According to the latest Nikon survey of compact digital camera users, the most common complaint is the inability to take the intended pictures of dark or dimly lit scenes due to blurring or the loss of background details and atmosphere when the flash is used. In response to this complaint, Nikon is working to achieve even greater improvements in image quality and power of expression with shooting in dark or dimly lit situations.

By adopting a backside illumination CMOS image sensor for the new COOLPIX S8100, significant improvements in image quality achieved with technologies for shooting beautiful nighttime photos have been made. In addition, the camera offers a Night Portrait mode with new technologies that take advantage of the CMOS image sensor's high-speed capability by exposing the portrait subject and background separately and immediately combining the exposures. This enables capture of bright and beautiful, blur-free night portraits exhibiting very little noise, even with hand-held shooting.

The Nikon S8100's effective pixel count is 12.1 million pixels. With a new image-processing engine, EXPEED C2, and a 10X optical zoom lens covering a broad range of focal lengths beginning at the wide-angle 30mm (equivalent with 35mm [135] format), the camera is capable of capture high-resolution photos.

The COOLPIX S8100 is a compact camera packed full of a variety of capabilities and functions, including high-speed continuous shooting, recording of 1080p HD movies with stereo sound, and the Creative Slider function. It is recommended for those who want to make the most of their own power of expression.

The new Nikon Coolpix S8100 has a price of $299 and is available for pre-order on Amazon.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
