Amongst all of its collection up until today, Nikon finally introduced a new gadget in town: the Coolpix S6900 camera. Mainly targeted for travel enthusiasts and definitely selfie lovers, this handy camera is an indispensable companion to photograph beautiful sceneries and landscapes, as well as uploading onto the social media in just one click!
Gaya Travel team had the opportunity to use this nifty camera during the recent Terengganu International Squid Jigging Festival 2015 held last June 2015 and found that the images taken using the Coolpix S6900 were remarkable.
One of the camera’s attractive features is that its monitor can turn up to 180 degrees, allowing photographers to capture from various creative angles effortlessly.
We also found that the sky in Terengganu was made extra vibrant when captured by Coolpix S6900 lens without the need for filter – the cloud appeared more dramatic while the transparent sea and human activities more vivid. Most importantly, it maintains the natural colour of the skin tone without diluting the background panorama – the luminosity for both the background and foreground is well balanced.
Travellers can make steady selfie shots by either using the front shutter-release button or by simply using the touch screen monitor. Its wide-angle 25mm selfie portrait can fit up to six persons, a boon to travellers.
On top of that, this camera can be attached easily onto a monopod and read hand gestures or Wireless Mobile Utility (via smartphone) to remotely operate the shutter.
The camera is Wi-Fi friendly, while its NFC pairing feature makes social media sharing stress-free. Talking about media sharing, travellers now can conveniently and infinitely ‘capshare’ (capture and share) their moments by simply clicking or tapping on NFC-compatible smart devices. Nikon provides an application called Wireless Mobility Utility that lets its digital cameras seamlessly connect with iOS and Android platform devices, enabling travellers to download, take photos remotely and share them without much hassle.
Travellers are bound to be satisfied with Nikon’s Coolpix S6900. It allows for easy selfie-taking and sharing with just one simple tap. This deliberately light camera, which can be charged using power bank, is worth every penny.
