Nikon Coolpix S80

CNET

  • Summary: Its minimalist exterior makes the S80 Nikon's slickest Coolpix compact camera yet, even though its touchscreen can make for fiddly operation at times.
  • Cons: Easy to accidentally hit the wrong icons on the touchscreen; disparity between colours on the touchscreen and those in downloaded JPEGs; images prone to over-exposure on sunny days.

  • Summary: If you like large and sharp touch screen displays on your camera, my Nikon Coolpix S80 review showcases a camera that will fully meet that requirement. The S80's OLED (organic light emitting diode) display is one of the best you'll find. Unfortunately, some of the S80's photographic features and camera controls aren't as impressive as the OLED. For example, the camera's zoom only works through the touch screen, which isn't efficient.
  • Pros: Large OLED touch screen is very sharp and very bright, Sharp looking and thin camera, with several color combinations available, Focus is sharp and accurate on close-up photos, Menu structure makes sense and is easy to use, HDMI slot included for uploading 720p HD video
  • Cons: It's easy to shoot inadvertent photos because of shutter button placement, No zoom dial; all control of zoom lens occurs through touch screen, Only 16:9 ratio resolution is 8MP, Lens is easy to block with your finger, Price seems a little high

  • Pros: Big, bright, contrasty OLED screen., Compact, stylish and functional design., No physical controls., Simple on-screen controls.
  • Cons: Poor battery performance., Modest 35mm maximum wide angle., Modest 7cm macro distance., Poor continuous shooting performance.

  • Excerpt: The Nikon Coolpix S80 is a very well built ultra-compact camera. The elegantly simple front plate features a sliding lens cover, with the camera powered up by sliding the lens cover sideways, a move that exposes the lens, flash and AF assist lamp, and readies the camera for action in less than two seconds. There is no dedicated on/off button  - a sensible design solution, as it would be redundant anyway.
