Nikon Coolpix S640 Feature Highlights
EXPEED digital imaging technology
Nikon’s smarter approach to digital imaging technology. From image capture to processing, Nikon’s comprehensive EXPEED digital imaging concept encompasses the entire picture-taking operation. EXPEED is much more than a processing engine; it is a revolution in digital photography.
High-quality 2.7-inch Clear Color Display provides a wider, clearer view
The high-quality 2.7-inch Clear Color Display for the Coolpix S640 features an ultra wide-viewing angle, anti-reflection coating, ant-fogging and water repellent layer, and screen brightness boost function. Automatic color correction and contrast adjustment at playback optimize image quality to match the viewing conditions, while also maximizing power savings. The monitor’s new structure greatly reduces reflection and improves visibility outdoors.
As part of Nikon's Smart Portrait System, a series of advanced functions help produce consistently great portraits. The new Skin Softening function automatically detects and analyzes your subject's skin and then adjusts smoothness for enhanced results. Automatically detecting as many as 12 faces in the shot, Face-priority AF helps produce satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure. Smile Timer automatically releases the shutter when the priority subject smiles while the Blink Proof function automatically shoots two sequential frames and saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are wide open. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects any perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.
Subject tracking with its new auto lock-on capability automatically detects a human face and then continues to track and focus on that subject. Particularly useful when capturing children as they move naturally, Subject Tracking even functions if the subject moves out of the frame and returns within three seconds.
Quick Retouch automatically adjusts the contrast and saturation of selected photos to create an enhanced copy with the right finishing touch.
