Hands-on Preview posted for Nikon Coolpix S7c|
(Friday, December 8, 2006 - 16:30 EST)
The Nikon Coolpix S7c taps into some smart electronics to compensate for the compromises inherent in small camera design.
As a result, the Coolpix S7c is as attractive for its image quality as it is for its styling. The hidden benefit is that you can send the images from any T-Mobile HotSpot to anyone with an email address. With no buttons or levers protruding, the Nikon S7c easily slips into a pocket so it's with you when you want to take a picture. And when you light up that 3.0-inch LCD with your images, it's even more attractive.
Between capture and playback, the Coolpix S7c provides a lot of picture-taking intelligence. The ED glass makes the most of the Nikon S7c's small lens, and the Feature System provides Nikon exclusives like face detection auto focusing, in-camera red-eye removal, and D-Lighting. The Scene modes are easily accessed, especially Portrait, which has its own button. Everything else is fun to find with the rotary multi-selector.
In short, the Nikon Coolpix S7c is a smart choice. Click for more on the Nikon S7c.
