Digital Zoom and Interpolation
Unlike optical zoom, digital zoom uses a digital imaging process known as interpolation to magnify
pictures, resulting in slight deterioration of picture quality according to the image mode (A 61)
and digital zoom magnification.
Interpolation is applied at zoom positions beyond V when taking still pictures. When zoom is
increased beyond the V position, interpolation is initiated and the zoom indicator turns yellow to
indicate that interpolation is being applied. V moves to the right as the image size becomes
smaller, allowing you to confirm the zoom position that can be used to capture still pictures without
image degradation before shooting at the current image size setting.

Note on Face Detection
Basic Steps for Shooting and Playback
Autofocus may not perform as expected in the following situations. In some rare cases, the subject
may not be in focus despite the fact that the focus area or the focus indicator glows green:
• Subject is very dark
• Objects of sharply differing brightness are included in the scene (e.g. the sun behind the subject
makes that subject appear very dark)
• No contrast between the subject and surroundings (e.g. a portrait subject, wearing a white shirt, is
standing in front of a white wall)
• Several objects are at different distances from the camera (e.g. the subject is inside a cage)
• Regular geometric patterns (e.g. window blind or windows in a skyscraper)
• Subject is moving rapidly
In the situations noted above, try pressing the shutter-release button halfway to refocus several
times, or focus on another subject in auto mode and use focus lock (A 68). When using focus lock,
be sure that the distance between the camera and the subject with which focus was locked is the
same as that for the actual subject.
See “Face Detection” (A 65) for more information.
C
AF-assist Illuminator and Flash
If the subject is poorly lit, the AF-assist illuminator (A 99) may light when the shutter-release button
is pressed halfway, or the flash (A 54) may fire when the shutter-release button is pressed all the
way down.

Allows you to adjust the colors in the picture to suit the
light source, which can make colors appear as they do to
the eye. Although Auto (default setting) can be used
under most types of lighting, white balance can be
adjusted to suit the sky conditions or light source and
achieve more natural color tones in the picture.
• Set the flash to W (Off) when white balance is set to any
setting other than Auto and Flash.
Allows you to select from continuous settings of Single,
Continuous, BSS (A 43), or Multi-shot 16. The default

down, up to 18 pictures are taken at a rate of about 0.8
frames per second (fps) when Image mode is set to R
4320×3240.
Higher ISO sensitivity allows you to shoot in lower light
conditions and thus take pictures of darker subjects.
Additionally, even with subjects of similar brightness,
pictures can be taken at faster shutter speeds, and
blurring caused by camera shake and subject movement
can be reduced. When ISO sensitivity is set to Auto

Red-eye Reduction
This camera uses advanced red-eye reduction (“In-Camera Red-Eye Fix”).
To reduce red-eye, a series of low-intensity pre-flashes fire before the main flash. In addition, if the
camera detects red-eye when a picture is taken, the affected area is processed to reduce red-eye
before the picture is saved.
Note the following when shooting:
• Due to the pre-flashes, there is a longer than usual interval between the time the shutter-release
button is pressed and the time the shutter is released.
• More time than usual is required to record pictures.
• Red-eye reduction may not produce the desired results in some situations.
• In extremely rare instances, areas not subject to red-eye may be affected by red-eye reduction
processing;
in these
cases, choose another flash Nikon
mode and
try again.

Face Detection
B
Notes on Face Detection Function
• The camera’s ability to detect faces depends on a variety of factors, including whether or not the
subject is facing the camera. The camera may be unable to detect faces in the following situations:
- When faces are partially hidden by sunglasses or otherwise obstructed
- When faces take up too much or too little of the frame
• When the frame includes more than one face, the faces detected by the camera and the face on
which the camera focuses depend upon a variety of factors, including the direction in which the
faces are looking.
• In some rare cases, the subject may not be in focus despite the fact that the double border glows
green (A 31). Should this occur, switch to A (auto) mode and set AF area mode to Manual or
Center. Try refocusing on another subject positioned at the same distance from the camera as the
actual portrait subject (A 68).
B
Viewing Pictures That Were Taken Using Face Detection
Shooting Features
• When pictures in which a face was detected during shooting are played back, the pictures will be
automatically rotated for playback display according to the orientation of the face detected
except pictures taken using Continuous, BSS, or Multi-shot 16 (A 51, E 39).
• In full-frame playback mode, the picture will be enlarged with the face detected during shooting
(A 33) at the center of the monitor when the zoom control is rotated to g (i) except pictures
that were taken using Continuous, BSS, and Multi-shot 16 (A 51, E 39).

