Mississauga, ON, September 5, 2013 – Today, Nikon Canada Inc. introduced the tiny COOLPIX S02, a stylish, super-compact camera that proves great image quality can come in small packages. It’s ideal for those who seek easy-to-use features and speedy performance, whether on-the-go or out on the town with friends.
“The COOLPIX S02 is Nikon’s latest super-sleek offering, designed to give users a simple way to achieve exceptional image quality with stylish flair,” said Gregory Flasch, National Advertising and Communications Manager at Nikon Canada. “It’s incredibly user-friendly, and is perfect for capturing memorable moments with incredible detail and sharpness.”
Striking a balance between style and size, the COOLPIX S02’s ultra-compact design houses a 13.2-megapixel CMOS sensor to help users capture amazing image quality and Full HD (1080p) video, despite challenging lighting conditions. Its 3x zoom NIKKOR lens helps produce truly exceptional images, even when shooting from afar. And, though astoundingly small, the S02 features an easy-to-navigate home screen and a user interface with shortcut menus for quick operation, through a highly responsive 2.7-inch touch screen.
In addition to its fashionable, compact design, the COOLPIX S02 includes user-friendly features such as Scene Auto Selector Mode, which ensures users can effortlessly capture high-quality images. The ideal scene mode is automatically chosen based on the distinct shooting situation (Portrait, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Close-up and Backlighting), thereby allowing users to shoot with ease and confidence in almost any scenario or lighting condition. The COOLPIX S02 also includes a hand-held night scene mode for improved low-light shots and backlit scene High Dynamic Range (HDR) for improved picture quality even in brightly lit situations. Additionally, a group of special effects can be used to give images a new fun, creative twist, including Mirror, Sepia, High Contrast Monochrome, High Key and Low Key.
