Nikon Coolpix S7000 Review
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 would mostly appeal to the casual photographer and the ardent traveler. It’s a compact and decent camera that any holiday maker would love to own. Being a consumer product, it doesn’t offer pro level functionality and this keeps the price down for anyone looking for something to take their holiday pictures with. It packs all the features that you would expect from a camera on this tier. It comes with a decent design, quality lens, the right price range and some few extra features for casual photography.
One of the highlights of this camera is its 20x optical zoom lens. It is a good lens for casual photography. The Nikon Coolpix S7000 does not allow for a lot of manual control but gives you only what you need. You’re able to change a few settings here and there like the autofocus and the lens sensitivity. In addition to this, you’ll be able to access a wide range of digital effects that would come in handy when you want to create a mood in a shot. Moreover you can play around with panoramas and of course a few extra features like video creation.
When still at video creation, the camera is able to record full HD videos. Although recording full HD video is not a unique feature anymore, it’s still good to mention this especially with a compact camera like the Nikon Coolpix S7000. In the connectivity department, the Nikon Coolpix S7000 comes with inbuilt NFC and Wi-Fi. This fixes a number of exceptional as well, but they are still useful especially when you want to remotely control your camera. However, the Nikon Coolpix S7000 doesn’t have a touchscreen which we feel should have been important especially for smartphone users.
The Nikon Coolpix S7000 is ultraportable and can easily fit in your shirt pocket. It also has a decent build and aesthetic appeal. The button arrangements are decent and practical. This means that you can easily access the settings without affecting your shot frame. The 20x optical zoom lens should do pretty well in a wide variety of situations. If you would like something that gets you the best shots in the size of a smartphone, the Nikon Coolpix S7000 got you covered. It will definitely get you better composed shots than a smartphone and the picture quality is also amazing. However, I would strongly advise against using the zoom lens if not necessary. There is a considerable amount of quality loss when you zoom in. All in all, the lens works very well under low lit conditions.
At the end of the day, you need to make a decision and getting the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is a good idea. This is not an enthusiast product given the limitations in manual controls. However, you would still use it when you don’t have your pro camera with you. It’s a decent camera that you can easily carry around and take photos with acceptable image quality. It is an ideal camera for holidaymakers and casual photographers.
