The CoolPix L110 is a low-cost superzoom from Nikon’s “L” line of consumer shooters, and while its 15x zoom is attractive, the camera’s other features are somewhat limited. For users with modest needs, the 12-megapixel L110 offers straightforward photography at a good price, but advanced shooters will quickly outgrow the L110’s minimal feature set.
The P100 is Nikon’s latest compact superzoom camera. It’s a further refinement of the P80 and P90 models that came before it, with a new backlit 10-megapixel CMOS sensor designed to improve low-light picture quality, a slightly increased 26x zoom range and--most exciting of all--full HD movie mode with stereo sound.
A dozen new kinds of point-and-shoot cameras flood electronics stores
each year, and that’s often just from a single company. To distinguish
itself, Nikon took an interesting approach with its Coolpix S1000pj.
Instead of focusing on pictures, this camera shines--literally. It can
project photos and movies on a wall so everyone can see them. We like
the concept and had fun presenting instant vacation slideshows while
still traveling. But the average quality of both its photos and its
projection make this camera purely a technoholic’s toy. Discerning
photographers and home buyers on a budget should think twice.
