Coolpix S1 is a 5.1-megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera equipped with a 2.5-inch screen. It’s Nikon’s smallest and thinnest digital camera yet, and the first to feature a 2.5-inch LCD display.
The Coolpix S1 eatures “Face Priority” autofocus as well as faster speed and better image quality than previous Coolpix cameras. It can also automatically detect and eliminate red-eye while pictures are still on board. A new D-Lighting function compensates for insufficient flash or excessive back lighting. Blur Warning alerts the user when a picture might be ruined due to camera or hand shake. PictBridge compatibility lets you send pictures to PictBridge-compatible printers without needing a Mac or PC first.
The Coolpix S1 also touts a 3x optical zoom lens equivalent to a 35-105mm lens in 35mm format. It weighs 4.2 ounces sans battery or memory card, and measures 3.5 x 2.3 x 0.8 inches. It includes a cradle for easy data transfer and recharging. The Coolpix S1 is coming in April for US$379.95.
