COOLPIX P100 (Black)

The COOLPIX P100 is a high-performance model that offers an effective pixel count of 10.3-million pixels and a 26x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a broad focal range of wide-angle 26mm through super-telephoto 678mm (35mm format equivalent). A CMOS sensor with backside illumination structure has been adopted for the image sensor for less noise in images captured at night or indoors under dim lighting when high sensitivities are used. This camera also supports high-speed continuous shooting of images at the maximum 10-MP size (3648 x 2736) at 10 fps, and offers a sport continuous mode, which allows for continuous shooting at up to approximately 120 fps*, and a function for recording high-definition movies with stereo sound.

  • *available only for image size of 1M (1280x960)
COOLPIX L100 (Red)

The COOLPIX L110 is an easy-to-use model with an effective pixel count of 12.1-million pixels, a 15x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a broad range of focal lengths from wide-angle 28mm through super-telephoto 420mm (35mm format equivalent), and advanced functions that enable users to capture images as intended. Using supplied Energizer® Ultimate Lithium AA batteries (FR6/L91), the power-efficient COOLPIX L110 is capable of capturing approximately 840 still images or roughly 7 hours of HD movies with stereo sound. The secure grip, five built-in functions for preventing or reducing blur, and Easy Auto mode, with which the user simply frames a picture and the camera automatically selects the optimum scene mode, mean that this camera reliably captures beautiful images.

Nikon COOLPIX P100 Primary Features

1.A 26x optical zoom NIKKOR lens that covers a broad focal range of wide-angle 26mm through super-telephoto 678mm (35mm format equivalent)

Equipped with an incredible 26x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, this camera supports shooting at a broad range of focal lengths with 35mm format equivalent angles of view of 26mm up to 678mm. In addition, macro shooting as close as 1 cm (0.4 in.) to the lens is also possible. When digital zoom is added to the maximum optical zoom ratio, shooting at a 35mm format equivalent angle of view of 2712mm is supported.

2.Technologies that enable excellent image quality: CMOS image sensor with backside illumination structure, Backlit Scene HDR (high dynamic range) mode, which makes the most of continuous shooting technologies, and an advanced Night Landscape scene mode

The COOLPIX P100 is equipped with a number of new technologies and functions that enable capture of images exhibiting excellent image quality.

CMOS sensor with backside illumination structure:

The camera is equipped with a CMOS sensor with backside illumination structure that increases the amount of light that each pixel receives. This enables capture of images exhibiting less noise at the high sensitivities required for night landscapes and pictures taken indoors under dim lighting.

Backlit Scene HDR (high dynamic range) mode:

A new Backlit Scene HDR scene mode has been added to enable capture of intended photographs. When this mode is selected, the camera combines multiple images captured with continuous shooting to create an image with a broader dynamic range for beautiful photos with less loss of detail in highlights and shadows, even when the subject is backlit.

Advanced Night Landscape mode:

When Night Landscape scene mode is selected, the camera automatically captures several images and then combines the images to create a single optimized photo. This allows for the capture of beautiful night landscapes that exhibit less blur and noise.

3.High-speed continuous shooting functions that enable continuous shooting of images at the maximum size (10 MP) at 10 fps and sport continuous mode, which allows for continuous shooting at up to approximately 120 fps

High-speed continuous shooting of images at the maximum 10-MP size (3648 x 2736) at 10 fps and sport continuous mode, which allows for continuous shooting at up to approximately 120 fps*, are possible. Sport continuous mode improves the chances of capturing the perfect picture with a Pre-Shooting Cache function that records up to five shots just before the shutter is released.

4.Full HD movie recording and playback functions

The COOLPIX P100 is equipped with a function for recording full HD movies with stereo sound(1080p:1920 x 1080). Movie recording can be initiated by simply pressing the movie-record button on the back of the camera. The HS movie function provides the added benefit of recording movies that can be played back in slow motion or fast motion. Movies recorded with the camera can be enjoyed in their original high-definition quality by connecting the camera to the HDMI port on a high-definition TV.

5.A 3-in., approximately 460k-dot vari-angle Clear Color Display simplifies shooting from a variety of angles

The camera is equipped with a vari-angle monitor that improves operation and increases flexibility with shooting from conventionally difficult angles. The monitor can be tilted 82 degrees downward and 90 degrees upward for simpler shooting from a variety of angles.

6.5 features that effectively prevent or reduce blur caused by camera shake and subject movement*

The COOLPIX P100 supports high sensitivities up to ISO 3200 and offers an image-sensor shift vibration reduction function, motion detection, Nikon's own BSS (best shot selector) function, and also offers a new vibration reduction that combines the image-sensor shift system with electronic vibration reduction. The secure grip also helps to reduce camera shake.

7.Smart portrait system for consistently beautiful portraits

A series of advanced functions, beginning with the skin softening function that smoothes facial skin tones and continuing with face-priority AF, the smile timer, the blink proof function, the blink warning, and red-eye reduction function, ensure consistently great portraits.
