Building upon the well-received COOLPIX S9100 released in the spring of 2011, Nikon has created two new high-power zoom models with 18x optical zoom NIKKOR lenses which utilise thin optics, as well as greatly enhancing the technology offered by these cameras. These models come with new technology ranging from a backside illumination CMOS image sensor to a lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) system that helps capture beautiful photos in dim conditions; a new movie function allows users to save and play back movies, which includes the recording of multiple scenes that can be saved as a single file. What's more, users can also choose COOLPIX S9300 which also offers a built-in GPS function.

1. Thin 18x Optical Zoom NIKKOR Lens

While featuring a high-performance thin 18x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a wide range of angles of view from wide-angle 25 mm to super-telephoto 450 mm (both equivalent in 35-mm [135] format), these cameras also boast compact and slim bodies for superior portability. Perfect for taking a wide variety of images, users can take these cameras anywhere and use the powerful zoom lens at anytime.

2. The Perfect Night Shot

Equipped with a backside illumination CMOS image sensor with an effective 16.0-million pixel count, the noise that occurs with shooting at high sensitivities is effectively suppressed. Along with a newly adopted lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function, these cameras effectively reduce blur, even when shooting indoors or in dark places – images are always clear and sharp.

The backside illumination CMOS sensor features three modes which enhance image quality when shooting at high sensitivities. This is achieved through the capture of multiple shots at high speed in quick succession, which are then combined and recorded as a single image. The three modes are: Night Portrait, Backlighting and Night Landscape scene modes.

Night Portrait Mode
Several shots are captured to reduce blur and noise in the background, and one shot using the flash is captured to ensure a bright portrait subject. These shots are then combined in a single photo with optimal exposure throughout. The portrait subject is brightly lit while the ambience of the background is preserved; which makes taking that perfect photo at a dark amusement park or a dimly lit indoor party with friends simple.

Backlighting Mode
When the HDR (high dynamic range) setting is enabled for shooting high-contrast scenes, the camera captures multiple shots in quick succession and combines them into a single photo. There is no loss of detail in terms of highlights or shadows, allowing for a broader range of tones.

Night Landscape Mode
In this mode, a series of images is captured and then combined into a single image in which blur and noise have been suppressed. Users can instantly capture beautiful night landscapes in the spur of the moment via hand-held shooting with no prior preparation.

3. Record Pristine Full-HD Movies With Stereo Sound

Storing those fantastic memories is easy now with this movie function that boasts stereo sound and superior picture quality; as well as a new function that saves multiple scenes as a single file.

Users can now record multiple movie scenes which will ultimately appear as a single file and appear as a series with playback. Similar to these models' predecessors, full-HD movies feature stereo sound and a frame size of 1920 x 1080 pixels; optical zoom can be used during movie recording as well. What's more, dramatic movies recorded using the HS Movie function can be played back in slow motion at 1/2 or 1/4 the normal playback speed, or can be sped up to twice the normal playback speed for a comical effect. With this broad range of movie recording functions, it will be easy to record movies and enjoy them in all-new ways. 

4. Ultra-Crisp Three-Inch TFT LCD Monitor

These cameras are both equipped with a three-inch, approximately 921k-dot, wide-viewing angle Clear Colour Display TFT LCD monitor that offers clear and crisp display. With the large LCD monitor brighter, shooting, viewing images and applying settings are easy under sunny skies or in rooms where light is reflected off the monitor. In addition, with a broad colour gamut equivalent to the sRGB colour space, even the finest details and textures are clearly reproduced in photos.

5. GPS, Electronic Compass, Log Function, and Point-of-Interest Display (COOLPIX S9300 only)

The high-performance GPS and electronic compass acquire and record position information automatically, which can then be viewed via the camera's monitor. The S9300 also offers a log function that tracks and records position information even while the camera is off. Along with point-of-interest (POI) data (approx. 1,700,000 locations) that can be used to record and display location names, these features offer active outdoor users and frequent travellers an all-new experience, as they can track their vacation route per say and save the information easily in a file.

1. Wide-Angle Multi-Focal Length 10x Optical Zoom NIKKOR Lens

Equipped with a NIKKOR lens that covers a range of focal lengths beginning at the wide-angle 25 mm (equivalent in 35-mm [135] format) up through to a 10x optical zoom, COOLPIX S6300 captures beautiful photography in a wide variety of settings; from wide-angle landscape shots to close-ups of people's expressions from a distance.

2. The Perfect Shot In Dark Or Dimly Lit Surroundings

Equipped with a backside illumination CMOS image sensor with an effective 16.0-million pixel count, the noise that occurs with shooting at high sensitivities is effectively suppressed for beautiful images in less than optimal settings. Along with an all-new lens-shift vibration reduction (VR) function, the superior camera shake compensation precision reduces blur caused by camera shake, allowing users to capture beautiful photos even when the lens is zoomed in.

3. A Slim And Stylish Body

The narrowing of the camera's body at the four corners and top has resulted in one of the smallest designs in the 10x optical zoom class. In addition to superior portability, the combination of a rounded form with ridged lines and a metallic feel, has resulted in an elegant and stylish design.

4. Full-HD Movies With A Simple Press Of A Button

Utilising the newly integrated movie-record button, users can now create full-HD movies with stereo sound and superior picture quality with the press of a button. An optical zoom which can be used during the movie recording process and a new function that combines multiple recorded clips into a single file have been added.

5. Numerous Shooting and Editing Functions – 3D Photography, Special Effects, Filter Effects, and Easy Panorama

Using the S6300, users can add a full range of artistic effects and enjoy images in all-new ways. These include 3D Photography with which users simply move the camera horizontally to take a 3D photo, after pressing the shutter-release button; Special Effects with which still images and movies can be recorded with hue and contrast effects applied from the shooting menu; Filter Effects for easy editing of photos; and Easy Panorama for capturing horizontal or vertical panorama photos.

Using a touch screen will have never felt so natural with the S4300's and S4200's large and pristine three-inch, approximately 460k-dot HVGA LCD touch panel. With a flatter surface, the monitor is level with the camera cover for simpler touch operation. A highly sensitive touch screen and less sticky surface allows for faster operations. What's more, with the new graphical user interface (GUI), frequently used controls are always displayed for user convenience.

4. Fun Shooting With Scene Auto Selector Mode – Smart Portrait, Subject Tracking and Pet Portrait Mode

COOLPIX S4300, S4200, S3300 and S3200 make taking pictures a fun-filled experience with a variety of shooting functions that respond to any scene, including the Scene Auto Selector mode. This automatic function identifies the scene and applies the appropriate scene mode: Smart Portrait mode, which automatically detects human smiles and applies effects for more beautiful skin tones; Subject Tracking, which automatically tracks moving subjects such as children or animals; and Pet Portrait mode, which automatically detects and focuses on the faces of dogs or cats when they look directly at the camera.

5. Vast Array Of Colours

With a huge selection of different camera colours, , users can choose the colour that matches their style from the extensive lineup. In addition to the basic and brighter choices, Nikon is introducing two new colours especially for COOLPIX S4300 and S3300- a subtle and elegant plum, and a vivid blue.
