The Nikon Nuvis S is an APS film compact zoom camera with a unique design. Everything but the little flashlight window is hidden in the camera housing when it is switched off. It has to be switched on by pulling the camera body out of its steel housing. It is not the lightest compact APS camera, but may be the most robust, since it can be carried in one's pocket without a further case around it. The camera was manufactured in Indonesia by Nikon and launched in 1998.[1]

In 2000, the Nuvis S was replaced by the lighter Nuvis S 2000,[2] which is similar in design but has more plastic and a pop-up flash in place of the fixed flash. The Nikon Nuvis V has similar specification.
