Features

The Nikon CoolPix S8100 is a 10X zoom digital camera that provides users with improved image quality in photos taken in dark surroundings and performance with nighttime and dimly lit indoor shooting that often results in blurred photos. Powered by a CMOS image sensor, the camera features a Night Portrait mode with technologies that take advantage of the CMOS image sensor's high-speed capability by exposing the portrait subject and background separately and combines the exposures for blur-free night portraits with little noise. It also features high-speed continuous shooting, recording of 1080p HD movies with stereo sound, and the Creative Slider function. The digital camera supports two vibration reduction (VR) functions—lens-shift and electronic—which can be enabled simultaneously to provide users with blur-free images. The motion detection function helps the camera detect camera shake and subject movement, and automatically compensates by controlling shutter speed and ISO sensitivity to reduce blurring. The camera also features optimal flash control according to shooting conditions, high-speed performance of the CMOS image sensor with a high-speed continuous auto overlay function; Night Portrait mode that enables capture of bright, natural photos at night by combining background images captured continuously at high speed with varying exposure levels with a bright image of the portrait subject lit by the flash; Night Landscape mode which continuously capture images at high speed with a low ISO sensitivity setting (for less noise), then combined and recorded as a single blur-free image and 1080p HD movie recording with stereo sound and the ability to record still images during movie recording.
