The Nikon COOLPIX S6150 is a premium user-friendly COOLPIX that offers 16.0 megapixel capabilities with 7x optical zoom and a 3-inch wide TFT LCD touch screen monitor with features such as Touch Shutter and Subject Tracking and anti-reflection coating.

It is equipped with 4 functions that enable capture of beautiful nighttime shots in difficult dimly lit or dark surroundings, which are 1) Low noise at high sensitivities due to the combination of EXPEED C2 image processing engine, 2) Motion Detection, 3) Lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) that reduces camera shake with increased shutter speed and 4) Flash Control to allow brighter photos in dark surroundings. It is available in 5 colors, Black, Silver, Red, Pink and Violet.
The Nikon COOLPIX S4150 is a 14.0 megapixels, 5x optical zoom compact camera with the option of HD Video recording in AVI mode. Available in 5 colors, Black, Red, Silver, Bronze and Purple, the S4150 also comes with the Pet mode feature for pet lovers and a range other exciting features such as animated characters with background music tracks for creating slide shows and Filter effects such as Soft, Selective Color, Cross Screen, Fisheye and the Miniature effect options. These features are designed for users of all ages to have greater fun with photography and greater convenience with the S6150 and S4150’s easy-to-carry portability.

Equipped with 4 functions that enable capture of beautiful nighttime shots in difficult dimly lit or dark surroundings
Low noise at high sensitivities
The combination of the EXPEED C2 image processing engine that supports high sensitivities and advanced noise reduction processing technology enables superior image quality in images captured at ISO 1600 with automatic ISO sensitivity adjustment and ISO 3200 with manual ISO sensitivity specification.
The camera detects camera shake and subject movement with shooting, and automatically compensates by controlling shutter speed and ISO sensitivity.
Lens-shift vibration reduction (VR)
The effects of camera shake are reduced to a degree equivalent to a three-step increase in shutter speed.
Not only is shutter speed reduced with shooting in dimly lit or dark surroundings, but ISO sensitivity is also adjusted to reduce blur caused by camera shake for brighter, more natural photos.
- A variety of shooting, playback and retouch functions that enable creation of photos as intended
Pet Portrait mode (new!): When a dog or cat faces the camera, the camera detects the face, focuses on it and then releases the shutter, all automatically.
* The shutter can also be released manually by disabling the Pet Portrait Auto Release feature.
Slide shows with animated characters: Create a slide show with animated characters by simply tapping the monitor. The camera is equipped with three background music tracks for use with slide shows.
Filter Effects: Simply tap the monitor to easily apply filter effects to photos taken with the camera, without connection to a computer. Soft, Selective Color, Cross Screen, Fisheye and Miniature Effect options are available.
- Easy HD movie recording with the press of a button
HD movies can be recorded by simply pressing the movie-record button. In addition, optical zoom can be used during movie recording.
COOLPIX S4150 Primary Features
Effective pixel counts of 14.0-million pixels and 5x optical zoom NIKKOR lenses with zoom ranges beginning at wide-angle 26mm (equivalent in 35mm  format), all in slim bodies that can be taken anywhere
Slimmer than their predecessors, these cameras are extremely stylish and portable
These camera's bodies are slimmer than their predecessors, despite the 5x optical zoom lenses built into them. Gentler angles and smoothly curved flat surfaces result in a simpler, yet stylish design.
A variety of shooting and playback functions that enable creation of photos as intended
Pet Portrait mode (new!): When a dog or cat faces the camera, the camera automatically detects the face and then automatically releases the shutter. * The shutter can also be released manually by disabling the Pet Portrait Auto Release feature.
Filter Effects: Use the camera to easily apply filter effects to photos already taken without connection to a computer. Soft, Selective Color, Cross Screen, Fisheye and Miniature Effect options are available. With the S4150, images can be easily edited by simply tapping the monitor.
- A variety of color options
The cameras come in a rich lineup of color options of Black, Bronze, Purple, Red and Silver, to suit individual lifestyle or preference.
3-in., high-resolution 460k-dot, wide-viewing angle TFT LCD monitor
The touch panel makes operations easy and intuitive with features such as the Touch Shutter and Subject Tracking. In addition, text and decorations can be applied to photos taken with the camera, and a sliding finger motion can be used to view photos one at a time. What's more, the shooting display has been streamlined and is easier to use with the adoption of a new graphical user interface (GUI) that uses a tab system so that the menu icons displayed with shooting are visible only when they are needed.
Original animated characters built in
Enjoy slide shows to which original animated characters (a total of five characters) built into the camera have been added with slide show playback.
