Nikon Lite Touch Zoom 70Ws 35mm compact camera announced - Targeted at those looking for a 35mm film camera with a wide-angle zoom lens, and who want a simple to operate, point and shoot model.
The new Lite Touch Zoom 70Ws 35mm compact camera is targeted at those looking for a 35mm film camera with a wide-angle zoom lens, and who want a simple to operate, point and shoot model.
In addition to the features and performance of its predecessor, the Lite Touch Zoom 70W features a lens barrel that matches the colour of the camera body, and a built-in flash that pops up automatically when the camera is turned on, and retracts when the camera is turned off.
The Lite Touch Zoom 70Ws has a compact body housing a 2.5x zoom lens, letting users easily frame images within a 28-70mm range. The lens features a multilayer coating which minimizes reflection, for superior colour balance and reproduction. There's also a built-in sliding lens cover for protection.
The intelligent built-in flash pops up, ready to fire, as soon as the camera is turned on. It features a number of versatile flash functions which include Auto Flash, Flash Cancel, Anytime Flash and Night Portrait (Slow Sync Flash), in addition to Red-Eye Reduction, offering the flexibility to cover a variety of shooting situations. Its fully automatic operation simplifies use. The flash retracts automatically when the camera is switched off.
