Nikon coolpix s80

The Coolpix S80 with its smooth lines and touch screen is clearly marketed at those who embrace technology and style.

The layout will make it ideal for beginners, or those who just want stylish, easy, photography. Image quality at high ISO settings more than makes up for its minor shortcomings.

The majority who buy the Coolpix S80 will not be disappointed as it performs well in most of situations and at £299.99 gives good value for money.
