The contoured thumb groove on the back allows for easy operation and control of the camera with just one hand. Controls on the back: On top are the Mode selection and Playback buttons. In place of the 4-way controller is a rotary multi-selector. This dial works in the same way as the 4-way controller, allowing you to press any of the 4 directions to access timer, flash, EV compensation and macro modes, but it also allows you to scroll through images and menus by turning the dial. Under the dial are the buttons for the Menu and Delete functions.

The Coolpix S210 is equipped with ~44MB of internal memory and a SD/SDHC memory card slot, no card is supplied with the camera. Images and movies can be copied from internal memory to SD card or vice-versa. We recommend the purchase of at least a 1GB (or larger) SD/SDHC card or your picture taking will be quite limited.

The S630 is powered by a proprietary EN-EL12 rechargeable Li-Ion battery that is charged in the included MH-65 battery charger. Nikon claims this pack provides approx. 220 shots (CIPA standard) per charge. An optional power adapter EH-62F allows the camera to be powered from an A/C wall outlet.
