London, UK, 1st Feb 2012 - Nikon today announces two new high zoom compact cameras that are perfect for travel, sports events, music concerts and more. The slimline COOLPIX S9300 captures detail, thanks to a NIKKOR 18x optical zoom lens, a back-illuminated 16-megapixel CMOS image sensor, lens-shift vibration reduction, Full HD movie recording, 7.5 cm (3.0-in.) LCD monitor and built-in GPS. The colourful COOLPIX S6300 packs in a NIKKOR 10x optical zoom lens, a back-illuminated 16-megapixel CMOS image sensor, lens-shift vibration reduction and Full HD movie recording.

“The COOLPIX S9300 and S6300 are high performance, stylish cameras that are ideal for capturing your adventures when you’re on the move,” comments James Loader, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon UK. “Whether shooting stills or Full HD video, these new super-zoom COOLPIX cameras will capture the scene in vivid detail and the added features such as Auto HDR mode and 3D capability are bound to impress creative photographers.”

Class-leading zoom: the COOLPIX S9300
Behind the slimline (30.6mm at its widest part) body of the COOLPIX S9300 lays a wealth of cutting-edge technology that sets this 16-megapixel camera apart. Perfect for use in any situation, its NIKKOR 18x lens (25 – 450 mm coverage) captures distant action or candid close-ups with ease. Meanwhile, lens-shift vibration reduction enables sharp results and a steady image on the 3” high resolution (921k dot) LCD screen with clear colour technology, making it easy to frame shots.
An innovative recording function lets budding movie makers shoot film clips, pause and then continue filming, and the camera will create one movie file for smooth playback. Easy Panorama function lets you pan vertically or horizontally to create dynamic panoramas. Built-in GPS capability lets you tag your photos at any time, or track your route on the move.

The COOLPIX S9300 comes in four colours: Red, silver, black, and blue.

Bright and beautiful: the COOLPIX S6300 high zoom
Offering the perfect blend of sophisticated style and high-tech brilliance, the COOLPIX S6300 is the chic choice for those who want a camera that is easy to use and ideal to carry round. With a distinctive portable design it is perfect for taking anywhere. The NIKKOR 10x optical zoom captures unforgettable moments with ease, from wide-angle group shots to stunning close-ups, and the backlit CMOS image sensor delivers brilliant detail and clarity, even in low light.

For those who want to have fun with their photography, the COOLPIX S6300 comes equipped with 3D shooting capability. This dedicated 3D shooting mode combines two images taken from different positions to create a 3D image that can be played back on 3D-capable TVs and computers. Fun in-camera filter effects add flair, with options such as Selective Colour, which turns your images monochrome and adds a splash of colour to an object of your choice.

When the action warrants capturing more than a moment, the COOLPIX S6300 switches to Full HD (1080p) movie recording at the touch of a button, and 19 scene modes automatically optimise the camera settings for popular styles, effects and locations.

The COOLPIX S6300 comes in three colours: Black, red, and blue.
