Nikon launches Coolpix S2

Posted on Wednesday, May 18 2005 @ 21:33:24 CEST by

Nikon today launched the Coolpix S2 5.1 megapixel ultra-slim digital camera. The camera has a slim, splash-proof compact design with a 2.5-inch LCD screen. 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(TM) 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.
