Nikon Intros Super-Slim, 5.1 Megapixel Camera



Personal Tech Pipeline

Nikon today introduced the new ultra-slim, $380 Coolpix S1 -- a 5.1-megapixel camera featuring technology like Face Priority auto focus, enhanced image quality and improved speed.

The camera has a bright 2.5-inch LCD screen and is only 3/4-inch thin. It's fast, and features continuous shooting at 1.8 fps (and starts up in less than 2 seconds).

The S1 features Nikon's In-Camera Red-Eye Fix technology, which detects and corrects red eyes in most typical situations without the need to press buttons or select and highlight the eyes in playback.

The S1's D-Lighting feature can be selected in Playback mode - automatically compensating for insufficient flash or excessive back lighting in order to obtain balanced exposure throughout the frame.

The S1 is also equipped with Blur Warning, which alerts the user when a shot is compromised by camera or hand shake, allowing another shot to be taken before leaving the scene.

The camera offers four Scene Modes that feature Scene Assist, and even a new Underwater Scene Mode and Voice Recording Mode that brings the total choice of Scene Modes up to 17. Intended for use with the Waterproof Case WP-CP5, the Underwater Scene Mode enables true-to-life colors to be captured when taking shots while snorkeling or scuba diving.

The S1 can be connected to a TV using the included video cable.

The camera ships in April.
