The Nikon Coolpix S6600 is a 16-megapixel compact camera with 12x optical zoom, built-in Wi-Fi and a side-hinged vari-angle monitor. In addition, Gesture Control recognizes the palm of the hand when the monitor is rotated to face the user, making it possible for users to perform a number of operations, including releasing the shutter and zooming in and out by simply moving their hand toward the appropriate icon displayed in the monitor. This function can also be used with movie recording. The 25-300mm equivalent lens offers a built-in lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function and supports macro photography with shooting as close as 2cm to the lens. The Nikon Coolpix S6600 will be available next month, priced at £199.99/€239.00.
