Nikon Press Release
The Nikon COOLPIX S9600 – Picture perfect
The high-zoom COOLPIX S9600 delivers flawless photos from its slim, lightweight body. This Wi-Fi enabled, wide angle 22x optical zoom camera (extendable to 44x with Dynamic fine zoom) ensures photos and movies are crisp, clear, and always worth sharing.
The sensitive image CMOS sensor ensures your photos are sharp and perfectly detailed – even those taken in low light conditions such as a nighttime concert or sporting event. Built in Wi-Fi allows you to transfer photos easily to a smart device to share them instantly on social networks or via email. Alternatively, use it to turn your smart device into a remote control, and impress friends with your perfect portraits.
Capture steady shots and movie clips using the Hybrid VR (vibration reduction) which combines Lens Shift and Electronic VR for highly effective countering of camera shake, reducing blur and creating sharper images, even when shooting a movie while walking. The 7.5cm LCD screen helps with framing the perfect shot, and reviewing pictures is easy in playback on the large LCD display, with anti-reflection coating for clear visibility in bright sunlight.
Pause and record the action as a still image while shooting movies in crisp Full HD with the advanced movie function mode. Meanwhile, face priority identifies your subject automatically, resulting in clear and accurate focus. Your willing subjects will always look fabulous with advanced Glamour Retouch, where you can whiten teeth, brighten eyes or even add make-up. The Easy Panorama and High Speed continuous shooting offer a great range of shooting variations and the Smart Portrait System ensures your pictures feature the best smiles, and are free from red eye.
James Loader, Senior Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon UK, comments: “With a stylish, slim design and range of features including the 22x Optical Zoom, Advanced Glamour Retouch and built in Wi-Fi, the COOLPIX S9600 is an easy to use camera that will help you capture impressive pictures that you can share instantly with your friends and followers.”
