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.
  • Pros: Cool design; slender but solid; large and responsive touchscreen; records 720p high-definition video with stereo sound.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Ease of Use - Clarity of LCD screen - Small size - Very stylish looks
  • Cons: Dark corners to photos - LCD screen unresponsive

  • 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.
  • 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
