The Nikon Coolpix L810 offers a lot of specs at a low price. If you need fast shooting performance, though, you'll need to spend more money.
Nikon offers a little bit of everything in this update to its pro full-frame camera series.
A new sensor, autofocus and metering system may make this an action-shooting master.
The Nikon D5300 is a great choice as a general-purpose dSLR.
The S8200 will easily slide into a pocket despite its 14x zoom lens, and will deliver photos that are worthy of the family album — most times.
We're primed to get excited about the camera that cracks Wi-Fi, but the Nikon Coolpix S51c sadly isn't it. An average point-and-shoot with some lens issues, the S51c has some well-implemented wireless features but is let down by the fact that it can't connect very often
The D300s is a fast, reliable workhorse for the semi-professional or amateur photographer, and it feels great to use and makes picture taking a real pleasure. But if you don't need HD video, you might want to try the plain old D300 instead.
The Nikon 1 V1 is more capable than the J1, but the body lacks its sibling's finesse and we're not sure the extra features justify the higher price. Nonetheless, the V1 produces some of the sharpest, most detailed shots we have seen.
While it's too large to fit inside a pocket, the P7100 provides all of the functionality and quality that you could need. It's a shame that its performance is not class beating, otherwise it would easily make a great companion to an SLR or ILC.
A lot of cameras get called "unique", but the Nikon Coolpix S1000pj aptly lives up to this tag as it hosts a built-in projector. It's definitely a novelty and fun to use, we just wish image quality was better.
If specifications were all that counted, the Nikon Coolpix S8000 would be right up there with the best compact superzooms, but its 14.2-megapixel sensor produces mushy, over-processed detail, and its 10x zoom is second-division at best. It's not that expensive for a compact superzoom, but it's not that good either
The S2500 is a respectable cheap compact that loses marks for its basic feature set and standard images.
Considering the length of the zoom, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ62 is a very inexpensive camera. It's fast and produces output that's very good on the whole, but close examination reveals compression in images and there's a fair amount of grain at high sensitivities. But if you can accept some small compromises, the FZ62 will likely do all you need.
Point the compact Nikon Coolpix L26 at a well-lit scene and it'll reward you with bright, realistic colours and plenty of detail. We noticed a few imperfections and we'd like to see the price cut, but it's a good buy for the less experienced photographer.
The Nikon Coolpix S9100 is a solid compact camera that's easy to use, fast and good in low light. But if you want the extra reach its 18x zoom provides, be prepared to stretch your budget -- if not your pocket -- accordingly.
The Nikon Coolpix L19 is very similar to the Coolpix L20, but about £30 cheaper, which really changes the equation. The lower specs don't matter in a camera designed for budget-conscious beginners. The L20 looks expensive for what it does, but the L19 is spot-on
The Nikon Coolpix S3100 is easy to carry, use and look at. But its image quality is pretty average, and you don't have to look hard to find other cameras that offer more features for less money.
The Nikon Coolpix S100's performance doesn't quite live up to its looks, and, while this compact camera is packed with features, its price is too high for our liking.
