Summary: I was using a Nikon S3 until it's lens failed without warning. I chose the S7c because besides the S3 it's the only small digital with decent macro capabilities below the expensive full size SLR models. So far the S7c appears to take high quality photos on par with the S3.
Everyone needs to slow down. This is a GREAT camera

Summary: I am a semi-professional extremely serious recreational photographer and I run a successful photography website and have sold several photos that were taken on this camera. I own a mess of DSLR's ranging from Canon to the latest and greatest Nikons.
Summary: PRO: compact, small and flat. Large viewing screen. Versitile Handles 8gb SD cards Better than not having a camera but a full size Canon ESO or Nikon D80 are the way to go for real picture quality in fast bumpy conditions like wakeboarding. Con: Video is at a low resolution.
Summary: I received this camera as a gift from my husband who had been listening to me say I wanted a smaller digital camera to capture the everyday moments of our three kids. I previously had a Canon Powershot G3 which I loved, although it was bulky and hard to carry around when I had my three small kids...
Summary: Excellent camera. I've been buying and testing so many cameras until I found this one, VR great plus,good pictures on low light, good color quality, 3 inch display, fits in my pocket, lots of features...love it, love it. Great looks too
Summary: I had a Minolta DimageX that died after several years of abuse and great photo's. So looking for a new camera I selected the s7c to use as my next pocket camera based on all great early reviews from the photos sites.
Summary: I've bought like 3 or 4 Nikon Coolpix S7c, and i've seen the camara has a good funtion but after use for sometime appear on the screen a little point like a lens scratch, this point no is a lcd dead pixel, is a problem on the lens, no is a significative problem, but exist.
Summary: Not a good camera. Terrible in low light. Terrible focusing in low light. Just, all in all, a bad camera. Invested so much time in the whole wireless feature, forgot to perfect the basic camera necessitities.
Summary: I've always been high on Nikon products but can't stand this unit. Yes it takes fair photos and has all the flexibility anyone can expect in a camera. The bigest and most serious drawback is the inability to view anything on the screen on a bright, sunny day.
Summary: I have been searching reviews of the Nikon coolpix s7c to make sure that it wasnt just me - and I am finding that indeed countless other reviewers are having the same problem, and many have taken it up with Nikon only to be told 'sorry'.
