Nikon today launched two new cameras in its COOLPIX range. These two new camera’s, COOLPIX P7800 and COOLPIX S02, come with HD video recording capability and CMOS sensor, targeting those interested in easy operability.


Mr. Hiroshi Takashina, Managing Director, Nikon India said “With the festive season around the corner, we are really excited to launch these cameras. The new COOLPIX P7800 and COOLPIX S02 are loaded with some great features that will enhance the user experience. The cameras are ideal for use on-the-go, offering user friendly features, high performance capabilities, intuitive operation, and enjoyable functions that can be used by every family member, from children to adults.”

COOLPIX P7800 has been designed to facilitate full scale manual photography. It is equipped with full-scale manual shooting functions available with digital SLR cameras. The CMOS censor is 1/1.7 Inch in size and is back illuminated. Another interesting feature is its Zoom functionality. You can telephoto 200 mm range of focal length with the help of 28 mm wide angle lense, covered with 7.1× optical zoom NIKKOR lens.

COOLPIX S02 is equipped with a CMOS sensor with an effective count of 13.2-million pixels and a NIKKOR lens. It is the lightest and the smallest camera in the COOLPIX series so far. The size of the LCD monitor in this new entrant is 2.7 Inches. Unlike COOLPIX P7800 this will be available in Silver, White, Pink and Blue colors.

Nikon COOLPIX P7800 will be available from October and has been priced at 26,950 INR Whereas, COOLPIX S02 is relatively cheaper at 8,450 INR and will be available by mid September this month.

  1. Sir,

    Nice and short report but looking forward to a full review / field report.
    Moreover, please improve the editing; sentences like “You can telephoto 200 mm range of focal length with the help of 28 mm wide angle lense, covered with 7.1× optical zoom NIKKOR lens.” A rather clumsy sentence, to put it charitably. You need to speak to the author, this just won’t do. It will not look good in the international domain of the Web. Secondly, it is ‘lens’, not ‘lense’.
    Please pardon the observations, but as a professional editor and long-time photo enthusiast and photo features writer, I just had to point out the flaws. Please don’t be upset, I am always available in case you need me. I have written several camera reviews and articles for APN. net (currently hibernating for reasons unknown) and you may like to check these out. The reviews of Nikon D5100. D3100, Coolpix P7700, Coolpix P510, Sony RX100, Sony H70 etc., are all my work (I own these cameras, so write from hands-on experience coupled with over 35 years of active photography and editorial expertise). Lots more where those articles came from ! I specialise in environmental portraiture and street photography.
    I am a paid professional but my charges are very reasonable.
