Nikon: a company that looks at its laurels and deems them to be uncomfortable for resting.

So it has carried on with releasing the snappers with the new S60, a 10MP camera with a 3.5 inch touch screen viewing and control panel.

It feature a Nikkor five times zoom lens for decent pics, with Vibration Reduction capability and high ISO sensitivity.

Which scene do I want?

It aslso has all the necessary feature-gubbins, such as Scene Auto Selector, enhanced Face Recognition, Smile Timer with blink detection, time-lapse movies, in-camera retouch and HDMI output for outputting to HDMI sources…obviously.

The S60 also uses Nikon's Exspeed processing system, originally designed for D-SLRs, for quick production of snaps.

The 3.5 inch screen allows you to control nearly all the camera' functions by touch alone, and the anti-glare coating allows up to 160 degree viewing, for all those vital moments when you need to stand next to your camera rather than behind it.
