Nikon Unleashes Eight New Coolpix Cameras, “Pro” Model Still in Hiding

Nikon did launch a new Coolpix camera today — eight of them, in fact — but the rumored “Coolpix Pro” mirrorless camera was nowhere to be found. The bevy of compact cameras hits store shelves next month, and includes the P7100 — a more polished successor to the P7000 announced around this time last year, and Nikon’s answer to Canon’s G-series line of prosumer compact cameras. The 10.1MP camera features a tilting 3-inch LCD screen on the back, manual controls, 720p video, and RAW capabilities. It’ll be priced at $500.

Here are some of the other interesting compacts announced today:

If you’re the outdoorsy type, you might be interested in the AW100. The 16MP camera shoots 1080p HD video, comes in camouflage, is waterproof, shockproof and freeze-proof, and has a built-in GPS, electronic compass, and world map. It’ll cost $380.

The 14MP, 720p capable S1200pj has a tiny 20 lumen projector built into the front of the camera, and can instantly connect with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to project their displays. Will have a price tag of $430.

All the other compact cameras aren’t too unique — they pack between 14-16 megapixels and offer different strengths/features such as in-camera editing, effects modes, fast focusing/shooting, a small form factor, panorama modes, etc… The I Am Nikon blog has a good breakdown of the different features of the eight cameras.

Nikon mirrorless, where are you?

    Being able to connect directly with Ipad/Iphone is a cool feature, why not build that into all cameras?

    Oh, the connection is used to project what’s on the iPad/iPhone displays, so the feature only makes sense for cameras that have built-in projectors. Clarified that in the post, thanks!

    That camo one is rad, except the fact that it’s camo.  If you’re hiking and you drop it, camo surely won’t help you find it.  They should’ve made it a bright color.
