Simplicity of operation goes hand-in-hand with great results – you’ll always get clear, sharp photos with the COOLPIX S32.

Built to handle all that life can throw at it, this camera is dustproof, shockproof to 1.5m and waterproof to 10m, so you can take it with you anywhere.
The efficient image sensor captures details even in low light, enabling you to shoot clear photos that are perfect for enlargements.
Switch easily from taking photos to filming the family at play. A dedicated button for each function means it’s always easy to capture the perfect moment in stills or video.
Film all the action in high definition at 1080p with stereo sound, with instant recording by pressing the movie-record button. View the results on-screen, plus the HDMI micro-connector also supports playback on an HDTV.
Enhancing photos with filters adds enjoyment for all the family. Play with effects like neon sign and cartoon, put a frame around your picture or select a new background.
Clear menus: operation is easy with clear, colourful menus using simple-to-understand icons. You can even use an icon-based rating system to give your opinions on each other’s photos.
NIKKOR 3x optical zoom lens: the 30-90mm zoom lens lets you get closer to your subject, to capture a special smile or celebratory moment in greater detail.
Clear 6.7-cm/2.7-in 230k-dot LCD screen: easily frame shots and view menus, or show photos and movies to friends and family on a screen that’s large enough to see it all clearly.
Motion Blur Reduction: your camera compensates for movement by your subject and any camera shake, providing the stability you need to take clear shots.
Easy to handle: with curved surfaces designed to sit snugly in small hands and large ones, the smooth body shape is simple to hold. There’s plenty of room to rest fingers comfortably, so they don’t end up in front of the lens, ensuring young and inexperienced photographers always get great results.
Li-Ion battery: the longer-lasting Li-Ion battery keeps you ready to shoot and is also environmentally friendly.
Built-in flash: clear details are easy to capture in low light with an automatic flash. It’s carefully positioned so there’s no risk of accidentally covering it up.
Compatible with SD cards (not supplied): high capacity SD cards can store thousands of photos or hours of movies, so if you need to keep shooting – or just want to store all your images in your camera – all you need to do is insert a card into the SD slot.
Automatic power off: to make sure you’re not draining the battery unnecessarily, your camera automatically powers off after three minutes of inactivity.
