Nikon just announced the Coolpix S510 and S700, two new ultracompact digital cameras.

Nikon gives its style-minded Coolpix S-series its highest resolution yet with the Coolpix S700. This sleek camera packs a 12-megapixel sensor into its 0.9-inch-thick brushed aluminum body. The S700 also features a 37 to 111mm-equivalent f/2.8-5.4 Nikkor lens, mechanical image stabilization, a 2.7-inch TFT LCD screen and a sensitivity range of ISO 64 to 3200. Like the majority of Nikon's other newly announced cameras, the S700 uses Nikon's new Expeed image processor, which the company claims improves processing speed and color reproduction.

The Coolpix S510 might not look quite as impressive as the S700, but it is shaping up to be a solid follow-up to the Coolpix S500. Like its predecessor, the 8-megapixel S510 distinguishes itself with its slender stainless steel body. It uses a 35 to 105mm-equivalent f/2.8-4.7 lens, a 2.5-inch LCD screen, and it incorporates the same Expeed image processor and optical image stabilization as the S700.

Both the Nikon Coolpix S510 and S700 hit stores this September. The S510 will be available for around $300, and the S700 will have a suggested retail price of $380.
