Nikon unveils Coolpix S230, S220, S630, S620, P90, L100, L20, L19 digital camera
  

Nikon UK is introducing an upgraded S-Series line-up that includes the S630, S620, S230 and S220. All four models have been designed with one thing in mind: to offer users ultimate style, speed and simplicity in a compact camera body.

The S630 is compact, and stylishly designed with a special Sure grip for a comfortable finger-fit. The S620 has the best ISO standard of any compact camera in its class. The S230 is both stylish and easy to use thanks to its advanced touch-screen system, while the S220 looks elegant, but easy to use. All 4 models are available in colours that fit any taste or personality, and all feature Nikon’s EXPEED image-processing concept.

Mark Pekelharing, Product Manager Consumer Products at Nikon Europe B.V: “We are very proud of our colourful new S-Series line-up and believe we have a camera to suit anyone’s taste. The cameras are a joy to use. They look good, feel good and produce stunning pictures.”

The S630 – fit for anyone
With a Sure Grip that comfortably fits your hand, taking pictures with the S630 simply feels right. Its performance is right on the mark too. With 12 million effective megapixels, image-sensor shift VR (Vibration Reduction) and a superb 7x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, the quality of the images it produces will enhance any occasion. It boasts cutting edge features such as the all-new Blink Proof feature, which combines Smile mode and Blink Warning. This function detects a face and automatically takes two sequential shots when the subject smiles, then saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are open. Add Scene Auto mode, which automatically adjusts the settings to suit the scene, a Sports Continuous Mode with up to 10 fps and a Quick Retouch function, and this is clearly a camera to be reckoned with. It is available in Black or Ruby Red.

The S620 – built for speed

Clocking in with a start-up time of just 0.7s, this is an extremely fast camera housed in a compact, well designed body. The S620 features 12.2 effective megapixels, a NIKKOR 4x zoom lens covering wide-angle 28mm (35mm-format equivalent), and a 2.7-inch, wide-viewing angle LCD monitor. Yet such a small body also houses a vast array of high-performance shooting features. Also unique for a compact digital camera, the S620 has a high sensitivity range up to ISO 6400 for low noise at full-size images. It also includes four anti-blur technologies, including lens-shift VR, and Motion Detection, new Blink Proof and Quick Retouch, Subject Tracking AF and Scene Auto Selector. The metallic body with its elegant curves is available in Bright Silver, Calm Black, Noble Purple and Precious Pink. It's the obvious choice for anyone looking for a combination of performance and style.

S230/S220 – sensible style and powerful simplicity
Slim, compact and stylish, this duo is perhaps the most elegant of the new S-Series. The S230 features a combination of an advanced 3.0 inch touch-screen with basic buttons, so taking photographs is great fun and very easy. It also incorporates an array of advanced functions such as the new Blink Proof, Quick Retouch, Scene Auto Selector and Scene Mode. Blink Proof ensures you won’t take pictures of anyone with their eyes closed. Quick Retouch allows you to retouch images after they’ve been taken using advanced technologies from Nikon’s award winning D-SLRs. Seventeen scene modes in the S230 and sixteen in the S220 allow you to choose the perfect camera settings for almost any shooting situation. In addition to 10 effective megapixels and a NIKKOR 3x zoom lens, these models offer Electronic Vibration Reduction, a high sensitivity range up to ISO 2000 and Motion Detection to make picture-taking easy in any situation. At just 18mm, the S220 is thin and lightweight (approx. 100 g) and has a 2.5-inch LCD monitor for reviewing your pictures. Both cameras have stylish metallic bodies that will fit any small bag and come in a range of fashionable colours varying from Soft Silver, Warm Silver, Aqua Green, Gloss Red, Night Blue, Cobalt Blue, Magenta and Purple to Black.

Nikon announces Coolpix L100, L20 and L19 budget cameras


Nikon announces three new affordable, exciting COOLPIX cameras: the L100, L20 and the L19. All three are packed with high-quality features that make taking photographs a joy, without stretching the budget.

With superb quality NIKKOR lenses, these cameras are both easy to carry and easy to use and include features such as Scene Auto selector, Smile Mode and Blink Warning - making great images possible for everyone.

The Nikon L100 boasts 10 effective megapixels, Nikon's EXPEED digital image processing system for high performance and a 15x zoom NIKKOR lens covering a wide-angle 28mm to super-telephoto 420mm (35mm-format equivalent) - you know you're going to capture almost any scene in detail.

Put it in macro mode, and you can even capture objects from as close up as 1 cm. With four anti-blur features, including Image Sensor Shift VR image stabilization, you can rest assured that it's also going to be in focus. You will also appreciate the L100 if you enjoy sports photography, as the L100's Sports Continuous Mode allows up to 13 fps.

Scene Auto Selector automatically adjusts the settings to suit the scene. Smile Mode takes the picture when your subject looks his or her best whilst Blink Warning warns you when your subjects have their eyes closed. Other features include In-Camera Red-Eye Fix for beautiful portraits, D-Lighting for in-camera image enhancement, 15 Scene Modes, movies with sound, and Active Zoom, amongst others.

With a sensitivity range up to ISO 3200, problems images in poor lighting are a thing of the past. This is further enhanced by the camera's Motion Detection system, which detects camera shake or subject movement during shooting, automatically selecting a faster shutter speed and higher ISO sensitivity.


The Nikon L20 and the Nikon L19 (10 and 8 effective MP respectively) have several features that ensure smooth and comfortable shooting, such as Full-Auto Mode, Scene Auto Selector, Smile Mode and Blink Warning.

Power them with two AA-size batteries that are available anywhere, and you'll never miss a shot. Large buttons and controls, and a 3-inch and 2.7-inch LCD monitor on the L20 and L19 respectively, improve operational ease. Both cameras record movies and a special new feature for both is the Scene Auto Selector. This automatically judges a scene by its subject and surrounding conditions and chooses the best setting. Now you won't have to worry about the mode-setting procedure and you will always be ready for speedy, smooth shooting.

The L20 is available in black metallic and deep red, the L19 in bright silver or shiny pink.


The L100, L20 and L19 come with a strap, AA-batteries, USB and audio/video cables, and the COOLPIX software suite.
