There are nine new Nikon Coolpix models in all shapes and sizes, headlined by an updated Wi-Fi model.
In the lead up to the festive buying season -- formerly known as Christmas -- there'll be nine new Coolpix models landing on our shores. The newborns range from basic models running off AA batteries to everything-bar-the-kitchen sink units. There's even a model with built-in Wi-Fi.
These compact models all sport 3x optical zoom lenses and some form of non-digital image stabilisation. But the hero model is a Wi-Fi capable S51c, a replacement for last year's S50c. It may be a little ahead of its time, though, as hen's teeth outnumber free Wi-Fi hotspots in Australia. And there's no stripped-down Web browser to allow users to sign-up for the services that are currently available in capital cities.
New to the P-series are these two very black units. There's the P50, which features a wide-angle 3.6x optical zoom lens, and the P5100, which boasts a 12.1-megapixel CCD sensor.

Nikon has replaced the entry level models in its Coolpix range. Both the L14 and L15 are powered by two AA-batteries, with the L15 featuring an 8-megapixel sensor and optical image stabilisation.
