|Nikon Coolpix S10 - Stabilisation|
According to Mark Goldstein: "Like other current Nikon compacts, the Coolpix S10 has trouble getting sharp images in less than perfect light, though with VR on constant activation, the S10, for me, delivered much better results than the (VR lacking) S9 under similar conditions. However, if in doubt, the Nikon S10 is over keen to fire the flash to compensate, which is thermonuclear in its intensity. Even when the built-in flash is used, the S10 doesn't always get it right when pre-focusing the shot, and I found it trickier than it should be to achieve a sharply focused image under artificial light."

Mark continues: "The Nikon S10 undoubtedly functions better outdoors, choosing to underexpose to preserve detail if it's bright. On close inspection there is some purple fringing visible between areas of high contrast, though the Nikon Coolpix S10 handles this perennial problem better than some competing compacts. At maximum wideangle verticals do begin to lean and bend, but again this is no worse than illustrated by rivals. Colours were a bit cool for my liking left on standard setting, with the vivid option lending some much needed pep on a dull day, though of course these could always be boosted in Photoshop."

Mark Goldstein started his very active website PhotographyBLOG in January 2003. At first the one and only purpose was to let this site function as one of those popular web logs with Photography as main topic. But as we all know Photography is a pretty big subject to publish about so Mark decided to focus on some hot key points like mentioning all new introductions, reviews, reports from events like PMA and Photokina, sharing some impressive and creative photos and Mark's sole perspective of his feeling about this fascinating world of Digital Imaging. Mark is based in the UK, but his eagle-eye focuses global.
