The Coolpix S02 also includes consumer-oriented features like Scene Auto Selector Mode, which automatically chooses the right scene mode based on the subject or location--such as portrait, landscape, night portrait, night landscape, close-up, and backlighting. The Coolpix S02 also now includes a night scene mode for better low-light shots and backlit scene HDR for improved image quality in bright light. Special effects including Mirror, Sepia, High Contrast Monochrome, High Key, and Low Key can help run-of-the-mill shots look special.
The Nikon Coolpix S02 will be available in silver, white, pink, and blue at the end of September or early October for $180, the same price as the previous model at launch.
LD-1000 LED Movie Light
To top off the camera updates, Nikon has introduced the LD-1000 LED Movie Light, a new optional accessory for the Nikon 1 and Coolpix lines.
It features a built-in diffusion panel to facilitate even exposures. The bracket can be removed, allowing the light to be held by hand for better control over the lighting angle.
This device emits light continuously, rather than immediately like a camera flash, so its effect can be monitored via the live view in real time.
The Nikon LD-1000 LED Movie Light will be available in October in black and white for $100.
