Nikon's Press Release
'Touch technology is one of the hottest things in consumer electronics today and our new S230 is no different,' said Bill Giordano, General Manager Marketing, COOLPIX for Nikon Inc. 'With the S230, our touch screen brings a new level of sophistication and interaction to consumers, by putting the power of the camera right at their fingertips.'
Touch controls also give users a fun, creative way to do more with their pictures. The camera comes equipped with a stylus that brings an element of personalization and expression. With the Draw Function, users can write or draw on their pictures. The S230 also has the Paint Function, which enables users to add fun frames and stamps to their pictures. The camera saves the images as copies, so the user always has access to the original picture.

The S230 incorporates Nikon's world-class NIKKOR lenses, which deliver extremely accurate and high-speed focusing, and Nikon's EXPEED digital image processing concept, which ensures high-quality pictures with stunning color and sharpness.
The S230 camera also includes new shooting modes, which Nikon has seamlessly integrated into the camera's interface. These include:
