Nikon P5100 and P50

At the higher end of its camera upgrades, Nikon today upgraded its P-series models that straddle the line between point-and-shoot and digital SLRs. The P5100 takes the previous P5000 from 10 to 12 megapixels and draws on the new EXPEED imaging chip to reach ISO 3200 (auto-adjustable up to 5 megapixels) and improved, 12-point face detection. A new mode dial gives quick access to 15 scene presets. The camera continues to offer a 3.5X zoom lens with optical stabilization, a flash hotshoe, and support for telephoto and wide-angle adapter lenses. The P5100 is due in September for $400.

Nokin has also added a new entry to the line for hobbyist photographers who don't require the performance of the P5100; the P50 drops to 8.1 megapixels, relies on electronic image stabilization, and scraps the hotshoe while preserving the face detection and newer mode dial. It further replaces the 3.5X lens with a wide-angle 3.6X unit and will ship later than its sibling, arriving in October for $230.
