The Nikon CoolPix S8100 (Black) isn't loaded with frivolous bells and whistles--it's got seriously awesome bells and whistles like a 12.1MP CMOS sensor, a sharp, wide-angle to telephoto 10x optical zoom lens (30-300mm 35mm equivalent) made with Nikon ED glass, 1080p HD video, 5 frames per second shooting, 4-way image stabilization for sharp photos even in low light, and a beautiful 921,000-dot high resolution 3" LCD display.

But there's a lot more. Like Subject Tracking to automatically track and auto focus on a moving subject; one-touch video recording with optical zoom, stereo sound and an in-camera editing function; HDR (high dynamic range) function that automatically merges several images of the same scene to achieve a single image with a broad, beautiful range of tonal detail not otherwise possible; and 17 scene modes including the Scene Auto Selector, which automatically recognizes any shooting situation and optimizes all the settings for that scene.

Night Portrait combines consecutive shots of the background while the subject in the foreground is taken using the flash, allowing challenging night scenes to be easily captured during handheld shooting and eliminating any subject movement.  Night Landscape combines a series of five consecutive shots taken at a fast shutter speed into a single image with reduced noise for taking handheld shots in low light.

There's also the Smart Portrait System, with In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, improved Face-Priority AF, Blink Warning, Smile Timer, and Skin Softening to make your friends and family actually happy to see themselves in your pictures.

Greatly enhanced low-light photographs: the 12.1MP backside illumination CMOS sensor enables exceptional image quality even when shooting in low-light settings, including the advanced Night Portrait mode, which reproduces night scenes and indoor portraits as the user sees them while reducing image blur.
To further help deliver crisp, sharp photos, the S8100 features a 4-Way vibration reduction (VR) Image Stabilization System with ISO settings up to 3200.
The Night Portrait mode combines consecutive shots of the background while the subject is taken by using the flash, allowing challenging night scenes to be easily captured during handheld shooting and eliminating any subject movement.
