Improving upon the design of its predeccssor, the S6500 released back in February, this latest model adds in an adjustable LCD screen, helping you snap a better shot, no matter what the angle.

There’s also now gesture controls added to the camera, allowing you to shoot stills and video and control zoom levels with a swipe of the hand when using self portrait mode.

Filters and effects can be added to pictures after they’re shot from within the camera too using Nikon’s Quick Effect mode. 30 different styles can be applied, alongside 18 scene shooting modes, an Easy Panorama function and blur and vibration reduction.

Launching in September and available in white, black, red and purple colours, expect to pay £199.99 when it hits UK stores.
