Building on the success of the COOLPIX "S"tyle Series of digital cameras, Nikon introduces the S200 and S500. Boasting 7.1 megapixels, a 3x Zoom-Nikkor glass lens, VR Image Stabilization technologies, and sleek metal bodies, these cameras exude high performance and exquisite design. The S200 is constructed from brushed aluminum and the S500 from stainless steel.
In addition, the COOLPIX S200 and S500 feature several imaging innovations designed to encourage carefree shooting for the consumer. The S200 utilizes Electronic Vibration Reduction (e-VR) Image Stabilization, a feature that electronically overcomes camera shake for sharper results. For greater vibration control, the S500 features Optical VR Image Stabilization, a feature that compensates for camera shake ensuring sharp images at shutter speeds up to three times slower than would normally be possible. Both the S200 and S500 have High ISO capabilities; the S200 up to 1000 and the S500 up to ISO 2000, ideal for capturing images in low-light situations. On the S200, the e-VR Image Stabilization feature is activated by utilizing the camera's easy-to-use menu system. The S500 features a new Anti-Shake button, located on the top of the camera, which activates high ISO, VR and Best Shot Selector (BSS) at the same time to produce clearer results in low light or at telephoto zoom settings.
For image sharing, both models feature a bright, high resolution 2.5 inch LCD monitor with an anti-reflective coating, easing the composition of photos, even in direct sunlight. These cameras also have a 16:9 aspect ratio option, making them perfect for sharing images via a HD television.
In order to simplify the picture taking process, Nikon has incorporated a new menu interface into the S200 and S500, employing illustrated help dialogs for easy navigation and mode selection. This menu also provides direct access to Nikon's triad of Image Innovations; in-camera functions for enhancing or correcting images including:
Both the COOLPIX S200 and the COOLPIX S500 come bundled with Nikon's exclusive PictureProject
software. The PictureProject software is powerful and user-friendly and makes transferring,
organizing, editing and sharing photos a snap. Both cameras are SDHC compatible and utilize
the new ultra-compact EN-EL10 rechargeable Li-ion battery.
