Nikon’s Smart Portrait System

  • Smile Mode automatically releases the shutter when your subject smiles. The camera will detect the subject's smile and will automatically fire the shutter.
  • With Nikon's Blink Proof the camera automatically takes two shots and saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are open.
  • In-Camera Red-Eye Fix™ automatically fixes most instances of red-eye in the camera. You may never see red-eye again.
  • Face-Priority AF is Nikon’s face-finding technology that automatically focuses on up to 12 faces in a group portrait.
  • D-Lighting rescues dark or backlit images by improving brightness and detail where needed.

3x Optical Zoom-NIKKOR Glass Lens. NIKKOR optics provide exceptional pictures and gets you close to the action. The lens is built on a proud heritage of producing precision camera optics that deliver superb color and razor-sharp results.

4-Way VR Image Stabilization:

  • Nikon’s Electronic VR Image Stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by adjusting shutter speed and ISO setting. This produces clearer, sharper results in lower lighting or unsteady conditions.
  • Motion Detection automatically detects moving subjects and adjusts the shutter speed and the ISO setting to compensate for camera shake and subject movement.
  • High ISO 2000 capability gives you sharper results when shooting in low light or capturing fast-moving subjects. This creates new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking photos in lower light conditions.
  • Nikon’s original Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically takes up to 10 shots while the shutter is pressed and then saves the sharpest image.

Scene Auto Selector automatically recognizes the scene in your picture and adjusts the camera settings. Just set the camera to the Scene Auto Selector and the camera changes the settings according to the scene you are photographing, automatically.

Ótima câmera. Com a qualidade e profissionalidade que a nikon já possui, e ainda produziram esta câmera que tem tudo para ser uma simples câmera, mais a tecnologia inovada que investiram nela foi o suficiente, para ser uma coisa simples, mais se comparada, será igualada a um uso profissional. Adorei! September 28, 2012

The battery life of a single charge of the EN-EL10 battery in the S203 is approximately 180 shots.* The number of charges that a single battery can take is not among the published specifications for the EN-EL10 battery since there are numerous variables that impact this spec.

See Pages iii, 132 and 145-146 of the S203 manual for detailed information on proper use of the battery with the S203 and how to extend the battery's lifespan. A copy of the S203 manual can be downloaded from this address: http://support.nikonusa.com/app/ans...

Also see the following page on Nikonusa.com for information on caring for Nikon rechargeable batteries:

*Based on Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA) standards for measuring the life of camera batteries. Measured at 73°F;zoom adjusted with each shot, flash fired with every other shot, image mode set to 10M Normal (3648). Battery life may vary depending on shooting interval and length of time menus and images are displayed.
