Nikon Coolpix S710 review
Mar 14, 2009

Basically a very good camera but somewhat overpriced in Australia. Solid buld but the metal finish is prone to scratching. Good sized LCD is visible outside. Picture quality is very good but noise is visible in shadows at ISO100 however can get away with printing up to ISO800. The jump to ISO3200 just decimates picture quality and these settings and above should have been omitted.

I like the flexibility of aperature and shutter priority modes, the shift function on the program auto, and the full manual controls. This is probably the smallest camera to offer this level of flexibility.

Battery life seems OK but I don't appreciate the battery indicator that only appears when the battery is low. The menu system is not the best arranged, but once you get use to it, easy enough to live with.

Lens quality seems filne and nice to start at 28mm even if distortion a bit hgh. Fairly good at handling CA and the colour and metering seems close enough most of the time.

A good all-round camera.
