Nikon Coolpix P1 and P2

Nikon COOLPIX goes wireless

Amsterdam, September 1st, 2005. Nikon proves once more its imaging leadership with the launch of the world’s first built-in Wi-Fi digital compact cameras, the COOLPIX P1 and P2.

Wireless photography, a must have. The COOLPIX P1 and P2 – P1 is available in black and silver – empower users the freedom to shoot, transfer and print images wherever they are, in style and at an incredible speed.

The new models of Nikon’s award-winning COOLPIX family are aimed at consumers looking for the very latest camera technology to add to their portfolio of wireless devices in and outside the home. The COOLPIX P1 and P2 can be incorporated into a home-based Wi-Fi environment, simplifying image transmission to a computer or a printer without any strings attached.

The COOLPIX P1 boasts 8 Megapixels resolution – the P2 offers 5.1 Megapixels – 3.5x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens and a large 2.5-inch LCD monitor for easy viewing. The models offer instant start-up, fast continuous shooting at up to 2.5 frames per second (fps) and high quality VGA movie mode with e-VR at 30 fps generating true-colour reproduction. Sales start in September 2005 at a price of xxx Euro (P1) resp. xxx Euro (P2).*


In addition to the exciting new Wi-Fi capability, both the COOLPIX P1 and P2 also offer Aperture-priority Auto mode for greater manual control over the results. Aperture-priority allows the photographer to play around with depth of field, i.e. focusing on an object or face while the rest of the photo is blurred. Besides this there is an array of exclusive in-camera functions to be discovered including Face-priority AF, D-Lighting and Red-Eye Fix to help the users improve their images with ease.

D-Lighting brings out optimal detail and contrast by compensating for underexposed areas without affecting properly exposed ones.

Finding faces: The clever Face-priority AF employs advanced technologies to automatically locate and focus on people’s faces, ensuring great portraits with sharp focus every time.

The In-Camera Red-Eye fix corrects automatically the annoying red-eye effect that sometimes occurs in flash photography for pleasing, natural-looking results.

With an EN-EL8 rechargeable Li-ion battery, supplied with both models, the COOLPIX P1 can take approximately 180 images, while the P2 can handle 190 shots.

Martina Beckmann, Manager Communications & Marketing at Nikon Europe, said: “We live in an increasingly wireless world and we are proud to be leading the Wi-Fi revolution on the digital camera platform with these pioneering COOLPIX P1 and P2 models.”
