NIKON ANNOUNCES CONNECTED COOLPIX S6600 AND HIGH ZOOM COOLPIX L620 CAMERAS
Nikon today announces two new compact cameras in its COOLPIX line up: the connected Nikon COOLPIX S6600 with vari-angle LCD screen, built-in WiFi for easy sharing and a 12x zoom NIKKOR lens; and the ergonomic Nikon COOLPIX L620 with enhanced zoom and Full HD movie.
The Nikon COOLPIX S6600 – See the world from a new perspective
Taking stunning self-portraits just got easier with the addition of the COOLPIX S6600’s vari-angle screen, specifically designed to help compose images and shoot from high or low angles, eliminating the guesswork required for taking a self-portrait picture at arm’s length. What’s more, Gesture Control allows you to shoot stills or video and even control the zoom with a swipe of your hand when the screen is in self-portrait mode.
As well as enabling perfect portraits, the COOLPIX S6600 combines several features to ensure incredible picture quality in all conditions. The 16-megapixel, backlit CMOS sensor combines with the 12x optical zoom to deliver vivid photos and movies, even in the brightest daylight or in low light night time scenes. Full HD movie with stereo and optical zoom gives even more creative options, especially as the vari-angle screen can follow the action from any level.
James Loader, Senior Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon UK, comments: “This stylish new model makes capturing stunning images easy, thanks to a combination of its intelligent technologies and convenient vari-angle screen. So whether you are shooting portraits or landscapes, this slim compact, with wifi capability, is a must have for budding photographers who want to stay connected.
With pictures you can be proud of, the camera also has a raft of filters and effects to give them a unique touch. Quick Effect Mode can apply a special effect directly after taking a shot at the touch of a button, making it simple to add your own creativity before instantly uploading. The camera also features 30 different effects and 18 scene modes for unparalleled possibilities. A great travel companion, the COOLPIX S6600 also offers Easy Panorama, for shooting breath-taking views without complication and blur and vibration reduction (VR) to ensure your images stay steady. Available in a selection of four colours (black, red, purple, white) your camera will look as stunning as the scenery.
The Nikon COOLPIX L620 – High zoom, designed to impress
Also announced is the COOLPIX L620, a new addition to the high zoom L series. The 18 megapixel CMOS BSI sensor, combined with a 14x wide-angle NIKKOR zoom lens, ensures the COOLPIX L620 gets top quality results every time, while its intuitive operation puts fun and freedom at the heart of photography.
James Loader, Senior Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon UK, comments: “With a 14x high zoom and range of scene modes, the COOLPIX L620 is ideal for getting close to the action and capturing memorable images with ease. Holidaymakers will particularly appreciate the AA battery port straight into the grip, making it easy to recharge and keep shooting. And, for added creativity, the camera features fun creative effects and Full HD movie.”
The COOLPIX L620 features Easy Panorama, blur reduction, lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) and Target Finding AF (autofocus), which automatically identifies subjects allowing you to point and shoot, safe in the knowledge that you’ll get the best shot possible, whatever your skill level.
