Nikon updated its Coolpix compact camera range today, and amidst the new professional compact and the groovy, Android-powered S800c hides the Coolpix s01 — the cutest little camera you ever did see.
When Nikon brought this out at a hands-on briefing this week, I squealed a little. You can’t help but smile when you see it.
It’s packing a 10.1-megapixel sensor, xenon flash, 3x optical zoom, a 2.5-inch touchscreen with a single home button on the back (to keep it simple) and it’s capable of shooting video in 720p.
It won’t take an SD card because there’s just no room for it. Instead, it’s got an internal memory of 7.8GB, which should me more than enough for a night out. That’s what Nikon want you to use it for: night’s out, gatherings, social occasions, etc. Places where the smartphone just won’t cut it.
It weighs only 96 grams (!!) and it’s smaller than a MacBook trackpad. It comes in red, pink, white, black or brown and goes on sale in late September for the comfortable price of around $199.
Of course, we recommend you don’t actually eat it.
