Nikon has introduced a new ultra-compact Coolpix model to their Style Series line. The super thin (less than 3/4- inch) S210 offers 8- megapixels resolution, a 3x Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens, Electronic Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization technology, and a slim, quality-crafted aluminum body. The S210's design comes in an array of color options, and delivers high performance and ease-of- operation.
The S210 features Electronic VR Image Stabilization, which is designed to help produce sharper and clearer images, especially in lower lighting conditions or when capturing moving subjects. Users can also take advantage of extended light sensitivity settings as high as ISO 2000. Automatic sensitivity control is also included, which allows users to concentrate on a taking a photo while the camera selects the optimal ISO. To minimize blur, the S210 comes with a High-Sensitivity mode that automatically selects the optimal light sensitivity. The COOLPIX S210 utilizes Nikon's innovative EXPEED image processing system for enhanced noise reduction and improved the signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio.
This model comes with a bright, high resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor with a wide 170-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angle. The LCD monitor has an anti-reflective coating, easing the composition of photos even in direct sunlight, and an acrylic panel that prevents scratches and fingerprints. The S210 also boasts improved menu displays, as well as revised menu icons that will make framing photos easier than ever before.
Like all cameras in the Coolpix line, the S210 boasts user-friendly imaging innovations designed to make the photo-taking process fun and easy. These technologies, referred to as Nikon In-Camera Innovations, include In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, D-Lighting, and Face Priority AF. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically detects and corrects red eye, a common condition that occurs in flash photography. In playback mode, D-Lighting compensates for excessive backlight or insufficient flash in images, and Nikon's enhanced Face-Priority AF automatically finds and focuses on up to 12 people's faces within one frame, ensuring clear, crisp portraits.
The S210 comes bundled with Nikon's exclusive COOLPIX Software Suite for organizing, editing and sharing photos. The S210 is SDHC
compatible and utilizes the Nikon's ultra-compact EN-EL10 rechargeable Li-ion battery. The S210 will be available in a selection of
colors such as plum, graphite black, cool blue, and brushed bronze.
