Vibrant Clear Color OLED touch screen operation and advanced functions served up in style with the tactile sophistication of dual texture design

Nikon Coolpix S70 digital camera highlights
Featuring Nikon’s innovative Clear Color OLED display and a highly responsive capacitive touch screen, the Coolpix S70 is the smart and fashionable photographic tool that makes picture-taking a greater joy.

The Coolpix S70 introduces Nikon’s newly developed 3.5-incg Clear Color OLED Display with refined touch control that offers a new level of intuitive fingertip shooting control and a variety of exciting playback options.

OLED technology delivers the immediately recognizable benefits of vivid color reproduction, sharp contrast, and absence of afterimages. Nikon combines this with our own innovative Clear Color Display technology, making the large 3.5-inch OLED display a real eyeful. In addition highly responsive new capacitive touch screen technology adds the benefit of sure and immediate response at the lightest touch of the display’s surface for a fun and intuitive feel to every camera operation.

Nikon Coolpix S70 digital camera highlights
Advanced new shooting features that leverage this quick and easy fingertip control include Touch Shutter, which, at a single touch, releases the shutter after focus and exposure are locked on the subject. In addition, new on-screen sliders provide touch control over brightness (exposure) and Scene Effect Adjustment.

Touch control also makes viewing and retouching images more fun and efficient. The speed and ease of fingertip scrolling through images is matched only by the fun of using a pinching motion with two fingers to zoom in or out on displayed images, switch between thumbnail and full screen views, and so on.

High-performance imaging capabilities include 12.1 effective megapixels of sharp resolution matched to the compositional freedom of a precision 5x zoom Nikkor lens that covers focal lengths from 28-140mm (35mm format equivalent). Advanced digital image-processing faithfully reproduces fine details and subtle tones, delivers quick response, and maintains image quality and clarity when taking advantage of extended light sensitivity settings as high as ISO 6400*.

The Coolpix S70 features a slim body wrapped in a sumptuous dual texture design that pleases the eyes and the hands with its trendsetting good looks.
*ISO 3200 and 6400 are available only for image sizes of 3M (2048 x 1536) or smaller.

Nikon Coolpix S70 Feature Highlights

EXPEED digital imaging technology
Nikon’s smarter approach to digital imaging technology. From image capture to processing, Nikon’s comprehensive EXPEED digital imaging concept encompasses the entire picture-taking operation. EXPEED is much more than a processing engine; it is a revolution in digital photography.

New 3.5-inch Clear Color OLED Display with touch control
The Coolpix S70 introduces a new 3.5-inch, wide-screen OLED Display with approx. 288k-dot resolution. In addition to the immediately recognizable benefits of vivid color reproduction and sharp contrast, OLED technology also improves power efficiency and allows for a thinner camera design. New capacitive touch screen technology ensures sure and immediate response to finger action on the display’s glass surface. Other features include anti-reflection coating and brightness adjustment.

Five advanced image stabilizing features* for sharper results
Nikon Coolpix S70 digital camera highlights
VR image stabilization in action
Nikon's Hybrid Optical lens shift and Electronic VR image stabilization systems combine to help produce blur-free images. High ISO 6400** capability allows faster shutter speeds when shooting in low light or capturing fast-moving subjects. Motion Detection automatically controls shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for subject movement and camera shake. And, Nikon’s original BSS (Best Shot Selector) function automatically shoots a series of sequential frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus.
* The camera selects and uses only the features required to optimize each image.
** ISO 3200 and 6400 are available only for image sizes of 3M (2048 x 1536) or smaller.

Nikon’s Smart Portrait System with Skin Softening
Face-priority AF helps produce more satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure for as many as 12 faces in the framed shot. Skin Softening function detects and analyzes a framed subject’s skin, and then adjusts smoothness to produce enhanced results. Smile Timer automatically releases the shutter when the subject smiles, while its Blink Proof function shoots two sequential frames, then saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are widest open. Blink Warning presents an alert when it suspects that someone in the shot has blinked. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects any perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.

Intelligent automated shooting modes that promote carefree shooting
Nikon’s Scene Auto Selector makes it faster and easier to capture the moment by eliminating the need to manually select a scene mode to match the intended shot. This intelligent function determines the subject, analyzes the surrounding settings, and then automatically selects the appropriate scene mode for optimal results. Subject Tracking enhances the shooting experience by following the subject’s movement to ensure clear focus and quick response when that special shutter opportunity presents itself. Subject Tracking even functions if the subject moves out of the frame for a second or two.

