'Purple fringing was evidenced rather more obviously than most between areas of high contrast - nothing new for a digital compact - and there was some loss of focus towards the edge of frame when shooting at maximum wide angle.'
'Start-up time is a little sluggish at around four seconds, most of that time waiting for the fat three-ring lens to motor forward to its 33mm extension.'
'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.'
'I like the idea of this interface, but the implementation is annoying, For instance, to change brightness, you must do the following: press Start/OK; arrow down to brightness; press OK; arrow up/down to adjust; press OK.'
'The most interesting Art Filters slow down operation (and make the movie mode virtually useless).'
'As well as the simplified controls and functions that may frustrate more experienced users who will be better off with an E-P1 or E-P2, some headline features have also been clipped.'
'This is a 12.2MP shooter, which is said to work well in low light conditions.'
'The new Nikon Coolpix S1100pj has in its heart a 40% brighter, 14-lumen projector with a built-in stand and a much improved 3-inch touchscreen that combines a simple control interface for access to menus as well as allowing you to touch a relevant area of the screen to focus at that point and quickly take a snap in a single touch.'
'In fact, it feels downright sluggish — this goes for the camera in general, too, as it has a relatively slow shot-to-shot performance.'
'The redesigned interface was simpler to navigate, but it didn't help that the 3-inch touchscreen is resistive, which makes tapping with fingers not as responsive unless we used the included stylus.'
