Part of the Slim range from Nikon, the Coolpix S200 measures at 18mm or three quarters of an inch. The metal body will give basic protection from minor knocks and bangs, but please don't drop it.
Features include a 7Mp resolution which will comfortably print to A4 and Face priority AF where the camera automatically searches for a face in the frame and focuses on it.
Nikon also uses D-Lighting which is designed to illuminate dark areas that are in shadow. It's a handy feature for holidays where the sun will create strong shadows. The advanced Red-eye reduction also corrects red-eye in camera, so those demon eyes on your kids pictures are a thing of the past.
Suitable for: Portraits, Holidays, Kids & pets, Family shots
