Nikon CoolPix S200

 

Can this ultra-slim Nikon compete with Casio, Pentax and Olympus?

Nikon Coolpix S200 digital camera

 

The S200 impresses straight out of the box, it has a tough all-aluminium build and large screen that help make the new, slim line camera very nice to hold and to look at. Pleasing on the eye, it may be, but it also has some of Nikon's signature...

Stylish, image quality, screen, pricing, build, specification

No optical viewfinder, high ISO image noise, no manual shooting options, software based electronic image stabilisation

The S200 could be looked at as a Coolpix S500-lite, but that fails to recognise the excellent build and features that make the S200 an accomplished machine in its own right at a good price.

Nikon Coolpix S200 compact digital camera

 

One thing you can expect when you buy a Nikon-branded camera is great build quality, and the Nikon Coolpix S200 certainly lives up to its name. Weighing in at a pretty standard 125g, the Nikon Coolpix S200 feels meatier than some of its rivals. There's...

Nikon’s first attempt at a consumer compact is good. It has produced a good looking, good quality, good value camera. But with some strong competition, good is simply not good enough.

Nikon Coolpix S200 compact digital camera

 

Nikon its world-famous for its high-end, professional cameras, but it's always struggled to break into the consumer market where rival brands have a much stronger following.

Nikon Coolpix S200

 

The Nikon Coolpix S200 is a pocket sized camera with a simple design. It is one of the more easy to use cameras. In terms of features it has a fairly standard set up with seven megapixels and a three times optical zoom lens.

Build quality - Style - LCD screen on a sunny day

Picture Quality - Shutter lag with flash on

"The Nikon Coolpix S200 left me feeling disappointed. It looks good, feels good and is easy to use, but I struggled with picture quality. I would suggest having a good look at other pocket sized digital cameras before buying this one."

Nikon Coolpix S200 Review

 

Rebecca Bradley takes a look at Nikon's Coolpix S200, the ultra slim, ultra lightweight and stylishly designed compact with plenty of features enabling high quality, carefree snapshots.

Slimline and compact design; LCD panel easy to view in sunlight; Good results in macro mode

One touch portrait mode slightly too soft focus