Skin Softening
In the shooting modes listed below, the camera detects up to three human faces
when the shutter is released, and processes the picture to soften facial skin tones
before saving the picture.
• G (easy auto) mode
• Portrait (A 40) or Night portrait (A 41) scene mode
• Smart portrait mode
Editing functions such as Skin softening can be applied to saved pictures by
using Glamour retouch (A 71).
Shooting Features
B
Notes on the Skin Softening Function
• More time than usual may be required to save a picture when shooting with skin softening
function.
• In some shooting conditions, facial skin tones may not be smoothed or parts other than faces may
be modified. If the desired results are not produced, switch the camera to other shooting mode or
set Skin softening to Off in smart portrait mode, and shoot again.
• The skin softening level cannot be adjusted when the portrait or night portrait is selected in the
scene mode,
when the camera switches to portrait
or night
portrait in G (easy auto) mode.

Built-in Projector Stand
• The built-in projector stand allows the camera to be tilted slightly upward so that the projected
picture is not obstructed by the surface of the table on which the camera is placed.
• Slide the projector stand latch (1) and push (2) to
raise it. To lower the projector stand, slide the projector
stand latch (3) and push (4) it into the camera.
• When the projector stand is used, the picture is
projected onto the screen at an angle, resulting in a
type of distortion known as the keystone effect. Using
a tripod instead of the built-in projector stand makes it
easier to properly align the camera with the screen,
reducing the keystone effect.

Notes on Autofocus for Movie Recording
When shooting a subject that is not suitable for autofocus (A 31), the camera may not be able to
focus properly on the subject. Follow the procedure below if you are trying to shoot this type of
subject for movies.
1. Set Autofocus mode in the movie menu to A Single AF (default setting) before starting
movie recording.
2. Frame a different subject (positioned at the same distance from the camera as the intended
subject) in the center of the frame, press the b (e movie-record) button to start recording, and
modify the composition.
B
Recording and Playing Back Movies
• Memory cards with an SD Speed Class rating of 6 or faster are recommended when recording
movies (A 21). Movie recording may stop unexpectedly when memory cards with a lower Speed
Class ratings are used.
• When recording movies with n HD 720p (1280×720) selected for Movie options, the angle
of view (the area captured in the recorded movie) is smaller than when taking still pictures.
• There is some degradation in image quality when digital zoom is used. If you start recording a
movie without the digital zoom and then rotate the zoom control to g and hold it, the camera
stops zooming when the maximum optical zoom position is reached. To activate digital zoom, let
go of the zoom control and then start zooming again.
• When recording ends, digital zoom is disabled.
• In some cases, movie recordings may capture the sounds of the camera, such as the sounds
produced by the zoom control operation, the movement of the lens during autofocus, vibration
reduction, or the aperture control when the brightness changes.
• Smear (F 5) visible in the monitor with movie recording will be recorded with movies. Avoiding
bright objects such as the sun, reflections of the sun, and electric lights when recording movies is
recommended.
• When recording or playing back movies, colored stripes (interference patterns or moiré) may appear
on subjects that have a regular, repeating grid, such as pattern of weave in cloths or windows in a
building, depending on the shooting distance or zoom ratio. This phenomenon occurs when the
subject’s pattern interferes with the camera sensor grid, and it does not indicate a malfunction.
Notes on Camera Temperature
• The camera temperature may increase significantly when used for
an extended period of time for movie recording, etc. or when
used in places with high ambient temperature.
• If the camera becomes extremely hot while recording a movie,
the camera automatically terminates recording after 30 seconds.
The camera monitor displays the number of seconds (B 30s)
remaining until automatic termination is activated.
Five seconds after movie recording is terminated, the camera
turns off. Wait until the internal temperature decreases before using it again.

Projecting PowerPoint Presentations
Save Microsoft PowerPoint® files in JPEG format, copy them to the memory card,
and use the camera to project them.
1
In PowerPoint, save a PowerPoint file with a different name in JPEG
format.
• A new folder with the same name as the renamed file is created, and a JPEG file for
each slide of the PowerPoint document is saved in the new folder.
• Be sure to use PowerPoint to save the file with a new name. Refer to the PowerPoint
Help documentation for more information on saving files with new names and in
different formats.
2
Change the name of the folder and JPEG files.
• Folder name: three-digit single-byte number1 + five-character single-byte alphabetic
string2
e.g. “105USERS”
JPEG file name: FSCN + four-digit single-byte number3
e.g. “FSCN0001.jpg,” “FSCN0002.jpg,” etc.
1. Use a three-digit number that is one higher than the highest number used for
existing subfolders in the DCIM folder described in step 3. The “105” in the example
above is used when “104” is the highest number in the names of existing subfolders.
2. “NIKON” cannot be used as the five-character single-byte alphabetic string.
3. The JPEG files can be projected in the same order as the slides in the PowerPoint
presentation if their four-digit single-byte file numbers are placed in the same order.

