While the Android-based S800c is definitely one of the more interesting compact cams we’ve seen lately, it’s not the only cam Nikon announced. Nikon also introduced three more CoolPix point-and-shoot compacts: the CoolPix P7700, S6400 and S01.
The P7700 is the latest update to their P series of premium compacts, and serves as the current king of the brand’s CoolPix line. Rocking a 1/1.7-inch backlit 12.2MP CMOS sensor and f/2.0-4.0 lens with 7.1x optical zoom, the camera replaces the P7100 on top of the ladder armed with faster continuous shooting, intelligent AF and face detection tech, and full 1080p HD video recording.
The P7700 also comes with a 3-inch touchscreen at the back, Eye-Fi card support, and an HDMI connector for playing content on an HDTV. Designed for enthusiasts, the cam also sports full PSAM modes, a manual exposure control, and an AE/FE lock.
The S6400 is a mid-range compact that, like the S800c, features a 16-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and a more powerful 12x optical zoom. Available in five colors, the cam also features Nikon’s lens-shift VR image stabilization tech, Intelligent AF, and in-cam editing using the 3-inch touchscreen.
The S01 is an ultra-compact cam designed for “style”. Available in five colors, the cam measures less than an inch thick (0.7 in) and 3.1 inches long, and is touted to be Nikon’s lightest CoolPix cam with a weight of 96 grams. Sacrificing some of the other model’s features for portability, the compact cam sports a 10.1-megapixel CCD sensor, 3x optical zoom, and a 2.5-inch touchscreen LCD wrapped inside a scratch-resistant, coated stainless steel shell.
Pricing for all three wasn’t announced, but we should know soon enough. All three cameras are due out in September.
