Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the five new COOLPIX S-series models that incorporate advanced functions in a stylish design.

The Nikon COOLPIX S9100, which establishes a new branch in the S-series lineup, is a high-performance model equipped with a slim new 18× zoom lens and a backside illumination CMOS sensor that effectively suppresses noise in photos taken at high sensitivities.

What's more, the camera also offers support for recording of full-HD movies.

The Nikon COOLPIX S6100 is successor to the S6000 and offers the same technologies for capturing beautiful, blur-free photos of difficult nighttime scenes that made the S6000 so popular.
