The Nikon COOLPIX S01 Digital Camera (Silver) is more than your typical compact point-and-shoot; it's a convenient pocket cam that anyone can master. For example, the S01's 2.5" touch screen features 4 large icon-based touch buttons that easily guide you to all the camera's menu options for still and video capture, playback, and in-camera editing and creative functions.
Albeit simple, the camera is also a decent image maker with 10.1MP of resolution, a NIKKOR lens (29-87mm 35mm equivalent), 3x optical zoom, and a built-in flash. This means you can capture detailed subjects near and far, and shoot at night or in low-light with confidence. The S01 also records 720p HD video. No matter how you choose to record your memories, however, the camera stores it all to its built-in 7.3GB memory.
The S01 also features a built-in battery. This means no spare batteries to carry around and you never need worry about losing the camera's power source. Additional highlights of the camera include modes like creative filters and special effects for enhancing your images in-camera. And you will especially benefit from the Easy Auto Mode which takes all the guess work out of shooting. Simply point the S01 and capture the moment!
The incredibly compact design of the S01 allows it to fit in your pocket, and not get in the way of the moments you're capturing. Grab it and go, shooting with automatic Scene Detection and Special Effects to deliver unique images without fumbling with controls, or missed opportunities.
10.1MP Resolution 1/2.9" CCD Sensor
Capture all the details and textures in your photos with the camera's 10.1 megapixel resolution image sensor. Having a large 3648 x 2736 resolution is ideal when you plan to create prints to share, or crop sections of an image when you wish to alter the composition after the fact.
29-87mm Equivalent NIKKOR VR Lens with 3x Optical & 4x Digital Zoom
For a camera this tiny, it still manages to shoot with a 3x Optical Zoom--the 35mm equivalent of a 29-87mm standard lens. This gives you a great range of popular focal lengths to use for anything from fun group photos or landscapes, to close-up portraits and zoomed images. The lens' 6 elements organized into 5 groups work to keep the quality of these images high, and the amount of aberrations low. You'll be ready to shoot nearly any situation and come out with quality images to share.
2.5" Rear Touch Screen LCD
The 2.5" touch screen LCD provides an intuitive interface, easy shooting options, and shows off your photos and videos in great detail and contrast. Having a screen that takes up nearly the entire backside of the camera allows a better view, while it also allows you to more easily make selections and tap to choose your focus.
EXPEED C2 Image Processor
The camera houses Nikon's EXPEED C2 Image Processor to power its systems and features. This ensures fast and reliable performance without sacrificing battery life. The camera was designed to be a fast, grab-and-go device and its image processor aids it in creating great shots over and over. Features such as the intuitive touch display, quick automatic shooting controls, and HD video capture are all made possible thanks to its fast processing speed and efficient design.
720p HD Movie Recording
What's better than capturing brand new videos of friends and family? Doing it with an HD camera that fits in the palm of your hand! Shoot HD 720p video anytime, anywhere right from the little S01 digital camera. With it you'll have the option of shooting HD quality video at 1280 x 720p / 30 fps or step down to Standard TV resolution of 640 x 480 / 30 fps to conserve storage space. No longer limited to still images, simply by tapping on the screen you can record every moment in motion--capturing vivid memories that one shot would not fully reproduce.
