Nikon 26145B overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon Coolpix S230 Digital Camera provides images with up to 10.0 megapixels of resolution and incorporates a 3x Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens in a surprisingly slim camera body that is quality crafted in aluminum, and delivers high performance and ease-of-operation in a package that you can easily carry around with you at all times.

For incredibly sharp, blur-free images, Nikon's 4-way VR Image Stabilization technology utilizes sensor-shift Optical Image Stabilization, along with the camera's high sensitivity equivalent of ISO 2000, Motion Detection, and the exclusive Best Shot Selector (BSS), to ensure that your photos will always look great - regardless of lighting conditions or subject movement. And Nikon's Smart Portrait System ensures beautiful portrait and people shots by combining Nikon's innovative smile mode, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, D-Lighting, and Face Priority AF technologies. Furthermore, the S230 includes Nikon's Coolpix Software Suite for organizing, editing and sharing your photos.

The bright, high-resolution 3.0" touch panel LCD monitor provides an extremely intuitive means of controlling the camera settings. You can even use the touch panel display to control the cameras focus and utilize the Portrait One-Touch zoom feature. The Touch display also makes playback a fun and interactive activity by allowing you to scroll through and select images to display and edit, plus the paint function lets you personalize images with doodles and writing right on your images.

10.0 Megapixel Resolution
With 10.0 million pixels of image information, the Nikon Coolpix S230 can produce stunning, photo quality prints up to 16 x 20" without any loss of image quality
3x Optical Zoom-Nikkor Lens
The Zoom Nikkor Lens incorporates exclusive ED lens elements and provides a 3x optical zoom (35-105mm equivalent), that is ideal for most everyday shooting situations, while the Macro capability lets you get as close as 4.0" to your subject
4-Way Optical VR Image Stabilization
The Optical VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization system utilizes a sensor-shift mechanism to compensate for camera shake while the cameras automatically controlled high sensitivity of up to ISO 2000 allows for sharper images when shooting under low light conditions. The Motion Detection system helps to further compensate for subject motion and Nikon's exclusive Best Shot Selector ensures that your images will always be sharp and crisp
Movie and Voice Recording
Shoot broadcast-quality QuickTime movies with sound with VGA resolution at 30 frames-per-second at a length that is only limited by the available space on the internal memory or your SD memory card
17 Scene Modes with Scene Auto Selector
The Coolpix S230 incorporates 17 scene modes that cover some of the more common difficult shooting situations to maximize the image quality. The scene modes automatically adjust focus, exposure, white balance and other settings to make getting a good exposure easy. The Scene Auto selector automatically selects the best fit from 6 commonly used scene modes - making the camera ideal for the quick shooter
Smart Portrait System
The Smart portrait system combines the functions of several exclusive Nikon technologies including Nikon's innovative smile mode that automatically releases the camera shutter at the moment that your subject smiles, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix which automatically detects and corrects for red eye, 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 - all to ensure that portraits and group shots will always look their best
Built-in and Expandable Memory
The camera includes 44MB of built-in memory so you can begin taking shots immediately without having to purchase a memory card, and the memory capacity can be expanded dramatically with Secure Digital (SD/SDHC) memory cards
3.0" Widescreen Touch Panel LCD Display
The Coolpix S230 is equipped with a bright 3.0" Touch Panel LCD display that enables easy and intuitive operation and access to the camera's functions, and allows users to customize and edit images without the need to scroll through menus using traditional camera buttons. The high-resolution display is great for viewing images anywhere, anytime, while the impressive 170 degree wide viewing angle and anti-reflective coating make it easier for everyone to see and enjoy images
Print or Show Pictures
You can send images directly to print, without the need of a PC, when using PictBridge compatible printers, or connect directly to your TV for family slide shows and presentations

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so easy to use my 5 yrs old can do it this camera was a birthday gift and is the perfect camera for me. i have kids am always trying to capture to priceless moments that go hand in hand with children. i have gotten tons of great shots of my son doing flips and dives into the pool. you get a lot of great detail in the picture too - right down to the drops of water. one of my favorite fetures - the camera knows when some one has blinked!!! it will ask you right away if you want to keep the picture. or delete it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Technology in a Little Package I was looking for a camera that I could stick in my pocket and take with me anywhere easily for casual day to day picture taking. I went with Nikon because of the name, the price, and the features the camera offered. The 3 touchscreen is neat and works well. The design and shape of the camera make it easy to carry in a pocket. Picture quality is average ( my 6MP has sharper more vivid images) for a 10MP camera. More light improves IQ and a steadier hand.FIrst shot is not quick, second shot is faster. I'm trying to like this camera. I do tend to be picky. It is not a bad choice but might consider other brands also.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend this camera to friends I love this camera! I bought it in plum-awesome color! My first pictures weren't so great but once I learned how to use it they were. I've used it indoors and outside. I also took pictures at a softball game and I was very pleased with them. I like the size of the camera because it easily fits in my pocket to take anywhere. The best part is that you can write comments right on your photos.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great function, little less quality This Coolpix S230 has just right size, great design, big display, and easy-to-use function, but to me the photo quality is less than expectation, especially low light condition. Maybe because I used to the quality of DSLRs, but when I compare this to other compact cameras with 10 mega pixels, photo quality is there, just not overpass them, even the others are 2-3 years old. The touch screen function is really nice and intuitive. Easy to everyday use, especially for my wife to take a snap shot or short movies of my 5-year-old boy and will also be useful when my new boy is coming next month. Sum up, it is a good camera with 3 inch display in $200 range, and Yes I would recommend this to my friends.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what my wife ane i were looking for I use this camare to take pictures of my kids when we go on week-ends trips. it is verry compact and fitsjust about anywear and the picturs look good. I expected for this camare to take the pictures faster. Its too slow. When my kids are on some type of rides or just running oround i got to take the picture and the already have gone by me. When i order it it said point and shoot. other then that its a good product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool to look at, easy to use The initial atttraction of this model was the touch screen and stylus write on mode which are extremely efficient and easy to use. Initial set up was easy as is using the camera as it is mostly self explanatory. The only downfall is photos taken at night where the lights tend to glare (even when in night mode). I would buy this camera again as it is small and hi tech.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coolpix S230 Digital Camera (Jet Black) I use this camera as an everyday camera and at this time it is my only camera. So far I have not found any thing about the camera that I do not like. As I have stated above I can find nothing wrong with the camera. The operator gets a few things wrong once in a while bur that problem can not be blamed on the camera.
