Patricia, Paignton Experienced amateur

Bad points:
Flimsy - this was a gift to my daughter and the first time she used it the screen broke rendering the camera totally unusable.
Image quality was disappointing when I tried it out. I have a Nikon DX40 which is infinitely superior. Of course I don't expect a digital compact to be of the same quality as a digital SLR but I expected something better form the Nikon brand.

Nix, Halifax Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Super lightweight, perfect 'evening bag' size, very easy to operate and easy to view pictures. Very easy to download the pics to the computer, took no time at all. Didn't want a complicated camera with loads of features I wouldn't ever use - this does exactly what it says on the tin and I am delighted with it.
Bad points:
Just a pity it doesn't come with a memory card as you can't take masses of pictures without one, but it's not the end of the world and won't put me off buying it again!

Ryan, Stoke Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Simple to use in full auto mode, but also some great features as you would expect from a Nikon.
The best thing is the fact it has Li-ion battery included with charger so no need to keep buying batteries or using rechargables.
Bad points:
A little bit plasticy, but nowhere near as bad as some of the cheaper or for that matter more expensive models.

Manufacturer's Description

The Nikon S203 10 megapixel digital camera features a 3x optical zoom and a 2.5" LCD screen. There is an auto scene mode, Best Shot selector & 16 scene modes. D-lighting creates great results by correcting strong shadows to rescue underexposed images, or shots taken with excessive backlight. The 4x anti-blur on the S203 automatically counters blurred images in 4 different ways, while Quick Retouch lets you retouch images taken under poor conditions so they appear sharp and vibrant. The Nikon S203 is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and a charger is included.
