"Horrible Picture Quality!!!!"1.5 starson by maicobreako
Pros: Nice compact, well constructed
Cons: Picture quality is the worst I've seen in all of the digital cameras I have ever purchased
Summary: Bought this camera as I was very pleased with an older Nikon L3 camera I'd bought for my wife, then usurped by our daughter. I needed a replacement and the S230 seemed perfect. My wife used it on a cruise and, oh my, all of the pictures were terrible. Bad color, poor focus, washed out. I assumed there was something amiss with setup but no, it just plain sucks!
She has now reverted to using an older Fuji 3MP point and shoot as it has far better picture quality.
Btw the Nikon L3 gave up the ghost too. My daughter has now moved on to DSLR's, I use a SLR like super zoom (can't justify the bulk of the DSLR) but every now a then a super compact point n shoot is just the ticket. Unfortunately, this is not the ticket . . .
