The world’s fastest(*1) 8.1 megapixel camera with the smallest stainless steel body in its class(*2) and a range of advanced features. Designed to prioritize style, speed and reliability as highly as you, the COOLPIX S510’s staggeringly swift response capabilities combine with a rotary multi-selector for more intuitive operation, powerful image stabilization technology and ISO 2000 sensitivity to deliver a performance sharp enough to capture the moment without missing a beat.
This camera is available in silver, pink and Urban Black.
*1) Among competing 8 megapixel models equipped with optical vibration reduction as of August 30, 2007 (according to research conducted by NIKON CORPORATION), and when set to “Response priority” mode.
*2) Among models equipped with optical vibration reduction as of August 30, 2007 (according to research conducted by NIKON CORPORATION).
8.1 megapixel resolution means sharp images even after enlargement or cropping.
World’s fastest response *: 0.7 seconds power-up and fast release-time lag (under 0.005 seconds when Response Priority mode is set). *) Among competing 8 megapixel models equipped with optical vibration reduction as of August 30, 2007 (according to research conducted by NIKON CORPORATION), and when set to “Response priority” mode.
EXPEED image processing engine for optimum performance and maximum image quality.
2.5-inch acrylic LCD monitor : 160-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angle. With protective acrylic panel to help prevent scratches and fingerprints, and anti-reflection coating to simplify shooting in bright sunlight.
Optical 3x Zoom-NIKKOR lens : for incredibly sharp, clear images. 35mm equivalent of 35mm-105mm.
High sensitivity up to ISO 2000 : enables faster shutter speeds to significantly reduce the risk of blurry images when you shoot fast-moving subjects or take pictures in low light.
Optical Vibration Reduction image stabilization system counters the effects of camera shake to produce sharp images and movies and deliver clear images in low light by offering effects equivalent to using a shutter speed 3 stops faster.
High Sensitivity mode : minimizes image blur by automatically selecting the optimal light setting from ISO 64 to ISO 1600 to match the scene at hand.
World’s smallest stainless steel body *: extremely durable and the most compact camera in its class. *) Models equipped with optical vibration reduction as of August 30, 2007 (according to research conducted by NIKON CORPORATION).
Advanced Face-priority AF can quickly detect and focus on up to 12 faces in the frame, and works together with Face-priority AE to meter the lighting around the face for more accurate exposure.
Rotary multi-selector enhances easy operation.
