Nikon Coolpix S80

 

The Nikon Coolpix S80 is Nikon's latest touchscreen controlled digital compact that features a 14-megapixel CCD sensor, a large, high-resolution (819,000 dots) 3.5-inch OLED touch sensitive screen and a 720p HD movie mode with stereo sound. The Nikon...

Image quality, styling, ease of use, high resolution screen, HD movies

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

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...

Nikon Coolpix S80 review

 

Is beauty more than skin deep with the Nikon Coolpix S80?

Stylish design ; Large OLED touchscreen ; Image quality at high ISOs

Touchscreen could be more sensitive to inputs ; Slight colour fringing in some situations

'S' means Style in the Nikon Coolpix range, and following on from the S70, the new Coolpix S80 brings improved features to the mid-range compact camera market with updated styling.

Nikon Coolpix S80

 

The Nikon Coolpix S80 is a great idea. A simple, touch controlled pocket camera that looks extremely stylish. There are features I like too such as the extra large LCD screen size and its clarity. The Coolpix S80 can also shoot High Definition movies,...

Ease of Use - Clarity of LCD screen - Small size - Very stylish looks

Dark corners to photos - LCD screen unresponsive

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....

The Nikon Coolpix S80 is a stylish product that's compact and unobtrusive, but is the picture quality just as good? John Riley finds out.

Touch-screen, stylish and feature packed: the Nikon S80

For the tech-savvy shooter who wants the latest gadgets and appreciates a stylish design, the lack of manual settings on this camera might not be an issue

Nikon Coolpix S80 review

 

Can this touchscreen-enabled, HD recording gadget-lovers dream fulfill its promise?

Simple to use, takes decent photos, bright screen

Sluggish touchscreen, ineffective stabilization

The touchscreen may be a let down, but the image quality isn't half bad and the camera is extremely easy to use

Nikon Coolpix S80 Preview

 

Along with the S7000 and S8100, Nikon also announced a new touch screen camera, the Coolpix S80. With a sleeker design than the S70, the Nikon S80 has a sliding front sheath that activates the camera when uncovering the viewfinder and flash. When the...

The Nikon Coolpix S80 is an undeniably stylish point and shoot camera that features a love or hate it touchscreen interface, with only one physical button on the entire camera. The S80 represents a big improvement on the previous S70 model, although...
