About Nikon S30

The Nikon Coolpix S30 Digital Camera (Blue) boasts a 10.1 effective MP CCD sensor and EXPEED C2 image processing engine for superior image quality. It's equipped with a 3x optical zoom NIKKOR glass lens with a focal length of 4.1 - 12.3mm (29.1 - 87.3mm 35mm equivalent) for both wide angle and telephoto shots. A 2.7" (6.9 cm) bright LCD monitor helps you in framing and playback. The camera records high definition (HD) 720p video at the touch of a button. Immediately review and laugh, cry or fawn over the photos and videos of the day via the intuitive slideshow mode.

Taking portraits is a cinch and when your subject smiles, the camera automatically captures the image, thanks to the Smart Portrait System. You need not worry about blurry images due to shaky hands, since the electronic VR Image Stabilization system reduces motion blur for sharper, clearer images. Employ Easy Auto mode for those times when you just want to relax and enjoy the moment, letting the camera do the heavy lifting.

Waterproof to a depth of 9.8' (3.0 m) and shock-proof against 2.6' (0.8 m) drops, the S30 is a faithful companion for poolside fun and other outdoor activities. Simple scene modes automatically optimize camera settings for the best results in a given situation or add creative flair to your images. Modes include Point and Shoot, Underwater, Interval Shooting, Highlight Color, Diorama (miniature) Effect, Closeups, Continuous, Food Mode and Soft Focus. Pre-selectable special effects that are fun to use and explore include Soft Focus, Selective Color and Miniature. There are also effects that are applicable after the still shot has been captured, such as Soft, Selective Color, Cross Screen, Fisheye, Miniature, Color options (vivid, black and white, sepia, cyanotype) and more!

Best little 10MP waterproof camera

By

from seattle, wa  -  Photo Enthusiast

great little waterproof, shockproof 10mp kids camera. Both my 7 and 11 year-olds have one. I love how easy the S30 is to use, and that it is water and shock proof, well, with kids, you gotta love that.

where no expensive camera wants to go...

By

from Washington, D.C.  -  Photo Enthusiast

Since it's winter in the mid-Atlantic states, the camera has yet to see water, but it was given to me to use on hikes to waterfalls, canoe trips, pool outings, the beach, etc. Places where an expensive SLR might be in danger. Its compact size means I can always have it available for photos of opportunity. So far, so good, but it hasn't really been put to the test yet.
