25 Reasons For

Good Brand

Compact camera digital cameras produced by Nikon have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all cameras (not just compact camera digital cameras) and found that Nikon also has good reviews across its entire range.

Quite Large Screen Size

With a screen size of 3 inches, the Coolpix S5200 has one of the larger screen sizes amongst compact camera digital cameras of this age. The screen sizes of comparable spec cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the Coolpix S5200 range from 1" to 4.8".

We compared this camera to all the other 3" screen digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L120[plb_1186_price], and the Casio EX-ZR300[plb_1713952_price] is also worth considering.

If this Nikon camera screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the Nikon Coolpix P520[plb_2085254_price] (3.2"), or the Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC110[plb_2083466_price] (4.8") which also has a higher rating.
