Excerpt: Stylish, very slim, compact wave-surface design, the Nikon S7 and S7c look good, fell good and perform good. Features: Electronic VR – electronic vibration reduction – compensates for camera shake to deliver clear, sharp results.
Conclusion: Nikon takes the lead in the wireless-camera race by including some novel features on its cool new shooter, such as the ability to e-mail your photos directly from the device. Still, it's far from perfect.
Pros: Easy-to-use Coolpix Connect e-mail feature. Attractive design. Excellent 3-inch LCD screen. Nice price considering all its abilities. Very good image quality.
Cons: Some wireless functions can be confusing. Performance could be better. Noticeable shutter lag. Can't e-mail full-resolution shots.
Excerpt: Camera Review: Nikon Coolpix S7c18208255528NikonCoolpix S7cThere are cameras built for performance, and then there are cameras built for fun. The Nikon Coolpix S7c ($280 street) definitely falls into the latter category.
Excerpt: The Coolpix
S7c ($350) is the update to the Coolpix S6, which
was one of Nikon's first cameras to support Wi-Fi.
The S7c supports Wi-Fi too -- in fact, it's been
enhanced over its predecessor.
Pros: Compact and stylish metal body, Built-in 802.11b/g for wireless photo transfer and e-mailing (though see issues below), Huge, sharp 3-inch LCD display with nice viewing angle; screen is visible in low light, Tons of scene modes, In-camera help system, Handy D-Lighting and Best Shot Selector featu...
Cons: Significant blurring around edges of frame; vignetting; images overall on the soft side, Above average barrel distortion at wide-angle, Redeye (despite the fancy removal tools), Slow and clunky Wi-Fi implemention, Misleading "VR" branding on camera/box; it's nothing more than a post-shot sharpeni...
Summary: The Nikon Coolpix S7c was announced back in August, along with the S9 and S10. The S7c stood out from its brethren because it looked different and Nikon was really working the “style” edge just a bit more with this camera, announcing limited edition cases ready for the holiday buying season.
Pros: Very good image quality, Nice 3 inch LCD, Stylish and well built, Useful, and fun when using wireless features with the Coolpix Connect service
Cons: Battery life is average, Controls may not suit all people, Glossy finish and large screen are fingerprint magnets
Summary: On paper the S7c has almost everything you?d want on a point-and-shoot camera and it delivers too, as long as you don’t enlarge the images too much. Under close scrutiny, over-zealous processing and noise reduction turn fine detail to mush.
Pros: Styling, Extensive feature list, Good handling and performance
Cons: Loss of fine detail when enlarged, Poor ISO 1600 performance, Strangely, no red-eye fix
Excerpt: Super slim, stylish and sexy – Duncan Evans is none of these, but he takes a look at the svelte-beauty from Nikon anyway.
Pros: In summary the positive points of the Nikon S7c are:, 7Mp resolution, Big 3” LCD, VR anti-shake, A shed-load of scene modes, Looks great, Video options are extensive, Wi-Fi Mode for sending pics
Cons: The negative points:, Noise is apparent from ISO200 upwards, ISO1600 is appalling, Autofocus isn't good in just-below ideal conditions, Face-recognition flatters, Handling is iffy, Scene modes automatically change the ISO
Excerpt: Le Coolpix S7c est le successeur du S6. Les principaux atouts du S6 ont d'ailleurs été conservés : design sympa, finesse (2cm), grand écran LCD (3"), la connexion sans fil WiFi (qui a d'ailleurs été améliorée mais reste trop lente) et l'objectif 3x périscopique (qui se déploie à l'intérieur du...
Pros: Design et compacité, Ecran 3" très précis, Connexion WiFi (même si elle reste très gadget)
Cons: Gestion du bruit, Pas de stabilisation au niveau de l'optique
