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.
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.
