Nikon Announces New Splash-Proof Coolpix S2
The Coolpix S2 benefits from Nikon’s Exclusive Feature System made available through its Coolpix line of products and even incorporates a 16th Scene Mode – Voice Recording Scene Mode - to its arsenal of on-board technology. These features include Nikon’s exclusive Face Priority Auto Focus, which 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 points accordingly. The result is a sharp portrait with the press of a button. The S2 also boasts Nikon’s renowned In-Camera Red-Eye Fix™ technology, which detects and corrects red eyes in most typical situations without the need to press buttons or select and highlight the eyes in playback. 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.
