The COOLPIX S2600 — simple, sharp, stylish.
Slender style: with a distinctive-looking 19.5 mm body that slips easily into any pocket, you get to maintain your sense of style wherever you go.
NIKKOR wide-angle 5x zoom lens (26-130mm): from group shots to close ups, this lens offers superb precision and sharp resolution, so you can capture moments with ease.
14 MP: the 14 megapixel CCD image sensor lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, crop creatively and produce stunningly-sharp poster-size enlargements.
6.7 cm (2.7-in.) LCD screen: the large LCD monitor with wide viewing angle offers clear shooting and playback.
Crisp 720p video recording : record moments in motion at the touch of a button. A dedicated movie-record button makes it easy to begin recording the action.
Anti-blur: e-VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of camera shake. High ISO (up to 3200) light sensitivity reduces blurred images in low light. Motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. Best shot selector (BSS) selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots.
Smart portrait system: snap perfect portraits every time. Smile timer takes the shot when your subject smiles. Blink proof alerts you when someone’s eyes were closed. Skin softening adjusts uneven skin tones for smoother looking skin. Red-eye Fix corrects false eye color due to flash.
Retouch Menu: enhance your photos in-camera with a range of filter effects. Includes options such as Selective Color, which converts your image to monochrome then adds a splash of color to an area of your choice, and Cross Screen, which lends a starry effect to bright objects.
Scene Auto Selector selects the optimum Scene mode for the situation you’re shooting in, so all you need to do is point and shoot.
18 scene modes: scene modes automatically optimize the camera settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations. Achieve great shots just by selecting the mode to matches your situation.
Subject Tracking AF: capture sharp shots of subjects that can’t or won’t stay still. Subject Tracking AF keeps the camera focused on a selected subject even if it is moving around.
EXPEED C2 image processing system provides enhanced movie recording, high-sensitivity performance and maximum image quality.
