Nikon S6500 overview

  • 1Description

The red Nikon COOLPIX S6500 Digital Camera is a point-and-shoot with a 16MP CMOS image sensor that enables you to capture low-light shots without a flash. When the light is just too low, the built-in flash is there to provide extra illumination. The camera also has a 3.0" LCD with HVGA resolution. The 12x zoom NIKKOR glass lens covers a wide-angle to telephoto effective focal length range of 4.5-54.0mm, equivalent to 25-300mm in 35mm format. This makes it great for group shots, close-up portraits, and everything in-between. Lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps keep every shot steady, even if your hands are not, by compensating for camera shake. Maximum ISO sensitivity is 3200.

Built-in Wi-Fi enables you to share your photos and videos quickly and easily via the Internet. Instantly send photos and videos to your compatible smartphone, tablet or other Wi-Fi-enabled device. Then, email or upload to your favorite social media or photo album sites.

Hold down the shutter button to shoot in continuous mode at up to 7fps to freeze motion without blur--ensuring you don't miss those shots from fast-action sequences. Capture Full HD 1080p video with stereo sound, as well.

Subject Tracking automatically locks onto a moving subject and keeps it in focus until you're ready to take the shot. Motion Detection helps you produce sharper results by automatically selecting a faster shutter speed and higher ISO (light sensitivity) setting to compensate for subject movement or camera shake.

The Smart Portrait System activates Face Priority AF, Skin Softening, Blink Warning and more for ideal portraits. A catalogue of 20 Scene Modes, such as Beach, Snow, Night Portrait, and Sunset, are ready to go instantly: just select the one you want and the camera will automatically use the appropriate settings to get the best shot. You can also choose Scene Auto Selector and let the camera pick the right mode for you.
