In addition to the P300, Nikon also announced the COOLPIX S6100 last week.  It boasts a 7x optical zoom, a 3-inch 460k dot LCD touchscreen and a massive 16 megapixel sensor.  It also captures 720p HD video.  The F-stop ranges from 3.7-5.6 and it can focus in on objects as close a 1.2-inches. Other features include a 3200 ISO, 4 way image stabilization, and an SDXC card slot.  Nikon says a single charge can produce up to 210 images or 3 hours of video.  It weighs 175G and measures 98 x 58 x 27mm.

The S6100 will be available this March for $199.95 in silver, black, red and violet.  You can preorder it now from Amazon.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
