1 Among digital cameras with interchangeable lenses available as of April 2, 2015. Statement based on Nikon research.
The Nikon 1 S2 is a model that allows even those new to interchangeable-lens cameras to capture beautiful images with simple operation. A colorful, minimalistic design has been adopted for the cameras, which are available in four color options including yellow. Lenses sold as part of the lens kits are of the same color as the camera body. This color coordination provides an integrated look despite the use of interchangeable lenses.
The COOLPIX S6900 is a compact digital camera equipped with a number of features that allow users to enjoy taking self-portraits. Among these are a vari-angle LCD monitor that supports shooting from a variety of angles, a built-in camera stand, and a front shutter-release button. The sleek compact camera also offers superior operation and is equipped with a variety of functions, including Gesture Control that enables remote control using the palm of the hand, and Glamour mode, which allows users to preview effects in the monitor during shooting.
The Red Dot Award: Product Design is a world-class award presented to products released over the past two years that exhibit superiority in terms of a total of nine aspects, including innovation, functionality, ergonomics, ecology, and durability.
