While we usually showcase the most delectable Leica’s and perhaps the occasional bigboy Nikon or Canon, Nikon has recently introduced their smallest compact digital camera, the ‘Coolpix s01’ and it’s certainly worth offering a first glimpse here. Built using a 1/3” type CCD sensor providing 10.1 megapixels of resolution, weighing only 96 grams, the device measures 77 x 51 x 17mm in size (3.1 x 2.1 x 0.7″).
In order to dramatically reduce size, Nikon has chosen to use a built-in battery system and eliminate its SD memory slot by replacing it with 7.3 GB of internal memory for a slim and minimally cluttered package. By removing all dials and controls, a 2.5″ interactive swipe touch-screen display replaces the previous layout for an easy and intutive user experience.
