The Nikon Coolpix S520 Digital Camera provides a resolution of 8 effective megapixels, and the camera's 3x Zoom-NIKKOR lens incorporates Nikon's acclaimed Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization technology 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 S520 has 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 5 people's faces within one frame, ensuring clear, crisp portraits. The S520 includes Nikon's Coolpix Software Suite for organizing, editing and sharing your photos.
The Coolpix S520 also provides innovative and helpful scene modes so that you are assured of selecting the perfect setting for a variety of shooting situations. The latest scene mode developed by Nikon is the Food Mode - it allows users to capture beautiful close-up images of food at high ISO settings in restaurants or other locations where flash photography is not desired. In addition, the S520 enables users to select three of their favorite 16 available scene modes to appear in the Mode menu for quicker access. You can also save favorite images to individual albums using the in-camera image organization system.
The Coolpix S520 has a bright, high resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor with an anti-reflective coating, thereby easing the composition and viewing of photos even in direct sunlight, and an acrylic panel over the LCD that prevents damaging scratches and fingerprints. Furthermore, the quality-crafted aluminum body has a streamlined profile and a slim, ergonomic design that Style-conscious photographers will love.
