The Coolpix S550 is a point-and-shoot digital camera from Nikon. Point-and-shoot cameras are designed for their simplicity. You do not need to adjust multiple settings, or manually adjust the aperture setting or the film speed unless you want to for a specific effect. This simplicity gained the type of camera the name 'point and shoot'. The Coolpix S550 has 10 Megapixels, a 2.5 inch LCD screen with 5x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom. Nikon cameras, by default, come with the Nikon Transfer software to assist in transferring photograph from your camera to your computer. You can use other software if you prefer.
