  • Summary: The Nikon COOLPIX S80 is a 14 megapixel slim compact with a 5x stabilised optical zoom lens and a 3.5 inch OLED touch-screen. Lauched in Sepetember 2010 it replaces the COOLPIX S70, adding 2 megapixels to the sensor resolution and substituting a 5x zoom with a 35mm equivalent wide angle in a slimmer redesigned body with no physical controls other than the shutter release and horizontally sliding front cover.
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: I like the idea of the Nikon Coolpix S80. It is an extremely slim and stylish digital camera. The fact that the LCD screen can control every single function also sets this camera apart from the majority of touch controlled compact digital cameras. Overall picture quality is very mid division though. The problems of the dark corners and the unresponsive LCD screen means that there are other touch controlled digital cameras I would suggest buying ahead of this one.
  • Pros: Ease of Use - Clarity of LCD screen - Small size - Very stylish looks
  • Cons: Dark corners to photos - LCD screen unresponsive

Nikon Coolpix S80 review

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S80 is stylish and simple to use but looks pricey, yet it’s as close to a point and shoot camera as you’re likely to get given the lack of hard or “proper” buttons and its auto snapping features. You really can switch it on and start snapping. Handling issues such as fingers intruding over the lens and the scratched finish and screen are problematic, and the fact the image noise intrudes from ISO 200 and above is a disappointment.
  • Pros: Image quality, styling, ease of use, high resolution screen, HD movies
  • Cons: Stereo microphones pick up mechanical - and handling - noise, all encompassing touchscreen control, no dedicated “play” button, screen prone to marking, slide away cover can collect dirt and scratches the finish
