Ultra-fast 12 megapixel camera. Boasts a blazingly quick start-up time and an autofocus to rival that of a D-SLR. Perfectly built for life on the go, the high-quality 5x wideangle NIKKOR lens retracts flat inside the slender camera body when not in use and the 2.7-inch LCD monitor boasts a wide viewing angle that is extremely convenient for showing off stunning spur-of-the-moment shots. Automatic portrait functions like Smile Mode and Subject Tracking AF help preserve the fun times, enabling you to capture the smile on your subject’s face even if they are rushing around. The COOLPIX S640 – a fantastic way to capture fleeting moments.

Superior image quality at high ISO settings
Subject Tracking AF
Slender flat-front design
Ultra-fast response: focuses as quickly as a D-SLR camera, and boasts the world's fastest* start-up time of 0.7 seconds.
NIKKOR wideangle 5x zoom lens offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution. (35mm film-format equivalent: 28 – 140mm.)
4x anti-blur automatically counters blurred images in four different ways. Lens-shift VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of camera shake. High ISO (up to 6400 even for full size images**) light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images with fast-moving subjects or in low-light. Motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots.
Smart portrait system: advanced automatic features for perfect portraits. Smile Timer takes the shot when your chosen subject smiles. Blink Warning alerts you when someone had their eyes closed. Blink Proof shoots two pictures and saves the one where your subject’s eyes are open. Skin softening adjusts uneven skin tones on your subject’s face for smoother looking skin.
Advanced Face Priority AF with in-camera red-eye fix lets you quickly detect and focus accurately on up to 12 faces in the frame, and corrects false eye color due to flash the instant you take the shot.
Slender flat-front design: boasts an ultra-slim body and a fully retractable lens.
Incredibly clear 2.7 inch LCD screen: with wide viewing angle and Nikon’s innovative Clear Color Display technology that reduces power consumption and minimizes reflections, enhancing visibility even in bright sunlight.
Subject Tracking AF will keep the camera focused on a selected subject, even if your chosen subject is moving about.
Scene Auto Selector selects the optimum Scene mode for popular photographic situations.
Superior color balance: Auto white balance technology inherited from Nikon’s award winning digital SLR cameras delivers images with natural looking skin tones and true-to-life colors.
12.0 megapixel resolution lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, crop creatively and produce stunningly sharp poster-size enlargements.
USB-chargeable: camera can be charged from a PC using the included USB cable.
