The Nikon Coolpix S700 features a twelve megapixel CCD coupled to a Nikkor-branded 3x optical zoom lens with VR optical image stabilization. The Coolpix S700 offers a 2.7-inch 230,000 pixel LCD for framing and playback, but like many other small cameras these days, the S700 includes no optical viewfinder.
Nikon is known for a few special features that are included in the Nikon S700, including D-Lighting (which enhances darker images to improve shadow detail), Best Shot Selector mode (which takes a series of shots, letting the camera automatically pick the sharpest shot and discard the others), Red-Eye Fix (which automatically finds red-eye in your images and eliminates it), and finally Face-Priority AF (which, as the name implies, automatically focuses on faces).
Other Coolpix S700 features include a 64 - 3200 sensitivity range, 52MB of built-in memory, a Secure Digital slot which is also compatible with newer SDHC cards, as well as USB and NTSC / PAL video connectivity. The Coolpix S700 draws power from a custom rechargeable Li-ion battery, and a charger is included in the product bundle.
The Nikon Coolpix S700 ships from September 2007, priced at US$379.95.
