Nikon Rolls Out Coolpix S8100 for Fast Action Shots

The new Nikon Coolpix S8100 is a 12-megapixel, 10x zoom compact camera than can shoot up to 10 frames per second. It also boasts 1080p HD movies.

Nikon says the S8100 features high-speed shooting at five full resolution frames at up to 10 frames-per-second (fps); there is also a pre-shooting cache that records up to two shots before the shutter-release is fully pressed. For extremely fast action shots, the S8100’s Sports Continuous mode records up to approximately 120 fps.

“Our portfolio of compact digital cameras is designed to equip photographers of any level with the features and functions they will need for various shooting situations in a portable, compact body,” said Bo Kajiwara, director of marketing, Nikon Inc. “The COOLPIX S8100 blends superior high-speed and low-light performance with a sleek and stylish design for a camera that is not only ready to go when you are, but one you are proud to show off.”

The Coolpix S8100 will be available in late September for $300, retail.
