Along with the new S9300 and S9200, Nikon also adds the CoolPix S6300 to its S-series. The S6300 is also a compact digital camera with a long zoom range featuring a 10x optical zoom NIKKOR lens with 25mm wide angle, just like its predecessor S6200. The camera has a stylish design with a rounded form and metallic feel. It packs a 16 Megapixel backside illumination CMOS image sensor, EXPEED C2 image processor and a 2.7-inch LCD display.
The new S6300 supports Full HD 1080p video recording with a dedicated movie-record button and users can apply optical zoom during movie recording. The camera comes with 19 optimized scene modes and scene auto selector. Special effects including Soft, High key, Low key, Nostalgic sepia, Selective color, or High-contrast monochrome can be used when you take pictures or movies, and there are in-camera filter effects for you to add creative touch to images already taken. You can also use the 3D Photography function to take 3D photos by pressing the shutter-release button and then moves the camera horizontally, and Easy Panorama for capturing horizontal or vertical panorama photos.
Coming February, the Nikon CoolPix S6300 will be available for $199.95 in red, black, silver, and blue. Champagne and pink color options will be released in other markets.
