CNET.com posted a review of the new Nikon Coolpix S4 today. This 6 megapixel camera features a compact design, swivel lens design, and a 10x optical zoom. All this for under $400. So how did the Coolpix S4 hold up?

Pros: Simple operation; face-recognition autofocus; excellent red-eye prevention; time-lapse capabilities.

Cons: Few manual controls; limited shutter-speed range; movie clips at only 15fps.

Conclusion: The Nikon Coolpix S4 resurrects the company’s classic swivel-lens design with modern touches, including lots of scene modes and in-camera fixes for common problems. Image quality and performance seem a bit old-fashioned, however.

Rating: 6.6 / 10
