Nikon has been a specialist in the optics and imaging business since 1917. Mixing Japanese quality with a philosophy of trustworthiness and creativity, Nikon is the world’s second largest manufacturer in its field. From this photographic powerhouse comes the Nikon COOLPIX S6400 – one of three in the new COOLPIX S series of Nikon cameras.
Off the bat, this digital compact camera is distinctive to others in its curved, rather than boxy, design. In terms of its photographic capabilities, the camera houses a 12 x optical zoom lens that produces a pixel count of 16.0-million pixels and a coverage of angles for focal lenths ranging from wide-angle 25mm to 300mm. Most notable is the COOLPIX S6400’s use of a touchscreen panel. This allows users to quickly focus and snap pictures at the same time without the fuss of manual knobs and settings. For quick stylistic photos, the camera also allows for photos to be immediately edited with photo filters that give an Instagram flavour, and other standard settings such as Vivid and Pop. The camera also has a video function that captures 1080i video at 30fps.
The COOLPIX S6400 is a striking handheld camera that comes in a variety of colours including silver, black, red, light blue and light purple. For those seeking to capture moments beautifully with minimal effort and professional photographic knowledge, the Nikon COOLPIX S6400 is an ideal companion for all occassions.
