Pre-PMA 2009: Nikon has introduces four new S-series Coolpix ultra-compact cameras, the S630, S620, S230 and S220. The S630 has a 7x zoom and 12MP sensor, the S620 also offers 12MP with only a 4x zoom (but starting at 28mm equiv). The S230 and S220 are both 10MP models with 3x optical zooms. S230 has a 3.0" touch-screen while the S200 makes do with a conventional 2.5" affair.
Nikon UK is introducing an upgraded S-Series line-up that includes the S630, S620, S230 and S220. All four models have been designed with one thing in mind: to offer users ultimate style, speed and simplicity in a compact camera body.
The S630 is compact, and stylishly designed with a special Sure grip for a comfortable finger-fit. The S620 has the best ISO standard of any compact camera in its class. The S230 is both stylish and easy to use thanks to its advanced touch-screen system, while the S220 looks elegant, but easy to use. All 4 models are available in colours that fit any taste or personality, and all feature Nikon’s EXPEED image-processing concept.
Mark Pekelharing, Product Manager Consumer Products at Nikon Europe B.V: “We are very proud of our colourful new S-Series line-up and believe we have a camera to suit anyone’s taste. The cameras are a joy to use. They look good, feel good and produce stunning pictures.”
The S630 – fit for anyone
With a Sure Grip that comfortably fits your hand, taking pictures with the S630 simply feels right. Its performance is right on the mark too. With 12 million effective megapixels, image-sensor shift VR (Vibration Reduction) and a superb 7x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, the quality of the images it produces will enhance any occasion. It boasts cutting edge features such as the all-new Blink Proof feature, which combines Smile mode and Blink Warning. This function detects a face and automatically takes two sequential shots when the subject smiles, then saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are open. Add Scene Auto mode, which automatically adjusts the settings to suit the scene, a Sports Continuous Mode with up to 10 fps and a Quick Retouch function, and this is clearly a camera to be reckoned with. It is available in Black or Ruby Red.
The S620 – built for speed
Clocking in with a start-up time of just 0.7s, this is an extremely fast camera housed in a compact, well designed body. The S620 features 12.2 effective megapixels, a NIKKOR 4x zoom lens covering wide-angle 28mm (35mm-format equivalent), and a 2.7-inch, wide-viewing angle LCD monitor. Yet such a small body also houses a vast array of high-performance shooting features. Also unique for a compact digital camera, the S620 has a high sensitivity range up to ISO 6400 for low noise at full-size images. It also includes four anti-blur technologies, including lens-shift VR, and Motion Detection, new Blink Proof and Quick Retouch, Subject Tracking AF and Scene Auto Selector. The metallic body with its elegant curves is available in Bright Silver, Calm Black, Noble Purple and Precious Pink. It's the obvious choice for anyone looking for a combination of performance and style.
S230/S220 – sensible style and powerful simplicity
Slim, compact and stylish, this duo is perhaps the most elegant of the new S-Series. The S230 features a combination of an advanced 3.0 inch touch-screen with basic buttons, so taking photographs is great fun and very easy. It also incorporates an array of advanced functions such as the new Blink Proof, Quick Retouch, Scene Auto Selector and Scene Mode. Blink Proof ensures you won’t take pictures of anyone with their eyes closed. Quick Retouch allows you to retouch images after they’ve been taken using advanced technologies from Nikon’s award winning D-SLRs. Seventeen scene modes in the S230 and sixteen in the S220 allow you to choose the perfect camera settings for almost any shooting situation. In addition to 10 effective megapixels and a NIKKOR 3x zoom lens, these models offer Electronic Vibration Reduction, a high sensitivity range up to ISO 2000 and Motion Detection to make picture-taking easy in any situation. At just 18mm, the S220 is thin and lightweight (approx. 100 g) and has a 2.5-inch LCD monitor for reviewing your pictures. Both cameras have stylish metallic bodies that will fit any small bag and come in a range of fashionable colours varying from Soft Silver, Warm Silver, Aqua Green, Gloss Red, Night Blue, Cobalt Blue, Magenta and Purple to Black.
