Sub-$200 cameras are very much a hit and miss. Nikon's September 2013 budget compact, the S02, is directed towards consumers looking for a trendy, pocketable camera. Except for the lack of wi-fi, the S02 operates very much like a smart phone with a touchscreen, built-in memory and non-removable battery. But, the camera also uses a sensor that's about the size of a smart phone's. The camera doesn't have any burst shooting and shutter speeds only reach 1/2000. The touchscreen, built-in memory and compact size is enticing for some, but consumers that own a smartphone with a decent camera should look elsewhere.
