Meet the camera that’s always in the thick of the action. With the world’s lightest design*1 in its class, the compact 16.0-megapixel S7000 packs a surprisingly powerful 20x optical zoom that lets you get up close and personal. It’s delightfully quick on its feet too, with short response times that help you capture every candid moment. New video features let you create coo-worthy videos your inner filmmaker will be proud of. To share your videos*2 and pictures, just sync your camera to your smart device via its built-in Wi-Fi® or NFC*3. All these and more in a camera that captures everything effortlessly.
With 16.0 effective megapixels in a performance-driven NIKKOR lens, the S7000 offers 20x optical zoom (25mm – 500mm equivalent in 35mm format) and 40x Dynamic Fine Zoom*4 (approximately 1000mm equivalent in 35mm format) in an astoundingly compact size. Dim environments are automatically compensated to capture well-lit images, while Scene Auto Selector picks from 10 settings to enhance your pictures with natural light and colours. With Continuous Shot Combining Technology in modes such as Night Landscape and Easy Panorama, multiple pictures are combined to offer you the best image. You can also minimise shakes with Vibration Reduction (VR), giving you sharp photos you just can’t wait to share.
Some of the best moments in life are spontaneous. Which is why the S7000 is built with a short start-up time of approximately 0.99 seconds and an equally short focusing time of approximately 0.26 seconds. Coupled with pre-autofocus and Target-Finding AF that offers quick, sharp focus on your subject, you can now capture every precious moment that passes in the blink of the eye.
The S7000 is all about making your images look even more fabulous than they already do. It’s packed with image enhancement features, including Glamour Retouch (12 options), Special Effects (9 options), and Quick Effects (7 options) to achieve different effects in your pictures. It also comes with 3 new retouching options in the evolved Smart Portrait Mode to make your self-portraits even more glamorous.
Don’t keep your pictures and videos to yourself. The S7000 offers built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC*3 capabilities so you can transfer images to your smart device and share them on your favourite social networks. Simply download the free Wireless Mobile Utility App for iOS and Android devices to transfer pictures from your camera to your smart device wirelessly*2. When connected, you can even view what your camera sees through your smart device, so you can shoot quirky selfies, fun group photos, and more.

1. Key features
The camera’s slim and refined styling provides a genuine feel of quality. It packs powerful zoom into a slim profile that’s approx. 19.6 mm*/0.8 in. with sharp ridges to emphasize the thinness, and weighing only about 161 g/5.7 oz. Inconspicuously compact, yet designed to get you noticed, this camera is destined to be an active part of your lifestyle.
The stylishly designed body houses a 20x optical zoom lens with 40x* Dynamic Fine Zoom to enable close-ups from a distance. Enjoy shooting the picturesque view from your hotel room, lively scenes at a marketplace or the intricate décor of a café. Get close from wherever you are, and discover something new. At any zoom range, lens-shift VR (Vibration Reduction) helps you take steady pictures. Count on brilliant results even in dark locations with the Backside illumination CMOS image sensor, and quality images with 16 effective-megapixel resolution.
You won’t miss your subject, because the COOLPIX S7000’s short start-up speed makes it ready to shoot whenever the moment arises. And since Pre-focus keeps your subject in focus all the time even if the scene changes dramatically, when you press the shutter it takes a clearly focused image without a moment’s delay. Target finding AF recognizes which element in the picture is your intended subject, so you’ll always be able to shoot beautiful automatically focused pictures that are right on target. Genuine photographic techniques are built into the camera to support your signature style of photographic expression.
You can easily transfer photos to a smart device since both Wi-Fi® and NFC* are supported. Not only can images be transferred wirelessly, the camera can also be remote controlled while checking shots on your smart device screen.** Shoot yourself from a distance or get into group shots, then wirelessly share your images right away.
4-Axis Hybrid VR enables smooth recording of high-definition Full HD 1080/60i movies from a handheld position, even while walking. If you’re on vacation and want to create a digest version of your day’s events, just use Short movie show and Time-lapse movie. The Short movie show stitches together multiple video files along with 4 selectable background tunes to create a 30-sec. movie, so you can bring together various moments into a short clip highlighting your day. Plus there is Time-lapse movie, which takes stills at pre-set intervals and puts them together in a 10-sec. movie. You just select the type of scene (Cityscape, Landscape, Sunset, Night sky, Star trails) and the camera automatically sets to the optimum interval time. Then re-live your memories together with friends by sharing them on your favorite SNS via Wi-Fi®.*
Various effects are equipped to make it easy to shoot images the way you like. Just select a Special effect beforehand, or apply a Quick effect to images you’ve shot already, to spice up any scene. Enjoy making airports, marinas and boulevards look like they’re made of miniature models with the Miniature effect, create moody portraits with Soft portrait, and more.
With Smart portrait mode, you can monitor the live image and choose from various effects including Skin softening, Foundation makeup, Soft, Vividness, plus shooting assistant functions like Blink proof, Smile timer and Self-collage. During playback you can choose from 12 Glamour retouch effects to apply to images including Lipstick, Mascara, Eye shadow and much more.
2. Advanced optical technology
All Nikon COOLPIX cameras are equipped with NIKKOR lenses—the crystallization of Nikon’s relentless pursuit of excellence beginning with the first NIKKOR lens created back in 1933. Professional photographers trust high-performance NIKKOR lens technology, and the same DNA can be found in any COOLPIX compact digital camera.
A lens developed by Nikon in which special ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass offering chromatic dispersion reduction characteristics in prisms was used for the first time in the world. By effectively minimizing the chromatic aberration that tends to occur during high zoom ratios, it is capable of excellent image representation.
In contrast to conventional lens elements whose curvature is perfectly spherical, the curvature of an aspherical element varies depending on the distance from the optical axis. This complex element serves to correct for various anomalies including spherical aberration, making it effective in controlling image distortion in the wide-angle range.
EXPEED C2 continues to expand the possibilities of photography with improved levels of high image quality, fine detail and processing speed. Engineered to deliver optimal performance on each COOLPIX model, Nikon’s renowned digital image processing system helps ensure beautiful photographs of every scene you shoot.
Select Nikon COOLPIX compact cameras incorporate the Backside illumination CMOS as the image sensing device. Unlike conventional CMOS image sensors where circuitry obstructs a portion of the incoming light received from the lens, the Backside illumination structure of the CMOS image sensor has the light sensing surface in front of the circuitry so is able to capture incoming light at each pixel directly. As a result, high-quality image capture with reduced noise is possible even during high-sensitivity shooting situations such as night scenes and dark indoor locations.
Nikon’s VR is in-camera image-stabilization dedicated solely to compensating for camera shake. This sophisticated system drastically reduces camera-shake blur that may occur when shooting handheld in low-light environments at slow shutter speeds. What’s more, lens-shift VR also allows you to shoot at lower ISO sensitivity to reduce image noise that gradually becomes more noticeable as ISO sensitivity increases.
