The COOLPIX S4200 — Everything under control.
Colorful and portable: boasts a slim 20.8 mm body available in a range of rich colors.
7.5 cm (3.0-in.) 460k-dot LCD touchscreen: enjoy intuitive fingertip control for shooting and playback thanks to smooth touch technology and a responsive menu.
16 MP: the 16-megapixel CCD image sensor lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, make creative image crops and produce superb poster-size enlargements.
NIKKOR wide-angle 6x zoom lens (26–156mm): from group shots to close-ups, this lens offers superb precision and sharp resolution, so you can capture moments with ease.
Crisp 720p video recording: record life in motion with ease. A dedicated movie-record button makes it easy to begin recording.
Retouch Menu: enhance your photos in-camera with a range of filter effects. Includes Selective Color, which converts your image to monochrome then adds a splash of color to an area of your choice.
e-VR (electronic vibration reduction): capture steady photos and movies thanks to Nikon’s automatic vibration reduction technology, which reduces the effect of camera shake.
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 the flash.
19 scene modes: scene modes automatically optimize the camera settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations. Achieve great shots just by selecting the mode that 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.
Wireless transfer: compatible with Eye-Fi X2 (or later) cards. Transmit your digital photos (in JPEG format) directly to your phone or personal computer, and then connect to the Internet to take advantage of Nikon’s photo sharing service, my Picturetown.
EXPEED C2 image processing system provides enhanced movie recording, high-sensitivity performance and maximum image quality.
