0600 EST: 0600 UTC: Nikon has today announced the Coolpix 5000. This all new five megapixel, three times optical zoom digital camera marks the new prestige in the Nikon line. It's all metal (magnesium alloy) body and stylish lines make it extremely distinctive and professional looking. Don't be deceived by the looks this camera is smaller than you would think! In this article (part two of two) we have press photos of the image as well as some exclusive shots of a pre-production unit we have in-house.

TIMEZONE: Note that we had been told that the embargo time was 0600 EST but it turns out that at 0600 UTC several other sites (including Nikon Japan) have published full Coolpix 5000 info.
