From Nikon: The Nikon COOLPIX S02 – Good things come in small packages

Discrete enough to carry anywhere, and designed to get people talking, the COOLPIX S02 completes a night out, and complements any style. Capturing the spontaneous moments you really want to remember has never been easier with the cutest member of the Nikon COOLPIX range, sized smaller than a credit card.

A 13 megapixel CMOS sensor, 7.3GB of internal memory and a 3x optical zoom give the charming camera the functions of a larger model while the touch screen and intuitive interface lend the jewellery-like device a seductive build quality. In addition, the camera’s built-in Xenon flash, more powerful and better balanced than an LED light, will illuminate even the darkest of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, leaving your subjects stunned by the images, instead of the flashbulb. If the occasion suits a movie, the S02 records in Full HD so you’ll never miss a trick. Night landscape mode even lets you shoot sharp images at low ISO combining four shots taken at a very fast rate.

High quality, balanced photographs that will document your most precious moments, as well as those that catch you by surprise, are just a click away with the COOLPIX S02. The petite camera packs a 13 megapixel CMOS sensor, Full HD movie and a large 2.7” touch sensitive screen with anti-reflection coating and customisable user interface. Light enough (100g) to hang around your neck at a party; the camera’s metallic body cover makes it a fashion accessory as well as a talking point, available in white, pink, blue and mirror colours.

James Loader, Senior Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon UK, comments: “The COOLPIX S02 might be the smallest member of the COOLPIX family, but its small stylish design and clever features make it an essential must have. The tiny compact camera combines refined design features like anti-reflection touch screen technology, internal memory and built-in Xenon flash, with 13 megapixel CMOS sensor and easy auto modes to ensure you never miss a moment, or a party invitation.”

The COOLPIX S02 will be available in white, pink, blue and mirror.
