Nikon has just introduced several new cameras to their popular Coolpix line, including the Coolpix P5000. The P5000 has 10 effective megapixels, a 3.5x Zoom-Nikkor glass lens, an optical viewfinder and a high-resolution 2.5-inch LCD monitor with anti-reflection coating. It incorporates a new advanced image processing engine, which optimizes low light performance and color reproduction, and Nikon’s optical VR image stabilization, which compensates for camera shake. The P5000 is available next month with an MSRP of $399.95.
Nikon also added three new L or “Life” Series cameras to its Coolpix family. Designed with the casual snap-shooter in mind, the Nikon Coolpix L10, L11 and L12 have a 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor glass lens, a bright LCD and a lightweight body. The Coolpix L12 (MSRP $199.95) also features Optical VR Image Stabilization, which overcomes camera shake to produce clearer, sharper images. The “L” series will also be available next month. Look for these models as well as several other new Nikon cameras and accessories at Nikon’s PMA booth G220.
