Along with COOLPIX P7800, Nikon just announced Coolpix S02 – a tiny metal-bodied 13MP compact camera with a smartphone-sized CMOS sensor and 2.7-inch touch-sensitive LCD. The S02 does not accept memory cards, but comes with 7.3GB of built-in storage. The entire package, built around a 3x (30-90mm equiv) zoom lens is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Apart from the new sensor, the most notable improvement compared to the S01 is the addition of 1080p video. Curiously, for a camera so clearly aimed at ‘hip’ and ‘stylish’ people, the S02 does not feature any connectivity options, either built-in or via optional accessories.
