Product Description

Colour Name: Blue

Product Description

Picture shows a young woman sitting at a dressing table painting her fingernails.
A 13.2 megapixel CMOS sensor combined with the EXPEED C2 image processor yields superb image detail, even in low light.

Small in size but huge in capabilities, the Nikon COOLPIX S02 delights with its portability and outstanding performance. With a sleek modern design featuring a 3x optical zoom and customisable touchscreen display, this camera offers all the functions of a larger model packed into a pocket-sized body smaller than a credit card. For fun, innovative photography with clever creative modes, the COOLPIX S02 delivers stunning images anywhere, anytime.

Good Things Come in Small Packages

Weighing just 100g and measuring just 77.1 x 51.3 x 17.5mm, the COOLPIX S02 fits your pocket as well as your lifestyle. The coated stainless steel body of the stylish design not only makes it a must-have fashion accessory but helps to reduce scratches when you’re out and about. Available in mirror silver, blue, pink or white, this colourful gem complements any style and completes a night out. But the COOLPIX S02 is not all about looks...

Motion Blur Reduction is highly effective in countering camera shake when exploiting the 3x zoom NIKKOR lens.

Optical Brilliance

The COOLPIX S02 creates amazing photos and video thanks to the combination of superior NIKKOR optics and a CMOS image sensor. The versatile 30-90mm 3x zoom NIKKOR glass lens[1] allows you to frame wide-angle group shots or zoom in to around 5cm in macro close-up mode, putting you right at the heart of the action. The 13.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor powers its way to deliver remarkably bright shots in low light, and together with Motion Blur Reduction and a 125-1600 ISO setting range, stunning results are easily achieved. In Night Landscape Mode and HDR Backlight Mode combining consecutive shots taken at high speed also produces superb photos in low light, so this camera really does work around the clock.

Touchscreen Technology

Capturing those spontaneous moments has never been easier as the operation of the COOLPIX S02 is intuitively simple. For easy operation, the customisable user interface displays four icon-based touch buttons on the large anti-reflective touch sensitive screen. At 6.7cm the screen is the perfect size for watching your videos, swiping through your photos, adjusting camera settings, and adding creative effects.

The Scene Auto Selector helps you get great party pictures and nighttime images using modes like Night Landscape and Night Portrait.

Movie Making

The COOLPIX S02 will satisfy any budding director looking for something portable yet versatile. At the touch of a button you can shoot Full HD (1080p) video complete with stereo sound, and take advantage of the zoom coverage to create the perfect scene. When switching to video, the large monitor really comes into its own allowing you to find the ideal composition, and with built-in Vibration Reduction minimising the effect of camera shake, you’ll always get the sharpest shots. Once you have your movie in the can, the recording can be enjoyed directly on HD televisions thanks to integrated HDMI connectivity[2].

Special Effects and Creative Functions

Have fun shooting and enhance your images with some unique artistic expression. For images already taken, you can apply one of eight Filter Effects like the retro Toy Camera effect, or the Fisheye effect. There are Special Effects available while you're shooting too. Get a different perspective using the Mirror effect, for example, or add a dramatic feel to your HD movie by using the nostalgic Sepia effect. So you can spend more time enjoying the creative features, the COOLPIX S02 also incorporates Scene Auto Selector to help users reliably capture beautiful pictures with the optimal camera settings.

Carefree Photography

With an in-built lithium-ion battery and 7.3GB internal memory there is no need for memory cards when you’re on the go. Super-convenient USB charging allows you to top up your camera’s power while you’re downloading images or simply surfing online.

The COOLPIX S02 from Nikon might be the smallest member of the COOLPIX family, but packed full of power and exciting creative features, it is a photographic must-have.

[1] Actual focal length of 4.1-12.3mm has an angle of view equivalent to that of a 30-90mm lens in 35mm [135] format.
[2] An HDMI cable (not supplied) with a Type D connector is required.

Colour Name: Silver
The new Nikon S02 is going to raise questions about whether a pocket camera with a sensor much smaller than typical pocket cameras is needed today, when cellphones with very small sensors are getting better, even to the extent of putting 41 mp on a cellphone sensor as Nokia apparently has done. Since I don't have access to a Nokia cellphone, I can only relate to these questions by comparing the S02 to the items I do have access to - the nearest in quality and capability above and below the S02. The iPhone5 makes for a good comparison on the lesser side, and the Panasonic LF1 7x pocket zoom camera makes for a good comparison on the better side.

The iPhone5's daylight images exhibit a lot of random smearing or lack of detail across the image, seen at 100 percent view, which seems to me to be a result of the camera's lens imperfections rather than the sensor. The Panasonic LF1's images are excellent in the center and out nearly to the edges, but there is a breakdown in quality at and near the edges of the image, again due to the lens I believe. The Panasonic LX7 has the same or lesser sensor than the LF1, but its images are clear and detailed edge to edge. In between the iPhone5 and LF1 is the S02 - having a 3x optical zoom lens gives it a big advantage over the iPhone5, and despite the tiny size of the S02 lens, the quality seems very good based on examining its images. So the combination of menu features, a better quality lens, and the 3x optical zoom give the S02 a clear advantage over the iPhone5's camera. Note that my tests of the new iPhone5s show its camera to be not as good as the iPhone5's camera.

Comparing the S02 to the LF1, the main difference is the pixel quality based on the large versus small sensor sizes.

The camera on my mobile phone stopped working and was not really suitable for what I wanted any way. I wanted a camera that I could take everywhere and this little camera fits in the pocket and you don't know its there. For the price and size it takes a very good picture. Obviously not for the professional, or the serious amateur but great for those times when you need a good camera quickly and unlike most phones this has a proper zoom that does not lose pixels.

I thought this camera would be bigger in size and was slightly disappointed when it arrived. However, I have been really impressed by the quality of photos it takes, the picture options available and the film setting too. It has a massive memory and is very easy to down load. It small size has not taken away from what it can do. All-in-all I am very pleased with this purchase and won't be handing on to my youngest daughter any more!

Choose this little camera for a skiing holiday. It is small and fits into the pocket well, robust and takes reasonable images. Great buy.
