Nikon treated us to lunch on the South Bank last week, and gave us a chance to fondle the ten new Coolpix compacts announced recently. It's a tough job, but some poor schmuck's got to do it.
So say hello to the L11, L14, L15, S200, S51, S51c, S510, S700, P50 and P5100. They all boast face detection and in-camera red-eye reduction, as well as D-lighting function. This adjusts the settings for different parts of a picture so exposure is correct for lighter and darker areas.
All compact camera life is here: 6-, 7-, 8- and 12-megapixel counts, extended battery life, sensor-shifting vibration reduction, big screens, metal bodies, and even -- whisper it -- Wi-Fi.
