The 10x zoom camera is simple to use with a range of auto-settings, has four anti-blur functions, takes 14.2 megapixel shots and even has a dedicated HD video button, recording in 720p at 30fps.

Mark Pekelharing, Product Line Manager Consumer Products at Nikon Europe B.V comments: “All the features in this camera, from the wide angle 10x zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens to the four anti-blur reduction functions, have been brought together to give the best experience while taking pictures. It’s for those who don’t want to spend time getting to know the ins and outs of a camera but do want to get it out in all situations and take the best pictures. The portability of the slim body is essential to this, as well as its incredibly quick response time, so when you see that perfect shot on the LCD monitor, that’s what you’ll get as the final picture.”

The Nikon Coolpix S800 costs £249.99, and will be available from the middle of this month.
