New Nikon Coolpix S8100
Sep 8, 2010

Nikon has released the new Coolpix S8100 which replaces the S8000. This compact ultra zoom camera features a back-illuminated CMOS sensor, which allows for high speed continuous shooting, plus Full HD video recording.

Seems to be a very nice pocketable travel and sports camera full HD video (1920 x 1080, 30 fps) with stereo sound.

Any opinions? (or is everybody busy with the P7000 ;-))
