Nikon Canada Introduces Four New COOLPIX Cameras Offering Superior Performance, Design and Innovation

Nikon continues to lead in innovation with an all new touch-screen camera and world’s first compact digital camera featuring a built-in projector*

Mississauga, ON, August 4, 2009 – Nikon Canada today introduced four new COOLPIX cameras to its popular line-up of Style (S) Series compact digital cameras, including two more world’s firsts with the S1000pj featuring the world’s first built-in projector* and the ultra-fast focus S640 with the world’s fastest start-up time in its class*.


“Nikon does it again with two more world’s firsts offering consumers new features and functionality,” said Gregory Flasch, Nikon Canada’s Manager of Advertising and Communications. “The COOLPIX S1000pj is the industry’s first compact digital camera with a built-in projector to project pictures almost anywhere. And with the camera’s unique slideshow function, users can playback pictures with music, effects and creative transitions to make sharing pictures with family and friends even more entertaining. The new COOLPIX S640 features an ultra-fast focus and world’s fastest start-up time in its class so it’ll always be ready to capture the moment. The COOLPIX S70 touch screen features a new OLED display and offers advanced touch screen functionality that makes picture-taking easier and more enjoyable. Finally, the COOLPIX S570 offers advanced performance with easy operation in a stylish, compact body.”

All Nikon COOLPIX cameras incorporate Nikon’s world-class NIKKOR lenses, delivering extremely accurate detail and brilliant colour, as well as Nikon’s EXPEED™ advanced digital image processing system technologies, which ensure high-quality pictures with amazing colour and sharpness. The four new S-Series cameras feature VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization for blur-free images – even in low-light or unsteady conditions – and Scene Auto Selector, which automatically recognizes the scene and adjusts camera settings accordingly. Nikon’s Smart Portrait System in these new models now includes an all new Skin Softening feature that is designed to both smooth and even skin tones.

NIKON COOLPIX S1000PJ
World’s first compact camera featuring built-in projector

The COOLPIX S1000pj is the world’s first compact digital camera* to feature a built-in projector. With a simple touch of a button, the camera projects favourite photos or movies clips on any flat surface at up to 40 inches in size. Pictures can be projected individually, or as slide shows complete with music, effects and creative transitions. It’s a fun new way to share your pictures with family and friends.

The 12.1 megapixel COOLPIX S1000pj features the precision optics of a 5x zoom NIKKOR lens offering the compositional freedom of 28mm wide-angle coverage (35mm format equivalent) and macros shooting ability from as close as 3 cm. This combines with the image quality and performance benefits of Nikon’s innovative EXPEED™ advanced digital image processing system technologies, which help ensure consistently beautiful pictures.

The intelligent automated shooting modes found on the COOLPIX S1000pj assist with carefree shooting. Scene Auto Selector makes it faster and easier to capture a moment. Subject Tracking follows a subject’s movement to ensure clear focus and quick response. Subject Tracking will even function if the subject momentarily moves out of the frame within three seconds.

The COOLPIX S10000pj offers five advanced Nikon image stabilizing features1 including lens shift and electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization systems, high ISO 64002 capability, motion detection and Nikon’s original Best Shot Selector (BSS). Nikon’s Smart Portrait System now includes Skin Softening function that detects and analyzes a framed subject’s skin, and then adjusts smoothness to produce enhanced results. Other Smart Portrait System features include Face-priority AF, Smile Timer that automatically releases the shutter when the subject smiles, Blink Proof function, Blink Warning, and incamera Red-Eye Fix.

A handy projector stand is included with the S1000pj, as is a remote control that can be used to operate the projector, release the shutter, and more.

The COOLPIX S1000pj will be available in black. Colour selection may vary by country.

Nikon’s Smart Portrait System with Skin Softening
Face-priority AF helps produce more satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure for as many as 12 faces in the framed shot. Skin Softening function detects and analyzes a framed subject’s skin, adjusting the smoothness to produce enhanced results. Smile Timer automatically releases the shutter when the subject smiles. The Blink Proof function shoots two sequential frames, then saves the one in which the subject’s eyes are open widest. Blink Warning presents an alert when it suspects that someone in the shot has blinked. In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects any perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.

Intelligent automated shooting modes that promote carefree shooting
Nikon’s Scene Auto Selector makes it faster and easier to capture the moment by eliminating the need to manually select a scene mode to match the intended shot. This intelligent function determines the subject, analyzes the surrounding settings, and then automatically selects the appropriate scene mode for optimal results. Subject Tracking enhances the shooting experience by following the subject’s movement to ensure clear focus and quick response when that special shutter opportunity presents itself. Subject Tracking even functions if the subject moves out of the frame within three seconds.

Quick Retouch
Quick Retouch automatically adjusts the contrast and saturation of selected photos to create an enhanced copy with the right finishing touch.

NIKON COOLPIX S70
Touch-screen operation with advanced functions and vibrant Clear Colour OLED Display

The COOLPIX S70, built on the success of Nikon’s previous touch-screen models, introduces Nikon’s newly developed 3.5-inch Clear Colour OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) Display with a new generation of touch-screen controls offering a new level of intuitive fingertip shooting control and a variety of exciting playback options.

OLED screen technology delivers the immediately recognizable benefits of vivid colour reproduction, sharp contrast and absence of after-images. Nikon combines this with its own innovative Clear Colour Display technology. In addition, highly responsive new capacitive touch screen technology adds the benefit of sure and immediate response at the lightest touch of the display’s glass surface for a fun and intuitive feel to every camera operation. For example, with the Touch Shutter feature, users can have a button-free experience as they focus on their subject and take the photograph simply by touching the subject on the camera’s display. Viewing pictures with fingertip scrolling, using a two-finger pinching motion to zoom in or out, or switching between thumbnail and full-screen views is fast and efficient, as is retouching pictures incamera. Additional new touch-screen controls include on-screen sliders for adjusting brightness and Scene Effect Adjustment, which offers controls specific to the scene mode in use.

High-performance imaging capabilities include 12.1 megapixels of sharp resolution matched to the compositional freedom of a precision 5x zoom NIKKOR lens that ably covers focal lengths from 28-140mm (35mm format equivalent). Nikon’s innovative EXPEED™ advanced digital image processing system technologies faithfully reproduce fine details and subtle tones, deliver quick response and maintain image quality and clarity.

High-performance features include Scene Auto Selector, and the new Skin Softening function that detects and analyzes a framed subject’s skin and then adjusts smoothness. Also included are functions to reduce image blur such as a high sensitivity range up to ISO 6400(3), lens-shift VR (Vibration Reduction), electronic VR, and Motion Detection, Touch AF/AE, and Smile Timer that releases the shutter when the subject smiles.

The COOLPIX S70 features a slim body wrapped in an attractive dual texture design. It will be available in red on red or black on black. Colour selection may vary by country.
