Nikon Adds Coolpix S9, Coolpix S10, and Coolpix S7c to "Style" Line
by Ben Stafford -  8/24/2006

Nikon has announced three new cameras in their "Style" line of digital cameras.  The Nikon Coolpix S9 resembles the S5 and S6 models introduced earlier this year with the slim wave design.  The Nikon Coolpix S10 has the same swivel body as the S4 model from last year - they have to make room for the lens somehow.  The Nikon Coolpix S7c has the slim wave design, but features WiFi, a 3 inch screen, and it's not silver.

The Nikon Coolpix S9 features a slim body, 6 megapixels, 3x optical zoom, and 2.5 inch LCD.  It will be available in September for $249.  The Nikon Coolpix S10 features 6 megapixels, 10x optical zoom with Vibration Reduction, and 2.5 inch LCD.  The S10 will available in September for $399.  The Nikon Coolpix S7c is features 7.1 megapixels, 3 inch LCD, and a 3x optical zoom with Vibration Reduction.  It will also be available in September, but for $349

All of the new S series cameras have Nikon's "In-camera Innovations", which are easy to access with the "One-Touch Portrait Button".  They include:

The really distinctive thing about the S7c, besides the huge 3 inch screen and nice styling, is that it's WiFi enabled.  When you buy the camera, you get a year long subscription to T-Mobile WiFi Hotspot service to let you use the new "Coolpix Connect" feature (as well as transfer images wirelessly to your computer).  Once in a hotspot (it doesn't have to be a T-Mobile hotspot), you can email your pictures directly to someone using Coolpix Connect.  The images are actually uploaded to a Coolpix Connect server and your recipients are notified to go check out the images.  You can upload 50MB of images to the server and images will stay there up to 2 weeks.
