The new models push the super zoom category with the longest zoom in a COOLPIX camera (60x) and feature a new threshold in wide apertures (f/1.8), plus additions to the rugged all-weather line. Budget conscious COOLPIX fans will also have a prime candidate in the new COOLPIX S32, which hits the streets at below $130 (USD) retail while adding waterproof and shockproof functionality.
