Editor's Review

The Nikon Coolpix S7c improves upon the already slick line of wireless digital cameras with some startling new features. The S7c allows for wireless image transfer like previous models, but the Coolpix Connect service takes things a step further. With Coolpix Connect, a free service, users can instantly e-mail photos to friends via an in-camera address list, provided they are in range of an open Wi-Fi access point. Truly remarkable. The S7c also has Face-Priority AF, ensuring crisp portraits of your friends and family.

Don't buy (Gunter Geladi — 05/29/2007)

White circles in the image when using flash. It could have been a nice camera, but how to use a camera without flash??? I will try to return it and exchange into another one. For this kind of money I'll have a lot of choice with better quality.

Excellent Camera (Oscar — 04/03/2007)

This camera takes excellent low light pictures. Also all the added features are a bonus. I love the WIFI connection makes transferring pics to my computer easier and you don't have to mess with cables. Large LCD screen a plus when looking through the pics. Small, compact. The only con to this camera is the battery life. With all the auto blur correction and anti vibration going on and the flash the battery does not last long. The only fix is buying an extra battery.

75% of images taken by this camera are ruined by white blobs, white halos, white circles, white comets (Sudhir Lath — 03/21/2007)

75% of images taken by this camera are ruined by white blobs, white halos, white circles, white comets, or other white artifacts that cover portions of the image. They show up randomly, with little rhyme or reason. Appears to be some sort of camera design flaw that allows flash light to bounce around inside the lens system. The artifacts move around in location from photo to photo, and are not the sort of thing you can fix easily in a photo editing program, so it's a deadly flaw, particularly when they pock-mark your subject's face. When this problem was brought to notice of Mr David Dentry, General Manager, Technical Support , Nikon Inc, he wrote "Our engineers have studied the problem at length and it only happens when there is particulate in the air. Smoke, water vapor, dust, etc. I am not implying that your area is dusty because a single piece of dust in the air can cause this. Again, there is nothing else we can do. Sorry." but as per my observations the spots are appearing in the very clear air conditioned environment also.

I like it... (Diesel — 02/18/2007)

So far, so good. The Sc7 takes amazing pictures in a variety of modes. The display is awesome. The Wi fi is a bonus. We just wanted a compact camera that takes good low light pictures. The high ISO allows that. It is very small and did not come with a case of any kind. Although the docking station is okay. If you have big hands, the camera is hard to hang onto, so don't drop it! Overall, it seems to be a quality camera. Plus, it's a Nikon!

Not happy at all (Josh Pollock — 02/02/2007)

First off the wifi was very poor.The picture quality wasn't the best. My last complaint was the movie mode. there was an annoying buzz and then audio didn't match the picture at the end. DON'T BUY THIS CAMERA!!!!!!

impossible to get a good flash photo (Steve — 01/26/2007)

As much as I hate to give this camera a 1 it really needs it. EVERY picture I have taken with the flash has had orbs in it and not just 1 or 2 i'm talking 10+. Initially when I first started taking photos and noticed it i thought it was just dust floating around in the air that when the flash went off it picked up but thats not the case. I believe the flash being so close to the lens is the main fault in the orbs, like I said every single photo i took with the flash had at least 5 very noticeable orbs in it. once i knew it was a problem i found it very hard to look past them please as much as you might be a Nikon fan like myself, do not buy this camera!

Dissapointment (Steve — 01/24/2007)

The pictures came out extremely fuzzy and filled with noise. I was really dissapointed about that.

Plus, the wifi was nice, but useless. It could have been set up so much easier!!! You don't connect to a network, you must connect to a computer with a network, not directly with a wireless router, so If you go over somebodies house and want to send birthday pics to her/her mom, you must wait till you get home.

It's ok, but NOT worth the price.

Nikon S7c (Aaron — 01/14/2007)

This camera is truly one of the most amazing tools that probably could have ever been created! First of all, the pictures come out amazingly clear and are very easy to see on the 3" LCD screen. There's not very many buttons and the camera is very easy to use. It has big features, even though it is a small, slick camera. It has vibration reduction, and anti-shake, which both almost completely reduce blurs. It has a scene mode which has 12 different choices for you to chose from, giving you the best shot under certain conditions, for example; party/indoors, fireworks, nature, portrait shots etc. The camera has a great video mode, and audio recordings with very high quality sound. One of the most amazing features on this camera is WiFi, (the ability to transfer pictures wirelessly to your computer with just the push of a button!) You can also create great in-camera slide shows, and set them to music, and it's very easy and it's a fun way to show pictures to friends and family. If you buy this camera, you'll definately get way more than your money's worth.

The one to own (Jonathan Lourie — 01/07/2007)

This camera is fantastic. Its a pleasure to use. The large screen makes taking photos more enjoyable. The wifi is not that great and you still cannot email directly from the camera on your home wifi. The shots are perfect. The zoom is brilliant. I love the special mode. Too many good things. Enjoy !!! Get a longer life battery and fast SD chip to increase the photo taking experience.

verrrry nice (megan — 01/01/2007)

I love this camera, because the extremely huge screen. It's very nice. Although it takes what feels like forever to take the picture. By the time it took my picture the person i was sitting by got up and now i have a picture of his butt. It's a funny picture, but not what i wanted. The pictures it takes are amazing though, i took a picture of a piece of paper and you could read every word. The zoom is amazing also. But the red light that shines before the camera flashes just makes your eyes close. A lot of my pictures look like I'm on something. Well I haven't had it long enough to know anymore about it.
