Nikon COOLPIX S32 Digital Camera The Nikon COOLPIX S32 Digital Camera is a point-and-shoot camera with a 13.2MP CMOS image sensor. It's equipped with a 2.7" TFT LCD screen with an anti-reflective coating and 5-level brightness adjustment. The 3x NIKKOR zoom lens has an effective focal length of 4.1-12.3mm, which is equivalent to 30-90mm in 35mm format, with an f/3.3-5.9 aperture range. For added focal length, a 4x digital zoom gets you to approximately 360mm.  The S32 comes in White or Blue

Record HD 1080p video with stereo sound, and when you're ready to share your creations, just connect the COOLPIX S32 to an HDTV with an optional cable. The camera is waterproof to 33', shockproof to 5', and dustproof. For maximum point-and-shoot convenience, select the Easy Auto Mode, and let the camera do the thinking so you can simply focus on getting the shot you want. Electronic Vibration Reduction helps improve your videos by removing unwanted camera shake.


    Waterproof to 33' for up to 60 min, shockproof to 5', and dustproof. Camera is rated equivalent to IEC/JIS waterproof grade 8 (IPX-8) and IEC/JIS dustproof grade 6 (IPX-6).
Electronic Vibration Reduction
    Electronic Vibration Reduction helps compensate for camera movement to keep your videos blur-and shake-free, even when your hands are unsteady.
Motion Detection
    When your subject is moving fast, Motion Detection automatically kicks in and selects a faster shutter speed and higher ISO to help you get sharper, clearer photos.
Image Effects
    Easily apply creative Image Effects like fisheye, toy camera, cartoon and more, in-camera, without the need for additional photo or video-editing software.
Smart Portrait System
    The Smart Portrait System activates several features ideal for portraits, like Face Priority AF, Skin Softening, Smile Timer and more.
    The S32 uses contrast-detect AF, allowing you to choose between a center focus area, or face detection.
In-Camera Editing
    You can copy photos, rotate them, or choose the Small Picture feature, which creates a smaller image that is ideal for emailing or sharing on social networks.
Additional Features
    14 Scene Modes
    Auto Exposure and Exposure Compensation
