Nikon One•Touch Zoom 90s

Nikon have announced that the OneTouch Zoom 90s, 2.4x zoom compact camera will be introduced in February 2002.

Building upon the success of the OneTouch Zoom 90 that preceded it, the OneTouch Zoom 90s marks a refinement in design, with a translucent lens cover front accent that makes the camera more streamlined.

This camera is targeted at those who appreciate its combination of superior value-for-performance, functional simplicity, compact convenience and casual sophistication.

Not only does it feature a new slightly thinner, lighter look -- the OneTouch Zoom 90s gives basic zoom picture-taking an extra touch of creativity and flexibility, Nikon style. The 2.4x zoom lens lets users frame subjects with ease within a 38-90mm range. Versatile flash accommodates most shooting conditions. Macro mode allows shooting as close as 30cm (12 in.) from the subject. Fully automatic operation makes it especially easy not to miss a photo opportunity, so everyone can enjoy taking pictures more.

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