London, UK, 1st Feb 2012 – Nikon unveils three new compact cameras that join its COOLPIX range. The trio consists of the COOLPIX S2600, an ultra-slim 14-megapixel camera with 5x optical zoom, the simple COOLPIX L25 with Easy Auto Mode, and the functional COOLPIX L26 with 16-megapixels and one-touch video recording.

“These three new cameras are ideal for people who are new to photography” comments James Loader, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon UK. “Whilst the COOLPIX S2600 is slim and pocketable, it is packed full of features including a wide-angle zoom, video recording and a range of automatic anti-blur features. Similarly, the COOLPIX L25 and COOLPIX L26 models are incredibly easy to use, with smart automatic technology that lets you capture great stills and movies, whatever your photography level.”

Stylishly simple: the COOLPIX S2600

At just 19.5mm wide, the pocketable COOLPIX S2600 can be taken wherever you go, ensuring you never miss a chance to capture memorable moments. From nights out with friends to a baby’s first smile, all the best bits of life can be savoured through crisp, sharp images or 720p video. 

The COOLPIX S2600’s precision NIKKOR 5x wide-angle zoom lens and 14-megapixel image sensor combine to deliver incredibly detailed images that make superb enlargements. As well as being easy to carry, it is also simple to use, with several automatic functions for effortless shooting. Easy Auto mode optimizes all camera settings according to the light you are shooting in, while Scene Auto Selector selects the optimum Scene mode. Meanwhile, four kinds of anti-blur technology, including e-VR (Vibration Reduction) automatically prevent blurry pictures.

When you’re feeling creative, an in-camera retouch menu makes it easy to add a little panache to your images without needing a computer, such as Selective Colour, which converts your image to monochrome then adds a splash of colour to an area of your choice.

The COOLPIX S2600 comes in the following colours: black, red and purple with line art.

An easy way to start: the COOLPIX L25

For anyone just starting out in photography, the COOLPIX L25 makes taking great pictures and videos effortless. Simple controls and smart automatic technology make this 10-megapixel camera clever with images—so you don’t have to be.

Easy Auto Mode optimizes all camera settings depending on what light you are in, ensuring your images are always impressive. Built-in electronic Vibration Reduction and Motion Detection avoids camera shake, and the Smart Portrait System includes features such as Smile Timer and Skin Softening, to ensure perfect portraits every time.

The COOLPIX L25 5x wide-angle zoom lens can capture everything from sharp close-ups to stunning group photos, and a large, 7.5 cm (3.0-in.) LCD screen enables you to review pictures with ease. The camera takes regular AA batteries, making it easy to power and ideal for taking anywhere.

The COOLPIX L25 comes in four colours: silver, black, red and white.

For the important things in life: the COOLPIX L26
The COOLPIX L26 is another stunningly easy-to-use camera that makes snapping photos and shooting movies a delight. With 16-megapixels, a NIKKOR wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens, a 7.5 cm (3.0-in.) LCD monitor, and 720p video recording, it has everything you need to capture the important things in life.

Easy Auto mode and one-touch video recording make snapping photos and shooting movies a delight. From close ups to family group shouts, the large megapixel count and sharp NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens deliver crisp images that make impressive enlargements. You can quickly upload images and videos directly to your phone or personal computer, making it easy to share with family and friends.
