The Nikon Coolpix S550 Digital Camera packs high performance and advanced functions into an ultra-compact body. The S550 boasts 10 effective megapixels of sharp resolution, and a 5x Zoom-NIKKOR lens with Electronic Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization, along with a Sensitivity equivalent to ISO 2000 to ensure that your photos will always look great - regardless of lighting conditions or subject movement. And all of these features are mediated by Nikon's innovative EXPEED image processing system which provides enhanced noise reduction and an improved signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio.
The Nikon S550 incorporates Nikon's user-friendly imaging innovations known as Nikon In-Camera Innovations. These include In-Camera Red-Eye Fix which automatically detects and corrects red eye, a common condition that occurs in flash photography, D-Lighting which compensates for excessive backlight or insufficient flash in images, and Face Priority AF which automatically finds and focuses on up to 12 people's faces within one frame, ensuring clear, crisp portraits. Furthermore, the S550 includes Nikon's Coolpix Software Suite for organizing, editing and sharing your photos.
Two of the latest features to be incorporated into the Nikon S550, are the Smile Mode and the Blink Warning - both of these features help photographers to get the best possible portraits or group shots. The Smile Mode automatically fires the shutter when the selected person smiles and the Blink Warning displays a warning message if the selected subject has blinked when the shot was taken. The Coolpix S550 also provides innovative and helpful scene modes so you are assured that you will be able to select the perfect setting for a variety of shooting situations.
The Coolpix S550 has a bright, high resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor with an anti-reflective coating and a wide viewing angle, thereby easing the composition and viewing of photos even in direct sunlight. The quality-crafted aluminum body has a streamlined profile and a slim, ergonomic design that style-conscious photographers will love. The S550 is compatible with SDHC cards and utilizes the ultra-compact EN-EL11 rechargeable Li-ion battery so you'll have plenty of power for a day of picture taking.
