London, UK, 24 Aug 2011 - Nikon today unveils its latest high performance COOLPIX model, the P7100. Successor to the well-received P7000, the COOLPIX P7100 offers improved image quality, reduced time lag, faster autofocus speeds, and quicker start up times. A new tilting 7.5 cm (3-in.) LCD monitor makes it easier to compose images and capture attention-grabbing movies when shooting from unusual angles or tricky vantage points.
The perfect compact companion for any enthusiast D-SLR photographer, the COOLPIX P7100 guarantees superb images thanks to a wide-angle 7.1x zoom NIKKOR lens with 28mm to 200mm range (35mm format equivalent), RAW file format, fast EXPEED C2 processing system, quick response and full manual controls. The large 10.1 effective megapixel 1/1.7” CCD sensor facilitates wide dynamic range and exceptional low light performance, and lets you crop creatively, capture outstandingly detailed images, and produce stunningly-sharp poster-size enlargements.
Nicolas Gillet, Product Manager for Consumer Products at Nikon Europe, comments: “The COOLPIX P7100 is a compact master. Those familiar with the P7000 will recognise this camera’s commitment to putting the user in control, with front and rear command dials and customisable zoom memory that lets you preset up to 7 different focal lengths and then switch quickly between them, as if using interchangeable lenses. We think that the new features, such as the tilting screen and faster response times, will make this the camera of choice for D-SLR like operability with superior mobility.”
