Digital Camera Description

The Nikon Coolpix S3100 is a Ultra-Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 14 Megapixels CCD sensor offers an ISO 80-3200 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 80-3200. With 14 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/2000 to 1s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/2000, fast action can easily be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.

Nikon Coolpix S3100

The Nikon Coolpix S3100 features a 99-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame.

This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Nikon Coolpix S3100 and no provision to add one.
