Fall Harvest of Nikon Coolpixes: P7000, S80 and S8100

Just in time for the Fall Season, Nikon has announced several new Coolpixes; the flagship P7000 with a 28-200mm zoom reach, the enhanced S8100 with back-lit CMOS sensor and the slim-line OLED S80 compact.

The much anticipated flagship P7000 updates the professional Coolpix compact line. Nikon has reduced the megapixel count in order to improve low-light image quality, the maker's first (albeit unstated) acknowledgement that pure MP count is not the first standard by which to judge cameras.

Other features include:

  • Enhanced NRW (RAW) file format now editable by Capture NX2!
  • 28-200mm 7.1x Zoom Nikkor ED lens
  • Built-in Neutral Density Filter
  • 720p HD Video with Stereo Sound
  • EXPEED C2 Imaging Processsing Engine
  • PSAM Shooting Modes
  • Dedicated dial controls for ISO, White Balance, Exposure Comp and more
  • 5-Way Vibration Reduction
  • Optical Viewfinder
  • Artificial Horizon to ensure level shots
  • High ISO up to 6400 at full resolution
  • Built-in Intervalometer for timed interval shooting
  • Optional Wide-Angle using the WC-E75A for 21mm focal length

The S8100 updates the top-tier "Style" Coolpix line by coupling a 12.1MP Backlit CMOS sensor with a 10x 30-300mm Zoom Nikkor ED lens and a 3-inch 921K rear LCD Clear Color Display.

Other features include:

  • 4-Way VR Image Stabilization
  • Expeed C2 Image Processing Engine
  • High ISO up to 3200
  • Full 1080p HD capture with Stereo and HDMI output
  • Shoot stills while in Video Mode

The ultra-slim S80 (0.7 inches thin) brings unique and creative edit functions via a large 3.5 inch Ultra-High Resolution (819K) Organic LED rear display that not only gives access to the camera's key functions, but allows the photographer to write or draw on the image using touch controls.

Other features include:

  • 14.1 MP CCD sensor
  • 5x Wide-Angle to Tele 35-175mm Zoom Nikkor ED lens
  • 5-way Vibration Reduction System
  • High ISO up to 3200 in full resolution
  • Expeed C2 Image Processing engine
  • Built-in Slide Show with Music
  • 720p HD Movie capture with Stereo and HDMI Output
  • Sliding lens cover design that serves as Power On/Off
