The new Nikon Coolpix S1 has been announced. It took quite some time before Nikon created a competitor for Canon Ixus range. It has some — new to Nikon — nice features like a 2.5” LCD display and folded optics. The box is a nice companion to the iPod although I think I would not go for the “Ivory White” one. Also the PowerBook version, a “Pure Silver” one is not my favorite. So there is only one color left; an “
Ebony Professional Black” one. This version does not look like a gadget but just a pro-cam ;).
The camera has 5mpix, 35-105mm lens and a CoolStation docking station. According to the latest Nikon tradition, the firmware includes Face priority AF, in-camera red-eye reduction and D-Lighting.
So completely agree with you ET! This is something for in your back-pocket! Can’t wait to own one! Well, at least wait till april and have 380 bucks with me…
