New releases led by Raw shooting and GPS enabled P6000

Nikon has unveiled its Autumn releases under the Coolpix moniker. The releases come in the shape of the Raw shooting and GPS enabled P6000, the 3.5in touch-screen featuring S60, and four other additions to the stylish ?S? series.

The headline grabber is, no doubt, the P6000. Featuring a 13.5 megapixles and a 4x wide-angle optical zoom (28-112mm equivalent), the P6000 is Nikon’s first ever camera to feature built-in GPS support, attaching a geotag to each image captured.

The model also features the ability to shoot in Raw format, full manual control and advanced Nikon features such as ?D-Lighting?, meaning it?s sure to be a hit with advanced compact fans.

Also featuring in the announcement is the 10MP S60. Grabbing the attention on this new introduction is the 3.5in wide-screen LCD, complete with touch-panel control. The model also features all Nikon?s main compact-based imaging innovations, such as image sensor vibration reduction, face-priority AF and its exclusive EXPEED image processing system.

Completing the Autumn line up are a quartet of S series Coolpix compacts ? the S610, S610c, S710 and S560.

Both the S610 and S610c boast 10MP and 3in TFT screens, with the differentiating factor being that the S610c comes complete with wireless LAN connectivity, making uploading images to the web easier than ever.

The Coolpix S710 comes complete with a whopping 14.5 effective megapixels, 3.6x optical zoom covering and wide-angle of 28mm equivalent, and features full manual control, a 3in LCD and maximum ISO of 12800 (in reduced megapixel mode). The range is completed by the S560 ? directly aimed at the ?attractive price? end of the market, and features 10MP, 5x optical zoom and 2.7in LCD.

With regards to prices and availability, the S610 and S560 will debut on the 29th August at £249.99 and £179.99 respectively, the S710 and P6000 will follow on 12th September at £299.99 and £429.99, with the S60 completing the launch on 19th September at £299.99 (all RRPs).
