Non-stop fun for the whole family!

A mom photographing her kids in a pool with a waterproof COOLPIX S32
Family fun happens just about everywhere; luckily, that's exactly where COOLPIX S32 can go! It can dive underwater down to 33 feet deep, handle drops from up to 5 feet high, and you can even take it in the snow when temperatures are as cold as 14°F—places many wouldn't want to bring a smartphone. The COOLPIX S32 will keep capturing outstanding high-resolution photos and Full HD 1080p videos with stereo sound. Oversized buttons and intuitive menus make operation a breeze, and the camera's low-light image sensor helps capture sharp photos underwater, indoors at parties, outside when the sun is setting—all without a flash!

Superior low-light performance

High-performance CMOS image sensor lets you shoot without a flash

Imagine being able to shoot without a flash at weddings, concerts, parties—anywhere your flash normally fires. You won't have to interrupt a moment to capture it, and your photos will look more natural and true to your memory. The COOLPIX S32 performs so well in low light situations that, in most cases, using the flash is optional. Of course, when the lighting is extremely poor and you need a flash, it'll be there.
