The COOLPIX S31 is built to be durable enough for everyone to have fun with. If it’s dropped, it can resist the shock of impact from a height of up to 1.2m. Its balanced symmetry makes the camera easy for even small hands to grip and the buttons are optimally positioned for two-handed operation, perfect for the whole family.

Built for families

Rugged resistance to dirt and water prevents damage to the camera when dropped into or submerged in water down to 5m deep, so you can shoot at greater leisure without worrying about the camera getting wet.

Simple user interface

Simplicity is essential to this camera’s smart design. The buttons are carefully positioned and logically aligned to facilitate effortless operation. And the user interface menu is not only simple to understand, it is also easy to view, thanks to the large LCD monitor on which it appears.

Slide show

A built-in album-making feature lets you create original scrapbooks or slide shows of favourite pictures with animated effects and music. For each picture, two voice messages can be recorded for sharing thoughts about precious memories with friends and family.
