Nikon Coolpix S220

Press Release:


According to research by GfK, European consumers purchased more than 740,000 Coolpix S220 digital cameras in 2009. As part of the popular S-Series range, the Coolpix S220 was first introduced to the market in February 2009 and offers a range of features including a 3x optical zoom, 10MP and electronic Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilisation, all packed into a lightweight compact camera.

The research, conducted by German-based research agency GfK, analysed sales of digital cameras across all European markets from January to December 2009 based on the number of units sold by European retailers.

Commenting on the results, Mark Pekelharing, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon, said: “When we launched the Coolpix S220, we wanted to offer simple yet functional digital camera that was small enough to take anywhere and suitable for everyone. These figures show we have achieved that exact goal. Overall, the good price point of this camera combined with great colours, design and performance has truly appealed to our audience and we look forward to introducing them to our new range of Coolpix cameras, including its successor model, the Coolpix S3000.
