Nikon coolpix S220 Digital camera
  

Nikon Coolpix S220 - hyperfine camera with 10 megapixel resolution, made in a thin and light chassis. Coolpix S220 is equipped with a 3-folded Nikon lens technology with VR, which vibration is suppressed automatically, that provides clear and amazing images. Nikon Coolpix S220 has automatic choice of the plot, which itself selects camera settings for the frame that you want to remove. Quick processing allows the processing of images taken with insufficient lighting conditions. As a result, the image becomes sharp, bright and natural. In the initial changes are not made shots, and Nikon Coolpix S220 quickly makes a copy of the image, the best balance of contrast and saturation.The touch-screen S60 must be working out for the company, because it's added a second model for spring: the Coolpix S230, which has a cheaper touch-free sibling, the S220. Unlike with the S60, however, Nikon included a mechanical zoom switch rather than relying on the touch screen for zooming. Both cameras have 3x zoom lenses, 10-megapixel sensors, and 2.5-inch LCDs.



The anti-blur 4x avoids automatically blurred shots, four different ways. The function electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of the camera shake. The high sensitivity (up to ISO 2000) in the light decreases the risk of blurry photos when shooting moving subjects quickly or in low light. Motion detection compensates for subject movement and camera. The function selector image (BSS) automatically chooses the sharpest picture from ten consecutive shots. The advanced Face-priority AF correction with soft red-eye can detect under up to 12 faces, and to focus specifically on them. This function corrects the impaired eye color due to flash at the instant of the shooting.

Image Quality of Nikon coolpix s220 Digital camera

Image Quality of Nikon coolpix s220 Digital camera

While the picture issued by the Coolpix S220 remains generally correct, but well below our expectations. The flash overexposed the scene and the high lights are burned. In auto mode and the flash, the sensitivity of the device is increased to 400 ISO. The details are smoothed, for as we shall see, the management of electronic noise is not the highlight of the S220. In our studio, white balance is low enough. A rather surprising result, because the other devices of the mark we were more accustomed to a record warm yellow with a fairly marked. However the problem of purple fringes, present in the form of large purple borders. These are inevitable even for small runs and even more visible on our A4 test. The camera has no optical stabilization, but a stabilization VR (e) which works quite well. Macro mode, it disappoints a bit by its focus to 10 cm. The movie mode offers moving images rather satisfactory, with a classical format (640 x 480).



The management of electronic noise is somewhat disappointing. From 80 ISO (sensitivity is the lowest available) we note the presence of colored pixels and a light smoothing. Granulation is contained up to 400 ISO, but the smoothing increasingly dynamic and already very small sensor degrades. At ISO 800 and 1600, the granulation takes over and smoothing becomes very important.This monitor has received an anti-reflection coating, so you even in bright sunlight a clear picture. The camera is only 18 mm thick and weighs 100 grams. This is hardly a burden to them. Nikon makes it easy to get every opportunity to lay down. The Nikon lens with 3x zoom with extreme precision know your topic. You made the images in 10 megapixels. Enough to be cut without losing quality.

The S220 has only 4 features to focus photos being added. The vibration reduction corrects sensor shift with small movements that make your photos blurry. Motion corrects the larger movements of the camera and the subject. Photos in a dark environment obtained by the high ISO of 2000. The Best Shot Selector, the S220 ten consecutive recordings. This series will choose the function itself the sharpest image.You may prefer them in the picture. Yet it is difficult to make a good portrait. And group portraits are certainly a challenge. Therefore, the Nikon Coolpix S220 is packed with features that help you. Advanced face-priority AF, on 12 faces simultaneously sharp. You can somebody from this group in the sun set. Those chosen must be his most beautiful smile design. The Nikon Coolpix S220 is only a picture as they all smile teeth exposed. Dense eyes are not tolerated. The detection of blinking eyes warns when the eyes are closed.
