The Small Camera that Loves to be Seen

Pocket-sized fashion accessory
Strikingly ultra-compact, the S01 is your portable companion.

The COOLPIX S01 is the new ultra-compact camera from Nikon. Weighing less than 100g and smaller than a credit card, its stand-out style makes it the most fashionable addition to the COOLPIX range to date, available in glossy red, mirror silver, white, black, or pink. But the COOLPIX S01 is not all about looks.

Easy-to-master camera operations
The intuitive touch-screen makes for easy operation.

Intuitive Touch Screen Operation

This pocket size camera with built-in flash, enjoys a 6.2 cm (2.5-in.) 230k-dot LCD touch screen with anti-reflective coating to ensure clear shooting and playback. Four large icon-based touch buttons make navigation easy and you can customise the home screen to suit your preferences and use one of your own photos as the background image.

Superb Quality in Minimum Size

Capture great shots with the 10.1 megapixel CCD sensor
Get focused with the 3x optical Zoom-NIKKOR wide-angle lens.

The COOLPIX S01 may be conveniently small, but you will still capture stunning Nikon-quality photos and video. Its 3x optical Zoom-NIKKOR wide angle lens (29-87mm) lets you zoom in for a flattering portrait, then out again for a family group shot. The 10.1 megapixel CCD sensor together with Motion blur reduction and High ISO (up to 1600) light sensitivity lets you capture beautiful images, perfect for playback on larger screens, for printing or for sharing online. And with Nikon's exclusive EXPEED C2 image-processing engine, optimising the camera’s technologies for quick response, superior performance and maximum image quality, your photos will be as stunning as your camera.

Record Life in High-Definition Motion with Ease

Thanks to the 3x optical zoom lens and 10-megapixel image sensor you will capture superior photos and HD movies (720p) with minimal effort. A simple touch of the screen in Movie Mode is all it takes to start recording your movie with autofocus and sound. The electronic vibration reduction technology, offers the perfect solution for reducing blur caused by camera shake when filming. And when you are ready to show off your masterpiece, the COOLPIX S01 has both NTSC and PAL video output.

The first one arrived faulty and it doesn't come with an instruction manual. Looked it up on Nikon site online and didn't give any explanation for the fault, red exclamation mark and message memory card will not format. Well as the card is an integral part of the camera I couldn't fixit. I rang Nikon and they advised me to return it to amazon. The second camera arrived very quickly and worked ok but now after 20 days the same fault has occurred on this camera so I am going to return it and not risk another one. It's a beautiful little camera and takes great pics but I will wait until the problems are ironed out before I risk another one. I have loads of photos on the camera which I am going to lose!

Colour Name: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Wow... this camera is TINY! I have a Canon IXUS, known for being small, and this Nikon camera is a new kind of small. I have quite big hands, but I still found the camera easy to handle. You have power, shoot and review buttons on top, everything else is done via. the touch screen, which is more or less the whole back of the camera. The photo quality is all you would expect from a big name like Nikon, that's to say it's very good.

It's 10Mp, which is plenty. Built in storage allows 3100 photo's at max resolution, again, more than enough for most people, even on a long holiday. The battery life seems very good also, I can't quantify it in hours, but I've used it for long periods with no problems. Battery is built in, which is a down side, but understandable at this size.

The bad points...
* The optical zoom is only 3x, not great, but to be expected in such a small camera I guess.
* I did find the touch screen quite difficult to use and at times very unresponsive, maybe this is due to my big fingers, but I found it annoying at times.
* My personal preference is to take photos without flash, and it annoyed me that I couldn't permanently disable the flash, I had to jump in and do it each time I turned the camera on. Not the end of the world, but annoying all the same.

It comes with a charger, USB cable and wrist strap, but no case.

All in all, a great LITTLE camera.

First of all you need to keep things in perspective --this is a tiny pocketable digital camera that can go anyhwere with you -and after all that's the point of photography with a compact camera isn't it? Something to carry with you wherever you go ? This is that camera -its tiny. Sure it won't take as good pictures as your large bulky expensive DSLR but its not trying to compete with that -its just a very small beautifully made compact camera that slips easily into your pocket, shirt sleeve or handbag. So don't expect it to take the same quality as your DSLR. That said -in fair to good light the pictures are great -low light -a little grainy. Very easy to use -turn on, take picture -job done. I've had many different cameras over the years including Leica, Olympus, Canon, Nikon digital and evern older medium format stuff like Bronica and Mamiya and the Blad -this will not take that kind of quality photo -BUT it will be instantly available and ready for that snap shot wherever you go -and to me thats worth the purchase price of this little Nikon. No SD card to worry about, No Battery to concern yourself with ( its in- built and not user replaceable -much like your iphone battery thats sealed in ) -Take picture plug in USB Lead to computer and it downloads instantly -simple.
I'm fussy about my photography and it grieves me that some Photographers whinge about the quaility of this little Nikon when they compare it to a normal size digital compact or full size DSLR. Its not the same and you cannot compare it. To me -it takes great photos -photos that you would probably have missed because you have left your camera at home -and yes its much better than a phone camera. For its size and price ( and Amazon is by far the cheapest at the time of writing this ) its super.

Colour Name: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Wow, I abosolutely love the Nikon 'Coolpix S01', not only does it look good but it is a dream to use also.

The camera comes boxed and includes a strap, ac adapter, usb cable, manual and warrenty.

So what's so amazing about the Coolpix S01?

Well, it's small, just 1.7 cm x 7.7 cm x 5.1 cm and weighs 95 g. Small enough to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand. The one I have received is a stunning sleek high gloss black design.

Being small you might think it lacks some of the features a larger camera might have, not so, features include 10.1 megapixels, a wide optical 3X Nikkor zoom, it is touch screen, it has an almost full size LCD screen of 6.2 cm and also the ability to record HD 720p movies.

How does it perform?

The touch screen has an aniti reflective coating which ensures perfect playback every time.

Navigagtion is a breeze with the onscreen customisable menus.

The camera has a very quick start up time and every function works within moments including a super fast auto focus which allows you to capture memories the minute they happen.

The 10 mp CCD image sensor and NIKKOR 3x optical zoom lens produces high quality images and movies everytime for printing out or displaying on screen (either camera or larger screens).

I am absolutely thrilled with the Coolpx S01, since owning the camera I have managed to photograph a birthday celebration with ease, fantastic outside shots and movies of our Jack Russell playing tag with the children including a fantastic shot of her falling into our fish pond whilst chasing a leaf.

This camera is easy to carry around with you and so quick to use, that it is perfect the those once in a lifetime shots that you just may miss otherwise.

10/10 score from me!
