehensive. THe photos come out clear and crisp with no problems holding it steady. The one thing I have to be careful about is to remember to keep my fingers out of the way of the lens.
Excerpt: My husband surprised me with this camera for Christmas--by far the best gift he has ever given me!! He chose the red, which I love. The screen size is awesome; it takes up the entire back of the camera. The only thing I don't like is touching the screen to take a picture because it hesitates. There may be a way to adjust this, I haven't really looked yet; I just use the button instead. Also, you have to be careful not to put your finger in the way of the lens.
Excerpt: The Nikon s70 is really worth the price. I know that people may say that spending $300 on a digital camera is crazy, but you definitely won't be disappointed with the purchase. I bought the Nikon s70 simply because it had the touch screen, but have discovered so many more cool features that it has. You can crop and edit photos right on it and I think that that is a great feature. The quality of the pictures is phenomenal.
Excerpt: The absolutely best feature of this camera is the enormous screen that takes up the entire back of the camera. There are no buttons on the camera - everything is done on the screen. You move between pictures by dragging your finger across the screen. You can also zoom in or out by moving your fingers together or apart on the screen. My sister and I got this camera as I sometimes have problems with my hands. We really liked the sreen and you can take a picture by...
Excerpt: This camera is very cool. I love it when people come up to me and ask me about my camera. They don't like the price but I would rather say that you are paying for what you want such as quality, the outer appearance and the touchscreen display.

Excerpt: Before purchasing this camera, I read a lot of bad reviews. I was captivated by its tech-knowledge and brought it any way. I find the photos to be beautiful. However, this camera is not a simple point and shot. You do need to have some knowledge of photography basics, like film speed and best lighting options.
Pros: All FUNCTIONS of this camera work just fine. Touch screen is flawless, flash is great...etc.
Cons: This thing has ALWAYS taken miserable pictures in any and all conditions. Tried to get assistance from the manufacturer, distributor and the seller and basically told to stuff it up my nose. Almost $400.00 bucks down the drain.
