Nikon launches Coolpix S8100 with ultra-high-speed shooting of up to 54 photos at approximately 120 fps

nikon_s8100_top.jpgNikon today announced the release of the Coolpix S8100, a stylish 10X zoom model with improved image quality in photos taken in dark surroundings and excellent performance with nighttime and dimly lit indoor shooting that often results in blurred photos. The S8100’s effective pixel count is 12.1 million pixels. With a new image-processing engine, EXPEED C2, and a 10X optical zoom lens covering a broad range of focal lengths beginning at the wide-angle 30mm (equivalent with 35mm [135] format), the camera is capable of capture high-resolution photos. The backside illumination CMOS image sensor enables high-quality recording of 1080p HD movies (1920 X 1080 pixels), even in dark surroundings. During movie recording, optical zoom can be used for flexible wide-angle and close-up recording. Users can enjoy high-speed continuous shooting of up to five 12 megapixel photos with superior image quality at approximately 10 fps (at a continuous setting of “Continuous H”). In Sports continuous mode, ultra-high-speed shooting of up to 54 photos at approximately 120 fps is possible.

The Coolpix S8100 has been designed not only for a beautiful form, but also for superior operation with features such as a mode dial that allows for the smooth selection of a shooting mode and sufficient spacing on the top so that fingers do not interfere with the pop-up flash. The S8100 with approximately 102 MB memory measures 104.0 X 59.2 X 29.9 mm and weigh approximately 209 g (including battery and SD memory card).
