The new "Capture more. Feel more." brand site will feature a variety of contents and visuals representative of the "Capture more. Feel more." tagline used throughout the world to describe the value and concept behind COOLPIX-series digital cameras. Not only will the site introduce the COOLPIX brand message, but it will also offer integrated collaboration with Flickr and Twitter, allowing users throughout the world to experience and share the COOLPIX world view themselves.

Throughout its long history of developing and utilizing optical and other advanced technologies for use in the development and manufacture of products and services, Nikon has taken its role in the capture of special moments, regardless of the age or situation, very seriously. Nikon will continue to offer the means to record and share the moments that are special to individuals through flexible products and services for all users of digital cameras.

History of the COOLPIX series

The history of the COOLPIX series began in 1997 with the COOLPIX 100. The camera was slim enough to fit in a jacket pocket and was equipped with an innovative new PC card function that allowed the camera body itself to be connected directly to a computer for data transfer. Nikon has continued to lead the digital camera industry since then by developing and releasing models with revolutionary new features. The COOLPIX 900, released in 1998, offered a swivel design that allowed the lens portion to be rotated up to 270°. In 2005, Nikon released the COOLPIX 5900/7600/7900 with the revolutionary Face-priority AF (autofocus) function that automatically recognized faces with autofocusing and the COOLPIX P1, the world's first camera equipped with a wireless LAN communication function for transferring images over a wireless network. The COOLPIX S500, released in 2007, had the world's most compact body and also offered the fastest power-up and release time lag (at the time), and the COOLPIX S1000pj, released in 2009, was the world's first camera to be equipped with a compact projector.
With a total of 100 COOLPIX models released, Nikon continues its tradition of innovation in 2010 with the release of the COOLPIX S1100pj, the second COOLPIX camera to be equipped with a built-in projector, and the COOLPIX S5100 with a number of functions that enable the capture of beautiful nighttime shots. The COOLPIX brand continues to offer increases in basic camera performance as well as new and advanced digital technologies for new value and user benefits.
