Nikon refreshes Coolpix S-series models adding HD movie capture

When the addition of an HD movie mode is the most exciting thing about a bunch of cameras...well, let's just leave it at that.

Ho hum, ho hum. Another day closer to PMA 2010 and another bunch of camera announcements. This crop from Nikon fills in the company's "S is for style" line. I've listed out the few specs Nikon managed to scribble into its press release. I've marked the upsell features on the cameras so you can see just what $50 more is getting you. The most impressive thing with these, though, is that Nikon finally managed to put a 720p HD movie mode into three of the four models. Enjoy.
