P7700 new high-end camera, S01 smallest Coolpix ever

In addition to the Android-powered S800c point-and-shoot camera, Nikon also announced three other cameras in the Coolpix line today. The P7700 is the newest high-end flagship model for the Coolpix line, while the consumer-oriented 16MP S6400 is a basic point-and-shoot camera available in several different colors, and the smallest and lightest Coolpix ever has been announced -- the S01.

The Coolpix P7700 supports full-scale manual photography, and replaces the P7100. The new camera features faster continuous shooting, and is equipped with a 1/1.7 inch backside-illuminated 12.2MP CMOS sensor, and a Nikkor lens with a 7.1x optical zoom, covering a range of focal lengths from 28mm to 200mm with a maximum aperture of f/2-4.

The S6400 sports a 16MP backside-illuminated CMOS sensor, and is equipped with a 12x optical zoom Nikkor lens with a focal length of 25 mm to 300mm, in a compact body. The LCD features a touch interface, allowing for rapid change of settings on the camera. A key feature of the S6400 is Target Finding, in which the user points the camera at a subject and the the camera automatically identifies and focuses on the subject, even if the object is in motion.

NIkon's S01 -- at three inches wide, two inches high, and 0.677 inches deep -- is the smallest camera Nikon has ever made in the Coolpix line. The minuscule camera still manages to include a 10.1MP CCD image sensor, and a 3x optical zoom Nikkor lens with a 29mm to 87mm focal length. A 2.5-inch touch screen also allows for quick changing of phone settings, similar to the S6400.

All three cameras will be available in September. No pricing has been announced.
