“Bottom line is the Nikon Coolpix S710 is a decent (not great) camera with full manual controls and image quality you can use as long as you stick to ISO settings below 400.”

DigitalTrends reviews the Nikon Coolpix S710 and writes;
” the camera is good for methodical photographers who compose their shots and don’t mind waiting as the S710 saves image files. Just make sure you learn how to quickly adjust the screen when you’re in bright sunshine.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

CNET reviews the Nikon Coolpix S710 and writes;
“If it wasn’t so slow, the Nikon Coolpix S710 would be a very good high-end, full-featured ultracompact. “
Rating: ★★★½☆ reviews the Nikon Coolpix S710 and writes;
“I was impressed by the Coolpix S710. It is one of the better, smaller compacts… Picture quality is very good and I would happily buy this camera.”
Rating: ★★★★½

InfoSync reviews the Nikon Coolpix S710 and writes;
“S710 cranked out an awesome image performance, but at a small cost. We found most images to contain some degree of noise, whether it was unfocused, benign background fuzz or full-on in-your-face haze.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Nikon Coolpix S710 and writes;
“S710 is an impressive-looking camera with excellent build quality and lots of big numbers on the box, not least the price tag, the slippery handling, fiddly control dial and slow performance limit its appeal compared to some very strong rivals, and its indifferent image quality, with very limited dynamic range, poor colour depth and noise problems…”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Nikon Coolpix S710 and writes;
“A solid sturdy camera that is capable of taking great pics suffers only slightly from some fiddly controls and a menu system that requires you to do some digging to get the most out of it.”
Rating: ★★★★½ reviews the Nikon Coolpix S710 and writes;
“Despite its slow performance in some areas, the Coolpix S710 managed to deliver quality pictures. Shutterbugs who are looking for a shooter that offers more creative exposure controls should consider this point-and-shoot.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

RegHardware reviews the Nikon Coolpix S710 and writes;
“It’s a nice size and weight, offers a good set of features, is easy to use, performs well and it has some useful playback and editing features. If you’re in the market for a compact that’s a cut above the rest…”
