Product Description


From the Manufacturer

A slim, sophisticated digital compact camera, the Nikon Coolpix S7c packs good looks and great performance into compact dimensions, while offering the advantage of vibration reduction and innovations for in-camera image improvement.

Combining 7.1 effective megapixels of imaging performance with a 35-105mm (35mm equivalent) Zoom-Nikkor ED lens, the Coolpix S7c can capture everything from wide-open landscapes to tight portraits with outstanding clarity and true-to-life color. It features a large, bright 3.0-inch LCD monitor with a wide 170-degree viewing angle, enabling smoother composition and high-quality playback. The Coolpix S7c offers Vibration Reduction (VR) capabilities to compensate for camera shake and unsteady subjects for sharper, clearer results. High-Sensitivity mode selects the optimal setting up to ISO 1600 when shooting fast-moving or poorly lit subjects.

With a Wi-Fi antenna set unobtrusively into its stylish body, the Coolpix S7c supports wireless image transfer that can send pictures to a computer instantly, wireless shooting that sends each shot to a PC as soon as it's taken, and wireless printing to PictBridge-compatible printers. (Wireless printing requires optional Wireless Printer Adapter PD-10.) The Coolpix S7c is compatible with Nikon's all-new Coolpix Connect service that allows users to take pictures and send them to friends across the world in seconds, free of charge. Simply take the shots, select recipients from the in-camera address list, and send them straight from the camera's built-in Wi-Fi antenna via a Wi-Fi access point.

The Coolpix S7c also features a handy one-touch portrait button that acts as a shortcut to three unique Nikon image innovations--with Face-Priority AF automatically focusing on people's faces for satisfyingly sharp portraits, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix allowing photographers to compensate for unwanted red-eye effects in-camera, and D-Lighting rescuing underexposed images or shots taken with too much backlight. (Face recognition capability may be limited in some shooting conditions.)

The Coolpix S7c offers the in-camera entertainment of Pictmotion--a function that lets users select their favorite images and movies as well as music and visual styles, then combine them automatically in-camera to produce audiovisual shows that can be enjoyed anywhere on the large built-in LCD. The Coolpix S7c also features a new stop-motion movie function that create professional-looking animated movies.

The Cool-Station MV-15 that accompanies the Coolpix S7c is a handy cradle which enables batteries to be recharged without being removed from the camera. It also features a USB port and can easily be hooked up to a TV. Also included is a Dock Insert PV-11, which adds immediate direct-print performance with ImageLink-compatible printers.

The Coolpix S7c makes it so easy to capture high-quality images in any situation. The user simply selects one of 15 different scene modes that most resembles the situation at hand, and the camera will automatically adjust its settings to optimise on the current conditions.

The cutting-edge technology of the Coolpix S7c makes it simple for the user to take stunning photographs in any set of conditions and enjoy them immediately with friends across the world.

This camera is stylish, thin enough to be comfortable to carry in a pocket for entire day, has a large screen, but the performance is overall disappointing.

Battery life was hardly 100 pictures.
Focusing and taking a picture is very slow...usually more than 4 seconds when it has to use the focus assist light indoors. Everyone comments on that when I'm taking their picture. In addition, unlike most cameras that have multiple focus points (7,9,11,etc), this camera only focuses on the middle point of the picture by default. There is a nice feature that lets you manually move the focus point around to anywhere in the scene, but it takes a lot clicks and time so I don't bother using it.
The lens is not wide enough for daily use and most pictures come out very soft in the center with bad chromatic aberration and a lot of distortion at wide angle.
WIFI is slow and useless in all but the most rarest of situations. They should have just used Bluetooth so that anyone could use their phone to email the picture or at least be able to email/ftp directly to any email/ftp you want.
The screen smudges very quickly, but it's easy to clean and can't see the dirt when the back light is on.
The camera decides when the electronic VR (image stabilization) gets used and most of the time doesn't activate it. And even when it does activate it, it just increases the noise and the picture still comes out soft. There is an option to clean up the image after it's been taken, but the camera tells you that it's not able to do it for many images.
The camera corrupted my Sandisk ultra II sdcard, something that my former compact digicam didn't do in two years.

The movie mode, on the other hand is very good. The movie files do get fairly large...

-Small size and weight; Can fit into pocket or purse without feeling you are carrying a brick. Sleek design and large 3" LCD has 230,000 resolution, which means when you take a picture you can actually see how clear the picture is and you don't have to zoom in to see what it looks like. Not the case with SD 600/630. The new canon model coming out soon has highter resolution.

- Takes great snapshots with flash or without flash with plenty of light. Not for those that love to play with tons of settings and I would agree with previous reviewer that ISO settings worsen the quality of the picture. Adjusting the exposure isn't difficult and you would need to click through the menu to adjust it, but that's something that all digital cameras require.

-The color of the picture is more true to color than what I've experienced with Canon powershot A70, SD 600/630 and the flash isn't so powerful that it creates an unrealistic brightness or whiteness to people's faces. The flash creates an even brightness throughout the entire picture as opposed to just adding light to your face and leaving the background pretty dark

-Very easy to use; Very easy menus

-The picture isn't as sharp as the Canon SD600/630 when you take a picture inside without the flash and don't have adequate lighting, but it is perfect with the flash on.
-You have to hold camera steady and any slight movement might blur the shot, which is true of other digital cameras, but the Nikon s7c is a little more sensitive to that. Same thing with moving objects.
-Smaller buttons, but the camera is small and thin to begin with, thus, you can't expect to have a tiny little thing with large buttons.

I don't get all of the negative reviews about the S7c. I got one for Xmas and find it great. I had a Pentax Optio S (circa 2002) and the Nikon is a major step up in quality and features. I'm no photo geek, so I have pretty realistic expectations what a point-and-shoot digital camera is for and what it's limitations are.

I did tons of research and narrowed my choice down to the Nikon and the Canon SD630 (both have 3" screens). Among professional reviewers, the Canon did come out a bit ahead (e.g., cnet), but all of the professional reviews of the Nikon were very positive (and I don't have nearly as a discerning eye as the pros). I went with the Nikon because it has 7 megapixels (the Canon has only 6), I liked having fewer mechanical parts (no mechnical retractable lens), and the wifi seemed like the next big advancement in photo sharing.


1. Great photos in most conditions.

2. Large screen size.

3. Simple and intuitive menus.

4. Small # and good placement of essential buttons on camera.

5. Wifi is the best. It took some effort to get it set up (Nikon tech support was great), but once I got it going, downloading to my PC is fast and easy. I've also used the Coolpix Connect to send email to family and friends, and it worked seamlessly. Every camera should have wifi!

6. Pictmotion is a great and fun feature.


1. In some indoor light, the flash goes off when it doesn't need to, causing overexposure.

2. Nothing else to speak of at this point.


I'm really pleased with the purchase.
