New Nikon cameras available for pre-order through Amazon

Nikon's new line of high-end compact cameras, including the Coolpix P7000, S8100, and S80, are now available for pre-order from Amazon. All three cameras were announced earlier this week and are expected to being shipping this fall. The P7000 is seen as a direct competitor to the Canon G12, offering a 10-megapixel sensor, EXPEED C2 image processor, a special low noise night mode, and 720p video support. The S8100 is a more conventional point and shoot, with a 12-megapixel sensor and back-illuminated CMOS sensor, while the S80 features a 14-megapixel sensor and 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen. Prices for the cameras match previous announcements, putting the P7000 at $500 while the S8100 and S80 cost $300 and $330 respectively.