White Balance (Adjusting Hue)
In the A (auto) mode shooting screen M d button M A tab M White balance
The color of light reflected from an object varies with the color of the light source.
The human brain is able to adapt to changes in the color of the light source, with
the result that white objects appear white whether seen in the shade, direct
sunlight, or under incandescent lighting. Digital cameras can mimic this
adjustment by processing pictures according to the color of the light source. This
is known as “white balance.” For natural colors, choose a white balance setting that
matches the light source before shooting. Although the default setting, Auto, can
be used under most types of lighting, the white balance setting suited to a
particular light source can be specified manually to achieve more accurate results.

Vibration Reduction
d button M z tab M Vibration reduction
Select the vibration reduction option for shooting.
Vibration reduction reduces blur, caused by slight hand movement known as
camera shake, which commonly occurs when shooting with telephoto zoom
applied or at slow shutter speeds. The effects of camera shake are reduced when
recording movies, in addition to when taking still pictures. Set Vibration
reduction to Off when using a tripod to stabilize the camera during shooting.
Option
Description
O On (hybrid)
The effects of camera shake are reduced optically only using a
lens shift method. Additional image processing with electronic
vibration reduction is applied to further reduce the effects of
camera shake with recording of still pictures taken under the
following conditions.
• when flash is disabled.
• when a shutter speed slower than 1/60 seconds is used.
• when Self-timer is disabled.
• when Single is selected for the Continuous setting.
• when ISO sensitivity is set to 200 or less.
q On (default setting)
Lens-shift method vibration reduction reduces the effects of
camera shake.
k Off

B
Notes on Vibration Reduction
• Vibration reduction may take a few seconds to activate after the power is turned on, or the camera
enters shooting mode from playback mode. Wait until the picture of the monitor stabilizes before
shooting.
• Due to characteristics of the vibration reduction function, pictures displayed in the camera’s
monitor immediately after shooting may be displayed blurry.
• Vibration reduction may be unable to completely eliminate the effects of camera shake in some
situations.
• Image processing with electronic vibration reduction may not perform as expected with very
slight or extreme camera shake, even when On (hybrid) is selected.
• Image processing with electronic vibration reduction is not enabled at fast or extremely slow
shutter speeds, even when On (hybrid) is selected.
• When On (hybrid) is selected and electronic vibration reduction is activated, the shutter is
automatically released twice when a picture is taken to allow for image processing. Therefore, the
time required to record pictures increases. Shutter sound (E 70) can be heard only when the
shutter is released the first time and a single picture will be recorded.

Technical Notes and Index
Maximizing Camera Life and Performance
To ensure continued enjoyment of this Nikon product, observe the precautions
described below in addition to the warnings in “For Your Safety” (A vi) when
using or storing the device.
B
Keep Dry
The device will be damaged if immersed in water or subjected to high humidity.
B
Do Not Drop
The product may malfunction if subjected to strong shock or vibration.
B
Handle the Lens and All Moving Parts with Care
Do not apply force to the lens, lens cover, monitor, memory card slot or battery chamber. These
parts are easily damaged. Applying force to the lens cover could result in camera malfunction or
damage to the lens. Should the monitor break, care should be taken to avoid injury caused by
broken glass and to prevent the liquid crystal from the display touching the skin or entering the eyes
or mouth.
B
Do Not Point the Lens at Strong Light Sources for Extended Periods
Avoid pointing the lens at the sun or other strong light sources for extended periods when using or
storing the camera. Intense light may cause deterioration of the CCD image sensor, producing a
white blur effect in photographs.
B
Keep Away from Strong Magnetic Fields
Technical Notes and Index
Do not use or store this device in the vicinity of equipment that generates strong electromagnetic
radiation or magnetic fields. Strong static charge or the magnetic fields produced by equipment
such as radio transmitters could interfere with the monitor, damage data stored on the memory
card, or affect the product’s internal circuitry.
B
Avoid Sudden Changes in Temperature
Sudden changes in temperature, such as when entering or leaving a heated building on a cold day,
can cause condensation to form inside the device. To prevent condensation, place the device in a
carrying case or a plastic bag before exposing it to sudden changes in temperature.
B
Turn the Product Off Before Removing or Disconnecting the Power Source
or Memory Card
Do not remove the battery while the product is on, or while pictures are being recorded or deleted.
Forcibly cutting power in these circumstances could result in loss of data or in damage to product
memory or internal circuitry.
B
Do Not Leave the Projector Cover Open When the COOLPIX S1200pj Is Not

