About this item

The ultra-slim Coolpix S1, a 5.1-megapixel camera featuring state-of-the-art technology like the exclusive new Face Priority AF (Auto Focus) feature, enhanced image quality and improved speed, within a smooth, compact design. Along with the line's first, bright 2.5-inch LCD screen, the 3/4-inch thin Coolpix S1 is perfect for the customer who values style and sophistication on par with traditional Nikon performance.

Nikon has narrowed the picture-taking process down to three simple steps - turn on the camera, frame the shot & snap the picture. It's that simple! Imagine a camera smart enough to find a face in a portrait shot. Nikon's new Face Priority AF function can do just that when selected through the Portrait Scene Mode. As its name suggests, Face Priority AF ensures that faces remain in focus when shooting portraits by automatically sensing the presence of a human face within the frame and setting accurate focus accordingly. The result is a sharp portrait with the press of a button.

Beyond faces, the Nikon Coolpix S1 can also automatically detect and fix red-eye directly within the camera. The S1 detects & corrects red eyes in most typical situations without the need to press buttons or select & highlight the eyes in playback, withhout the hassle of additional software.

Nikon's exclusive new D-Lighting function is another addition that can literally turn throwaway shots into frame-able memories. The D-Lighting feature can be selected in Playback mode automatically compensating for insufficient flash or excessive back lighting in order to obtain balanced exposure throughout the frame. The S1 is also equipped with Blur Warning, unique to Nikon which alerts the user when a shot is compromised by camera or hand shake, allowing another shot to be taken before leaving the scene.

Nikon has engineered the Coolpix S1 with more features that improve the image directly within the camera and streamline the process of receiving great prints using a favorite retailer, online service or home printer. Furthermore, with its incredible, bright 2.5-inch LCD screen, images are easier to review and share than on most consumer digital cameras.

The Coolpix S1 takes significantly more shots per battery charge, using the camera's rechargeable EN-EL8 lithium-ion battery, & offers continuous shooting at 1.8 fps. The blazing speed even continues into the startup time, with the Coolpix S1 starting up in less than 2 seconds.

This camera offers four Scene Modes that feature Scene Assist, and even a new Underwater Scene Mode and Voice Recording Mode that brings the total choice of Scene Modes up to 17. Intended for use with the Waterproof Case WP-CP5, the Underwater Scene Mode enables true-to-life colors to be captured when taking shots while snorkeling or scuba diving. Capture action in an expressive manner with the power to record VGA-size movies with sound at a smooth rate of 15 frames per second.
