The S225, exclusively available through Jessops, hikes the resolution to 10 megapixels. The 3x optical zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 35-105mm, which is nowt to write home about. There's also no optical image stabilisation, which is pretty criminal in a camera costing more than £100.
You get smile, blink and red-eye detection, face-chasing for up to 12 faces, 16 scene modes and automatic scene selection. Best-shot selector picks the sharpest of up to ten sequential shots, and quick retouch lets you gussy up your picture in-camera then save it as a copy.
With Canon bucking up its ideas on the compact front in the recent slew of camera announcements, Nikon is possibly the last manufacturer still churning out such dull cameras in the lower reaches of the market. We can't remember the last time we got excited about a Coolpix, as solid as they are. It's particularly disappointing as Nikon is the only manufacturer actually making Wi-Fi snappers -- sadly, they're all rubbish.
