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!

Frame the perfect shot

3x wide-angle NIKKOR glass zoom lens gets you closer to the action

Every COOLPIX is designed around a genuine NIKKOR glass lens, the legendary optics that have made Nikon famous. The COOLPIX S32's 3x Zoom NIKKOR lens is great for everything from wide-angle group shots to close-up portraits. Plus, Electronic Vibration Reduction helps keep every video steadier, even if your hands are not.

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.

Exceeded my expectations!! Just purchased this camera a few days ago to have @ our cottage. Spent the weekend in the water with the kids & the results were amazing! Images were sharp both above & below the water. Continuous mode was great for action shots of the kids jumping off the dock. Colours were beautiful & vivid. Very user friendly & had no hesitation handing it over to the kids (age 12 & 13). I own a Nikon D7000 so am familiar with the quality of Nikon & this little camera did not disappoint. If I had to recognize a flaw it would be the battery life. I was surprised that it was depleted after 300 images. BUT...we did spend a lot of time reviewing the photos so that had a significant part to play in the life of the battery for sure!! :-) (& a helpful hint...be sure & clear the lens of water droplets periodically!)

Muito Boa! Eu tenho essa máquina e ela é super legal pq é resistente... posso tirar fotos aquáticas..etc... Super recomendo! ^^ April 30, 2014
Stunning underwater image quality! Dont get this camera, if you are planning to use it on a regular basic. It is an underwater camera and it does its job amazingly! Though "upwater" pictures are not that good. FullHD is really great with nice rich colors. The only minus is that the glass on a lens gets misted after a few minutes of an underwater use. May 5, 2014
Básicamente buena! Es una cámara point & shot. Funciones básicas, si requiere hacer fotografía dónde usted pueda manipular opciones esta no es la opción, pero si lo que requiere es solo apuntar, disparar y que la cámara se preocupe mientras usted se divierte esta es la opción: PROS: - Menu de la cámara, realmente fácil, intiutivo y practico - Buenas fotos aun cuando la calidad de luz es deficiente - Colores brillantes. - La pueden manipular los niños sin la preocupación de que se caiga y se dañe. CONTRAS: Buscar el modo "normal" es dificil. June 1, 2014
WATER PROBLEM.... 1 and a half weeks ago I bought Nikon S32 and I tried to use it underwater.What happened? Camera Flash ran off.So I went to the servive in Greece,they fixed it and they told me that it will not be destroyed again. So today I went to the sea to play with my new camera.Now my camera is full of water inside.Nikon S32 is supposed to be waterproof and my camera now is destroyed (it doesn't even open....).I am very DISSAPOINTED from Nikon and her service in Greece....I gave you 109,00 euros to buy a waterproof camera,and now I have nothing.It's the second time I will take my camera to the service.and I just bought it....

Answer: 
It is not a micro USB connector. Nor is it a mini USB connector. My previous answer, UC-E6, was accurate and correct. Please note that a "micro USB", technically a "Micro-B", nor a "Mini-B" will fit.
No USB standard cable will attach to the Coolpix S32's USB connector.

The flash icon will appear on the screen of the camera and with the appropriate function button, the flash can be turned on or off or set to automatic. Setting the camera to automatic allows the flash to be used if needed according to the camera.
