It keeps amazing me that Nikon can make such incredible SLRs especially in the last couple years, but can't make even a competitive compact or P&S camera. Do they have completely different technical teams on each product category? How can they be so good at in camera noise reduction on an SLR but a compact looks snowy like that at "relatively" low ISOs? Even their flagship P6000 gets trounced by the Panny LX3 and Canon G10. Pathetic. They need to step up or take their ball and go home.

I dont normally write on these review sites but I feel I must tell you about my experience with this camera.





I currently have a 5 year old Nikkon E4200, (4.2 Mega Pixels) I thought it was getting on a bit so I would treat my to the newest Nikkon. I bought the S230 and used it to take pictures of my new daughter when she was born.





All the pictures were grainy and out of focus, I have since tried it on all different settings etc over the last month and I conclude by saying this is the worste camera I have ever born.





I have since got my money back and I am sticking to the old camera.





After researching more on the net it turns out I have been dupped into thinking the higher the Mega Pixels the better the picture quality!.





Please dont be suckered into buying this great looking camera with the fantastic touch screen as the picture quality is TERRIBLE!
