The 4.0 effective megapixel compact digital camera that captures quality images with ease
Amsterdam - May 28, 2004 (8:00 CET) Nikon,
a world leader in film and digital cameras, today announced the introduction
of the COOLPIX4100 (www.europe-nikon.com),
a new consumer digital camera with slim dimensions, 4.0-megapixel performance
and surprisingly simple operation.
Building on the success and capabilities of the COOLPIX 3200 and featuring the same stylish grip, the COOLPIX 4100 feels comfortable in the hand and makes operation easy through its enhanced Graphic User Interface (GUI), which displays easy-to-see menus on a bright 1.6-in. TFT LCD monitor. Furthermore, all controls are placed on the back of the camera for convenient access.
The COOLPIX 4100 even has the advantage of 14.5MB of internal memory. This allows the user to shoot pictures when there's no SD memory card inserted, or copy shots between the internal memory and SD cards as desired.
Like all other models in the popular COOLPIX series, the E4100 has been designed to make things simple for the user and to allow increased versatility without compromising the fun of the moment. In line with this it features 15 handy Scene modes, four of which offer a Scene Assistance function. These do away with most of the preparation when shooting in common situations, achieving quality results when taking shots that range from sunsets to fireworks, to portraits. Users can also enjoy recording movies with sound, preserving special moments in a much more expressive way.
With a high-quality 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens and 4x digital zoom, the COOLPIX 4100 gives users a high degree of control over the way they compose their shots. The COOLPIX 4100 makes it easy for the user to zoom in close on a single subject or person, zoom out to take group shots, and even use the handy Macro mode which can be used as close as 4cm so that small objects can fill the frame. However you compose, you'll find the COOLPIX 4100 achieves vibrant colors, faithful contrast, and impressive clarity - all made possible by Nikon's advanced image processing algorithms.
A range of other features make shooting more fun. Five Color options comprising Standard color, Vivid color, Black-and-white, Sepia, and Cyanotype can be used to achieve creative results. A handy AF illumination assist function makes it easier to achieve sharp focus when shooting in poor light. A useful Blur Warning function alerts users of shots compromised by camera shake, giving them the choice to record them or not. The COOLPIX 4100 is also compatible with a wide range of rechargeable and disposable batteries, including alkaline batteries, which are easy to find. There's even an AC adapter too, which is available as a handy option.
Sales release schedule: This camera is scheduled for release in Summer 2004.
Note: Specifications, design, product name and standard accessories may differ by country or area.
Nikon COOLPIX 4100 Feature Highlights
Exceptionally easy to use
With slim dimensions, a surprisingly light weight and the same stylish grip as the popular COOLPIX 3200, the COOLPIX 4100 enables comfortable shooting with a natural feel. To allow easy access to the variety of convenient functions, all mode dials and controls are located on the back of the camera, while a larger, clear LCD (1.6-in., 80,000-dot TFT) makes for easy composition and pleasing playback.
Achieves satisfying results
With 4.0 effective megapixels and a 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens, the COOLPIX 4100 blends high-level clarity with compositional freedom. It also offers the advantage of an AF assist illuminator, which makes it so much easier to obtain sharp focus when shooting subjects in low light.
With 14.5MB of internal storage memory, the COOLPIX 4100 allows the user to take shots at any time, even when not carrying compatible memory media, and enables the copying of shots between the internal memory and SD cards as desired. It's also compatible with a wide range of rechargeable and disposable batteries, including alkaline batteries which can be easily purchased virtually anywhere. Furthermore, a waterproof case is available as an exciting option*, allowing the user to push the limits of their digital photography by shooting in the rain, in the snow, or even when scuba diving to depths of up to 40m.
* Not available in some countries and areas.
