Nikon has released four new Coolpix compact cameras. The S70 is equipped with an organic LED touch screen display, and the S1000pj contains the first built-in camera projector. For a more economical option, the S640 and S570 are now available with improved in-camera features.

The S70, with its 3.5-inch clear color display, has 12.1-megapixel resolution and a film speed range of ISO 60 to ISO 6400. Touch-screen enhancements for this camera include the touch shutter feature, brightness adjustment and scene effect manipulation. HD video can be recorded at 720p.

While projecting slide shows from the S1000pj, users can add music, effects and creative transitions between images. With 12.1 megapixels, a 2.7-inch LCD display, and a film speed range of ISO 60 to ISO 6400, this camera can project images up to 40 inches.

Features offered in all of these cameras include the smart portrait system, which utilizes adjustment options such as the skin softening feature; VR (vibration reduction) image stabilization to minimize blur; and scene auto selector, which intuitively selects the appropriate settings for each picture. Each camera also has a 5x wide-angle zoom lens.

The S70 retails for $399, and the S1000pj sells for an estimated $429. The S640 retails for around $249, while the most affordable of these four cameras, the S570, is priced at $199.
