Nikon Coolpix S100 Front and Rear Views

    Newer Older

    I'm not sure how many of you check out the type of cameras used on picture posting. If you do, you might have noticed that my last 18 pictures were all shot with this little beauty.

    Why, you might ask, have I taken a step back from the SLR type of camera that I've used for the last 40 or so years. Well, my Flickr-Mates, the answer is simple. I'm either getting lazy or getting old. A recent trip in January made me realise that I'm getting tired of lugging those big guy's around.

    So I started checking what is out there that is both small and packs some power and picture quality ability. When I came across this one I just liked it's looks and because it's on the new side, I couldn't find many reviews. So, I figured, what the hell, take a chance and then write your own reviews, Luckily for you all, I won't do that here. I'll only mention the size and a few details.

    First off, there is no lens that sticks out. It's zoom range of 24 to 140mm is all internal so the camera is just a hair thicker than 1/2 inch. Width is 3.9 inches and height is 2.6 inches with the weight coming in at 4.9 ounces.

    The screen is 3.5 inches and is the whole back of the camera and boy is it bright. You can actually see it in daylight. The picture I posted was taken in a bright sunny room. You can see the detail on the ceramic flowers shown behind as colourful bokeh.

    I feel the pictures are both colourful and sharp. You can form your own opinion on what I have posted.

    O.K. Enough. I'm not paid by Nikon nor would I try to sell this to anybody except to say, It really filled my wishes in being small and fits easily in any pockets I might have and it takes remarkable pictures.

    I have a feeling this will be my camera of choice.

      This is a very well laid out diptych. I like how you went about displaying the camera. Showing it, but also turning it into art.

      I hope you have better luck with your Nikon. I HATE mine, but as you say, much easier to carry around.

      We've had compact Nikon Coolpix(es) for a few years now and have always liked them.

      How wonderful! That is a bright screen for sure! I've never owned an SLR, but it's a fun fantasy. I love sticking my camera in my pocket when i need my hands free.
