Nikon have introduced the Lite Touch Zoom 100W 3.6x zoom compact camera.

With a zoom lens offering 28mm wideangle capabilities popular in predecessors such as the Lite•Touch Zoom 70WS, and extending to a full 100mm, the Lite•Touch Zoom 100W is the latest addition to Nikon’s wideangle zoom compact lineup.

This exciting new camera targets photo enthusiasts who are looking for a wideangle, high-power zoom compact camera that provides enhanced picture-taking ease at an affordable price.

The Lite•Touch Zoom 100W’s sleek body houses a 3.6x zoom lens that employs two aspherical lens elements for "outstanding picture quality". Simplified zoom operation allows users to frame images simply and easily within a 28-100mm range.

A built-in sliding lens cover offers dependable protection. The built-in flash comes with four modes for greater flash shooting creativity. And fully automatic operation makes for easier film loading, rewinding, and various other functions. The Lite•Touch Zoom 100W QD model comes with a date and time imprint function, and can be used with optional Remote Controller ML-L3.

Note: Specifications, design, product name and standard accessories may differ by country or area.
