Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Nikon Coolpix S10 is a compact digital camera with the unique Nikon twist lens design that makes it easy to take pictures from high and very low angles. It replaces the Coolpix S4 and has 6.0MP resolution, a 10x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens, a large 2.5-in. LCD monitor with a high 230,000 pixels resolution.

The Nikon S10 features true image stabilization (CCD shift), called Vibration Reduction, that minimizes blurred shots caused by camera shake.

The Nikon S10 accepts the Secure Digital (SD) card and has about 16MB of Internal Memory. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix™ automatically removes most instances of red-eye in the camera; Face-Priority AF, Nikon's face-finding technology, automatically finds and focuses on face(s); and, D-Lighting lightens dark images, in-camera, for great prints right out of the camera.

Pictmotion allows the creation of in-camera slide shows with music. Included in the box is a rechargeable EN-EL8 battery (that takes up to 200 pictures on a single charge) and Docking Station.

A High Sensitivity mode automatically adjusts the sensivity (up to ISO 800) to make it easier to shoot in low light.

The Nikon Coolpix S10 should appeal to point-and-shoot photographers desiring a compact digital camera with image stabilization and the unique twist lens design.
