Nikon Revamps CoolPix: First Tough Cam & Apple Edge

X

Nikon has strengthened its 2011 CoolPix range with a range of new models that feature Apple device connectivity, in-built projection, 3D imaging and the introduction of Nikon’s late arrival to the ‘tough’ camera pool.
The new flagship cam in the range is the P7100 which has upped the processing speeds and image quality of the P7000. The P7100 is a 10.1MP compact cam with high functionality, backed with a tilting LCD monitor.

Faster image processing comes from a new Expeed C3 processor that increases noise-reduction and makes for a quicker shooting experience. Shooting and exposure modes span across P, S, A and M, along with token automatic shooting options.

Nikon’s also waded into the crowding waters of tough digicams with its first ever weatherproof model, the AW100, sporting a similar body to the rugged Panasonic TS3 released earlier this year.

The AW100 is a 16MP camera that sets off the AW series, joining the ranks of Nikon’s L, S and P series of cameras. This new model is essentially a digital compact camera with a hard coating, featuring high quality imagery and Full HD video recording with a range of hardened, outdoor features.

The 16MP CMOS censor is backed up with 5x optical zoom, with specialised functionality like underwater modes to supplement the 10 metre waterproofing. Shockproofing from around 1.5 metre drops and a build suited to sub-zero temperatures is also thrown into the package.

For the outdoorsman comes GPS functionality more akin to a navigator than a camera, with a map display on board. There’s also an electronic compass for navigation.

 

Taking the place of the S80 is the S100: a 16MP cam that sits in a slim 18.1mm body with a touch panel OLED monitor that smooths over the rear of the minimalist body camera. The user interface has been tweaked and few handy features have been thrown on top.

The S100 can take 3D stills in similar stead to the Panasonic TA20, where the user takes two separate images which combine to create a 3D picture.

The slim cam weights 138 grams with battery and SD card in tow, and will take nearly an hour of HD video or 150 stills.

The S1200pj comes in as Nikon’s third camera with an in-built projector, but more interestingly it houses connectivity to iPhones, iPads and iPod touches to project media from the Apple devices. It can also connect to home computers to playback videos and stream projections straight from YouTube.

The new 14.1MP camera features a 40 percent increase in projection brightness and improved contrast to older models for projections of up to 60 inches. It also runs well as a camera in its own right, with ISO sensitivity up to 6400 (but with an older image-processor than the new flagship model).

 

There are two new 16MP models with the S6200 and S8200. The S8200 tops its predecessor (the S8100) with a 14x zoom on top of the previous 10x, as well as a vibration reduction function for improve zoom with less shake. The S6200 houses similar specs and features but with a shorter 10x zoom range.

Closer to the bottom rung of the new line-up is the 14MP S4150 with 5x optical zoom and a touch panel monitor, kitted with a stylish on a fairly standard set-list of functions.
