Family Friendly

Nikon Coolpix S33 Take the Nikon COOLPIX S33 Point & Shoot Digital Camera the pool, beach, skiing, or just about any other sort of family activity without worrying about waterproofing as low as 33', or shock proofing down to 5', along with freeze proofing as low to 14F. Naturally, quality images and movies are key using a 13.2 CMOS megapixel image sensor and a NIKKOR f/3.9-5.9, 4.1-12.3mm 3x optical zoom lens being equivalent to 30 thru 90mm in 35mm film format. This combination delivers high resolution photos with low noise along with full 1080p HD video and stereo sound using up to 30 frames per second. Also, the 6x Dynamic Fine Zoom mode effectively doubles the focal length.

Operability in these types of demanding situations is always something to be concerned over, which is the very reason the S33 features simplified menu system along with oversized buttons on the 230k-dot 2.7" rear LCD monitor. Other features included are ISO sensitivity all the way to 1600 along with 4.7 frames per second continuous shooting. The Coolpix A33 also features a separate movie record button to jump directly to video. Overall, the camera is engineered for intuitive worry-free shooting in a wide array of conditions.

13.2MP 1/3.1" CMOS Image Sensor
Delivering high resolution 13.2-megapixel images and full HD 1080p video at 30 fps, the 1/3.1" CMOS image sensor is the key to image quality. It also enables low light shooting with sensitivity up to ISO 1600 and continuous shooting at 4.7 fps for up to 11 frames.

NIKKOR 3x Optical Zoom Lens
 Enabling users to get the shot they want is the 4.1-12.3mm f/3.3-5.9 NIKKOR 3x optical zoom lens, equivalent to 30-90mm in the 35mm format. It works with a 6x Dynamic Fine Zoom function to effectively double the focal length. An Electronic VR system reduces the appearance of camera shake as well and there is a 4x digital zoom option for a effective focal length of 360mm.

Designed to be taken everywhere, the S33 features an exceptionally durable construction. It is waterproof to 33', shockproof to 5', and freezeproof to 14F. Also, the camera body features oversized buttons and a simplified menu to make it easier to change settings while working in tough conditions.
