Anyone using the Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera?
 
I'm looking for a small compact digital camera that fits in my jersey or jacket pocket. Anyone using the Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera? Any thoughts? Any other suggestions?

I bought my wife a Nikon L18 last summer and I am very happy with the quality and speed. It's $93 on Amazon right now.

I own a Nikon S210
 
I like the little camera and have taken it with my in my jersey pocket on many rides. It is small enough to slip into a small ziplock to protect it from a surprise rainstorm or when you pour water on your head on a very hot day. :rolleyes: It is really easy to use, for quick shots with other riders or a stranger shooting for you.
I bought an extra battery for longer rides and have yet to need it but I am glad I have it. I have an extra SD as well and a great little camera bag too. If I am touring I can keep them all together on my Nomad. The problem with the camera is that it is not easy to use in low light and the zoom is very long. Having said that I have had to buy another SD or two and give them to my daughter so that she can leave my photos alone. She swipes my camera all the time for Facebook and other stuff.
I now also use the camera every day on my job taking photos of inventory and damages and other things that have to be proved. It has a date and time stamp that is very handy. The only things I find I want more of is zoom and low-light performance. Up close in the daylight, its wonderful.
My site has a few photos I have shot with the camera. Hope this helps.:ride:

I have one and like it a lot. I got it about a month ago and it's gone with me on every ride. Takes pretty good pictures and is small enough to not notice in my jersey pocket. Come to think of it, I haven't had to recharge the battery yet either.

Here you go. I haven't read this yet although the Nikon Coolpix S210 your looking at is included in a group review of ultra compact cameras by Digital Photography Review. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/Q408slimgroup/

Thats the premium review site on the internet for digital camera reviews.

Great cam for the money ... I love mine :thumb:.
Also check out the Pentax Optio S12.http://www.beachcamera.com/shop/prod...&sku=PKOPTS12K
Very small and you can get a remote shutter control that will work
with it for like 4 bucks SHIPPED from "dealextreme." http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5483
Very handy at times and both will fit easily into your pocket.
