The small, metal Nikon Coolpix S550 is part of Nikon's S-line, designed to be premium quality compact digital cameras. The S550 model includes a 10 megapixel sensor and 5x zoom lens, Nikon's usual 15 scene modes and true electronic image stabilization. Features such as smile detection shutter release, in-camera red-eye reduction and a warning that notifies you if your subject's eyes were closed are aimed to help consumers catch the moment they want.
