  • The Nikon Coolpix S30 is an inexpensive, family-friendly waterproof point-and-shoot that's best used outdoors in good lighting and with slow-moving or stationary subjects. If you need more than that, be prepared to spend more than $120 on a different camera.


  • The Nikon Coolpix S30 is a waterproof camera that is easy to use and designed to survive being dropped and generally treated in a less than ideal way. This makes it ideal for families or those with small children, especially as it's design makes it very easy to use. The camera is good value for money and while it does not feature many controls, it should keep the point and shoot user happy with bright colourful photos that will be good for web use or prints up to A4.

    Overall, we think that the Coolpix S30 offers an affordable weatherproof option for shutterbugs on a budget. Despite having a smaller feature-set than its tougher AW100 brother, its low price makes it attractive to users who want something hardy without breaking the bank--from frugal, globe-trotting backpackers to parents looking for their child's first camera
