'Of course, there are plenty of people who can overlook its imperfections in exchange for the heaps of wow factor the P100 packs. '
'So, if you want a camera that gives you lots of gimmicks to play with in a compact package the Nikon is a good choice.'
'The Nikon Coolpix P100 is a major step forward in terms of banishing the bane of the compact camera - image noise - though it does look fairly pricey. '
'The 3in tilt-adjustable LCD on the back of the Nikon Coolpix P100 and the huge extending lens are the only aspects that seem out of place on this otherwise well-proportioned camera - and these are hardly complaints. '
'The S80 is very well made and it is highly likely that the superb anodised finish will be hard wearing.'
'The S80's camera body is very thin, measuring only 0.7 inches in thickness, and it's a stylish-looking model with six body colors.'
'The viewing angle was excellent, with no apparent loss of contrast or colour shifts when not viewing the display straight on; this is excellent news for those who like to shoot at waist level or from above the head.'
