We’ve seen the Fall 2011 offerings for Canon and Sony already, the only logical next step would be to take a look at the new Nikon offerings. The Nikon cameras number three in total, all for the COOLPIX consumer camera family. To get straight to the point the new cameras include the Nikon COOLPIX AW100, Nikon COOLPIX P7100, and Nikon COOLPIX S1200pj.
When you look at the images of the three new cameras it’s clear to see they each target different groups of camera buyers. The Nikon COOLPIX AW100 is for outdoor photographers in need of a tough camera, the Nikon COOLPIX P7100 is for a prosumer (professional consumer), and the Nikon COOLPIX S1200pj is designed for casual photographers looking for special features (in the S1200pj’s case the built-in projector would be the special feature).Below you can check out the promo videos for each camera, the main camera features for the three in text-form, and the release dates and prices for each.
