Shooting @ 10x

I have just bought a cool Nikon Coolpix S10 digicam.

And the two best things about the camera are a whopping 10x Optical zoom and a swivel lens. Alongwith it I am using a SanDisk 2GB SD card which can take 680+ shots at full resolution and minimum compression...
You can read the review of the camera at http://www.dpreview.com/news/0608/06082411nikons10.asp

Some observations till now:

  • The Optical zoom is awesome and works like a breeze
  • The swivel lens allows to take snaps from creative angles without you needing to bend
  • It has an exhaustive list of scene modes
  • You can't use optical zoom while capturing a video
  • It has a Time lapse mode for movie which allows you to shot movie snippets at regular interval which can be used for making a Time Lapse Movie
  • It has a sports composite mode which take 16 composite shots of a sport scene and make a 4x4 collage of that.
  • The UI and controllers take some time to get used to
  • There is some noise in night landscape images.
  • While shooting at 10x, the hands should be extremely steady. Tripod recommended.
