The COOLPIX S630 comes with a NIKKOR 7x zoom lens which offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution with a 35mm equivalent range of 37 – 260mm. The S630's 4x anti-blur automatically counters blurred images in four different ways. Sensor-shift VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of camera shake. High ISO light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images with fast-moving subjects or in low-light. Motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots.

    Beyond the 12 megapixels image sensor, the COOLPIX S630's photographic feature incorporates the Smart portrait system (advanced automatic features for perfect portraits), Smile Mode (takes the shot when your chosen subject smiles), Blink Warning (alerts you when someone had their eyes closed), Blink Proof (takes two pictures and saves the one where your subject's eyes are open) and Advanced Face Priority AF (lets you quickly detect and focus accurately on up to 12 faces in the frame). The COOLPIX S630 also comes with the Scene Auto Selector which selects the optimum Scene mode for popular photographic situations. The large 2.7-inch LCD with wide viewing angle and anti-reflection coating ensures that you have good visibility even in bright sunlight when composing or viewing photos with the S630.

    Main Features

    - 12.0 Megapixels for stunning prints as large as 16 x 20 inches. This is plenty of sharp resolution to capture the finest details, crop creatively and produce incredible enlargements.

    - 7x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR (37-260mm) Glass Lens - NIKKOR optics provide exceptional images. The lens is built on a proud heritage of producing precision camera optics that deliver superb color and razor-sharp results. This amazing compact lens offers unbeatable compositional freedom with its wide-angle (37mm) to super telephoto coverage (260mm). Sweeping landscapes can be captured as well as zoomed-in close-ups of the action taking place on the baseball or soccer field - all this from a camera that can slip right into your shirt pocket or purse!

    - New EXPEED Image Processor ensures high-quality pictures with stunning color and sharpness. Nikon's comprehensive digital imaging processing concept incorporates know-how and technologies accumulated throughout our long history of photographic and digital imaging development. EXPEED is custom-tuned for COOLPIX and applies optimized technologies to render natural-looking pictures of incredible quality. With the quick response made possible by EXPEED you will not miss that special moment.

    - 4 Way VR Image Stabilization:

    * Nikon's Optical VR Image Stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by moving the image sensor. This produces clearer, sharper results in lower lighting or unsteady conditions.

    * Motion Detection automatically detects moving subjects and adjusts shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for camera shake and subject movement.

    * High ISO up to 6400 capability helps give you sharper results when shooting in low light or capturing fast-moving subjects. This creates new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking photos in lower light conditions. ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 is available at 3MP or lower resolution.

    * Nikon's original Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically takes up to 10 shots while the shutter is pressed and then saves the sharpest image.

    - Incredible, Bright 2.7-inch High Resolution LCD makes it easy to compose and share your pictures with friends and family.

    - Scene Auto Selector automatically recognizes the scene in your picture and adjusts the camera settings. Just set the camera to the Scene Auto Selector and the camera changes the settings according to the scene you are photographing, automatically!

    - New Sports Continuous Scene Mode for shooting at up to 11fps, up to 20 frames, when you set the resolution to 3MP or lower. These high-speed capture settings help you stay ahead of the action. Whether it is a swift golf or baseball swing, to the fast action on the soccer field. At 11fps, you will capture that action.

    - Nikon's Smart Portrait System:

    * In-Camera Red-Eye Fix™ automatically fixes most instances of red-eye in the camera. You may never see red-eye again.

    * Enhanced Face-Priority AF is Nikon's face-finding technology that automatically focuses on up to 12 faces.

    * Smile Mode automatically releases the shutter when your subject smiles. The camera will detect the subject's smile and will automatically fire the shutter.

    * NEW Blink Proof enables the camera to take two pictures when the subject smiles and saves the shot in which the subject's eyes are open.

    * D-Lighting rescues dark or backlit images by improving brightness and detail where needed.
