Nikon S610c camera - Dimensions|
Practically defying their ultra-compact dimensions, the new Nikon S610c ultra-compact digital camera features a large 3.0-inch LCD monitor with a wide-viewing angle of 170 degrees and anti-reflection coating. And the Nikon Coolpix S610c wireless camera combines that with 10 megapixels of sharp resolution, a 4x Zoom-NIKKOR lens capable of 28mm wide-angle shooting (35mm format equivalent), and optical VR image stabilization to deliver outstanding image quality.
Nikon Coolpix S610c digital camera - ISO and Shooting modes
ISO 3200 support adds the power to shoot sharper, more natural-looking photos in lower lighting conditions and to capture fast-moving subjects with outstanding clarity. When shooting with high ISO settings, the new image-processing system dramatically improves the ability for clearer results and minimal noise. Automated shooting modes also aid in capturing beautiful pictures while enhancing the carefree shooting experience. Active Child Mode automatically tracks the movement of subjects such as children and pets to ensure that they are in clear focus. And Nikon’s new Scene Auto Selector automatically distinguishes the type setting in which the user is shooting and then selects the scene mode appropriate to that situation.

Nikon Automated and optimized shooting modes
In addition to Active Child Mode and Nikon’s new Scene Auto Selector, Smile Mode also helps enhance the carefree shooting experience by faithfully recording precious smiles in the brief instants they appear. And Food Mode makes it easy to capture delectable close-ups of cuisine at the dinner table.
Optical VR image stabilization
Optical lens shift VR (Vibration Reduction) is field proven technology originally developed for Nikon SLR camera lenses. It counteracts the effects of camera shake in lower light or when shooting unsteady subjects to help achieve sharper results and allow shooting at shutter speeds as much as three steps slower without blurring the image. Furthermore, Motion Detection automatically selects a higher ISO sensitivity setting to enable faster shutter speeds, and reduces the possibility of image blur for sharper pictures.

Nikon’s my Picturetown service can be accessed easily using the built-in Wi-Fi support of the Nikon Coolpix S610c. my Picturetown offers “anytime, anywhere” access that allows uploading, categorization and sharing of photos directly from the camera.
