The blue COOLPIX S02 Digital Camera from Nikon is an ultra compact digital camera with a 13.2MP 1/3.1" CMOS image sensor that provides high resolution imaging and effective low-light capability with ISO sensitivities that range from 125-1600. Its 3x optical zoom lens with a 35mm focal length equivalency of 30-90mm is versatile enough for inclusive day-to-day shooting. The S02 is the successor to the equally compact S01, but brings with it an updated CMOS sensor, Full HD video and a larger LCD monitor.

The COOLPIX S02 is not only extremely compact at 3.0" long and 3.6 oz, but it is designed to be convenient and "worry-free". Its battery is built-in and can be recharged either from a wall outlet or directly from your computer and it needs no memory cards as it stores all photos and videos on its 7.3GB internal memory. A 2.7" LCD with 230k-dot resolution offers customizable touchscreen control for intuitive setting adjustments, creative enhancements and swipe and scroll playback.

Full HD 1080p video is supported at 30 fps with a built-in stereo microphone and Electronic Vibration Reduction for compensation against shake when recording videos while moving. Scene Modes like Back Lit HDR and Hand Held Night Scene offer assistance when capturing shots with difficult lighting and Scene Auto Selector lets the camera choose from several built-in settings to best match the shot you are taking. Face Detection autofocus will recognize faces within the frame and set optimal focus and exposure settings. Filter Effects enable you to add creative touches to your photos and videos either before or after you shoot.

Compact and Stylish Design
At just 3" long and 3.6 oz, the compact design of the S02 allows it to fit easily in your pocket without getting in the way or bulging out uncomfortably. Its sleek design with minimal buttons and dials and minute size make it an ideal camera for everyday use as well as for elegant events and discreet moments.
13.2MP 1/3.1" CMOS Sensor
Improving on the sensor in the S01, this CMOS sensor provides low-light sensitivity and high resolution imaging for both still photos and Full 1080 HD video.
3x Optical Zoom Lens with 30-90mm Equivalency
This lens gives you a great range of popular focal lengths to use for anything from fun group photos or landscapes, to close-up portraits and macro details. In the 35mm format, this lens is equivalent to a 30-90mm zoom lens and the S02 also provides 4x digital zoom for extended telephoto reach.
2.7" Rear Touchscreen LCD
The 2.7" touchscreen LCD provides an intuitive interface, easy shooting options, and shows off your photos and videos in detail and contrast with 230k-dot resolution. Having a screen that takes up nearly the entire backside of the camera allows for clear composition to easily make control selections and tap to choose your focus or adjust settings. Familiar swipe and expand gestures make image playback simple.
Full HD 1080p Movie Recording
Improving on the COOLPIX S01, the S02 now supports Full HD 1080p video capture. Electronic Vibration Reduction minimizes the affects of camera shake while shooting and a built-in stereo microphone provides quality audio recording.
Built-In 7.3 GB Memory, Battery & Flash
The S02 features a convenient built-in battery and approximately 7.3GB of internal memory for simplified use and operation. A built-in flash for capturing images indoors and in low-light is also provided.
Scene Auto Selector and Auto Scene Modes
Scene Auto Selector provides quick picture-taking in a variety of situations by determining the subject and surrounding conditions and then automatically selecting the appropriate adjustments for the shot from built-in scene modes, including Close UP, Night Landscape and Portrait. Scene Modes such as Back Lit Scene HDR lets the camera create a well-balanced image of scenes with difficult lighting by taking three shots of the same scene with different exposure settings and combining them into one.
Image Optimization and Filter Effects
With Image Optimization you can shoot both stills and videos with a creative look. Shoot in Sepia, Monochrome, Cyanotype and Vivid. Filter effects can be applied to still images and video after the shot has been taken. Enhance your images with a Soft, Fisheye, Miniature, and Toy Camera effects.

    Great little camera for the size!

    Comments about COOLPIX S02 Digital Camera (White):

    I bought this camera to keep in a cycling jersey pocket on vacation and it was perfect. The photos turned out crisp and clear. It is truly tiny and yet has a decent zoom for what we needed. The touchscreen was easy to use. The internal memory was nice and was not a problem in terms of space. I do wish it had a card as the iPad refused to upload the photos from this camera and so we had to wait until we returned from vacation to share them. (If it had a card we could have forced the upload via card reader). It's a perfect little camera for a pocket and better than potentially dropping your smartphone when trying to take a quick photo (or on a bike like we were). Great little camera

    Comments about COOLPIX S02 Digital Camera (Silver):

    I received this for my birthday to take on Motorcycle trips, My phone camera stinks and I needed something to take along.. It fits in 1/2 of my vest pocket and is very sturdy. Greats pictures as long as you hold it very steady. I have big hands and have no problem using it, the touch screen is much better than buttons. I have been taking it everywhere, not just on the bike as it is so easy to carry.
