Nikon Coolpix S02 vs S01, first thoughts (more in the same size package) and links

The new Nikon Coolpix S02 is the replacement of the Nikon Coolpix S01. As many of the Coolpix upgrades there isn't that much news from edition to edition. The same is true with the Nikon Coolpix S02.

The Nikon Coolpix S02 have gotten a new sensor, so now the sensor is 13 megapixel, where it was only 10 megapixel in the Nikon Coolpix S01. And the picture quality has most likely also gotten a small upgrade.

The surprising thing is that Nikon has managed to put a larger LCD screen on the back of the Nikon Coolpix S02, and it is still almost the same size and weight as the previous version.

The Nikon Coolpix S01 is rated 65 out of 100 on Nikon Index based on 2 reviews, so the new version really has something to improve. Otherwise you might just be better of with nice smart phone camera.

The price difference is at the moment huge. The Nikon Coolpix S01 can be gotten for around $90 and the new Nikon Coolpix S02 is priced at about $175, so it is about twice as expensive. The reason behind this huge price difference is that Nikon is trying to sell the last cameras in stock as it goes out of production.

If you want one of these cameras just go for the old version. The price difference don't justify the small advantages in features.
