Nikon intros flagship Coolpix P7700 for prosumers, diminutive Coolpix S01 for fashionistas

In a bid to give Canon’s PowerShot G1 X a run for its money, Nikon is pulling out every stop it knows with the introduction of the Coolpix P7700. It’s a decidedly prosumer model, priced at a buck under $ 500 and equipped with a 1/1.7-inch 12.2 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, 7.1x zoom lens (with a maximum aperture of f/2), 1080p movie mode, Lens-Shift Vibration Reduction and full manual control for those who abhor automatic captures. On the opposite side of the spectrum, there’s the $ 179 Coolpix S01 — a bantam P&S camera that’s bound to snake its way into stockings this holiday season. Specs-wise, it’s packing a 2.5-inch touchpanel, electronic VR, a 10 megapixel CCD sensor, built-in flash and a stainless exterior that measures just 3.1- x 2.1- x 0.7-inches. It’ll ship alongside the P7700 this September, but it’s on you to pick between the red, silver, white and pink color options. The full releases are embedded after the break.