Quick Retouch
Quick Retouch automatically adjusts the contrast and saturation of selected photos to create an enhanced copy with the right finishing touch.

Customer Reviews

Great features, very good image quality, size is perfect and is amazingly easy to use.

I returned it and purchased the Panasonic DMC-ZS3, and having now tried it out it beats the Nikon hands down.

It was almost impossible to take a picture without touching one of the icons on the screen.

Color Name: Red
I love everything about this camera, except.... it takes a terrible picture.

The good:
The form factor is great
I like the way you slide the cover to open the lens and turn the camera on. Makes turning on fast and easy.
The touch screen is great. Very easy to change settings. Screen is responsive. You can touch where you want to focus, which is really cool.
The ability to shoot in 16:9 ratio is nice, but you're limited to 8MP in that mode.

The Bad
This camera just wouldn't take a good picture. Outside in daylight I could get a pretty good photo, but anything indoors was poor at best. Even indoors during the day when there's decent light. After taking my first set of shots I assumed I must be doing something wrong, so I read the manual, tried all the different "scenes", I tried adjusting ISO, resolution, etc.

Granted, I'm a fairly novice user, so perhaps a more experienced pro could get a better picture out of this camera. I finally pulled out my old Canon SD200 3.2MP camera that I was looking to replace. I took many photos side by side. I never took the Canon off "auto" mode and I tweaked the Nikon a million ways. Virtually every time the Canon was sharper, and more color accurate.

So, I thouht maybe I got a bad camera. I went to Best Buy and tried their display model. You could see on the camera screen that the images just weren't that great. Maybe if I didn't have a side by side comparison it wouldn't have been so noticable, but I really expected this Nikon to be better than my very old Canon.

If anyone believes it's the operator and not the camera I'm more than open to advice, because I loved everything else about this camera. I did return it, but would buy it again if I found out it was just operator error, however, I really don't think it was my error.

The above reviewer hit the nail on the head, Great design, functionality, touchscreen is the only way to go...
But, the camera will not take a sharp photo. I took my card into the store and shot numerous people and signs at all iso's
and image styles and basically I got mush. I brought my card home and opened it in Photoshop and no amount of tweeking or sharpening could save these images. It boggles my mind that a company like Nikon will release such a camera.
Look for this $400 camera to be $125 by Christmas. Hint to Nikon, all the features in the world won't sell a camera if it won't take a decent image.

Color Name: Black & Black Verified Purchase
When I first read the specs on this camera I was very excited about getting my hands on it. I was especially interested in the OLED touch screen and the compact lens design. I went ahead and purchased the camera despite the mixed reviews it has received so far.

There are several problems with this camera. First, I took a number of shots both indoor and out on several settings and the picture quality is not very good. The pictures taken on my old 5 MP Minolta Dimage are far superior to this camera. Second, the design of the camera makes it almost completely unusable in normal shooting situations. The OLED screen takes up the entire back of the camera and is very touch sensitive. I found myself inadvertently activating functions without intending to. Also, the location of the lens is so close to the side of the camera my fingers continually ended up getting in the photo. So between the touchscreen and the lens location you end up with a continual camera holding balancing act that you can't win.

Overall a great feature set, but less than adequate picture quality and design. I returned it and purchased the Panasonic DMC-ZS3, and having now tried it out it beats the Nikon hands down.

Color Name: Red Verified Purchase
The new S70 lives up to all of the Nikon claims. Like most Nikon cameras I have owned, it functioned perfectly right out of the box. Having been highly disappointed with the previous S60, this new S70 seems to have corrected all of the shortcomings of the S60 and much more. The new OLED touch screen is a joy to use - sensitive and responsive. The screen visibility and clarity is excellent under all lighting conditions. Nikon also substituted a more robust battery which in combination with the OLED panel should extend camera use between charges.

Perhaps more important is the clarity and sharpness of the images taken with the S70. They are impressively sharp and clear under magnification. The menus are intuitive and easy to navigate. The touch screen focus and shutter release function is a nice touch. The simplified and enhanced in-camera cropping and retouch functions are well done and welcome additions. The Easy Auto mode handles very well all of the major camera settings and functions required for a good picture when a quick "point & shoot" situation arises. I would have preferred however an out-of-camera battery recharging system as I usually charge and carry a spare battery. I will be purchasing an external charger.

I have owned Nikon film and digital cameras for the last 25 years and I consider my new S70 to be a very worthwhile addition. It is stylish, functional, fun to use, and takes great photos. When you need a high quality pocket sized camera, you should take a close look at this one. I would highly recommend the S70.
