Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this camera was released.

Average Optical Zoom

At 5 times zoom factor, the Coolpix S2800 has a fairly average optical zoom compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that have been available for more than two years.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 5x optical zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS3.

If this camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Coolpix S5300 (£166.94) (8x), or the Coolpix S6700 (10x) both from Nikon which also has a higher rating.

With a screen size of 2.7 inches, the Coolpix S2800 has a pretty standard screen size compared to most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to the Coolpix S2800.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 2.7" screen cameras currently available including the GE E1450W which has better reviews.

If you want a camera with a larger screen size then you might want to look at the Lumix DMC-SZ8 (3"), or the Lumix DMC-TZ56 (3") both from Panasonic which is also higher rated.

The Nikon Coolpix S2800 has a fairly typical weight (120 grams) compared to most of the other digital cameras of this spec and age.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 120g cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Casio Exilim EX-ZS5, and the Nikon Coolpix S570 is also worth considering.
