Nikon Coolpix S5
PAGE 1/3
Nikon Corporation is delighted to announce an exciting new camera, the Nikon Coolpix S5. The Nikon S5 has been built with the sharing and enjoyment of digital photography in mind, combining high-quality imaging performance with a striking wave-surface design, the ability to improve images in-camera, outstandingly large LCDs and a powerful new Pictmotion function that allows users to create entertaining in-camera shows. The Nikon Coolpix S5 digital camera has been specially designed to be visually appealing as well as easy to use. The eye-catching wave-surface designs are more than just about great styling, its thin, compact dimension and form make the Nikon Coolpix S5 really comfortable to hold.

Nikon S5 - Multimedia camera - The new Pictmotion function lets users create much more than just a slideshow, indeed it enables a radically new form of in-camera entertainment. This allows users to select favourite images and movie files, pick a style, and then select a music file from one of the five pre-installed files in the camera, or even add their own music via PictureProject for Windows only, to suit the show. Pictmotion then automatically analyses these elements to produce highly entertaining shows that are coupled with pace and transition selected to match the chosen music and style.

Nikon Coolpix S5 digital camera - LCD and 6 Megapixel - These shows can then be played back anywhere, anytime on the 2.5 inch LCD monitor, and because this monitor offers a surprisingly wide viewing angle of 170° (both horizontal and vertical), such in-camera entertainment can be enjoyed by everyone at the same time. The Nikon S5 also features+ Auto Image Rotation, which detects pictures that have been taken with the camera held vertically, automatically rotating them to suit in-camera LCD playback. With the Nikon Coolpix S5, image quality is a top priority: the camera offers a 1/2.5-inch CCD and 6.0 effective Megapixel resolution to produce images that stay sharp even when significantly enlarged. The Nikon S5 also features a high-quality 3x Zoom-Nikkor ED lens with a range of 35-105mm (35mm equivalent) that gives the photographer the flexibility to zoom out for beautiful landscapes, zoom in for tightly-composed portraits, and enjoy macro photography from as close as 4cm.

Nikon Coolpix S5 camera - Menu and Image - In terms of control, the Nikon Coolpix S5 camera features a new Rotary multi-selector that allows fast circular scrolling for speedy image browsing at up to 10 frames per second, a range of buttons that further simplify operation and an on-screen icon with a cursor that tracks circular scrolling, making it easy to select desired features. Furthermore, users can select functions by name or icon according to their personal preference, and all menus and icons have been made easier on the eye with a new color scheme and optimised icon dimensions.
Nikon S5 digital camera - Portrait and Auto focus - The Nikon Coolpix S5 also boasts a new One-touch portrait button, conveniently located at the top of the camera body, making it much simpler to take better quality pictures by offering easy access to Nikon's unique Face-priority AF, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix and D-Lighting functions. With Face-priority AF, the camera can automatically detect people's faces in the frame, no matter where they are located, to produce sharply focused portraits.
