Slimline Nikon Coolpix S8000 launches with 10x zoom

Nikon has launched what it says is the world's slimmest wide angle 10x zoom camera, the Coolpix S8000.

Measuring in at 27.3mm thin, the S8000 offers 14.2 megapixels, a fast start-up time and what Nikon claims is a DSLR class AF system.

With a 3-inch LCD display, it also boasts a dedicated video button for recording 720p movies with stereo sound at 30 frames per second.
 
Other features include an "advanced" flash control system, in-camera image adjusting and lens-shift "Vibration Reduction".

The Coolpix S8000 will be available in black, brown and champagne silver with an aluminium finish with a rubber coating for £249.99 in mid-Feb.
