Pre-PMA 2008: The entry-level Coolpix S210 offers an 8.0 megapixel sensor and 3x 38-114mm equiv. lens. Electronic VR takes care of camera shake issues - though not as effectively as the lens and sensor based systems offered higher up the range. A 2.5" 230k dot LCD on the rear of the camera displays photos crisply enough and the brushed-aluminum and chrome casing gives it a touch of class. Click through for the details.
Nikon COOLPIX S210
Elegantly slim design blends with high performance to bring greater pleasure to photography and to carrying a camera
January 29, 2008, Tokyo — Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX S210, a stylish new camera that’s a pleasure to carry and a joy to shoot with. Built on a custom application of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processing concept and incorporating the precision optics of a NIKKOR lens, the COOLPIX S210 places advanced shooting functions comfortably in the hand for greater fun with photography.
Outstanding imaging ability begins with 8.0 effective megapixels of sharp resolution. It gets even better with its digital image processing engine that faithfully reproduces fine details and subtle tones, delivers quick response, and maintains image quality and clarity when taking advantage of extended light sensitivity settings as high as ISO 2000. And completing the triad is the clarity and precision provided by a 3x Zoom-NIKKOR lens that covers a practical range from 38-114mm (35mm format equivalent) to ably capture everything from group shots to close-up portraits. Electronic VR image stabilization adds extra reassurance that the results will be sharper and clearer, especially in lower light or when shooting moving subjects.
As befits a fine photographic tool, the COOLPIX S210 is housed in a slim, quality-crafted aluminum body with gentle contours that fit comfortably in the hand. Functional beauty and classic camera appeal are the theme throughout, from the hairline treatment on the face to the clean design of the back with large control buttons and the user-friendly rotary multi selector carefully positioned to provide intuitive operation.
The COOLPIX S210 will be available in a choice of Bright Silver, Urban Black, Pink, Light Bronze, Blue, Purple, or Red body colors*.
*Color availability may vary according to region
Note: Specifications, design, product name, standard accessories, and release schedule may differ by country or area.
Nikon COOLPIX S210 Feature Highlights
VR image stabilization
Compensating for the effects of camera shake to realize sharper results, electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization frees you to enjoy capturing special moments without worrying about slight hand movements, particularly in lower light conditions.
ISO 2000 capability provides extended shooting range
Extended light sensitivity range with manual settings up to ISO 2000 makes it easier to take great-looking pictures in lower lighting conditions, or to capture moving subjects with outstanding clarity. Automatic sensitivity control is also available, freeing you to concentrate on the shot while the camera selects the optimal setting across a range between ISO 64 and ISO 800. And High-Sensitivity mode minimizes blur by automatically selecting optimal light sensitivity.
Large 2.5-inch LCD monitor for quality viewing and menu operation
The COOLPIX S210 is equipped with a quality 2.5-inch LCD monitor that features 230k-dots of high resolution, a wide 170-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angle, anti-reflection coating for better display in bright situations, and an acrylic panel that prevents scratches and fingerprints. Improved shooting displays with revised icons and information feedback help make framing and shooting easier.
