Fantastic Color -- Solid 7 Stylish NIKON camera6/9/2009
When it comes to electronics, I'm very critical. Both my wife and I are care a great deal about image quality, we chose this NIKON S52 and never regrets it. 1) Huge 3" LCD with 230K lumens/dpi clearly viewable under sun-light -- this is critical to share how the picture looks after you take it. 2) Great lighting control -- thanks to the legendary patented NIKKOR lens from NIKON's industry leading lens-crafting technology. 3) Superb shutter speed thanks to enhanced processor. Nothing beats more internal memory and functionality that actually matters. Fast Shutter Speed is one of them that you want when it comes to camera. This NIKON delivers. 4) Rechargable Lithium-ion battery -- unlike cheaper DC that uses AA battery, Lithium-ion is the way to go. You can go for 4 - 8 hours of use or technically, use up the whole storage of a 4GB SD card twice before you need a recharge. 5) Impressive Color Depth: you can see the reflection of a button on your shirt, literally! The maximum setting allow you to print 16 x 20 poster without sacrificing any pixel quality. Highly recommended to photo lovers of all ages.
