Nikon Introduces Two New Digital Cameras, the COOLPIX S6600 and COOLPIX P7800

Nikon has announced the release of the COOLPIX S6600, the first COOLPIX S-series model equipped with a vari-angle monitor, as well as the COOLPIX P7800, a high-performance compact digital camera that offers many functions for enjoying full-scale manual photography.


Capable of flexible shooting, from low angles to high, the COOLPIX S6600 comes with a Gesture Control function that allows the user to control the camera remotely by moving their hand when taking self portraits. With a 16-megapixel backside illumination CMOS image sensor, the camera emits very little noise in images captured at high sensitivities, and features a lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function, and a 12x optical zoom NIKKOR lens with a closest focusing distance of just 2cm for macro photography. The built-in Wi-Fi also lets users transfer images to smart devices such as smartphones and tablets easily.


As the successor to the COOLPIX P7700, the COOLPIX P7800 offers great expandability with full-scale manual shooting functions available with DSLR cameras. The electronic viewfinder (EVR) utilizes a new, high-resolution, 921,000-dot (approx.) VGA LCD with diopter adjustment function and frame coverage of 100%, as well as a 3-inch vari-angle TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle for which the RGBW system has been adopted.

In addition to a 1/1.7-inch backside illumination CMOS sensor and a 7.1x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, recording frame rates (when recording Full HD movies) can be set to switch automatically between 30 and 25fps depending upon the video output setting (NTSC/PAL) specified with the camera.

Support for system expansion has also been increased to enable more varied forms of imaging expression with a broad range of scenes with compatibility for even more accessories, including external Speedlights, the GPS Unit, and the Wireless Mobile Adapter WU-1a, Wireless Remote Controllers WR-R10/WR-T10, and compact LED Light T116 (all accessories sold separately).
