Nikon updates its compact camera lineup

Seven new flavors to choose from

 

Nikon has launched a bunch of compact cameras in almost every segment, so let's take a quick tour of the magnificent seven.

Image

The Coolpix L14 is an entry level mode with a 7.1 megapixel sensor, 3X zoom lens and a 115k pixel 2.4 inch LCD. The MSRP is £129.99, it will be available in silver, blue and pink.

Image

For £129.99 you can also go for the L15, which offers an 8 megapixel sensor, 3X lens, hi res 2.8 inch 230k pixel LCD and optical image stabilization. We have no idea why these two models cost the same, since the L15 is a much more serious machine.

Image

The non protruding lens S series has been updated too. The S51c/S51 models have a 7.99 megapixel sensor, stabilized 3X lens and a 3.0 inch LCD. The S51c features Wi-Fi, and that's about the only difference compared to the regular S51. The W-Fi version will cost £229.99 and the plain S51 is priced at £199.99.

Nikon claims its Coolpix S510 is the smallest digital camera with optical image stabilization on the market. At 88 x 51 x 22 mm and 125g it really is a midget.  It has a 3X zoom lens, and 8.1 megapixel sensor and a 230k pixel 2.5 inch LCD. It will cost £199.99.

Image

The Coolpix S700 is a high end compact camera. The compact all metal body looks damn good and very elegant. It has a 3X zoom lens, a 12 megapixel sensor and a 230k pixel 2.7 inch screen. Nikon's all metal 12 megapixels will set you back £279.99.

Image

The Coolpix P50 offers a wide angle 28-102mm equiv. zoom lens, an 8.1 megapixel sensor, 2.4 inch 115k pixel screen and an optical viewfinder. Available in silver or black, it will cost you £199.99 and will ship in autumn.

Image

Last but not least, Nikon's new compact flagship, the Coolpix P5100. Like the others, it also uses Nikon's new EXPEED image processor, a 12.1 megapixel sensor, stabilized 35-123mm zoom lens and a 2.5 inch hi res screen. It will cost £299.99 and be available sometime in Autumn 2007.

All cameras, apart from the P5100 and P50, will be available in September.
