The Nikon coolpix S52 - Versatility reaches new heights

The new COOLPIX S52 captures exceptional images with 9.0 megapixels and a 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens. Optical VR Image Stabilization minimizes the effect of camera shake, while the huge, bright 3.0-inch LCD makes it easy to share pictures with friends and family, even in bright sunlight. Auto ISO adjusts up to ISO 3200, allowing for easy shooting in low light.

9.0 Megapixels for stunning prints as large as 16 x 20 inches. Plenty of sharp resolution to capture the finest details, crop creatively and produce incredible enlargements.

3x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR (38-114mm) Lens provides exceptional pictures. This lens is built on Nikon's proud heritage of producing precision camera optics that deliver superb color and razor-sharp results.

New EXPEED Image Processor ensures high-quality pictures with stunning color and sharpness. Nikon's comprehensive digital imaging processing concept incorporates the know-how and the technologies acquired throughout our long history of photographic and digital imaging development. EXPEED is customer-tuned for COOLPIX and renders natural-looking pictures of incredible quality and quick response so you won't miss that special moment.

Optical Vibration Reduction Image Stabilization compensates for camera shake to prevent blur and produce clearer, sharper results in lower light or unsteady conditions. In addition, the benefit of Nikon's VR system extends to faster framing on the monitor and smoother action in the S52's movie mode

Huge, Bright 3.0-inch High-Resolution LCD offers 170-degrees wide-angle of view making it easy to compose shots and play them back anywhere. The ultra-wide 170-degree viewing angle makes it easy for you to share your pictures with everyone at once. In addition, the high-contrast and anti-reflection coating on the screen assist in clear viewing, even in direct sunlight.

Slim, Stylish All-Metal Design slips right into your shirt pocket or purse! Not only is the camera easy to carry around, it is great to be seen with. Nikon's beautiful wave-surface design and sweeping lines make it the camera that takes great pictures, and looks great doing it!

Auto adjusts up to ISO 3200 making new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking pictures in lower light conditions.

There is no more fumbling through menus or worrying about pressing the wrong button. With the One-Touch Portrait Button on the top of the camera, it's as easy as a single press of one button to get a great portrait?without red-eye.

Nikon Image Innovations include: In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, which will automatically look for and fix most instances of red-eye; Face Priority AF is Nikon's face-finding technology that can quickly find and focus on up to five faces in a group portrait; and D-Lighting will rescue those pictures that are too dark for printing by enhancing the underexposed areas of the picture while not touching the properly exposed areas.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S52 Digital Camera (Red):

I purchase this for my wife and she loves it. she has a Canon 20D and uses this for trips, school, video, and when she doesn't want to lug the big Canon around. She learned to use the camera without any problems out of the box. I gave her a couple of pointers and she was off and running with the camera. She loves the big 3 inch screen. She loves the red color.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S52 Digital Camera (Red):

Fits the bill in every aspect. This is my third Nikon with all of them producing great photos. I believe the lens quality must be what accounts for the great quality of the photos. The instructions are very clear, so setting up the camera, etc. is no problem. Camera readily fits in your shirt pocket and is easily ready to go for those quick-take shots. I would have no reservations recommending this camera to any potential buyer.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S52 Digital Camera (Red):

Nice video quality. Very good macros with the macro mode. I would use this as an extra camera with my D40x SLR. I'd get a second battery for it cause its supposed to last for about 100 shots but the preview screen kills it fast. Very nice if you go to a lot of concerts and the 3200 ISO should come in handy. I also have to get some sort of screen protection and if it's available body protection.

Comments about Nikon Coolpix S52 Digital Camera (Red):

I thought this camera would be a great buy considering it was a NIKON, but boy was I wrong. The shutter speed is extremely slow (even with the highest ISO) compared to my sisters Canon sd1000 powershot(which was 100$ less). The pictures look abysmal when you try to review them. I'm not sure if it's the screen or just the quality. (although i had it set at the highest MP) It had a gritty grainy look to it, not CRISP at all. I've received complaints taking pictures of my friends because the flash flashes multiple times just for one picture. The controls are also complicated. I see no point to the "scene" button that's included. the option to have picmotion slideshow is pretty neat. I would prefer a charger that's hooked up to the wall instead of a long cord attached to a rectangular receptacle (very inconvenient for travel). bottom line-i would not use this camera for pictures for sports events or travels because you never know what you're going to get. i prefer a consistent performance with a camera. I thought the performance of Nikon's SLR cameras would translate to their commercial digital cams but i guess not.
