PRESS SUMMARY

Nikon announces the ultra-slim 7-Megapixel Coolpix S200 - digital camera and photography newsSlim styling and fine quality that makes digital photography more fun everywhere you go

Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX S200. Packing style, advanced functions and high performance into an ultra-slim design, this new compact digital camera lets anybody enjoy the ease and quality of COOLPIX photography.

With its advanced functions wrapped comfortably into a super-thin aluminum body measuring just 18.5mm*, the COOLPIX S200 blends classic camera design with sophisticated styling. And its quality materials and construction are instantly recognizable when taken into the hand.

Combining 7.1 effective megapixels of imaging performance with a 38-114mm (35mm equivalent) 3x Zoom-Nikkor lens, the COOLPIX S200 ably captures everything from panoramic landscapes to close-up portraits with outstanding clarity and true-to-life color. Electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) compensates for camera shake to realize yet sharper results.

Anti-shake mode adds to the fun of carefree shooting without compromising image quality, automatically activating e-VR, setting the optimal ISO for steady results, and employing BSS (Best Shot Selector) to select the sharpest image from up to ten sequential shots. And High-Sensitivity mode makes the most of the cameras' extended light sensitivity range by choosing the optimal setting up to ISO 1000, a major benefit when shooting fast-moving subjects or aiming to achieve clearer results in lower light.

The COOLPIX S200's bright 2.5-inch LCD with anti-reflection coating is a pleasure to work with, even in bright sunlight. Its new menu interface, which cleverly employs illustrated help dialogs, makes a snap of navigating, selecting modes and all related operations, while providing easy access to advanced functions for enhancing or correcting images as desired. This includes Nikon's triad of innovative in-camera functions for optimizing results: Face-priority AF, In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, and D-Lighting.

The COOLPIX S200 ships with a complimentary copy of Nikon's exclusive PictureProject software. Powerful yet delightfully easy to use, PictureProject is the fun and efficient way to organize, edit and share photos with family and friends.

*Measures 18.5mm at thinnest portion of camera.
