Nikon S2 keeps it simple for the Instagram generation

by Amy Davies |
www.techradar.com
It can shoot ten raw format images at up to 20fps with continuous autofocus, or an incredible 60fps with focus fixed at the first frame.
Unlike the recently announced Nikon V3, it is not touch sensitive however.
There is a very good chance that the new S2 camera will not be introduced in the US market (just like the J4).
Nikon’s Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera could be announced at CES 2011.
