No good!

Gretchen, Amazon
30 July 2012
  • Summary: This camera is bad! I have gone through every single mode on this camera and can not get one clear picture. I did buy it refurbished so maybe it's a lemon. My camera phone takes better pics. I took this camera to a camera shop and they told me that the camera would be junk even if it was not refurbished. They told me I should give it to a kid to play with, a good starter camera for a kid.

Nikon S70 Disaster

George Bratton, Amazon
19 May 2010
  • Summary: In April I purchased a Nikon S70 camera in preparation for a two-week trip to South Korea and Japan. Not wanting to lug along a large format camera, I thought the Nikon S70 would be the perfect size. Besides, what better brand to purchase than a Nikon? Unfortunately, it proved to be an exceptionally poor camera. Had I read the reviews posted on amazon.com prior to purchasing the camera, I would have chosen something else.

3 months old and screen is half black

P. Oconnell, Amazon
31 March 2010
  • Summary: Gave this to my Grandson for Christmas; he just called me and said the screen was half black. I went on the internet and googled this complaint and found the third headline was about the same problem. I had told him not to ask for this camera because the reviews were not good. I have had nikon cameras since the 60"s and always felt the name Nikon stood for quality; not anymore.

Not handy, slow, dont like it

syl2004b, Ebay
9 January 2010
  • Summary: I was very exited to buy this camera, I needed a camera and I like Nikon Coolpix. That’s all I had in the last 6 years. I like new cool stuff, so I thought what can be better than a touch screen very cool looking slim Coolpix. It was a total disappointment. Its not fast, very difficult to use. You had to hold it in the left hand (and I am right handed) but than one of my finger always covered the flash. That’s not good.

Fuzzy S70

Palmer W. Agnew "longtime nikon user", Amazon
7 December 2009
  • Summary: I was intrigued by the Nikon S70's advertized automation features and iPhone-like interface. Of course, I first checked Amazon's reviews to see if thre were any gotchas. Several reviews told me to beware of fuzzy picture quality. Therefore, when I went to the local high-end camera store, I took along my old Nikon P5100 for comparison purposes. I took full-wide-angle pictures of the interior of the store with both cameras.

Poor Pictures. Poor Screen.

J. Sciabica, Amazon
6 December 2009
  • Summary: A camera should do 1 thing first: Take good pictures. Everything after that is a bonus. Unfortunately, this camera does not do the first thing, so everything else is irrelevant. I could go on about what the camera does well, but as I said, it simply doesn't matter. The one feature that I was most surprised with is the screen itself.

Disappointing

Gayle, Amazon
4 December 2009
  • Summary: Very poor picture quality. Can't believe it. My $100 Canon did a much better job. The quality of the pictures is similar to a disposable camera you buy at Wal-Mart.

Great features, disappointing results

Bob D., Amazon
31 October 2009
  • Summary: When I first read the specs on this camera I was very excited about getting my hands on it. I was especially interested in the OLED touch screen and the compact lens design. I went ahead and purchased the camera despite the mixed reviews it has received so far. There are several problems with this camera. First, I took a number of shots both indoor and out on several settings and the picture quality is not very good.
