Nikon CoolPix P100 Camera: Amazon taking Pre-orders

By Peter Chubb - Feb 18, 2010

We have just learned from Engadget that Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the new Nikon CoolPix P100. This camera allows you to shot at high-speed, while giving you a huge focal range, something that is not seen that much with a compact ‘bridge-style’ digicam.

The Nikon CoolPix P100 is a 12.1-megapixel digital camera and allows the user to take 10 full-resolution images-per-second, and it does not matter if the subject image is close or far away. Amazon explains that the camera can shoot up to 120 fps at 1.1MP, great for taking those fast moving shots.

Nikon have worked very hard on the technology used in the P100, this includes the amazing backside illumination, and this allows the sensor in the camera to see much more than a standard CMOS sensor.

You can pr-order your Nikon CoolPix P100 now from Amazon for just $399.95, get all the information from the link above. This camera is ideal for those who do not have the money or find the Nikon D3000 to difficult to use, which we discussed in a recent post.

  • I really love Nikon P100. In my first test last night after it arrived, I was blown away by the difference. Close shots of a ladybug on the orange tree v. zooming in on lamp posts across the street – everything was clear. I took a photo of my old car and it looked like a dealership photo. As an aside, I have no idea how the camera made the dirty car clean. I think I’ve made a right decision when I bought Nikon P100.
