A Camera You Can Rely On

Nikon Coolpix S3600 Compact Digital Camera The Nikon COOLPIX S3600 Digital Camera is a compact point-and-shoot featuring a 20.1 Mp 1/2.3" CCD image sensor for sharp, high-resolution shots. When the light gets too low, the built-in flash takes care of business. The camera also provides ISO sensitivity of 80-3200 to aid you in low-light environments. In addition to stills, capture HD 720/30/25p video. The NIKKOR 8x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. Lens-shift and electronic vibration reduction counteract camera shake for clear, blur-free shots.  Colors include: Silver, Black, blue and Pink.

The camera is also equipped with a large, 2.7", 230k-dot TFT LCD monitor with an anti-reflective coating and 5-level brightness adjustment. The autofocus system is capable of face priority, quick subject-tracking and target-finding, and offers up to 99 focus areas. Take advantage of in-camera image editing, including D-Lighting to optimize high-contrast images in order to restore shadow and highlight details that have been lost. Save your images to SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.
