The Coolpix S50 is an outstanding compact digital camera with a stylish wave-surface design and offers a variety of advanced functions to ease the process of shooting. The Coolpix S50 features powerful 7.2 effective megapixel imaging capability that allows images to retain their sharpness even when significantly enlarged. It also incorporates an especially compact built-in "right-angle" optical VR lens.
Combining a pleasing 38-114mm (35mm equivalent) performance with minimal dimensions, the 3x Zoom-Nikkor lens makes it easy to compose all kinds of shots ranging from tight portraits to wide-open landscapes. This camera features Vibration Reduction which helps in producing sharper shots. What's more, its ISO 1600 high sensitivity helps in creating new opportunities to take more natural looking photos under lower lighting conditions.
A handy One-touch portrait button provides direct access to three unique Nikon innovations such as in-camera - Face-priority AF* that automatically detects and achieves sharp focus on people's faces wherever they are in the frame, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix that can automatically overcome the red-eye effect sometimes caused by flash, and Nikon's D-Lighting that can rescue underexposed images or shots taken with too much backlight.
Thanks to its large 3.0-inch wide-angle LCD monitor, which makes composition with the Coolpix S50 a much easy task. The large screen also makes it easy to playback images anywhere and an anti-reflection coating means it's always easy to see the image even in direct sunlight. Furthermore, the screen serves as an excellent platform for the Pictmotion function that allows users to select their favorite movies and images, and then combine them with music and visual styles to share images in a more entertaining manner.
It is coupled with a handy Anti-Shake button that overcomes camera shake by activating lens shift VR, High-Sensitivity and BSS all at once. The Coolpix S50, like all cameras in the immensely popular Nikon Coolpix range, comes bundled with Nikon's exclusive PictureProject software. Powerful, yet exceptionally user-friendly, PictureProject helps to transfer, organize, edit and share photos with family and friends.
