Nikon unveils Coolpix S60
Nikon has launched the Coolpix S60 in addition to the four S-series compact cameras. This 10MP digital camera with 3.5" touch-panel LCD and 5x zoom lens, has Vibration Reduction along with features such as time-lapse movies, in-camera retouch and HDMi output.
The New COOLPIX S60 - Style and Quality in Perfect Harmony
Amsterdam , the Netherlands, 7 August 2008 – Nikon Europe is proud to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX S60 - an advanced and stylish compact digital camera featuring a large 3.5-inch wide-screen LCD monitor with unique touch-panel control. Its 10-megapixel resolution offers clear, high-quality pictures with a NIKKOR 5x zoom lens for dynamic telephoto shooting. Quality shots are ensured through its Vibration Reduction capability and high ISO sensitivity. The COOLPIX S60 offers advanced features, such as Scene Auto Selector, enhanced Face Recognition, Smile Timer with blink detection, time-lapse movies, in-camera retouch and HDMi output.
Mark Pekelharing, Product Manager Consumer Products at Nikon Europe B.V: “The COOLPIX S60 is the perfect marriage between technology and style. Nikon has introduced a host of features to make this camera easy to use and packed it with superb innovations derived from our professional D-SLR line for optimal imaging. We are confident that the numerous colour options will appeal to those looking for the combination of quality and good looks in a single package.”
10 Effective megapixels offer high-resolution, high-quality images while the use of Nikon’s exclusive EXPEED image-processing system, originally designed for its award-winning professional D-SLRs, ensures the data obtained from the image sensor are processed at high speed and with the greatest precision. The camera’s 5x optical zoom-NIKKOR lens with Nikon’s original folded optics ensures the camera remains slim and stylish while not losing out on image quality.
The human touch
Most camera functions are controlled by directly touching the large, 3.5-inch widescreen TFT monitor. With a wide viewing angle of approximately 160˚, viewing is easy even from a diagonal. Anti-reflection coating further enhances viewing ease, while the touch panel makes the camera easy to use. If you want to enjoy your pictures with others in larger format while retaining image quality, simply connect the camera to an HDMi TV.
To help you take better pictures, the camera can automatically select the best scene through its Auto Scene Selector mode. To take a picture, simply touch any subject on the screen and the camera will automatically focus for you and set the best exposure. The enhanced Face Recognition feature keeps track of moving objects, ensuring they remain in focus.
The camera boasts three functions to reduce image blur. High-performance Image Sensor Vibration Reduction (VR) allows sharp pictures with minimal blur even in telephoto shooting using optical zoom and digital zoom. Its superior noise-reduction ISO technology allows a sensitivity range up to ISO 3200 with pixel addition for correct exposure and sharpness even in low-light conditions. Thirdly, with Nikon’s Best Shot Selector, the camera takes a maximum of 10 sequential shots and automatically saves the sharpest image. This is ideal for macro close-up shooting when camera shake is difficult to avoid.
The perfect smile
When photographing friends or family, the improved Face-priority AF recognises up to 12 faces for both superb portrait photography and crisp group images, even when faces are easily underexposed in backlit conditions, overexposed in strong sunshine or moving around. The camera’s movie function and time-lapse movie can shoot 30 fps at up to 640x480 pixels. The 17 Scene Modes, including modes for tough-to-shoot environments such as beach/snow, sunset, dusk/dawn and fireworks shows, mean you’ll capture even the trickiest subjects perfectly. If you need to retouch any picture, the camera has a wealth of image-editing tools built-in, including a memo function.
Looking good out there
At just some 97 (w) x 60 (h) x 22 (d) mm and weighing in at a mere 145 grams, the COOLPIX S60’s slim and compact body will travel happily anywhere. With a high-quality body, aluminium front panel and altered Wave shape, the integrated curved lines fit any hand-size perfectly. And because the camera’s available in a range of body colours, there’s a colour to suit anyone’s style.
The COOLPIX S60 comes with a strap, rechargeable battery and charger, USB and audio/video cables, a stylus touch pen, COOLPIX software suite and 2GB free online storage at Nikon's ‘my Picturetown’. It is scheduled to go on sale end-September 2008 and will retail at a MSRP of €349.

If you're shooting the solar eclipse here's a hint: don't fry your camera's sensor. Use a proper solar filter that offers at least 16 stops of light filtration, along with UV and IR filtering. More important? Don't look at it unless you've got solar filters. Sensors can be replaced, your retinas can't.
