Coolpix S70 is a great and very unique digital camera!

By 

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Nikon - Coolpix S70 Digital Camera:

I have been wanting this camera for a very long time and finally got it as a Christmas gift.  I love how it is a touch screen.  It has so many setting on it that I am still learning new things about it almost every time i use it.  I am the kind that does not like to ready manuals.  I like to figure out and discover things on my own.  

This camera has a face tracking feature and can also let you know right away if it detects that one of your subjects may have blinked in the picture you just took, so you can take it again right away.  It also has a unique feature where you can touch something moving on your screen and it follows it, as long as it stays within your viewing screen.  It also has a feature that lets you write messages on the screen with your finger.  This feature is nice BUT at the same time, when you use it, it looks like a kindergardener is who wrote the message.  It does not come out to be very neat looking.  I wish it had a key board you could actually type your message on it that way.  There is literally only one button on this camera and it is the one to take the picture, which you really don't even hardly ever have to use.  You can double tap the screen and take the picture that way (on most setting).

This camera has many, many other awesome features.  You should read up about every thing it offers and see if this is a camera for you.  It is a bit pricey but well worth it.

Easy to carry, slow to click for action photos.

By 

from Burlington, WI

Comments about Nikon - Coolpix S70 Digital Camera:

Good camera for general use, but not for those special pictures you want.

Performance
Once you push the button there is a delay before the picture is actually taken, this is frustrating for me. I am missing candid shots.

I love, love, love this camera!!

By 

from Doyline, LA

Comments about Nikon - Coolpix S70 Digital Camera:

My husband surprised me with this camera for Christmas--by far the best gift he has ever given me!! He chose the red, which I love. The screen size is awesome; it takes up the entire back of the camera. The only thing I don't like is touching the screen to take a picture because it hesitates. There may be a way to adjust this, I haven't really looked yet; I just use the button instead. Also, you have to be careful not to put your finger in the way of the lens. Other than that, it's awesome! It takes beautiful pictures. It's the perfect size, very compact. It has a fun feature that lets you draw with your finger on a picture that you have taken. We've given people a lot of mustaches! You can either save the drawing or erase it. I haven't figured out all of the technical tidbits yet, but I plan to.

Nikon COOLPIX S70 a cool way to take pictures!

By 

from Pearson, GA

Comments about Nikon - Coolpix S70 Digital Camera:

This camera is very cool. I love it when people come up to me and ask me about my camera. They don't like the price but I would rather say that you are paying for what you want such as quality, the outer appearance and the touchscreen display.

By 

from New Port Richey, FL

Comments about Nikon - Coolpix S70 Digital Camera:

Before purchasing this camera, I read a lot of bad reviews.  I was captivated by its tech-knowledge and brought it any way.  I find the photos to be beautiful.  However, this camera is not a simple point and shot.  You do need to have some knowledge of photography basics, like film speed and best lighting options.

I love the large screen on this camera!

By 

from Makawao, HI

Comments about Nikon - Coolpix S70 Digital Camera:

The absolutely best feature of this camera is the enormous screen that takes up the entire back of the camera.  There are no buttons on the camera - everything is done on the screen.  You move between pictures by dragging your finger across the screen.  You can also zoom in or out by moving your fingers together or apart on the screen.  My sister and I got this camera as I sometimes have problems with my hands.  We really liked the sreen and you can take a picture by just touching the screen.  The downside is that by touching the screen or using the shutter release button, there is a short delay when taking the picture.

Transferring photos from the camera to my computer is easy and quick.  There is a cable that plugs into the USB port on the computer and then to the camera.  It's also handy for recharging the camera with the computer if you've lost the recharging plug that goes into the outlet like I did.  The camera looks great and even though the lens seems small, the pictures it takes looks great.  It is also extremely easy to turn on and off - by sliding the lens cover down or up.
