Nikon Coolpix S70 (Red)
Zippy, well executed touch-screen interface; great tap-and-shoot feature; attention-getting design.
Leisurely performance; battery charging done in camera might bother some; tricky to hold.
The bottom line:
The Nikon Coolpix S70 has a top-notch touch-screen interface and eye-catching design, but you're definitely paying for them.
This camera offers you complete touch control. The camera is easy to operate as long as you are comfortable with screen icons rather than text based menus. Picture quality is good in a lot of instances, but sharpness can fall off in more distant scenes.
