COOLPIX S2700 Primary Features

Equipped with a 6x optical NIKKOR lens for wide-angle to zoom shooting with a single lens, in a slim body The COOLPIX S2700 features a 6x optical zoom-NIKKOR lens for coverage of a broad range of view from wide-angle 26mm to 156mm (equivalent in 35-mm [135] format) in a stylish and slim body. This allows for shooting a variety of everyday scenes with simple operation, and even close-ups of people up to about 5 cm from the front of the lens. Extensive automatic shooting functions let first-time users enjoy advanced simple shooting.

The S2700 features Scene Auto Selector mode which instructs the camera to automatically select the optimal scene mode for the subject or scene. By simply pointing the camera at the desired object, the camera will determine the optimal scene mode out of the six that are available (Portrait, Night Portrait, Landscape, Night Landscape, Backlight and Close-up). This allows users to capture beautiful images of a wide variety of subjects without the need to change settings.

Image-editing functions before or after photos are captured With the S2700’s Special Effects menu, users can pre-select a desired colour and tone effect prior to shooting. After a photo has been taken, users can apply in-camera Filter Effects for simple image adjustments and enhancements without the need for a computer.

Advanced basic performance With features such as Motion Detection, which automatically increases shutter speeds by detecting camera shake along with the movement and speed of the subject, the COOLPIX S2700 lets users capture sharper pictures with less blur. Subject Tracking AF locks focus on a moving subject, particularly useful when capturing children or pets at play, and ensures sharp focus and quick response.
