    Wow, that’s an ugly camera.

  • HibikiRush

    This is so uninteresting. Is Nikon just throwing in the towel when it comes to mirrorless? It’s like zero inspiration went into the design of this turd.

    • UnknownTransit

      People who’s going to buy this camera won’t be on NR to complain that it’s ugly.

      • nwcs

        True, but we really don’t know how many will actually buy them. We haven’t gotten sales breakouts of the various Nikon 1 models.

  • Jon Potrero

    I’ve given up on expecting the P8000 in my lifetime…

    • phil

      It’s already here. It’s called the RX-100 and it’s made by Sony.

  • Spy Black

    Am I imagining, or is Nikon tempering themselves in (somewhat) overpricing this eunuch?

  • What’s the point

    I don’t understand the point of this S series. V3 and Coolpix P7800 are understandables, but why to make S2 because Nikon have J series for ready? What is the biggest difference between Nikon J something and this S2?

    • 5r

      Is it really that difficult to understand the point and the design? This is the simplest mirrorless camera one can buy. I’ve never seen a camera with so few buttons. Shooting as simple as can be. Not everyone wants to bury him self in settings, but many are willing to pay for bigger sensor and better optics. I personally don’t like it, but I understand it. It is a totally different case whether Nikon will succeed. Still waiting for P8000…

    • PhotoAl

      The S series has a generation older sensor compared to the J series, plus fewer buttons. This results in a lower price, which is probably the biggest difference that the target consumer of this camera is going to care about.

  • Mardock

    And it comes in lemon-yellow. That’s a-niiice…

    • nzswedespeed

      Atleast the colour represents the product haha

  • Arvid Tue Hansen

    So boring. No wi-fi??? Hello Nikon. Where are you. It is 2014!

  • nwcs

    Nikon must be very proud of this camera to price it this high.

  • Herman

    I’m not sure if I understand this correctly, but why are these cameras on yearly update schedule anyway? NOBODY, and I repeat, NOBODY would look at this and say, omg i need to upgrade to S2 from my S1, or omg I need the J4 now my J2 is so outdated. I seriously question how many people still buy point and shoots like this anyway, since I shoot weddings professionally and I see what people use to take pictures and I can assure you I see more cell phones and stupid tablets than point and shoot half the times, and not to mention if it’s a “new” camera it’s either a DSLR or a mirrorless which is like a niche thing for the guests who just bought to “improve” their photography. How many of these stupid point and shoots on the market do we need really? and isn’t it a serious waste of R&D and manufacturing money investing in small and dying markets like this?

    maybe some of you business guys can educate me on this?

  • Squidward

    No buttons, no controls to speak of, just a shutter button and the ability to load crappy pictures straight to FaceTube……yet an interchangeable lens? Really? Do Nikon think they’ll sell another lens? Will the kit lens ever be removed? Will the purchaser (there will only be one) know how to do it?
    People (girls) who shoot like this do it now with their phones. Who in the name of all that is FSM (Flying Spaghetti Monster), is going to buy this lemon?
    Nikon are loosing it. This market is dead. It died many, many years ago. Surely the D3400 is due for a refresh, or is it the D3500? What are they up to now? Nice to see a finger on the pulse Nikon.
