This week the folks at Nikon are bringing on the heat with not just an Android-powered smart camera, but two more pocket cameras as well. With the Coolpix P7700 you’ll find that a $499 camera can bring on a beastly set of specifications starting with a massive 1/1.7-inch 12.2 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor. The Coolpix S01, on the other hand, will run just $179 for a 10 megapixel CCD sensor-toting camera with a 2.5-inch touchscreen interface.
The Coolpix P7700 is what Nikon is bringing on to fight with the Canon PowerShot G1 X for certain, complete with an adjustable display that flips wherever you need it to, a 7.1x zoom lens, and their own Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction. This unit also has manual controls galore, of course, and the unit is made to be a perfect blend of high-end specifications matched with a simple to use interface.
The Nikon Coolpix S01 brings on an even simpler interface to match its slightly lower-end specifications. It’s certainly not the least powerful camera on the planet with its 10 megapixel CCD sensor and built-in flash, but at just $179 you’ll find yourself unable to resist when you’ve got a couple of bills in your pocket this winter season. You’ve got electronic VR, a 3.1 x 2.1 x 0.7-inch body, and a collection of color choices. You can pick up red, silver, white and pink later this year.
