Nikon's Coolpix S3100 Digital Camera (Purple) has everything you need in a compact camera, all beautifully contained in a stylish little pocketable package less than 1" thick, and weighing in at 4.2 oz (118 g). Start with a serious 14MP CCD sensor for great image quality, add a sharp 5x wide-angle Nikkor 26-130mm (equivalent in 35mm format) lens and a brilliant 2.7" LCD monitor with 230K-dot resolution.
The S3100 isn't just another pretty face, either--it's got one-touch 720p HD video, 4-way VR image stabilization to banish blurry pictures forever, sensitivity up to 3200 ISO that lets you keep shooting even when it gets dark, Subject Tracking Autofocus that locks onto a moving subject, keeping it in focus at all times, and a Macro mode that produces fantastic pictures by focusing as close as 4" from the lens.
The Smart Portrait System makes everybody you photograph look good, by automatically capturing a smile, warning you when someone blinks in a picture, automatically correcting red-eye and smoothing out wrinkles and blemishes on faces. There are 19 scene modes, including Pet Portrait, Night Landscape, Sports, Party/Indoor, Sunset, and lots more. This is a camera that's easy to live with, and will always treat you right.
