Nikon recently announced three additions to their popular Coolpix line of digital cameras - the Coolpix S8100,  the P7000 and the S80.

With the S8100 Nikon offers a  12.1‐megapixel backside illumination CMOS sensor to provide consumers, as Nikon explains, “with enhanced performance and outstanding image quality for high‐speed shooting and low‐light conditions.”

Nikon adds that the S8100 is fast, responsive and versatile and also features a 10X zoom and HD (1080p) movie capability. To help capture moments that are gone in an instant, the COOLPIX S8100 not only features high‐speed shooting at five full resolution frames at up to 10 frames‐per‐second (fps), but a pre‐shooting cache that
records up to two shots before the shutter‐release is fully pressed.  For extremely fast action shots, the S8100’s Sports Continuous mode records up to approximately 120 fps. 

With Subject Tracking, the S8100 automatically tracks a designated subject by activating autofocus (AF), enabling the user to capture the best moment confidently. The S8100 also adopts Nikon’s exclusive EXPEED C2TM image processing engine, which is customized to each Coolpix model to further drive enhanced performance, image quality and HD video.

Nikon refers to the new P7000 as “the ultimate compact camera that’s ready to take on most any photo assignment. At home in a pro’s gadget bag or in the hands of a spirited enthusiast, passionate photographers of all levels will benefit from the P7000’s high performance, extensive manual controls, stunning image quality and
advanced shooting functions.”
The 10.1‐megapixel Coolpix P7000 features a large 1/1.7” CCD sensor coupled with a 7.1x Wide Angle Optical Zoom‐NIKKOR ED Glass Lens. Taking Nikon’s commitment to image quality a step further, the P7000 adopts Nikon’s new EXPEED C2TM high performance digital image processing engine to, “ensure high‐ quality pictures with stunning color and sharpness.”

With the S80 Nikon explains they have integrated stylish design with intuitive operation, while adding a bright 3.5‐inch ultra high resolution organic LED (OLED) touch screen with an enhanced interface for a more enjoyable user experience.
With a user‐friendly interface, the Coolpix S80 gives the photographer easy touch control over the camera’s key functions for smooth operation, including touch shutter shooting, zoom and playback.  To help users better compose their photos, the S80 employs tab‐type graphics to maximize screen space without cluttering it with icons.  When the camera is rotated for vertical shooting, display tabs and controls also automatically rotate for smoother shooting.
