Go Get The Nikon Coolpix S570 To Snap Away With The Best Of Them

By Bradly Orso

The Nikon Coolpix S570 is the perfect companion for a day out. The wide-angle lens has a 12 x zoom that means you can shoot many different scenarios ranging from dinner with friends to a day on the mountain. Quality is lessened with the use of the zoom but not excessively so.

A digital camera is great because you and your friends can view the shots right away. A selector function allows for 10 best shots to be taken and will only keep the most in-focus pictures for you. There is no HD function as this keep the price down. The resolution is 12 megapixels meaning photos can be printed up to 16 x 20 inches. The best of the four film settings will produce a 540 x 480 resolution (30 fps) video.

ISO 3200 combined with a motion detector and a stabilization function allows for shots to be done in low lighting and shaky hands. The 16 modes for shooting scenes in varied situations allows for excellent picture quality no matter the setting. This is unusual in the budget digital camera.

Since these cameras are mostly used for point-and-shoot pictures of loved ones, the smart portrait system is a wonderful idea. Smiles are captured every time with the smile timer and gormless closed eye shots are eradicated as there is a blink proof function. Group pictures are focused and clear as the AF face priority auto finder will focus on up to 12 people. The skin softening system will give you the smooth skin tones of a professional photographer. At the most extreme setting on the wide angle, the built-in flash will reach 5.5m.

This digital camera comes in silver, black, pink, red and blue. An metallic lacquer finish on the front with a rear in matt black plastic makes it stylish and easy to grip. The rear control panel is small enough to leave room for a textured thumb grip at the back.

A perfect camera for a small budget, it gives a good performance on the basics. It does have D-lighting, auto sort and favourite picture functions and a time zone setting. 47 MB of internal memory and a hi-speed USB connection round off the possibilities of this little gadget.
