I was first given this camera for my birthday a couple of years ago, after it became clear that I was the only one interested in making photo albums enough, to want to actually photograph all of our familys memories. I've owned it for about 4 years now, and never had any problems with it. It was reccomend after a friend of mine owned a similar one and showed me her pictures from a holiday and they'd came out so clear, I just had to know how to get my pictures that good. Luckily, the Nixon Coolpix S220 was at hand to help make my pictures more clearer and just better looking overall.

The camera is designed to be quite compact, as it fits in the palm of my hand quite well or with the wrist strap that came attached to it, I can hold onto it a bit more securely. They come in a variety of colours, to suit any persons favourite colour or preference. The Nixon Coolpix has not tried to make a complex and difficult phone, as it has only minimal buttons, a 2.5 inch LD screen and a 10 megapixels lense with 3x zoom.

The buttons always respond quickly to the touch, especially the Picture button which can be annoying or a great thing as even if you lightly press it it will take a picture. There is also the playback button, recycle button, effects button and menu button. These are relatively small buttons, and add to the compact look of the camera.

There are many different settings available, although I hardly even use some of them! My favourite ones and the ones a just casual photographer will use are Image Mode, Continuous Shot (which gives you the ability to have several shots taken right after you have pressed the button to take a photo - using this can create great effects like if you take a cartwheel it shows the whole thing in one big photograph and each step is recorded!) and the Colour Option (which allows you to take pictures in different colours such as black and white, sepia or vivid colour)

The zoom is really good on this camera, as I have zoomed as far as it would go, and although it might get slightly grainy the picture quality is still great. Always remember to zoom up to the bar, as past that and it just becomes grainy! Navigating this was pretty simple, as there was a little rotary button which you could turn to make the lense go in or out, and even my mum could use it.

The quality of the pictures themselves is really good on this, as from landscapes to people, my camera has photographed everything, and it has came back with some really great results. It is much better than any other camera I had bought and as I usually get red eye in pictures, this camera has somehow stopped that from happening, which gives it extra points!

Being able to look back at all your pictures is pretty good, as it has allowed me to fastly browse through all my pictures and decide what ones need to go and which ones are staying. Also, by having a good delete button, I also have the ability to either delete single images, selected ones or the whole of what is included on my camera. Having this is really great if I need to make space for other photos fast!
