Nikon expanding Coolpix family with three new members

Nikon Coolpix S2500

Camera manufacturers really ought to get more inventive while naming their creations. We have the FinePix S2500HD from Fujifilm and then the Coolpix S2500 from Nikon. The last mentioned will be joining Nikon UK’s Coolpix L23 and Coolpix L120 digital camera offerings for photography enthusiasts.

The S2500 uses a Nikkkor 4x wide-angle zoom lens and a 12MP image sensor for detailed image capturing. Nikon’s Smart Portrait system, tracking AF, scene modes and a 2.7” LCD all fit into an aluminum frame as thin as 20mm. The camera comes drenched in shades of black, silver, pink or red and also includes anti-blur technology which fights blurred photos in four different ways.

“The new line-up has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for your first camera, or for something more advanced. Whichever you choose, you can be assured that all of these cameras provide the quality that Nikon is known for to help produce the best images as easily as possible,” explained Sander van Velzen, Product Manager for Consumer Products, Nikon Europe.

The Coolpix L23 is equipped with a 10.1MP CCD image sensor and a 5x wide-angle zoom lens. Powered by AA batteries, captured content can be played back on the 2.7” LCD and there are comfortably large buttons along with dedicated Shooting and Playback mode controls. Played out in hues of blue, red, black, pink or silver, this snapper is attributed with motion detection, vibration reduction and much more.

A wide angle 21x zoom Nikkor lens offering 25mm wide-angle to 525mm super-telephoto coverage and a 14.1MP CCD image sensor are integrated into the Coolpix L23. The camera is capable of 720p HD video recording in stereo sound and its HDMI mini connector lets users share captured content on the home TV. Running on AA batteries, the device is colored in black or red and even sports a 3” high-resolution LCD.

The pricing details for these Coolpix newbies are rather sketchy for now. The cameras are loaded with ViewNX 2 software and employ Nikon’s Expeed C2 image processing system. What’s more, users also get to back up images with the company’s Picturetown, free online digital photo storage and sharing service.
