Nikon's press release:

TOKYO, February 18, 2003 - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of the COOLPIX SQ Digital Camera.

The square-shaped COOLPIX SQ is a 3-megapixel-class digital still camera that combines a visually compelling, stylish design with outstanding performance. It incorporates a swivel lens that is integral to its overall design statement and optical precision.

The COOLPIX SQ is a digital camera for trendsetters and opinion leaders for whom style is a primary concern, and who are seeking bold, new ways to make a statement about their personal style.

Featuring a 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens and 4x digital zoom, the COOLPIX SQ provides excellent optical performance. The camera's exclusively developed features achieve accurate and vibrant color reproduction, fast operation and stress-free operation. The camera's 3.1 effective megapixels offer remarkable resolution, even with printouts as large as B4 size.

The COOLPIX SQ's swivel lens design offers the flexibility and creative opportunities of free-angle picture taking, including the ability to take self-portraits; it also contributes to the camera's compactness and near-professional-grade image quality. The slim rechargeable battery provides up to 65 minutes of shooting power while helping enable the sleek profile of the full-metal casing.

In addition to fully automatic operation, the COOLPIX SQ has 15 versatile Scene Modes that capture great pictures in virtually any imaginable situation. Continuous Shooting mode offers rapid sequencing and Movie mode lets users record up to 40 seconds of video with audio. Users can also shoot as close as 4cm (1.6 in.) from their subjects without sacrificing clarity and crispness.

The COOLPIX SQ comes with the COOL-STATION MV-10, a cradle that serves as a multifunctional base of operations. The battery recharges while the camera rests in the cradle. Uploading images to a computer (via USB cable) requires only a single press of the cradle's transfer button.

Many accessories accompany the COOLPIX SQ, including the compact rechargeable battery and a CompactFlashÖ Card, a USB cable, and powerful Nikon View software.

With its cutting-edge design and array of advanced, yet easy-to-use, features, the COOLPIX SQ is an exciting addition to the COOLPIX lineup that will appeal to consumers who demand that sophisticated style doesnĺt preclude high performance.
