Nikon Coolpix P80

Nikon has announced its new Coolpix P80 point-and-shoot camera designed for camera enthusiasts and family photographers. The Coolpix P80 boasts of a whooping 10.1-megapixel CCD image sensor and Nikon’s EXPEED digital image processing concept.

Bill Giordano, General Manager Marketing of Nikon Coolpix must have been proud of the new camera when he said:

“Nikon is proud to continue delivering the highest quality imaging products for photo enthusiasts and aspiring photographers with a broad range of creative control options and superior imaging ability.”

Do you think these goodies speak for Mr. Giordano’s claim? – 18x optical zoom, Nikon lens with focal lengths from 27-486mm (equivalent to 35mm), optical vibration reduction, various exposure mode highlighted by Sport continuos mode that allows users to shoot as many as 30 consecutive photos at 4, 6, or 13 fps, a 2.7-inch LCD monitor with anti-reflection coating, electronic view finder and many more features.

To make the Coolpix P80 even easier to use, Nikon has thrown in its user-friendly imaging innovations called “Nikon In-Camera Innovation”. This technology includes In-Camera Red-Eye Fix, D-Lighting and Face-Priority. The Nikon Coolpix will be available this month and retail for $399.95.
