The new COOLPIX S5 and S6 combine high-quality imaging performance with impressive new Pictmotion(TM) photo sharing technology to make the S5 & S6 the must-have compact digital camera. Both the S5 & S6 have sleek, slim wave designs, appealing to users who want their cameras to look as great as the pictures they take. They boast 6.0 effective megapixels & feature a 3x Zoom-Nikkor ED Glass lens.
Making it simple & convenient to take stunning portraits, a standalone One-Touch Portrait Button featured on both the S5 & S6, gives users instant access to the Face Priority AF & In-Camera Red Eye Fix options. To ensure quality photos in various shooting environments, users have the option of 16 scene modes, 17 for S5 with Underwater mode, including 4 modes with Scene Assist & a TV Quality Movie Mode function that records moving memories at 30fps with sound.
Sharing digital images is made easy with the new Pictmotion technology, which puts a creative new spin on the average in-camera slide show. By allowing users to select their favorite recorded images & matching one of 5 royalty-free, pre-installed music files on the camera, or your own choice of music, Pictmotion automatically analyzes all the elements to produce in-camera slide shows that look great & are fun to share with others.
The COOLPIX S5 & S6 provide quality playback of sound & the bright, sharp expanded 2.5 & 3.0-inch LCD's, with an impressively wide 170-degree viewing a ngle, make it easy for everyone to see.
With the incorporation of a new Rotary Multi Selector, users can easily scroll their way through the newly designed menu system or breeze through picture playback at up to 10 frames per second. Another new feature for the COOLPIX S5 & S6 includes a calendar function that automatically sorts images according to the date that they were taken.
For added in camera assistance, Nikon created a Help button, which is now standard on all Nikon's new COOLPIX cameras. This component provides easy-to-understand explanations for functions on the main menu.
Supporting both 80211.b & 80211.g WiFi standards, the built-in WiFi on the COOLPIX S6 allows for wireless transfer & printing of pictures to any PictBridge-enabled printer. For wireless printing of pictures without a computer Nikon offers the accessory Wireless Printer Adapter PD-10.
