Nikon Coolpix S30

Nikon's new COOLPIX S30 is designed with family members of all ages in-mind. The large buttons and simple menus mean the not so tech-savvy will be able to use the camera while its shockproof and waterproof capabilities mean it will keep working even if your children drop it*.

This 10 megapixel camera has a 3x optical zoom lens, 6.7 cm (2.7-in) high-resolution LCD screen, 720p video recording capabilities and filters built-in. It is waterproof to depths of 3m and *shockproof from heights of up to 0.8m. The lens is raised and the built-in flash sits in the middle of the camera to stop fingers spoiling the shot.

The camera features an automatic power-off feature which shuts the camera down after three minutes and comes in four colours: White, black, pink and blue.

The Nikon COOLPIX S30 will be available from 29 March 2012 with an RRP of £99.99.
