The Nikon Coolpix S80 is all about the screen. It's a 14.1-megapixel point-and-shoot camera with a 5x zoom in its slim frame, and the entirety of its posterior is home to a giant, 89mm (3.5-inch), OLED touchscreen.

The touchscreen lets you focus and snap a picture or video by tapping the relevant area on the screen. Other features include lens-shifting image stabilisation and the usual plethora of scene settings: there are 17 scene modes and assorted filters, like a fish-eye-lens or miniature effect. The camera can focus on up to 12 faces and deals with smiles, blinking and red-eye.

Video is present and correct. The S80 shoots 720p, high-definition video with stereo sound.

The S80 will come in black and red, and arrives on 7 October. It will cost £330.
