Mississauga, ON, February 3, 2009 - Nikon Canada today introduced eight new COOLPIX cameras to its popular line-up of compact digital cameras. These include one Performance (P) Series camera; four Style (S) Series cameras; and three Life (L) Series cameras.

Combining design with advanced features and functionality, the latest COOLPIX models are stylish, easy-to-use and continue to offer the quality and high performance for which Nikon is known, said Gregory Flasch, Nikon Canada's Manager of Advertising and Communications. Consumers want a digital camera that reflects their individuality. They look at components such as what technology the camera offers, how it looks, how it feels and most importantly the quality of images the camera produces. Nikons COOLPIX line-up offers something for everyone.

The eight new COOLPIX cameras incorporate Nikons world-class NIKKOR lenses that deliver extremely accurate detail and brilliant colour, as well as Nikons EXPEED™ advanced digital image processing system technologies, which ensures high-quality pictures with remarkable colour and sharpness. New COOLPIX in-camera features include Smart Portrait System, which ensures a bright smile is captured without the subject blinking; Enhanced Face-priority Auto Focus (AF), which can detect up to 12 faces-per-image and adjusts brightness on the subjects face to ensure well-balanced exposure of the entire picture; and Scene Auto Selector, which automatically selects the most appropriate mode according to the picture-taking situation. These features simplify photography and help ensure every picture is a beautiful keepsake.

Nikon COOLPIX P90 Feature Highlights

Nikons exclusive Smart Portrait System
Automatically detecting as many as 12 faces in the shot, Face-priority AF helps produce satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure. Smile Timer helps to faithfully record precious moments by automatically releasing the shutter when the subject smiles. The new Blink Proof function automatically shoots two sequential frames and saves the shot in which the subjects eyes are open. The advanced red-eye reduction capability of In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects any perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.

VR image stabilization for sharper results
Compensating for the effects of camera shake to realize sharper results and creating a more reassuring shooting experience, image sensor shift VR (vibration reduction) image stabilization lets users enjoy capturing special moments without worrying about slight hand movements. This is particularly helpful when taking advantage of the 24x zoom lens' super-telephoto focal lengths or when shooting in low-light conditions.

ISO 6400 capability provides extended shooting range
A variety of light sensitivity controls create new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking photos in low-light conditions or to capture fast-moving subjects with outstanding clarity. Sensitivity of up to ISO 6400 can be set using manual control. Auto control is available for settings between ISO 64 through ISO 800. High ISO Sensitivity Auto (ISO 64-1600) can be used to have the camera analyze the brightness of the scene and automatically select the optimum ISO setting. Fixed range auto allows sensitivity to be limited between a range from ISO 64 to 100, 200 or 400.

3-inch vari-angle LCD and electronic viewfinder
In addition to its 3-inch high-resolution vari-angle LCD with anti-reflection coating, the COOLPIX P90 features the versatility of an electronic viewfinder that further enhances compositional freedom and accuracy under all lighting conditions.

Nikons innovative Active D-Lighting function
Enabled during shooting, Active D-Lighting is a unique technology that adds light and detail where necessary while leaving correctly exposed areas untouched to produce significantly improved images with a more natural-looking finish.

Quick Retouch adds the right finishing touch to your photos by automatically creating a retouched copy with the best balance of contrast and saturation.

The newly developed 3-inch touch control LCD features intuitive fingertip shooting control and a variety of exciting playback options.

Advanced shooting features include the ability to lock autofocus and exposure on a subject by simply touching the subjects face on the screen. When used in conjunction with the Portrait One-Touch Zoom function available in Portrait or Night Portrait scene modes, another simple touch of the screen commands the camera to set its three-step automatic zoom to deliver the right amount of framing for waist, bust or close-up shots.

Touch control also lends a new dimension of fun to viewing and retouching images. The speed and ease of fingertip scrolling through images and instant image selection makes it easy to edit or share images. The supplied stylus can be used with a variety of input, retouch and image enhancement functions. Included is the Paint Function, which enables memos, drawings, colourful borders or stamps to be added directly to images. There is also an independent Handwritten Memo function, which allows memos or drawings entered on the touch screen to be stored as JPEG files.
