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 find 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.
