Fits in the palm of your hand
At a slim 17.5mm and weighing a mere 100g, the S02 is one of the most compact cameras around. Perfect to slip into a pocket or bag, you can take it everywhere you go and never miss a photo opportunity again.
With 13.2 Megapixels and stunning Full (1080p) HD video recording the COOLPIX SO2 puts exceptional imaging power in your hands.
Contemporary & stylish design
Created with aesthetics as well as practical functionality in mind, the SO2 combines a smooth streamlined profile with a durable, highly polished stainless steel finish.
Easy to use GUI (Graphic User Interface)
Exceptional results are a breeze. The COOLPIX S02 sports a large 6.7 cm (2.7 inch) approx. 230k-dot TFT LCD touch screen enhanced by a simple four-segment menu; or customise it to one touch for your favourite settings. The anti-reflective monitor makes shooting and viewing images a joy.
A stylish companion
Size, performance, practicality and style – no matter which way you look at it, the COOLPIX S02 is a winner. Every aspect has been carefully thought out, from materials through to colours and finish. It’s available in blue, white or silver with a mirror-like finish and controls have also been reduced to the minimum adding to its streamlined look.
Capture the beauty of the night
The S02 is not only stylish enough for an evening out, it’s an exceptional performer, especially in low light. An advanced CMOS delivers incredible noise-reduction and high sensitivity of up to ISO1600. Night shots come alive, thanks to its Consecutive Shot Combining Technology.
