New Nikon P100 superzoom goes backlit CMOS, 26X and adds 1080p video
The new Nikon P100 follows up on the P90 exactly one year later, and drops the 12mp 1/2.3" standard sensor for the new 10mp 1/2.3" backlit CMOS sensor that is becoming popular with superzooms in 2010.
The camera also goes Pinocchio, from 24X to 26X, with a new effective focal-range of 26-678mm with a sensor-shift image stabilization. This also takes advantages of the new 1080p 30fps video recording mode, a new trend in superzooms, since the majority of the top models offer 720p video. This could be a feature that can generate interest for the P100.
The camera has a 3-inch tilting LCD (460K), along with an EVF, in-camera HDR, 10fps burst mode which is apparently a defining characteristic to the Sony backlit CMOS sensors.
