Fantastic Color -- Solid 7 Stylish NIKON camera

by GeekyElectronics on 6/9/2009

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.

Product Overview

The Coolpix S52 combines Nikon's stunning wave-surface camera body with advanced features designed to produce incredible pictures with ease. With 9.0 effective megapixels, a 3x, 38-114mm Zoom-Nikkor lens, and manual sensitivity settings as high as ISO 3200, the Coolpix S52 is for anyone looking for a stunning camera that takes equally stunning photos.

The Coolpix S52 also features Optical VR Image Stabilization technology, which compensates for camera shake, as well as ISO capabilities up to 3200, which provide more opportunities to capture fast moving subjects and greater flexibility and clarity when shooting in low-light settings. These cameras also boast an Auto ISO control, which automatically selects the optimal sensitivity across a range between ISO 100 and ISO 800, and up to ISO 2000 in High-Sensitivity mode.

Providing even more control and freedom in photo taking, the S52 comes with a 3x Zoom-Nikkor lens designed to capture brilliant detail and vivid colors in every photo and a huge 3.0-inch high-resolution LCD screen allowing easy sharing and viewing of images. Also, these new cameras are built on Nikon's innovative EXPEED digital image processing system designed to enhance noise reduction and improve the signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio.

Like all cameras in the Coolpix line, the S52 includes Nikon's unique image innovations including enhanced Face-priority AF, which automatically finds and focuses on up to five faces within the frame; In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, which can automatically detect and correct red eye in a photo; and D-Lighting, which compensates for excessive backlight or insufficient flash in images.
