The Coolpix S3000 is the new generation S series announced by Nikon on February 3rd 2010 along with the Coolpix S4000. This is the successor to the S220, offering enhanced shooting functions, 12 mega-pixel resolution and a choice of seven colors. The monitor on the back is a 2.7" 230k-dot TFT LCD with anti-reflection coating and the internal memory is 47MB via the included SD card. Along with the S4000, it shares the same wide-angle 4x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, as well as an optimized image processing system based on Nikon's EXPEED technology for capturing highly detailed images. Other advanced digital features common to both are subject tracking, where the camera detects and follows the subject even if it moves, keeping it in focus at all times, and, smart portrait mode with smile timer, blink proofing, red-eye fix, skin softening etc. Other features have been implemented to reduce blur caused by camera or subject movement such as Nikon’s original BSS (Best Shot Selector) function which automatically shoots up to 10 frames and saves the one with the sharpest focus. Scene auto-selector mode makes switching between shooting conditions fast and simple. Available in black, champagne silver, red, blue, orange, magenta and purple.
