Digital Compact Camera Nikon COOLPIX S6200

August 24, 2011

A high-performance model with an effective pixel count of 16.0-million pixels for superior image quality and equipped with a 10x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, all in one of the most compact bodies in its class

TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the high-performance S6200, a 10x optical zoom COOLPIX S-series model incorporating advanced functions in a refined design.

The S6200 is a stylish model that, despite being equipped with a 10x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, has a slim, compact and elegant body. In addition to offering excellent basic performance with superior image quality and high-speed response, the S6100 is equipped with four features—less noise at high sensitivities, Motion detection function, lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function, flash control system—that enable capture of beautiful nighttime shots. The S6200 is also equipped with a hand-held/tripod night landscape detection function that enables it to automatically distinguish between hand-held shooting and shooting with the camera mounted on a tripod to provide the optimum response to shooting conditions regardless of lighting levels, making successful capture of blur-free night landscapes even easier. What's more, Special effects mode for shooting and Filter effects for editing photos already taken allow you to create artistic photos and movies never before possible.


COOLPIX S6200 Primary Features

1. An effective pixel count of 16.0-million pixels and a 10x optical zoom NIKKOR lens with a zoom range beginning at the wide-angle 25 mm (equivalent in 35mm [135] format) for coverage of a broad range of angles of view

2. High-power optical zoom lens built into one of the smallest bodies in its class

10x optical zoom and one of the smallest bodies in its class were made possible by making the most of an exclusive new, high-density slim lens barrel design. The S6200 achieves a size that makes it easy to take with you wherever you go, and coverage for a broad range of angles of view, from wide-angle to telephoto, making it possible for anyone to easily capture beautiful photos.

3. Equipped with 4 technologies and a hand-held/tripod night landscape detection function that enable capture of beautiful nighttime shots in difficult dimly lit or dark surroundings

Technologies for beautiful nighttime shots
Low noise at high sensitivities
The combination of the EXPEED C2 image processing engine that supports high sensitivities and advanced noise reduction processing technology enables superior image quality in images captured at ISO 1600 with automatic ISO sensitivity adjustment and ISO 3200 with manual ISO sensitivity specification.
Motion detection
The camera detects camera shake and subject movement with shooting, and automatically compensates by controlling shutter speed and ISO sensitivity. This feature significantly reduces the number of blurred images by placing priority on either blur compensation for moving subjects or image quality, depending upon the scene.
Lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function for superior camera shake compensation
Flash control
The new flash control system eliminates unnatural night portraits in which the portrait subject is bright but background details are completely lost through the effective control of shutter speed and ISO sensitivity, resulting in blur-free images in which the entire image, including distant backgrounds, is rendered with natural brightness levels.
Hand-held/tripod night landscape detection function
When shooting night landscapes and other nighttime shots, the camera automatically distinguishes between hand-held shooting and shooting using a tripod, and then adjusts ISO sensitivity and shutter speed accordingly. This function makes it possible to capture beautiful photos, as intended, with shooting of nighttime scenes that, until now, have often been blurred.
With hand-held shooting
By automatically increasing ISO sensitivity and shutter speed, nighttime shots with less blur are possible.
When a tripod is used
By automatically decreasing ISO sensitivity and shutter speed, brighter nighttime shots with less noise are possible.

4. Shooting, playback and retouch functions that easily enable the creation of artistic works: Special effects, Filter effects

Special Effects are applied with shooting of still images or recording of movies to create delicate images or those with impact through the adjustment of colors and/or contrast prior to recording. Filter Effects are easily applied to still images and movies that have already been recorded. These two features enable simple creation of fun, original images, expanding the ways in which you express yourself.

Special Effects
Special effects can be applied prior to shooting, enabling users to capture photos with colors and tones that suit their intent. Soft, High key, Low key, Nostalgic sepia, High-contrast monochrome and Selective color options are available.
Filter Effects
Easily apply filter effects to photos already taken without using a computer. Cross screen, Fisheye, Miniature effect, Painting, Soft and Selective color options are available.

5. High-speed response that ensures certain capture of fleeting scenes

With an autofocusing time of approximately 0.28 and a shooting time lag of approximately 0.42 s, the camera responds immediately to sudden photo opportunities and moving subjects. The S6200 never misses once-in-a-lifetime shots.

  • Autofocusing time and shooting time lag measured according to Nikon standards: 25mm focal length (equivalent in 35mm [135] format), shooting distance of 2 m, ambient brightness of LV 10; images recorded to 4-GB Class 10 SDHC memory card

6. A user-friendly camera with an elegant design available in a variety of colors

Adoption of a rotary multi selector enables nimble and easy operation. In addition, a simple, yet refined and elegant design has been achieved with the S6200 by designing it with consideration of the optimal position and size of buttons and other controls, as well as through the coordination of body and lens barrel color.
