With a Sure Grip that comfortably fits your hand, taking pictures with the S630 simply feels right. Its performance is right on the mark too. With 12 million effective megapixels, image-sensor shift VR (Vibration Reduction) and a superb 7x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, the quality of the images it produces will enhance any occasion. It boasts cutting edge features such as the all-new Blink Proof feature, which combines Smile mode and Blink Warning. This function detects a face and automatically takes two sequential shots when the subject smiles, then saves the one in which the subject's eyes are open. Add Scene Auto mode, which automatically adjusts the settings to suit the scene, a Sports Continuous Mode with up to 10 fps and a Quick Retouch function, and this is clearly a camera to be reckoned with. It is available in Black or Ruby Red.

The Nikon S620 – built for speed

Clocking in with a start-up time of just 0.7s, this is an extremely fast camera housed in a compact, well designed body. The S620 features 12.2 effective megapixels, a NIKKOR 4x zoom lens covering wide-angle 28mm (35mm-format equivalent), and a 2.7-inch, wide-viewing angle LCD monitor. Yet such a small body also houses a vast array of high-performance shooting features. Also unique for a compact digital camera, the S620 has a high sensitivity range up to ISO 6400 for low noise at full-size images. It also includes four anti-blur technologies, including lens-shift VR, and Motion Detection, new Blink Proof and Quick Retouch, Subject Tracking AF and Scene Auto Selector. The metallic body with its elegant curves is available in Bright Silver, Calm Black, Noble Purple and Precious Pink. It's the obvious choice for anyone looking for a combination of performance and style.

The Nikon S230 and Nikon S220 – sensible style and powerful simplicity

Slim, compact and stylish, this duo is perhaps the most elegant of the new S-Series. The S230 features a combination of an advanced 3.0 inch touch-screen with basic buttons, so taking photographs is great fun and very easy. It also incorporates an array of advanced functions such as the new Blink Proof, Quick Retouch, Scene Auto Selector and Scene Mode. Blink Proof ensures you won't take pictures of anyone with their eyes closed. Quick Retouch allows you to retouch images after they've been taken using advanced technologies from Nikon's award winning D-SLRs. Seventeen scene modes in the S230 and sixteen in the S220 allow you to choose the perfect camera settings for almost any shooting situation. In addition to 10 effective megapixels and a NIKKOR 3x zoom lens, these models offer Electronic Vibration Reduction, a high sensitivity range up to ISO 2000 and Motion Detection to make picture-taking easy in any situation. At just 18mm, the S220 is thin and lightweight (approx. 100 g) and has a 2.5-inch LCD monitor for reviewing your pictures. Both cameras have stylish metallic bodies that will fit any small bag and come in a range of fashionable colors varying from Soft Silver, Warm Silver, Aqua Green, Gloss Red, Night Blue, Cobalt Blue and Magenta to Black.

The S-Series comes with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery and charger, USB and audio/video cables, strap, and the COOLPIX software suite. In addition, the S230 includes a touch pen.
