Nikon Coolpix S550

Nikon Coolpix S550

Here is Nikon’s product page on the Coolpix S550. I bough this camera because I wanted something that was small and easy to carry in my pocket. From that perspective it is great, however, I don’t like the camera because it doesn’t fit my hand and I tend to move the camera everytime I press the shutter release. Here are the key features:

  • 10.0 Megapixels for stunning prints as large as 16 x 20 inches.  Plenty of sharp resolution to capture the finest details, crop creatively and produce incredible enlargements
  • New EXPEED image processor ensures high-quality pictures with stunning color and sharpness.  Nikon’s comprehensive digital imaging processing concept incorporates know-how and technologies accumulated throughout our long history of photographic and digital imaging development.  EXPEED is custom-tuned for COOLPIX and applied optimized technologies the render natural-looking pictures of incredible quality and quick response so you will not miss that special moment
  • Incredible, Bright 2.5-inch High Resolution LCDmakes it easy to compose and share your pictures. In addition, the high-contrast and anti-reflection coating on the screen assist in clear viewing, even in direct sunlight
  • Nikon Image Innovations include: In-Camera Red-Eye Fix™, which will automatically look for and fixes most instances of red-eye. You may never see red-eyes again, Face Priority AF is Nikon’s face-finding technology that quickly finds and focuses on up to 12 faces in a group portrait, and D-Lighting will rescue those photos that are too dark for printing by enhancing the underexposed areas of the picture while not touching the properly exposed areas
  • High Quality TV Movies with Sound is now just a press of a button away with your COOLPIX.  Record TV-Quality movies with sound whose duration is only limited by the available space on your SD/SDHC card.  Connect your camera to your TV and you have instant home-movies!
  • 5x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR Glass Lens NIKKOR optics provide exceptional pictures. The lens is built on a proud heritage of producing precision camera optics that deliver superb color and razor-sharp results
  • Electronic VR Image Stabilization compensates for camera shake to prevent blur and produce clearer, sharper pictures in lower light or unsteady conditions
  • Smile Shutter and Blink Warning makes sure you’ll always catch the decisive moment when your subject smiles and blink warning will let you know when your subjects eyes are closed so you can retake your picture
  • Auto adjusts up to ISO 2000 making new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking photos in lower light conditions
  • 15 Scene Modes for optimized shooting in various settings.  Chose from: Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Night Portrait, Party/Indoor, Beach/Snow, Sunset, Dusk/Dawn, Night Landscape, Close Up, Panorama Assist, Museum, Fireworks Show, Copy, Back Light modes.  Match you current shooting situation with one of these Scene Modes and the camera will make the necessary adjustments to get you an incredible picture, automatically
