10 Megapixel Resolution
The 1/2.3" CCD image sensor of the Coolpix S60 can capture a maximum resolution of 10.0 megapixels to produce stunning prints as large as 16 x 20 inches, with sufficient resolution to show the finest details, and still crop creatively.
5x Zoom Lens
The 5x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR Glass Lens of the Coolpix S60 delivers superb razor-sharp results with a focal length of 5.9-29.5mm (equivalent to 33-165mm in 35mm terms), while the unique folded optics system of the lens ensures that the camera remains slim and stylish - even with its excellent zoom capability.
3.5" Touch Panel LCD Display
The 3.5-inch high resolution, 16:9 widescreen LCD display, has a 160° wide-viewing angle to make picture-taking and playback more fun and exciting, and intuitive Touch Panel control provides the simplicity of easy fingertip control over most camera operations. Plus the display features an Anti-reflection coating that not only enhances viewing ease, but also protects against damage and wear of the display. The Touch Panel display also makes Touch Autofocus and Autoexposure possible - simply touch the subject on the screen that you want to focus on and the camera automatically sets the focus, exposure, and will track the subject ensuring sharp focus and optimal exposure regardless of subject movement.
The Touch Panel display enables easy operation with a choice of three different Home displays, and you can even write a personal message on your photos with the included stylus. All camera functions (with the exception of the on/off switch and the shutter release) are all accessed via the Touch Panel, and can be user customized to make it easier than ever to access all the camera controls.
Optical Vibration Reduction Image Stabilization
The Nikon VR Image Stabilization system incorporated into the NIKKOR Lens compensates for camera shake resulting in sharper images - even when shooting under unsteady conditions such as on a boat, and provides the ability to shoot at shutter speeds as much as three stops slower without blurring the image for sharper natural light images. The VR system even provides faster and clearer framing on the cameras monitor as well as smoother action when using the movie mode. In addition, superior noise-reduction ISO technology allows for correct exposure and sharpness even in low-light conditions, and Nikon's Best Shot Selector takes a maximum of 10 sequential shots and automatically saves the sharpest image.
EXPEED Image Processor
The camera incorporates Nikon's latest EXPEED Image Processor to ensure high-quality pictures with stunning color and sharpness. The EXPEED Image Processor - part of Nikon's comprehensive digital imaging processing concept incorporates the know-how and the technologies acquired throughout Nikon's long history of photographic and digital imaging development, and renders natural-looking pictures of incredible quality while also providing quick responsiveness so you won't miss that special moment.
High ISO Capability
The Coolpix S60 makes it easier to take sharper, more natural-looking pictures in lower lighting conditions, or to capture fast moving subjects with outstanding clarity thanks to its high sensitivity with Auto Adjusts up to ISO 3200 (ISO 3200 is available at 5MP or lower resolution), while its image-processing engine with enhanced noise reduction preserves high image quality when shooting at high ISO settings.
Nikon In-Camera Innovations
The Coolpix S60 incorporates Nikon In-Camera innovations including In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, Face Priority AF, and D-Lighting. The Nikon In-Camera 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. 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. 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.
17 Versatile Scene Modes
The Coolpix S60 incorporates 17 scene modes that cover some of the more common difficult shooting situations to maximize the image quality. The scene modes adjust focus, exposure, white balance and other settings to make getting a good exposure easy. Simply match you current shooting situation with one of the Scene Modes and the camera will make the necessary adjustments automatically. If you can't seem to choose the right mode, the Scene Auto Selector automatically recognizes the scene in your picture and adjusts camera setting.
Smile Shutter and Blink Warning
Makes sure you always catch the best possible image when shooting portraits or group shots. The Smile Shutter captures an image at the decisive moment when your subject smiles and the Blink Warning will let you know when your subject's eyes are closed so you can retake your picture.
Movie and Voice Recording
Shoot QuickTime movies with sound at VGA resolution with a frame rate of 30 fps at a clip length that is only limited by the available space on the internal memory or your SD memory card. The Voice Memo Function Records up to 20 seconds of sound that can then be attached to an image.
