You can get a 12MP ultra-compact with decent image quality, but it'll cost you.

Nikon COOLPIX S700

 

Nikon's hi-res slimline compact is put to the test

Flatter to deceive in the way pictures turn out in relation to the specs.

Nikon's S700 isn't an incredible compact camera, but it does the job combining good pictures with a reasonable feature set, which will be fine for most consumers.

Good colour balance, noise low until ISO 400, very low shutter lag

Shots not always as crisp as we'd like, some haloing, quite pricey

Nikon Coolpix S700 Review

 

Nikon's 'S' (for 'style') series is the equivalent of Canon's IXUS or Olympus' Mju range, which means that fashion most definitely comes first. From the outside at least the silver-grey brushed metal, aluminum-bodied 12 megapixel Nikon Coolpix S700...

There are plenty of style-orientated digital compacts out there, so Nikon has its work cut out in trying to make an impact, especially as, slightly awkward to control â--controllerâ-- aside, everything about the solid-feel, metal build Coolpix S700 is...

Nikon Coolpix S700 Digital Camera - Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

Slim and compact, the Nikon Coolpix S700 is a capable, well-featured addition to the Coolpix line. Its 12.1-megapixel CCD captures high resolution images with excellent detail, and its 3x optical zoom lens produces clear, sharp images. A selection of...

Moderate blurring in the corners from lens ; Limited shadow detail under high-contrast conditions ; Chroma noise in the shadows at all ISO settings ; Slow Continuous shooting speeds, and slightly sluggish shot-to-shot times ; Chromatic aberration at...

Best of all, the Nikon Coolpix S700 offers all of these features in a very compact, very sturdy, metal case that slips easily in and out of pockets (even small ones, like the front pocket of a pair of jeans). The camera's large and bright 2.7-inch...

Nikon Coolpix S700: Small with Plenty of Options

 

Nikon's S700 is their 12 megapixel flagship slim point and shoot model, and it packs a lot of value for under $275 USD. How does it measure up in day to day use?

12.1 megapixels in a small, sturdy package ; Manual controls for ISO and exposure ; Plenty of flexible photo and video options

Images can be a bit noisy, even at ISO 400 ; JPEG rendering in playback mode is slow ; Image sensor shift for vibration reduction rather than optical lens shift

In terms of things I didn't like, there's not much on the list, but the first one is a big one: when you're previewing your photos, the camera first shows you a chunky, ugly image with a lot of JPEG compression artifacts, then about one second later it...
