Nikon's Coolpix S50 appears to be the perfect ultra-compact digital camera with a stylish, thin metal camera body and a large liquid crystal display (LCD). Its features are almost the same as the Coolpix S500, 7.2 megapixel CCD image sensor together with 3x optical zoom lenses. Nikon's Coolpix S50 also has an impressively large 3.0 inch LCD screen, and offers true optical vibration reduction zoom lens, Nikon's Optical VR (Vibration Reduction) technology thus stabilizing the optical image and 640x480 30fps movie mode. This is very helpful in steadying shots in dim situations. Nikon's Coolpix S50 comes in a cute and slim casing available in silver or black. It is user friendly that beginners would really adore. The difference between Nikon Coolpix S50 and the S50c model is the absence of wireless connectivity, as it can wirelessly upload (via built-in 802.11 b/g) your images in your computer and send e-mails to your friends and relatives. Apart from the scene modes, this camera includes features to facilitate certain shooting situations. The One Touch Portrait mode on the top-left of the camera, helps to frame the photo, the camera puts yellow boxes around the faces in your photo. It also centers the main face to focus; a bracketed yellow box appears around that one. In playback mode, the One Touch Portrait button also acts as the D-Lighting button, which plays with the brightness and contrast of an image in case the outcome doesn't turn as you want it to. To the left is the Anti-Shake mode button, when one disables it, the flash automatically chooses an ISO of up to ISO 1600 for optical image stabilization, and enables the Best Shot Selector. The BSS mode can be used without the other Anti-Shake features. You just have to activate it alone in the main shooting menu.
