London, UK, 24 Aug 2011 - Nikon today announces the addition of two new 'super-zoom' compact cameras to the COOLPIX Style (S) range. The duo consists of the colourful COOLPIX S6200, an ultra-compact camera with 16 megapixels and a 10x wide-angle NIKKOR zoom lens, and the powerful and precise COOLPIX S8200 with a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor and 14x wide-angle NIKKOR zoom lens.
"Both of these cameras open up new possibilities for those who want powerful performance in a compact body," comments Nicolas Gillet, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon Europe. "The COOLPIX S6200 is a true take-anywhere camera, with a versatility that means you'll get stunning images whether you're shooting intimate portraits of friends or getting pictures of the band from the back of a crowd. The COOLPIX S8200, meanwhile, offers wide-angle to super-telephoto coverage and incredibly quick response, so you'll never miss the moment, no matter how far away your subject is."
Strikingly stylish and extremely portable, the COOLPIX S6200 packs an impressive 10x wide-angle NIKKOR zoom lens into a remarkably compact, vibrantly coloured body. A 16 megapixel image sensor lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, crop creatively and produce stunningly sharp poster-size enlargements. Automatic anti-blur functions ensure consistently great results and Night landscape mode delivers high quality images in low light.
Making it easy to get creative, the COOLPIX S6200 can shoot still images or movies using a special effect, and can apply a range of filter effects to still images after they have been taken. Effects to shoot with include Soft Focus and Nostalgic Sepia, and the in-camera filter effects to enhance images include Cross Screen, Fisheye and Miniature Effect.
To deliver quality movies, the COOLPIX S6200 offers HD (720p) movie recording with stereo sound, four advanced blur-reduction functions, and high ISO (up to 3200) light sensitivity to reduce the risk of blurred images with fast-moving subjects or in low-light.
The COOLPIX S6200 comes in six colours: white, red, black, blue, silver and pink
Beyond its powerful 14x zoom wide-angle NIKKOR lens, the COOLPIX S8200 offers up a highly sensitive 16 megapixel back illuminated CMOS image sensor, ensuring that even in low light or extremely bright conditions, the camera will easily capture the scene, so both night and day shots are recreated exactly as you experienced them. Combined with fast auto focus, incredibly quick start up speeds and fast continuous shooting speeds, this camera makes sure you never miss the action. Completing the package, Full HD (1080p) movie-recording with stereo sound offers more versatility than ever before.
The COOLPIX S8200 comes in four colours: black, red, silver and white
