Nikon Coolpix S200
Advantages: small, light, robust and very easy to use .
I love taking photos but I am the first to admit that I am not very good at it. Most of the pics I take are just holiday snaps or pics of the family but I tend to have my fair share of blurry photos and heads cut off, although not so much now. I recently bought the Nikon Coolpix S200 as my old camera had become very aged. This camera is so easy to use it has helped me take a better class of photo straight away.
It has a fairly full range of features which will no doubt take me a long time to learn to use but if you already know your way round a camera will be very useful to you. The camera is a 7.1 mega pixel which I wont try to explain but will tell you that even when zoomed in on your pc or printed in a much larger size will still provide very clear images. It also has electronic Vibration Reduction which helps you to get photos which are not blurry by steadying the picture should you move a little when taking it; this feature has helped me greatly.
This camera like most takes an SD memory card to allow you to store many pictures at a time. It has a 3x optical zoom and a 4x digital zoom allowing you to capture far away images very clearly. One of the reasons behind me choosing this particular camera was its size and weight. It is small enough to fit neatly in my handbag or even in to a pocket, it is very light too although very robust at the same time.
Here is a list of some of the cameras main features.
Choice of 15 scene modes
Macro shooting enables shooting from as close as 10cm (3.9 in.)
Menu available in a choice of 20 languages
List by date
Calendar function make it easy to locate a recorded image
Selection of movie recording modes
SDHC card compatibility
Approx. 20MB of internal memory
Red eye reduction facility
There are of course many more features but to list them all would not make for good reading.
I would recommend this camera to people who love to just pick up their cam and snap away as it has an automatic function which sets itself to the correct options for the conditions. There are however enough options and things to fiddle with to make this camera useful to the more adventurous photographer too.
The image quality of the pictures taken with this camera are excellent and it is so easy to use and to connect to your pc that it should definitely be looked at if you are in the market for a new camera. It cost me £145 from a local store and came with a 2 years warranty which is from the manufacturer so I guess is standard.

Summary: A great little camera that is easy to use and takes great pictures.
