Nikon 25581B overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon Coolpix S700 Digital Camera features an elegant stainless steel body, 3x Zoom-Nikkor glass lens, 12.1 megapixel resolution, plus several imaging innovations designed to encourage carefree shooting. It incorporates Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization, to overcome camera shake and ensure sharp photos at shutter speeds up to three times slower than would normally be possible, and also incorporates a High ISO of ISO 3200 for capturing images in low-light situations.

The camera features Nikon In-Camera Innovations that include In-Camera Red-Eye Fix that automatically detects and corrects red eye, a common condition that occurs in flash photography, D-Lighting which compensates for excessive back-light or insufficient flash in images, and Nikon's enhanced Face-Priority AF that can automatically finds and focuses on up to 12 people's faces within one frame. This feature also provides faster speed and sharper focus to produce clear, crisp portraits wherever the subjects are positioned in the frame. The S700 also offers Distortion Control that automatically corrects for barrel distortion, making this an ideal camera for cityscapes and interior photography.

Advanced performance is particularly pronounced in this camera, delivering remarkably fast response including a start-up time of less than one second, and a shutter lag of 5 milliseconds. Furthermore, Nikon's EXPEED processing engine gives the S700 enhanced image processing and brilliant color reproduction. Finally, the camera has a bright, high resolution 2.7-inch LCD monitor with an anti-reflective coating, easing the composition of photos, even in direct sunlight.

12.1 Megapixel Resolution
With 12.1 million pixels of image information, the Nikon Coolpix S700 can produce stunning, photo quality prints up to 30" x 40".
3x Optical Zoom-Nikkor Lens
The high quality Zoom Nikkor Lens provides a 3x optical zoom (37mm-111mm equivalent) while the Macro capability lets you get as close as 2.4" to your subject. The lens also has a maximum aperture of f/2.8 for improved low light shooting.
Optical VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
The lens of the Coolpix S700 incorporates Nikon's optical lens shift VR (Vibration Reduction) system, which compensates for camera movements to produce sharper, steadier images. And because the VR system remains active whenever the camera is on, images also appear more stable on the LCD monitor, making it much easier to judge the right moment to take the shot.
Slim, Stylish, Stainless Steel Body
With a slim, sophisticated Design this ultra-compact digital camera easily slips right into your shirt pocket or purse, and its good looks are complemented by incredible durability due to the Stainless Steel casing.
Quick Response
Nikon's EXPEED processing engine not only provides for superior image quality, but also makes the Coolpix S700 extremely responsive with a power up time within 0.9 seconds and a shutter delay of only .005 seconds.
Light Sensitivity up to ISO 3200
High light sensitivity up to ISO 3200 allows you to tackle scenes and situations that many compact cameras cannot, with the power to capture fast-moving objects with outstanding clarity and gives you great exposures in lower light.
Nikon In-Camera Innovations
Taking great pictures is easy with Nikon's exclusive In-Camera Innovations. These impressive features include the Red-Eye Fix system which 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 D-Lighting feature that 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; and the Face-Priority AF system that automatically detects and achieves sharp focus on people's faces wherever they are in the frame for crisp, sharp portraits.
15 Scene Modes
The Coolpix S700 incorporates 15 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.
Movie and Voice Recording
Shoot TV-quality (640x480 @ 30 fps) QuickTime movies with sound with the clip length limited only by the available space on the internal memory or your memory card. The Voice Memo Function Records up to 20 seconds of sound that can then be attached to an image.
Auto Image Rotation
The Auto Image Rotation feature detects pictures that have been taken with the camera held vertically and automatically rotates the image for in-camera LCD playback.
Rotary Multi Selector
The Rotary Multi Selector enables easier camera use. Swift circular scrolling action allows speedy image browsing at up to 10 pictures per second, and a range of buttons ensures intuitive operation. An onscreen icon with a cursor that tracks Rotary Multi Selector scrolling makes it easy to select various features.
Built-in and Expandable Memory
The camera includes 52MB 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) or Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory cards.
Bright 2.7-inch LCD
The Coolpix S700 is equipped with a bright 2.7" LCD that is great for viewing images anywhere, anytime. The impressive 230,000 pixel resolution of the display makes your images look bright and sharp while the anti-reflective coating reduces glare so the display is easier to view in bright light.
Print Directly to a Printer or Show Pictures on a TV
You can send images directly to print, without the need of a PC, when using PictBridge and USB Direct Print compatible printers, or connect directly to your TV for family slide shows and presentations. The camera is also compatible with ImageLink printers with the included PV-17 Camera Dock Insert.

Nikon 25581B reviews

Coolpix S700 Digital Camera (Silver) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very positive initial impressions I have not had the camera long enough to test and evaluate all of its features or to discover any potential short comings. I took some photos of my home as a test of doing a comprehensive photo inventory for insurance purposes. I liked the quick recycle time, the parallel line correction feature, the quality of the finished prints and the user friendly controls and viewing screen. I plan to use the camera to make enlargements, but have not tested that function. The small size of the camera makes it an easy to take it on trips, excursions and social events. I expect this to be a big benefit when I take it on an Alaskan cruise in the near future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nikon Coolpix S700 Nice camera BUT... Sure would be a better camera if it had a wider lens... At least a 28mm ! It also needs to be able to capture a RAW file ! Would also be a better camera if you could use a screw in polarizer without having to use some kind of adapter. Holding filters up to your lens isn't the way to go !Add these features and you would have a GREAT camera... Expertise: Pro Photographer Problems Encountered: See my review / dream list for the camera above ! Previous Equivalent Item Owned: D-200, D2x, F-5, Coolpix S3 Items I Recommend: Extra battery and a 2gb memory card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon is always reliable! The Coolpix S700 Digital Camera is another winner by Nikon! It is easy to use, provides the best picture quality, and is compact enough to fit anywhere. The pictures from this camera and as good as the ones from my SLR. I would definately recommend this camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have bought this product 3 times. Casual photographer. This is my 3rd camera of this model, 1st dropped in cup of tea, 2nd lost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny camera packs quite a punch I came across the Nikon s700 while looking at a Canon and was almost instantly hooked. A trip to the store was all that was needed to seal it -- the Nikon proved to be everything promised: its really compact size and excellent picture quality make it a winner. The camera's rapid response rate (not just shutter speed, the camera has one of the fastest start up speeds available, ensuring you don't miss a shot) and ease of use (no time wasted clicking through long lists of confusing menus; though there a range of options and settings should you wish to play around or change them, everything is more or less where'd you expect it to be) are phenominal. The bottom line: this camera is easy to use, quite compact, and takes great pictures. The LCD is also huge, so reviewing pictures is quick and easy. However, I sometimes worry that the camera feels a bit fragile due to the small, light size, large LCD, and lense. The LCD is so huge, I'm worried it's just asking for scratches and grease marks...though Nikon assures me it is scratch-resistant, and so far has proven easy to clean off. When the camera is turned on, the lense also sticks out very prominently, so droppig it at the right angle might mean the end of the line. But the camera seems to be sturdier than it appears: I've dropped it onto a tile floor and it doesn't have a scratch on it. Very good buy!
