A camera for the catwalk: introducing the fashionable COOLPIX S01
22nd August 2012, The Netherlands: Nikon Europe presents the COOLPIX S01, a striking microcam that marks the most fashionable addition to date for the COOLPIX range. Even though it has a body smaller than a credit card, its stand-out style makes sure it is noticed. In glossy red, mirror, white, black, or pink, with a 3x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, 6.2cm (2.5”) touchscreen, 10.1 MP CCD image sensor, 7.3GB internal memory and 720p movie, it’s the camera you can use anytime, anywhere.
Nicolas Gillet, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon Europe, comments: “The COOLPIX S01 is irresistible. With its ultra-compact body and feather-like weight, it is unbelievably cute, and yet it packages up enough top-end technology to ensure great photos every time. When it’s tucked away in a bag or purse, you probably won’t even know you are carrying it, but when you do whip it out, the 3x optical zoom lens and the 10.1-megapixel image sensor will not fail to impress. Its easy-to-use touch screen makes it fun to shoot movies with special effects or apply creative filters to photos you have taken. Not only is the camera a super-stylish fashion accessory, it’s also a miniature photo and movie expert.”
With an in-built battery and 7.3GB internal memory, the super sleek and ultra-streamlined COOLPIX S01 can store up to 3,000 images at full resolution or 3 hours of video in VGA quality in the camera, with no need for memory cards or external charging units.
Meanwhile, the intuitive touchscreen operation encourages you to get hands on, to shoot beautiful images and movies using the 10.1-MP CCD image sensor. From a movie filmed with a nostalgic Sepia effect, to the retro feel of photos given a Toy Camera filter, there are plenty of creative effects to add a unique touch. Large menu icons on the touchscreen make navigation easy and you can customize the home screen to suit your preferences or use one of your own photos as the background image.
