The Nikon Coolpix S02: Super Compact, Stylish and Simple to Use


Melville, NY—Nikon’s tiny Coolpix S02 is a stylish, super-compact camera targeted at consumers who want easy-to-use features and fast performance. It has a simple-to-navigate home screen and user interface with shortcut menus for quick operation.

“The new Coolpix S02 is Nikon’s latest super-sleek offering to give consumers a simple way to achieve exceptional image quality with stylish flair,” said Bo Kajiwara, vice president of Marketing, Planning and Customer Experience, Nikon Inc. “The Coolpix S02 is user friendly, making it great for capturing memorable moments in an instant with ease.”

The camera’s compact design houses a 13.2 megapixel CMOS sensor to help users capture quality photos and Full HD 1080p video, even in challenging lighting. The sensor works with the S02’s 3x optical zoom Nikkor lens and responsive 2.7-inch touch screen.

Another user-friendly feature is scene auto selector mode, which allows users to confidently capture images in almost any scenario or lighting condition; the ideal scene mode is automatically chosen based on the distinctive shooting situation (portrait, landscape, night portrait, night landscape, close-up and backlighting). The S02 also includes a hand-held night scene mode for improved low-light shots and backlit scene HDR for improved picture quality even in brightly lit situations. Additionally, a group of special effects can be used to give images a creative twist, including mirror, sepia, high-contrast monochrome, high key and low key.

The Nikon Coolpix S02 retails for $179.95 and is available in silver, white, pink and blue versions.
