Here are a couple of pointers aimed at helping you make the "right" choice.
Feb. 2, 2010. Nikon officially launched 7 new Coolpix cameras, with rumors about more news to come shortly. In this article we take a peak at the top of the line P100, and discuss back side illumination CMOS technology, launched in this very camera.
