Take it everywhere

The smallest COOLPIX camera ever

Imagine an easy to use camera that takes brilliant photos and HD movies and fits your pocket as well as it fits your lifestyle. You'll grab the COOLPIX S01 every time you go out, and you'll create more memories than ever before. Just slip it in your pocket or purse and hit the road. When the moment strikes, pull it out, catch the action and then show it off, (along with the beautiful photos or videos you just shot).

Create gorgeous memories

10.1 MP, 3x optical zoom, EXPEED C2 and more

Don't let its size fool you—the COOLPIX S01 captures stunning Nikon-quality photos and HD (720p) videos. Its 3x optical Zoom-NIKKOR glass lens lets you zoom in for a flattering portrait, then out for a playful group shot; and it delivers sharp, bright images to a 10.1 megapixel CCD sensor. Nikon's exclusive EXPEED C2 processing engine provides fast operation, onboard intelligence and creative in-camera effects. Your photos and HD movies will be as beautiful as your camera.

Let the camera do the thinking

Spend more time enjoying the moment and less time worrying about camera settings. The COOLPIX S01 detects what you're shooting and automatically selects the best mode for you—Portrait, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Close-up or Backlighting. Your shots will look great—and you can take all the credit.

Never miss a moment

When a special moment happens, your camera should be ready. The COOLPIX S01 quickly turns on, autofocuses and fires. With a touch of the screen, you can start recording HD (720p) videos with sound. You'll never be stuck fussing with your camera while the action passes you by.

Great for kids too! My Mom recently bought one of these (refurbished) for my 3 year old and I immediately thought it would be way too advanced for her. To my pleasant surprise it is not! It is very user friendly and just the right size for her hands. It even survived a couple drops on the floor. She manages to take some great pics with this little camera and I keep finding impressive features on this little thing. If you're looking for a camera for a young user, I highly suggest considering this one. You'll get some great features and probably better pictures at a price that is close to the cost of the "children's" cameras currently on the market. I think I want a second one for myself!

The Most Deliciously Simple, Fun, Cool Camera in the world This is a WOW camera in the red. You will have to decide if you want to take a picture or eat the camera. Luscious. GREAT pictures. I have a D200 for planned photos, a Rollei 6008-AF for people and animals, and then there is this super little camera that fits in my pocket, is easy to use, intimidates no one, and does a great job for spontaneous in-the-moment pictures. I ADORE this camera. I bought 8-9 of them for best buds at Xmas time. Everyone was thrilled and now uses it in place of bigger cameras or their cell phone. For people who use their cell phones for photos, this baby will seduce you. It does NOT take an internal batteries . Do NOT be conned into thinking it needs one. Charge at your computer or wall charger. If I was wealthy I would buy 100's of these and give them to kids as an intro to photo creativity and just plain fun. June 19, 2014
Great Little Camera For the money this camera preforms really well. It is nice and small which makes carrying it around a breeze. I been using it daily for snapping shots on job sites. January 14, 2014
It has a long lasting memory. Handy, fancey and easy to uses. I love it I recommond to any one. I love it! love love it!. April 19, 2013
Easy, Fun, Cute to Boot! I wanted this camera in the first place because it was cute. Really cute. The picture on the web does not do it justice. Plus, mine came with a leather case and strap. I got the tomato red one. So, for its looks alone I wanted it. After I got it, I fell in love with its ease of use. You don't even need instructions to get started although it helps for some of the features and I recommend you download the manual; it's easy reading and the instructions are clear. I am not an accomplished photographer but the pictures I've taken so far have been more than satisfactory, in fact, they're really good. And it fits in that little slot inside my purse perfectly. I take it with me every day now and get pictures I never would have gotten before owning it. I love it! April 2, 2013
