Nikon Coolpix S1 Nikon Coolpix S1

Nikon has introduced the Coolpix S1, the first in a new series of cameras designed to blend portability with style. The S1 has an aluminum exterior and slim dimensions, 89.9 x 57.5 x 19.7mm. Its right-angled optic system allows the zoom lens to function without protruding from the camera body.

The S1 incorporates 5.1-megapixel performance and a 35-105mm 3x Zoom-Nikkor ED lens (35mm equivalent). The 2.5-inch LCD monitor boasts 110,000-dot clarity, removing the need for a viewfinder. A graphic user interface allows for function selection by name or icon, and a help button displays explanations for functions on the main menu.

The S1 has been designed to operate with reduced energy consumption, allowing a greater number of shots per battery. The camera has fast start-up times and can shoot up to approximately 1.8 frames per second.

Nikon's D-Lighting function automatically compensates for pictures taken with excessive backlight or insufficient flash. Its in-camera red-eye fix detects and digitally corrects the red-eye effect caused by flash photography. In addition, a face-priority autofocus function provides optimal automatic focus for sharper portraits.

The suggested retail price for the Coolpix S1 is $379.
