TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the five new COOLPIX S-series models that incorporate advanced functions in a stylish design.
The Nikon COOLPIX S9100, which establishes a new branch in the S-series lineup, is a high-performance model equipped with a slim new 18× zoom lens and a backside illumination CMOS sensor that effectively suppresses noise in photos taken at high sensitivities. Together, these two features enable the capture of beautiful photos of dark scenes, including night landscapes and indoor scenes. What's more, the camera also offers support for recording of full-HD movies. The Nikon COOLPIX S6100 is successor to the S6000 and offers the same technologies for capturing beautiful, blur-free photos of difficult nighttime scenes that made the S6000 so popular. A touch panel LCD monitor has been adopted for the S6100, which also offers an effective pixel count of 16-million pixels. The Nikon COOLPIX S4100 and S3100 are even slimmer than their predecessors, the S4000 and S3000, and offer improved zoom functions and come in a rich variety of stylish color options. Finally, the Nikon COOLPIX S2500 is released as a model with basic camera functions that make photography simpler and more enjoyable.
