'However, for all its strengths, the camera's photos (and video for that matter) just aren't that good.'
'The camera's speed of operation is quite average but on the plus side the auto focus is one of the quickest in this test.'
'Unrealistic colour reproduction.'
'One slight issue we had is the fact thereÃ¢??s a dearth of direct controls on the body, frustratingly so even for ISO for example; the fast routes into flash, exposure compensation and macro shooting are the norm, but while this is a feature-rich camera, a lot of its best bits are hidden in menus.'
'It is a shame though that Nikon has not addressed some of the few annoying ergonomic faults of the D3, including a somewhat convoluted menu system, inconsistent placement of some shooting/custom settings and an all too easily pressed vertical 'AF-ON' button.'
'I personally feel the the ISO button is poorly placed (other buttons can be reprogrammed though).'
'Colours are vivid, while the large size means you can crop effectively without loosing detail and at a number of different settings both inside and out we were very happy with the camera's performance.'
'focus and reviewing images will be difficult, as the S710 doesn't have an optical viewfinder.'
