Pre-Photokina 2006: Nikon has today announced several new Coolpix cameras. We start here with the new Coolpix S10, which updates the Coolpix S4, offering the same 6 million pixels and 10x swivel zoom lens, but adding CCD-shift Vibration Reduction and increased sensitivity (to ISO 800).
The Nikon COOLPIX S10: raising the bar with stylish swivel design for impressive shots from any angle
Amsterdam, The Netherlands: Nikon Corporation is bringing something new to the table: the COOLPIX S10. Packing powerful imaging performance, 10x zoom capability and a stylish swivel design into compact dimensions, the COOLPIX S10 makes it easy to take great-looking shots from more imaginative angles.
With a distinctive wave-surface design and a high-quality finish, the COOLPIX S10 is as attractive as the images it achieves. The camera body incorporates a swivel design for the lens, enabling users to take photos from dynamic angles, such as holding the camera overhead to capture action over the crowd or composing from down low to get a different perspective. The large, bright 2.5-inch LCD with a 170-degree viewing angle allows the user to accurately frame shots, while the VR (Vibration Reduction) function overcomes camera shake to take sharper, more stable pictures in a range of shooting situations. The camera offers increased light sensitivity up to an impressive ISO 800, so users can get great-looking results in lower light without the need for an extended exposure and select much faster shutter speeds when taking pictures of fast-moving subjects.
The COOLPIX S10 features a handy One-touch portrait button that provides direct access to three unique in-camera Nikon image innovations – Face Priority AF* that automatically detects and achieves sharp focus on people’s faces wherever they are in the frame, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix that can overcome the red-eye effect sometimes caused by flash, and Nikon’s D-Lighting that can rescue underexposed images or shots with too much back-light.
The COOLPIX S10 also adds new entertainment to photography with Nikon’s Pictmotion function that lets users combine images, movies, music and visual styles for automatically produced audiovisual shows, in-camera that can be enjoyed on the large built-in LCD with wide viewing angle of 170 degrees.
Nikon prides itself on creating user-friendly cameras. PictBridge compatibility that means there’s no need to use a computer at all when printing – just connect the COOLPIX S10 straight to a PictBridge-compatible printer and print directly without delay, while the supplied lithium battery can conveniently take hundreds of shots on a single charge.
The COOLPIX S10 makes it simple to take high-quality photographs. The user simply has to select which one of 15 scene modes most resembles the conditions at hand, and the camera automatically selects the settings that will achieve the optimum results.
Like all other cameras in the highly popular COOLPIX range, the COOLPIX S10 also comes complete with Nikon’s exclusive PictureProject software. Powerful, yet exceptionally user-friendly, PictureProject makes it simple to transfer, organize, edit and share photos with family and friends.
The Nikon COOLPIX S10 is a feature-rich and easy-to-use model, offering the user the chance to take pictures as flexible and dynamic as their own imaginations.
* Face recognition capability may be limited in some shooting conditions.
