Camera Review: Nikon Coolpix S7c18208255528NikonCoolpix S7cThere are cameras built for performance, and then there are cameras built for fun. The Nikon Coolpix S7c ($280 street) definitely falls into the latter category. That's not to say it doesn't take a decent picture, but it's the bells and whistle that are the marketing features of this member of Nikon's Style line. With a 7.1-megapixel sensor, a run of the mill internal focusing 3x zoom (35mm equivalent: 35-105 f/2.8-5.0), and a speckled gun metal grey body capped with silver accents, it's a good-looking slim digicam with a big 3-inch LCD. But the real selling point of this camera is the built-in WiFi and year's subscription to T-Mobile Hotspots, which together allow you to zap photos straight from the camera to your friend's e-mail address or favorite photo-sharing site. Throw in some other cool features like stop-action and time-lapse movie modes and you've got a cool camera perfect for the young, mobile, Web 2.0 crowd. Photo quality and performance are class competitive without setting the world on fire. As you'd expect, the S7c gets noisier as ISO increases, to the point where chromatic noise is very visible even on the LCD preview. This is typical of this camera class, but Nikon touts the eVR feature, or Electronic Vibration Reduction. Simply put, eVR is an ISO boost combined with aggressive in-camera image processing, which actually pumps the ISO into the noisier zone!
