Sun March 18, 2012

Nikon Coolpix S30

Nikon Coolpix S30

Readers are always asking us to recommend a digital camera safe for kids. It is exciting when your kid starts to get bitten by the photography bug. It is time to give him or her a camera. For small hands, you need big buttons and easy to understand and use controls. You also need something tough enough to survive little accidents and bumps. Enter the Nikon COOLPIX S30 [QuickPrice Check], aimed squarely at young children.

The Nikon Coolpix S30 features 10.1 MP (1/3-in. CCD), 3x optical zoom (29.1-87.3 mm equiv.), closeups to 5cm, and is built to resist shock when dropped from heights of up to 80 cm (2.6 ft), to resist water up to depths of 3m (10 ft), and resist dirt, making it safe (enough) to use at the pool and around water. It accepts two AA batteries. Alkaline batteries should be good enough for approx. 240 shots and Lithium batteries for approx. 700 shots.
