Today, Nikon has announced three new additions to their line of COOLPIX cameras, namely the S8100, S80 and P7000. However, no pricing or availability dates for Singapore is released yet. But we’ll keep you in the loop. Meanwhile, read on for the news releases.
Tokyo - Nikon has announced the new COOLPIX S8100, a stylish 10x zoom model with improved image quality of photos taken in dark surroundings. It boasts excellent performance during night or dimly lit indoor shooting that generally results in blurred photos.
By adopting a backside illumination CMOS image sensor for the new COOLPIX S8100, significant improvements in image quality when shooting night photos have been achieved.
The camera offers a Night Portrait mode with new technologies that take advantage of the CMOS image sensor’s high-speed capability. By exposing the portrait subject and background separately and immediately combining the exposures, bright and beautiful, blur-free night portraits that exhibit very little noise can be captured, even with hand-held shooting. The S8100’s effective pixel count is 12.1 million pixels. With the new image-processing engine, EXPEED C2, and a 10x optical zoom lens covering a broad range of focal lengths beginning at the wide-angle 30mm (equivalent with 35mm  format), the camera is capable of capturing top quality, high-resolution photos.
Finally, the COOLPIX S8100 is a compact camera packed full of a variety of capabilities and functions, including high-speed continuous shooting, recording of 1080p HD movies with stereo sound, and a Creative Slider function. It is recommended for those who want to maximise their individual power of expression.
