New Nikon L and S Coolpix

Countering Canon's Fall 2006 camera line, Nikon today announced five new cameras in its point-and-shoot Coolpix line. At the entry level are the L5 and L6: the former is a 6 megapixel camera with 5X optical zoom, while the latter sports a 7.2 megapixel sensor and long 1000-shot battery life (though it only offers 3X optical zoom). Also unveiled were the ultra-compact S7c, a 7.1 megapixel camera with image stabilization; the more basic S9 with 6 megapixels, 2.5-inch LCD, and no stabilization; and lastly the S10, which features the 6 megapixels and 10X swivel lens of the previous S4 but adds image stablization and better ISO ranges. All five Coolpix models will be ready to ship in September in time for the Photokina expo. Click through for photos of the L5, S7c, and S10.
