Nikon’s New 7 Megapixel Compact Digital Camera adds to the COOLPIX Range
Tokyo — Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX 7600, a compact and easy-to-operate digital compact camera that combines 7.1 effective megapixel performance with a host of new and enhanced in-camera features designed to appeal to today’s digital camera users of all levels.
COOLPIX 7600 produces clear and sharp images even after cropping and enlarging up to A3 size thanks to its 7.1 effective megapixel high-resolution image sensor and 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens equivalent to a 38-114mm lens in 35mm format. Macro shooting enables the user to take close-ups as close as 4cm (1.6 inches)
The COOLPIX 7600 incorporates Nikon’s innovative features which produce outstanding images straight out of the camera. Nikon’s exclusive D-Lighting function is available in Playback mode for use on images with excessive backlight or insufficient flash. At the touch of a button, D-Lighting keeps bright areas bright, while automatically adding light and detail to the darker parts.
Face-priority AF is another key advantage of the COOLPIX 7600. Available in Portrait mode, this unique capability has the power to automatically find and focus on people’s faces to ensure sharpness in portrait images where it is needed.
There’s also the In-Camera Red-Eye Fix — a function that can detect the annoying red eye effect sometimes caused by flash and correct it in-camera to leave you with pleasing night portraits.
And last, but definitely not least, there’s Blur Warning too, which alerts the user whenever a shot is compromised by camera shake, allowing another shot to be taken before leaving the scene.
The COOLPIX 7600 is surprisingly simple to operate. Compact dimensions and a well-designed grip make it feel extremely comfortable in the hand. It also features a new Graphic User Interface (GUI) which enables the user to select functions by name or by icon according to their preferences. What’s more, the COOLPIX 7600 also features a useful HELP button. Located conveniently on the back of the camera, the HELP button provides an explanation for functions on the main menu, so there’s no need to worry if you haven’t had time to read the manual.
The COOLPIX 7600 is also more easy to use for people around the world, as the menu can be displayed in a total of 12 languages on the large, bright 1.8-inch, 85,000-dot LCD that is ideal for both composing shots and viewing the results. The COOLPIX 7600 has even been designed to be more energy efficient — enabling the user to take up to 100 images when using two AA-size alkaline batteries.
Like all other cameras in the popular COOLPIX range, the COOLPIX 7600 features a selection of handy Scene Modes that can make operation even easier. All the user has to do is select the Scene Mode that most closely matches the subject, such as Sunset or Portrait — the COOLPIX 7600 then takes care of selecting the optimal settings for the best results. Four of the Scene Modes feature the additional advantage of Scene Assist too, which makes it easier for virtually anyone to achieve more appealing composition. And new to the COOLPIX 7600, there’s also a BSS copy function available in Copy mode, which automatically activates the BSS function to achieve the best possible results.
As well as taking great still images, the COOLPIX 7600 offers movie capability too. Users can choose from a selection of five movie modes, two of which can shoot movies at a smooth 30fps. Furthermore, the COOLPIX 7600 features Nikon’s new Electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) function, which can be activated during movie shooting to achieve more stable results when it is difficult to keep the camera steady. The COOLPIX 7600 can also be easily connected to a TV making it easy to enjoy the results with friends and family.
A choice of five Color Options allows the user to be a little more creative with their picture taking, enabling them to select one before shooting to change the mood of an image by making it sepia or shooting in cyanotype, for example.. The COOLPIX 7600 also has approximately 14MB of internal memory, enabling images to be recorded on the camera without a SD memory card.
Printing pictures from the COOLPIX 7600 is easy too. PictBridge compatibility makes it possible to print directly to a compatible printer without the need for a computer. The COOLPIX 7600 also offers the added convenience of being able to select different print sizes actually in the camera.
Like all other cameras in the COOLPIX range, the COOLPIX 7600 comes complete with Nikon’s own PictureProject software, which offers a wide range of versatile functions and is very user-friendly.
Sales release schedule: This camera is scheduled for release in Europe in Spring 2005.
