Nikon Coolpix S70 Disappoints, Despite OLED Touchscreen

Nikon's Coolpix S70 promised to be a point and shoot built with a love reserved for high end smartphones—very thin, and packing a 3.5-inch OLED multitouch screen. Alas, Nikon forgot about one, tiny detail, the photography itself.

According to Photography Blog's early review, the $300ish S70's somewhat low resolution OLED wasn't found to be much better than an LCD for viewing images, especially in direct sunlight when it's still not bright enough. As for the photos themselves, they were only of "average quality," with a particularly noisy ISO even at conservative settings. Too bad. [Photography Blog via Engadget]
