creative effects at your disposal View larger.
Nikon design goes beyond slim contours and sophisticated operation by engineering a precision wide-angle 10x zoom, NIKKOR ED glass lens into the thinnest camera in its class.* With wide through super-telephoto coverage, the creative freedom afforded by this new lens forms a perfect blend with the other creative features of the COOLPIX S8000.
* Among compact cameras equipped with an optical zoom lens capable of zooming in at 10x or more as of December 29, 2009 (according to research conducted by Nikon Corporation).Creative Slider is the fun new way to express your creative side
Creative Slider places a rich variety of creative effects at your disposal when shooting in Auto Mode. Adjust brightness, saturation and color tone using the handy Rotary Multi Selector, all while watching a real-time preview on the 7.5 cm (3-in.) LCD monitor.Four advanced image stabilization features ensure sharper results
Advanced flash control combines with lens shift VR image stabilization, advanced Motion Detection, and ISO 1600 capability at any image size up to its maximum (4320 x 3240), to help ensure consistently sharp results.
VR image Stabilisation: produce
blur-free images View larger.
Nikon VR technologies help you produce blur-free images when shooting in low light or unsteady conditions. Some COOLPIX models offer Lens or Sensor shift VR, which compensates for camera shake to deliver sharp images and steadier framing with the monitor. Other models offer Electronic VR, which applies movement data to image-processing to turn blurred images into beautifully clear results. Motion Detection automatically selects a faster shutter speed and higher ISO (light sensitivity) setting to compensate for subject movement or camera shake.High-Definition movie recording
A dedicated Movie button makes it easy to record up to 1.5 hours* of 720p HD movie with stereo sound. (*Recording stops automatically after 29 minutes. This figure is based on in-house testing standards and stated for recording at 25¡C with a fully charged EN-EL12 battery. Actual results may vary greatly depending on factors that include differences in ambient temperature, and the amount of zoom and autofocus operations used.)Clear Colour Display
Nikon's innovative Clear Colour Display technology improves visibility for a more vivid, clearer image preview and playback.
High Sensitivity: capture subjects
beautifully in low light View larger.
High ISO capability helps capture subjects beautifully in low light, without compromising natural light or requiring long exposure time. By enabling the selection of faster shutter speeds, it also makes it easier to capture fast-moving subjects with greater clarity. NikonÕs Scene Auto Selector provides quick, carefree picture-taking in a variety of situations by determining the subject and surrounding conditions, and then automatically selecting the appropriate scene mode for the shot.
Face-priority AF & Smile Mode
Whether photographing individuals or groups, Face-priority AF detects as many as 12 faces and adjusts exposure across the frame to help ensure beautiful portraits at a press of the shutter button. Smile Mode automatically releases the shutter when your subject smiles to help faithfully record the moment.Blink Warning, Blink Proof & In-Camera Red-Eye Fix
Blink Warning notifies you when a subject blinks during exposure, allowing you to immediately retake the shot. Blink Proof shoots two pictures and saves the one in which the subjectÕs eyes are wide open. This function automatically analyzes the captured image and corrects any perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory. Some models also offer pre-flash.Subject Tracking & Skin Softening
Subject Tracking enhances your shooting experience by following the movement of your subject. Leveraging built-in face-detection technology to ensure smooth skin tone on the face of subjects, Skin Softening can be applied in a choice of three adjustment levels.
