Nikon Coolpix S5 announcement clippings

The COOLPIX S5 has been specially designed to be highly appealing as well as easy to use. More than merely having great styling, the eye-catching wave-surface design with thin, compact dimensions makes the COOLPIX S5 feel more comfortable in the hand. And in terms of control, the camera also features a new Rotary multi selector that allows fast circular scrolling for speedy image browsing at up to 10 frames per second. The Rotary multi selector also features a range of buttons that further simplify operation, while an on-screen icon with a cursor that tracks circular scrolling makes it easy to select desired features. Furthermore, users can choose to select functions by name or icon according to their preferences, and all menus and icons have been made easier on the eye with a new color scheme and optimized icon dimensions.
