As a camera, the S01 offers a 10.1-megapixel CCD image sensor, a 3x wide angle optical zoom, and 720p HD video recording. Not the best of the best, but at this price and size, it’s pretty hard to beat.

  • 7.3GB of built in memory, no card slot.

The COOLPIX S01 sports a MSRP of $179.95, and is available in Red, White, Silver and Pink.

Of course, I chose the pink, I am a girly girl after all☺

I wanted something that I could just throw in my purse or in my pocket and have it on me at all times. You might ask…why not just buy a smart phone? Well, I am not ready to spend that chunk of change at this point. I was able to purchase this cutie for only $99.00, and that is A LOT less than the smart phones and their data plans.There are plenty of other options for ultra-compact cameras with far better image quality, but none of them will be quite this compact!! This was my biggest factor in purchasing this camera.

I am looking forward to having a little fun with my new toy. Adults every now and then need to play too right?

What is your opinion of this compact camera?

Have a great weekend.

  1. What a wonderful little camera! I agree with you about smart phones – they are overpriced, and the picture taking ability on them is never as good as on a real camera.

    Thanks for coming by always good to have you visit ^_^

  4. Thanks for that suggestion… I’ll have to watch for one after I finish paying for Wedding stuff for my daughter… ugh…

  5. Look tempting for me to get one of that. Unfortunately, I bought my Fujifilm JX three months ago (also pink!) and I don’t think I am willing to buy new one yet. Love that it’s touchscreen.

  6. That’s a great buy! I’m not ready to pay for a smart phone either. I was, however, ready to upgrade from my little Kodak Easy Share so my husband bought me a Nikon P510 Coolpix. Yep. It’s cool alright 🙂 So far, I am loving it! I’ve never had such a nice camera and I know I will gets lots of use out of it. So glad you had a great Christmas. I hope you have a terrific New Year!

  7. Oh my, I want this girly girl pink camera so bad! I have a big Nikon D40 and would love a small little camera that you can carry on you at all times, and this pink one would do it! Love it, love it! Hopefully it will be under the Christmas tree for me next year! 🙂

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
