Nikon Coolpix S70 -- an excellent, slim camera

Nikon Coolpix S70 is an excellent camera with 140g of weight and thin size of 2.4x3.8x0.8 inches. It has impressive, smooth touch screen functionality with very responsive and beautiful 3.5 inches OLED screen with aspect ratio of 16:9. Camera is slim in design, has stylish body, good color quality display, gesture support, nice natural colors and many desired features.

Coolpix S70 has 12.1 Mega pixels of resolution and 5x NIKKOR zoom with f/3.9 to f/5.8 aperture and 28mm to 140mm of focal length. It is a pocket sized camera, available in four colors and all of its controls are digital touch screen except shutter release and sliding cover. To best balance the saturation and contrast, there is quick retouch functionality and Its D-lighting feature works well to improve upon the underexposed images.

Camera's Easy Auto feature helps to take fast and quality pictures under various conditions. Other modes are movie mode that can shoot 720p of HD video at 30 fps, Auto mode from where one can control exposure, AF type, ISO and white balance; and Scene mode with various scene options. There are many shooting controls in camera like Effect adjustment and Touch Shutter. One can choose the subject and try auto tracking or use Select Touch Shutter feature that allows focusing and shooting with both hands.

File formats supported by camera are JPEG for images and .AVI, motion JPEG for video. There is an internal memory of 20MB with optional slots for SD/SDHC cards and Hi-Speed USB interface support. Camera is powered by Li-ion batteries that can shoot 200 pictures with single charge and is supplied with accessories such as USB cable, A/V cable, Software CD, rechargeable batteries with charging unit and strap.

Nikon Coolpix S70 playback supports framing, flipping and pinching in/out feature. Portrait system is smart and skin softening. Image brightness can be adjusted uniquely through slide bars in all scene modes that are good for night conditions. Video quality is impressive with digital zoom option. S70 has five image stabilization features with both electronic and optical stabilization. It has various drive modes for motion like Best Shot Selector, Multishot 16 and Single shot. Best shot can shoot the sharpest image at 10 frames while Multishot 16 can combine 16 different shots in one image grid.

On negative side, video does not support optical zoom, playback stilts a little and there is a color shifting at ISOs above 800. This makes camera more fit for landscape and portrait shooting. Overall, at price of about $400, Nikon Coolpix S70 is a good bet due to its compact size, excellent quality and logically laid menus with touch screen functionality.
