Nikon Coolpix S200 Digital Camera Hands On First Thoughts
by Howard Creech -  5/14/2007

For decades Nikon was the camera of choice for photojournalists and serious amateur shooters, but Canon has done a much better job since the beginning of the digital era - especially when it comes to creating fashionable and easy to use ultra-compact digital cameras.  That may be about to change.

Nikon’s new Coolpix S200 is a stylish, ultra-thin, and eminently pocketable 7 megapixel digital camera with a large 2.5" LCD screen, a 38-114mm (35mm equivalent) Nikkor Zoom, eVR (electronic vibration reduction), a High-Sensitivity mode, intuitive controls and logical menus, good battery life, Face-priority AF, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, and Nikon’s proprietary D-Lighting function.

The S200 is tough enough to go just about anywhere and simple enough to be used effectively by just about anyone.  The snazzy little S200 (like the original 35mm Olympus Stylus) is the sort of pocket camera a professional photographer might carry for grab shots and to record personal images while on assignment.
