Nikon Coolpixes: The Rest

Posted by Lee Yuan Sheng in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 12:30 PM

So, Nikon's also spamming the retail channels with a bazillion cameras. Et tu, Nikon? Since we have a lot of cameras to cover, I am going to try with a different format in presenting them.

S9100 (pictured above) - 12 megapixel CMOS sensor - 18x 25-450mm equivalent f/3.5-5.9 lens - sensor shift stabilisation - 3" VGA LCD - 1080p 30 FPS video with optical zoom - Ships in March for US$330

S6100 - 16 megapixel (sigh) CCD sensor - 7x 28-196mm equivalent f/3.7-5.6 lens - 3" HVGA touchscreen LCD - 720p 30 FPS video - Ships in March for US$200

S4100 - 14 megapixel CCD sensor - 5x 26-130mm equivalent f/3.2-6.5 lens - 3" HVGA touchscreen LCD - 720p 30 FPS video - Ships in late February for US$180

S3100 - 14 megapixel CCD sensor - 5x 26-130mm equivalent f/3.2-6.5 lens - 2.7" QVGA touchscreen LCD - 720p 30 FPS video - Ships in late February for US$140

L120 - 14 megapixel CCD sensor - 21x 25-525mm equivalent f/3.1-5.8 lens - sensor shift stabilisation - 3" VGA LCD - 720p 30 FPS video - powered by 4 AA batteries - Ships in late February for US$280

L24 - 14 megapixel CCD sensor - 3.6x 37-134mm equivalent f/3.1-6.7 lens - 3" QVGA LCD - VGA video - powered by 2 AA batteries - Ships in late February for US$120

They are all pretty good looking cameras, even the budget L cameras, though the lenses are a bit slow (f/6.5 on the long end for the S4100 is ewwww). The S9100 also picks up the panorama feature from the P series cameras. I guess whoever is supplying the software to Sony originally is now selling them to all the camera OEMs. Despite that, I can't seem to shake a sense of disinterest. Maybe it's because I expect a lot more from Nikon, and the last few years of mediocre Coolpixes have tarnished the brand enough in my mind that these batch of Coolpixes are docked a few points off in my mind.

Photos of the rest after the break.
