The Nikon Coolpix P50 Digital Camera is a blend orthodox camera styling with an advanced feature set and operating ease. Built on a custom application of Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processing concept, the Coolpix P50 is built to provide optimum performance and maximum image quality. It also features a 3.6x Zoom-Nikkor lens with 28mm wide-angle capability that ably covers a range from panoramic landscapes to close-up portraits. Plus the camera incorporates Nikon's Electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization system which compensates for camera shake or movement by unsteady subjects to achieve sharper results, along with extended light sensitivity up to ISO 2000 to further helps prevent blurred shots when shooting in lower light, or when capturing fast-moving subjects.

From its functional body design, with stable grip and rubber thumb rest, to the intuitive operation of its Mode dial, complete with a setting for Manual shooting mode, the Coolpix P50 is extremely versatile. Its optical viewfinder enables accurate composition, even in bright sunlight, making it a handy complement to the bright 2.4-inch LCD monitor on the back of the body. Power is supplied by readily available AA-size batteries, which means the Coolpix P50 can be used in virtually any location without worrying about recharging or running out of power.

8.1 Megapixel Resolution
With 8.1 million pixels of image information, the Nikon Coolpix P50 can produce stunning, photo quality prints up to 16" x 20".
3.6x Optical Zoom Wide-Angle Nikkor Lens
The Zoom Nikkor Lens incorporates exclusive ED lens elements that deliver crisp, clear images, and provides a 3.6x optical zoom with wide angle capability (28mm-102mm equivalent) while the Macro capability lets you get as close as 2" to your subject.
Electronic VR Image Stabilization
The Coolpix P50 features Electronic VR capability to provide impressive image stabilizing performance. Using a built-in angular velocity sensor, the Electronic VR system applies in-camera image processing to help overcome the effects of camera shake and produce satisfyingly sharp images.
Easy-to-use Shooting Modes
In addition to a selection of 15 scene-optimized modes and five different movie modes, the handy Mode dial also allows users to easily select the Programmed Auto [P] mode which automatically selects the optimal camera settings, and the Manual [M] exposure mode which provides full control over both the aperture and shutter speed settings to provide greater personal control over camera operation.
Nikon In-Camera Red-Eye Fix
The Red-Eye Fix system automatically corrects for most instances of the red-eye effect that is commonly caused by the use of a built-in flash on a compact camera.
Nikon D-Lighting
The Nikon D-Lighting feature can rescue underexposed images or shots taken with too much backlight by automatically brightening the dark areas in the picture, while maintaining the brighter areas of the image.
Nikon Face-Priority AF
The Face-Priority AF system automatically detects and achieves sharp focus on people's faces wherever they are in the frame for crisp, sharp portraits.
Face-Focus AF Mode
Nikon's innovative Face-priority AF has been updated to not only perform with improved speed and efficiency, but also to better find and then focus on people's faces for crisp, clear results time after time. This improved functionality is applied to the handy Face-focus AF shooting mode, which determines optimum focus and exposure when a face is detected within the framed shot.
High ISO Capability
Covering an impressive sensitivity range from ISO 50 all the way up to ISO 2000, the Coolpix P50 makes it easier to take great-looking pictures in lower lighting conditions, or to capture fast moving subjects with outstanding clarity. The Coolpix P50 accurately measures available light to automatically select the optimal sensitivity setting for the shot, while its image-processing engine with enhanced noise reduction preserves high image quality when shooting at high ISO settings.
Built-in and Expandable Memory
The camera includes 52MB of built-in memory, and the memory capacity can be expanded dramatically with Secure digital (SD) or Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory cards.
Bright 2.4" LCD and Optical Viewfinder
The Coolpix P50 is equipped with a large 2.4" LCD that is great for viewing images anywhere, anytime; and the anti-reflective coating makes it easier for everyone to see and enjoy your images. Plus the camera incorporates an Optical Viewfinder for taking pictures in any type of lighting conditions.
Uses Convenient AA Batteries
The Coolpix P50 uses AA-size batteries; ensuring users can shoot with confidence, free of any worries about recharging batteries or running out of power, since users can simply purchase fresh batteries at any convenient location.
PictBridge and ImageLink Compatibility
Simply connect the Coolpix P50 to a PictBridge compatible printer with the included USB cable, engage the direct print feature, and print directly - without the need for a computer The direct print feature allows you to select all images or just the images you like best, and even make multiple copies to share with family and friends. The camera is also compatible with the ImageLink Printer interface system, and includes an appropriate Camera Dock Insert for this purpose.