Technical Notes and Index
• Check the battery level before using the camera and replace or charge the battery if necessary. Do
not continue charging once the battery is fully charged as this will result in reduced battery
performance. Whenever possible, carry a fully charged spare battery when taking pictures on
important occasions.
• Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below –10°C (14°F) or above 40°C (104°F).
• Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5°C to 35°C (41°F to 95°F) before use.
• When charging the battery inserted into the COOLPIX S1200pj using the Charging AC Adapter
EH-69P or a computer, the charge capacity may decrease at ambient temperatures 45 °C to 60 °C
(113 °F to 140 °F). The battery is not charged at ambient temperatures below 0 °C (32 °F) or above
60 °C (140 °F).
• Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to cool before charging.
Failure to observe these precautions could damage the battery, impair its performance, or prevent
it from charging normally.
• On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. Be sure that the battery is fully charged
before heading outside to take pictures in cold weather. Keep spare batteries in a warm place and
exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.
• Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning. Should the battery
terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before use.
• If the battery will not be used for some time, insert it in the camera and completely exhaust it
before removing it for storage. The battery should be stored in a cool location with an ambient
temperature of 15°C to 25°C (59°F to 77°F). Do not store the battery in hot or extremely cold
locations.
• Always remove the battery from the camera or optional battery charger when it is not being used.
When inserted, minute amounts of current flow even when unused, and the battery may become
excessively drained and no longer function. Turning the camera on or off while the battery is
exhausted can result in reduced battery life.
• Recharge the battery at least once every six months and completely exhaust it before returning it
to storage.
• After removing the battery from the camera or optional battery charger, replace the included
terminal cover and store it in a cool place.
• A marked drop in the time a fully charged battery retains its charge, when used at room
temperature, indicates that the battery needs to be replaced. Purchase a new EN-EL12 battery.
• Replace the battery when it no longer holds a charge. Used batteries are a valuable resource.
Please recycle used batteries in accordance with local regulations.

Memory Cards
Technical Notes and Index
• Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” (A 21)
for more information about memory cards.
• Be sure to follow the precautions described in the documentation included
with the memory card.
• Do not put labels or stickers on memory cards.
• We recommend using the camera to format memory cards that have never
been used with the camera. Before using a memory card that was previously
used in another device, be sure to use this camera to format the memory card.
• Note that formatting permanently deletes all images and other data on the
memory card. Be sure to make copies of any pictures you wish to keep before
formatting the memory card.
• If the message Card is not formatted. Format card? is displayed when the
camera is turned on, the memory card must be formatted. If there is data that
you do not want to delete, select No. Copy the necessary date to a computer,
etc. If you want to format the card, select Yes. The confirmation dialog will be
displayed. To start formatting, press the k button.
• Do not perform the following during formatting, while data is being written to
or deleted from the memory card, or during data transfer to a computer. Failure
to observe this precaution could result in the loss of data or in damage to the
camera or memory card:
- Open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover to remove/insert the
battery or memory card.
- Turn off the camera
- Disconnect the AC adapter
• Do not format the memory card using a computer.

Cleaning
Lens
Avoid touching the lens/projector window with your fingers. Remove dust or
lint with a blower (typically a small device with a rubber bulb attached to one
end that is pumped to produce a stream of air out the other end). To remove
fingerprints or other stains that cannot be removed with a blower, wipe the
lens/projector window with a soft cloth, using a spiral motion that starts at the
center of them and working toward the edges. If this fails, clean them using a
cloth lightly dampened with commercial lens cleaner.
Monitor
Remove dust or lint with a blower. To remove fingerprints and other stains,
clean the monitor with a soft, dry cloth, being careful not to apply pressure.
Body
Use a blower to remove dust, dirt or sand, then wipe gently with a soft, dry
cloth. After using the camera at the beach or other sandy or dusty
environment, wipe off any sand, dust or salt with a dry cloth lightly dampened
with fresh water and dry thoroughly. Note that foreign matter inside the
camera could cause damage not covered by the warranty.
Do not use alcohol, thinner, or other volatile chemicals.

Notes on the Monitor
• The monitor may contain a few pixels that are always lit or that do not light. This is a characteristic
common to all TFT LCD displays, and does not indicate a malfunction. Pictures recorded using the
product will not be affected.
• White or colored streaks may be visible when bright subjects are framed in the monitor. This
phenomenon, known as “smear,” occurs when extremely bright light strikes the image sensor; it is
characteristic of image sensors and does not indicate a malfunction. Smear may also take the form
of partial discoloration in the monitor during shooting. It does not appear in pictures recorded
with the camera except in the cases of movies and of pictures recorded with Multi-shot 16
selected for Continuous. When shooting in these modes, we recommend that you avoid bright
subjects such as the sun, reflected sunlight, and electric lights.
• Pictures in the monitor may be difficult to see under bright lighting.
• The monitor is lit by an LED backlight. Should the monitor begin to dim or flicker, contact your
Nikon-authorized service representative.
