  • The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a simple camera but it offers quite a few useful features which make it appealing, and with a 20x optical zoom, perhaps particularly to those who want a camera to take with them on holiday.
    Although it doesn’t offer full manual control, at least you can change a few key settings (such as sensitivity), and handily, the autofocus point.
    It’s also quite a fun camera to use, with a nice range of digital effects, the ability to create panoramas and other nifty features such as the ability to create a video comprised of short clips with an added soundtrack.


  • A basic but well-specced camera that's worth considering if you're looking for a long zoom compact that will let you capture pleasing images on your next trip with the minimum of fuss.
    Offering a neat little package for your money, the S7000 performs well and boasts some useful features that will appeal to those looking for a simple family or holiday camera.
    The Nikon S7000 offers versatility and value for money.


  • The Nikon Coolpix S6900 is a compact camera with a small sensor and average resolution for its class. Yet it has enough style in terms of unit design and feature implementation to catch the eye of the casual observer, plus a couple of tricks up its sleeve (flip down ‘arm’/stand and swivel LCD) that should appeal to the self-portrait obsessed generation, or those simply wanting a simple-to-use snapper with the advantage of retractable 12x optical zoom.


  • A range of decent features including a 12x optical zoom, touch sensitive articulating screen and inbuilt Wi-Fi and NFC are let down by less than fantastic image quality.


  • With its swivelling touchscreen, gesture control, built-in stand and front-facing shutter button, the Nikon Coolpix S6900 is a fun camera for taking selfies. And it's much faster than its predecessor. But if you're looking for a 12x compact, there are many others out there that will give you better picture quality for a lower price.


  • With Wi-Fi, GPS, and an OLED display, the Nikon Coolpix AW120 is one of the better rugged compact cameras you can buy, but it's not quite an Editors' Choice.


  • So should you buy a Nikon Coolpix AW120? As far as its features go, it’s up there with the best cameras in the toughened compact class. Its GPS geotagging and world map navigation are useful for the aspiring adventurer, as is the compass, altimeter and depth gauge. The AW120’s Wi-Fi capability is a little more limited, but nonetheless a welcome inclusion.


  • A good compact camera with plenty of features, but only really worth the price if you need its waterproof, shockproof qualities.


  • There's been some worry recently and murmurings of smart devices taking over from cameras and compact cameras disappearing entirely. It seems that cameras such as the Nikon Coolpix S810C are designed to give you the feature-set of a smart device with the better image quality of a phone or tablet. It works too, Nikon have given the camera a fantastic sensor and noise reduction facility. It really does help to demonstrate why a larger sensor is better.


  • As soon as we started shooting with the Nikon Coolpix S5300, we could see what the image quality was going to be like. The pictures look very over sharpened on the screen, but aren't as bad when viewed on a screen. Saying that, they are still sharper than we prefer, but this completely personal choice. The slim design is perfect for slipping into a pocket while not in use.
    The Nikon Coolpix S5300 is a breeze to use with many features either close at hand or very easy to find.
