On February 2, 2010, Nikon officially launched 7 new Coolpix cameras, with rumors about more news to come shortly.
As P&S is not the main focus of this site, it suffices to say that the new cameras have resolutions from 10,4 to 14,5 Mp., an optical zoom range from 3,6 to 26x, while all include movie mode. 4 Models offer HD 720p and one – the P100 – Full HD 1080p.
I will not go in-depth on these new models, with the exception of the P100, not only because it may be an interesting DSLR back-up, but also because it introduces us to a few exiting technologies, which – although not entirely new – appear for the first time in a Nikon camera.
