Nikon unveils Coolpix P7000 with stereo mic jack, plus S8100, S80
Tuesday, September 7, 2010 | by Rob Galbraith
Nikon has unveiled three new compact digital cameras. Leading the pack is the Coolpix P7000, which is perhaps Nikon's strongest answer to date to the popular Canon PowerShot G series. In a body that's reminiscent of the G11, the P7000 features a 10.1MP sensor, 28-200mm (equivalent) zoom, ISO 100-6400 standard ISO range and a 720p/24fps video mode that can record audio through an external stereo mic connection.

We had a brief opportunity to check out the P7000 earlier this month. The control layout is good, including the ready access it gives to ISO, exposure compensation and white balance through dials on top, rear LCD screen quality is great and the ability to connect an external mic - a rarity in this class of camera - is a nice touch. The lens can be zoomed and focused during video capture as well.

The Coolpix P7000 is to ship in late September at a manufacturer's suggested list price of US$499.95 in the U.S.

The Coolpix S8100, a 12.1MP camera, can capture up to five full-resolution still pictures in succession at 10fps, or at 120fps at a lower resolution, and offers in-camera high dynamic range (HDR) merging as well as 1080p video recording. The Coolpix S8100 is to ship in late September at a manufacturer's suggested list price of US$299.95 in the U.S.

Rounding out the trio is the S80, a 14.1MP model with an OLED touchscreen. The Coolpix S80 is to ship in "fall 2010" at a manufacturer's suggested list price of US$329.95 in the U.S.
