Nikon S9100, S6100, S4100 and S3100 debut

Continuing with a slew of camera launches, Nikon brought out four new Coolpix S-series cameras to kick off the CP+ expo. Its S9100 has the same CMOS sensor technology as underneath the P300 and P500 but puts it into a compact camera that still manages an 18X (25-450mm) zoom. It likewise shares the same night landscape, night portrait and backlight HDR modes.

The camera has a three-inch preview LCD and can muster the same 1080p video and sweep-guided panorama shooting as its P-series counterparts.

Three more traditional S-series cameras are joining the group. The S6100 is Nikon's highest-resolution point-and-shoot yet at 16 megapixels and combines it with a 7X lens along with a half as sharp three-inch but touchscreen LCD. Moving to the S4100 adopts a 14-megapixel sensor with a 5X lens, and the S3100 matches it in basic features but goes to a 2.7-inch, non-touch LCD to shrink the size and cost.

Nikon brings the S3100 and S4100 to the market first at the end of February for $140 and $180. The S6100 and S9100 appear in March at prices of $200 and $330.
