Nikon Coolpix S10 preview - Part III

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Saturday 26th, August 2006

As the Nikon Coolpix S10 has a tilting lens, it follows that the LCD screen can also tilt. The camera consists of two halves when tilting. The Nikon S10 has a large format 2.5 inch screen. It is hard to remember the days when 1.5 and 1.8 inches at the most were the standard size in a digital camera. The Nikon Coolpix S10’s LCD screen has an extra large viewing angle of 170° and the combination of tilting lens and extra large viewing angle means you can take photos from practically every angle with the Coolpix camera. It is also handy for showing saved pictures; whether you want to look at the pictures straight on, from the left, right, above or beneath, they remain clearly visible.
