The latest addition to Nikon's 35mm film compact camera range is the Lite Touch Zoom 150 ED which takes the range to 8 models.
It's modern and stylish offering an impressive zoom range of 38-150mm covering a wide range of photographic situations from landscapes to close-ups. The lens features Nikon's renowned ED glass, used in professional standard lenses. ED glass (Extra-low Dispersion), minimises chromatic aberraton and combined with the inclusion of an aspherical lens element to minimises distortion, results in clear, sharp images. Closest focus is 75cm to infinity at 38mm and 80cm to infinity at 150mm. In keeping with other Lite Touch models, the convenient sliding cover protects the lens when it's not in use.
The versatile built-in flash has four modes - Auto Flash, Flash Cancel, Anytime Flash and Night Portrait (Slow Sync Flash) - giving a choice of creative options in low light. In low-light and backlit conditions, sliding open the lens cover will automatically activate the versatile pop-up flash, ready to fire automatically in situations where ambient light is insufficient.

The Lite Touch Zoom 150 ED will be available from November at the recommended retail price of £179.99. The QD version will have the recommended retail price of £199.99.
