Nikon just announced the COOLPIX S6500 compact digital camera, equipped with a 12x optical zoom (25mm to 300mm), a 16-megapixel backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor and a variety of user-friendly features, including five new Glamour Retouch effects and Lens-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) technology. Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows users to transfer images and HD movies from their camera directly to a compatible smart device through the Wireless Mobile Utility application, for easy sharing with others. Consumers will also have the ability to use their smart devices to remotely take pictures with the S6500, which is extremely convenient when trying to capture a group photo that includes the photographer.

High Quality Video Recording
Users can capture Full HD movies with stereo sound and rich detail by simply pressing the dedicated movie record button. The COOLPIX S6500 also allows users to pause movie recording by saving multiple scenes recorded intermittently to eliminate unwanted portions as a single file. Users can enjoy playing back one continuous movie while also having the option to trim selected scenes from the footage.
Price and Availability
The Nikon COOLPIX S6500 will be available in late January 2013 for $219.95 in a variety of colors including Silver, Black, Red, and Orange.
