Nikon has announced the introduction of its first SLR-style super-zoom camera for nearly four years. The new Coolpix P80 features a 10.1-megapixel 1/2.33-inch CCD with sensor-shift image stabilisation, an 18x zoom lens with a focal length equivalent to an impressive 27-486mm, a 2.7-inch 230k LCD monitor and maximum sensitivity of 6400 ISO.

The P80 is aimed at photography enthusiasts and has aperture priority and manual exposure options, as well as a range of automatic functions including face detection, D-lighting and in-camera red-eye correction. It looks like it could be a very interesting camera, competing with the likes of the Panasonic FZ18, Olympus SP-560UZ and Fuji S8000fd.

The Coolpix P80 will be available from April 25th, at a recommended retail price of £299.99


The other new announcement from Nikon is actually twins. The Coolpix S52 and S52c are virtually identical apart from the inclusion of WiFi wireless connectivity on the S52c.

Both cameras feature 9.0-megapixel resolution, 3x zoom with optical image stabilisation and a 3-inch wide-view LCD monitor, all packed into in a stylish wave-shaped metal body.
