Three one hundred, four one hundred, six one hundred -- ready or not, here we come. The Nikon Coolpix S3100, S4100 and S6100 are a trio of compact cameras that'll be playing hide and seek this year, featuring high definition video and a couple of touchscreens.

The S3100 is successor to the Coolpix S3000. The S4100 is a touchscreen snapper, and the S6100 packs an extra-long zoom.

The S3100 and S4100 are 14-megapixel point-and-shoot snappers, both packing a 5x optical zoom. They offer 720p high-definition movie recording with a dedicated movie record button, but no HDMI connection. Features include a smile timer, blink detection and skin softening, as well as a 'cross screen' feature, which adds a starry halo effect around bright objects.

The S4100 packs a 3-inch, 460,000-dot touchscreen, allowing you to swipe through your snaps and even take pictures with a fingertip. It comes in five colours, including red, black and livid purple. The S3100 has a 2.7-inch screen -- which shuns fingertips -- and comes in seven colours, including red, blue, pink and a very bright yellow, pictured above.

The 16-megapixel S6100 also sports a 3-inch touchscreen. It includes a 7x zoom and comes in five colours: violet, black, red, pink and silver.

The S3100 costs just £130, in mid-March. The S4100 will cost £150 and the S6100 £200, both on sale at the end of February. Click through our gallery of official pictures to seek out the three new snappers.
