Got my Nikon Coolpix S10 (6MP, 10X Optical zoom). Produces very good images and the best part is it's compact mainly due to its unique swivel design.
And below is a test of the optical zoom (I am not doing an ad for Maruti Alto here ... ;)). The second one below is at half the full zoom, and in the third one a scooter appears; and do you notice the registration plate? Where do you think that scooter is from ?
