Pre-PMA 2007: Next up is a slim, 7.1MP Coolpix digital camera with 3x zoom, 2.5-inch screen and what Nikon somewhat vaguely refers to as electronic VR (image stabilization using digital signal processing). This is the only 'VR' camera in new range that doesn't use lens or CCD shift. But hey, it's got ISO 1000 so that's ok...
Nikon is pleased to announce the COOLPIX S200
In order to uphold its legacy of industry-leading technology that consistently delivers excellent results, Nikon is always seeking new ways to enhance the camera user’s experience. The new COOLPIX S200 model brings world-class photographic results to professionals and amateurs alike, packed into a sleek compact casing.
Measuring just 18.5mm, the stylish aluminum body of the COOLPIX S200 blends an attractive design with modern features, demonstrating Nikon’s commitment to quality state-of-the-art craftsmanship.
Combining 7.1 effective megapixels of image resolution with an impressive 38-114mm 3 x Zoom-Nikkor lens, this camera is able to faithfully capture the detail of the closest portrait to the broadest panorama, even after enlargement of the shots.
Image quality is further enhanced by the Vibration Reduction function (activated in Anti-Shake mode), which compensates for camera shake and delivers clear pictures even in unsteady conditions. In combination with the High-Sensitivity mode which extends to ISO 1000, the VR function also enables the user to take quality photographs in lower light conditions.
Fast-moving and shaded shots present no challenge to the COOLPIX S200, and the results can be enjoyed with friends on the ample 2.5-inch LCD screen. This also allows easy navigation of the new menu interface which offers quick access to a variety of exciting modes and functions.
Packaged within the COOLPIX S200, three unique Nikon innovations make it possible to manipulate the images in-camera, enabling amateurs to achieve results that a professional would be proud of. Face-priority AF detects people’s faces to achieve sharp focus on the face, no matter where they happen to be located in the frame; In-Camera Red-Eye Fix tackles this effect by providing automatic compensation for more flattering, natural-looking portraits in low light. Finally, Nikon’s unique D-Lighting function improves underexposed images or shots taken with too much back-light, leaving well-exposed areas untouched.
Nikon’s exclusive PictureProject software allows the user to further manipulate images once they have been uploaded onto a computer. This is an easy-to-use programme which makes it simple to edit, organise, transfer and share the photographs taken with the COOLPIX S200.
Nikon COOLPIX S200 Feature Highlights
VR image stabilization
The COOLPIX S200 features electronic Vibration Reduction (VR) that allows users to overcome the effects of camera shake to produce satisfyingly sharp images. Taking data from a built-in angular velocity sensor, the system applies in-camera image processing to turn blurred images into beautifully sharp results. Anti-Shake mode also employs e-VR to deliver clearer, more stable images in diverse shooting situations.
ISO 1000 capability
Light sensitivity can be manually set as high as ISO 1000. This allows the use of faster shutter speeds to avoid blurred results when shooting moving subjects or in locations with insufficient lighting. A new image-processing engine with enhanced noise reduction and an improved signal-to-noise ratio preserves high image quality and demonstrates superior light sensitivity. In High Sensitivity mode, the ISO setting is automatically adjusted from ISO 50 to as high as ISO 1000 to ensure optimal exposure and carefree shooting in lower light.
Innovative Nikon in-camera correction features
The COOLPIX S200 features a selection of three innovative functions that provide the ability to actually improve the quality of images within the camera. Face-priority AF* automatically finds, then focuses on people’s faces for crisp, clear results time after time. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically compensates to help eradicate traces of the annoying red-eye effect that can sometimes be encountered during flash photography. Completing the set is D-Lighting, which can be applied to improve underexposed images or shots taken with too much backlight. D-Lighting automatically creates a copy of the image with detail added where necessary, but with well-exposed areas left completely untouched.
* Face recognition capability may be limited in some shooting conditions.
