Proving that there ain't no party like an S Club party, Nikon has come out all cameras blazing with a range of new Coolpix S-series compacts following the souped-up P6000. The S610 and S610c, S710 and S560 will hurl their shiny metal bodies on to the consumer electronics dancefloor over the two next months.
They come in a range of colours and specifications. First up is the 10-megapixel Coolpix S610. It boasts a 4x zoom and 76mm (3-inch) screen, with lens-shifting image stabilisation.
Nikon has added a new automatic scene selector, which checks out conditions and selects the appropriate scene mode. You also get an active child mode, which automatically keeps moving subjects in sharp focus. And there's that smile mode nonsense, but the less said about that the better, in our opinion.
The Coolpix S610 will be available straight after the Bank Holiday on 29 August for somewhere in the region of £250. Don't stop movin' through the photos to reach the other snappers in this latest tranche -- high-powered or mini-sized, long zooms and even a ginormo touchscreen. -Rich Trenholm
