Nikon 26174B overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon CoolPix S70 is a compact, narrow-profile point-and-shoot digicam that along with its pocket-friendly design features a 12.1 megapixel CCD sensor and a bright, 3.5" OLED Touch Panel screen that allows you to adjust the exposure and tonal values, as well as focus the lens and fire the shutter by merely tapping on the camera's screen.

The S70's 5-way Vibration Reduction (VR) system compensates for up to 4-stops of camera shake when shooting at longer shutter speeds. The S70's VR system also increases the camera's shutter speed and adjusts the sensor's ISO sensitivity levels as needed under low-light conditions (up to ISO 6400). For trickier shooting scenarios, the camera's Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically captures up to 10 rapid exposures and selects and saves the best of the lot.

Aside from terrific still images, the CoolPix S70 can also capture 720p video clips @ 30fps with sound, which can be played back on your computer or TV for all to enjoy.

In the creative department, the S70 features an Auto Scene Selector, which can automatically detect up to 16 picture scenes and set the camera accordingly. And for shooting portraits, the CoolPix S70 features a 3-level skin softening mode, in-camera red-eye reduction, Face-priority AF for up to 12 faces, as well as Smile Shutter and Blink Warning functions to ensure everybody is smiling and wide-eyed in every picture.

3.5" High-Resolution Touch Panel OLED Screen
The CoolPix S70's 3.5" Touch Panel OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) allows you to control the camera's functions by simply tapping on the screen. You can also focus the camera and fire the shutter with a gentle tap of your fingertipas well as perform subtle tonal adjustments by simply moving touch-sensitive sliders across the camera's screen
5-Way VR Image Stabilization
Nikon's Hybrid Optical and Electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization system compensates for the effects of camera shake for sharper, clearer pictures when shooting under low lighting conditions, or location where you cannot use flash. At the same time the camera's Motion Detection system automatically detects moving subjects and adjusts shutter speed and ISO settings to compensate for camera shake and subject movement. High ISO ratings (up to 6400) helps ensure sharper results when shooting in low-light or capturing fast-moving subjects

By using the touch screen sliders in various scene modes, images can be modified as desired. You can also take advantage of Nikon's Best Shot Selector (BSS), which automatically captures up to 10 images, and then selects and saves the best picture of the bunch

    Nikon 26174B reviews

    CoolPix S70 Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool design My reason to buy this one was primarily that I gave my two year old Sony away, and looked for a cool gadget slide-in-shirt-pocket point and shoot camera replacement. For my more serious pics I use Nikon 5000D. This one wins on design and functionality, plus a large crisp display. Don't try to hold this one as most people grab their camera. In such case your fingers will be the main focus you will get. So, cut the fingers on your left hand - or try something different. Best is probably to held it with left hand thumb to the left and the left hand other fingers on the right side. A little awkward to begin with, but it works.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from all about the impressive touchscreen We bought this camera in large part to the attractive advertising. However, it has lived up to the initial promise with the only slight flaw in our experience due to the shutter lag when relying on computer in the camera to decide when to take the picture. First of all, this is an impressive camera because of the OLED display- and the touchscreen software that runs the camera. touching the screen to focus on an area and take the picture is a new and exciting way to interact with your photography. The screen is large and clear and makes framing and taking pictures fun and exciting. The pictures turn out quite well. The face recognition technology is also quite impressive. The only issue I have with this camera and this certainly is not a new {or uncommon} complaint for digital cameras - is that when it is on full auto- there is a significant delay between pointing on the touch screen and the camera releasing the shutter to capture the image- the smile that you thought you were getting- has gone. Pressing the shutter release button on the top of the camera old school style is faster- but the delay when using all of the new tech that this camera has is disappointing to say the least. When not in this computer intensive mode- the delay is actually pretty good short for a comsumer grade point and shoot digital camera.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Cool Pix Indeed If you are a casual shooter, this is a good camera to keep but definitely not for an avid shooter. The electronic flash produced inconsistent exposure in dimly lighted rooms. I had great difficulty keeping my fingers away from the touch screen zoom. I returned mine. I wanted something simple and reliable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First rate camera! This camera is more like my 'Droid -- everything on a touch screen. No endless layers of obscure menus. Help at every level. What more could you ask? Also takes great pictures.
