LetsGoDigital has a hands-on preview of the new Nikon Coolpix S3. In the report they also compare the Coolpix S3 to the new Sony DSC-N1.
For me the winner in the comparison of specifications and features of those two new compact digital cameras is the Sony DSC-N1. The DSC-N1 is only 1cm3 larger in volume, but 5g lighter and of course featuring a higher resolution with 8.1MP, more zoom and a larger LCD screen. The report on LetsGoDigital is mainly about the Coolpix S3.
"The Nikon Coolpix S3 is a logical step from the last model, the Nikon Coolpix S2. Nikon has lifted the resolution to 6 Megapixels and therefore leaves the 5 Megapixels behind and with it the lower resolution class. At this moment, various manufacturers do have a stylish designer camera in their assortment with resolutions ranging from 5 to 8 Megapixels. The concept of the Coolpix S-series seems to have settled in strongly and I may say: the design is very successful. The size is ideal for taking the camera with you in your smallest sized pocket. Personally I find the Nikon S3 the perfect combination of Design and Ease of use, with an excellent size LCD monitor and a beautiful and user-friendly design at the same time. What more do we want...? "
