New EXPEED Image Processing System - Top-of-the-line performance and stunning image quality are staples of the Coolpix P50. Sporting the new EXPEED image processing system combined with enhanced high sensitivity capabilities to ensure the best picture quality. The EXPEED image processing system enhances noise reduction and improves the signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio that preserves image quality even when shooting at higher ISO settings. The P50 extends the light sensitivity range to ISO 2000, which makes it easier to capture fast moving subjects, even in lower light conditions.

Simple Yet Advanced Functionality - P50 users can also take advantage of the new mode dial which provides quick access to a selection of 15 different scene-optimized modes, movie modes, and macro mode. The new graphical user interface has enhanced the pop-up design, and allows for more precise menu navigation and interaction. Nikon has incorporated its user-friendly Imaging Innovations into the P50 Coolpix camera, designed to make the photo-taking process easier and more intuitive. These technologies, referred to as Nikon In-Camera Innovations include In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, D-Lighting, and Face Priority AF. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically detects and corrects red eye, a common condition that occurs in flash photography. In playback mode, D-Lighting compensates for excessive back-light or insufficient flash in images. The P50 has PictBridge support and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.

Nikon''s enhanced Face-Priority AF automatically finds and focuses on one person''s face or up to 12 people''s faces within one frame. Face-Priority AF provides faster speed and sharper focus to produce clear, crisp portraits wherever the subjects are positioned in the frame.

VR Electronic Image Stabilization - VR Electronic Image Stabilization takes camera movement data from a built-in angular velocity sensor and applies in-camera image processing to turn blurred images into beautifully clear results, on the spot or anytime later.

Optical Viewfinder - Keep taking great pictures in any type of light. The optical viewfinder enables you to compose your picture even when the sun is at its brightest.

ISO 2000 capability - Extended light sensitivity range of ISO 50 to ISO 2000 and the new image-processing engine''s ability to preserve high image quality at high ISO settings provide new opportunities to shoot more effectively in lower lighting conditions.

Advanced Shooting Modes - The new improved Mode dial provides quick access to greater personal control over camera operation and the unlimited creative possibilities offered by Programmed Auto [P] and Manual [M] exposure modes

8.1 Megapixels of Pure Imaging Power - That''s plenty of sharp resolution to capture the finest details, crop creatively and produce beautiful enlargements. Optimizing performance and color reproduction is an advanced new image processing engine. And the quality optics of a 28-102mm Zoom-Nikkor lens (35mm equivalent) maximizes compositional freedom.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix P50 Digital Camera:

I just purchased this camera after careful consideration. What sold me was the 28mm wide angle and the comfortable grip. I find I sometimes hit the preview button accidently as it is too close to the curser dial. That is about the only nitpic I have so far, but that could be my fumbly fat thumbs problem! Other wise this camera is great for what I intend to use it, fun and travel. The pictures are great and I love the D-light feature.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix P50 Digital Camera:

I just got this camera for Christmas and the first thought that comes to mind is, I love it!! Very easy to use but not just for a beginner. There are so many options (not just automatic settings) that I haven't yet had the time to explore and utilize. I'm looking forward to that part!!
