Nikon goes budget rugged with S30, adds L810 and L26

Nikon Coolpix S30, L810, and L26 appear

One more set of Coolpix updates from Nikon on Tuesday has focused on the budget end but included a new category of camera for the company. The S30 is one of the least expensive rugged cameras yet and can take going underwater, down to 9.8 feet, or drops of up to 2.6 feet. Its lens shoots at just 3X but is self-contained to minimize the impact.

Details are scant, but the 10-megapixel camera focuses on simple controls while supplying HD (likely 720p) video.

Two L-series cameras join the ranks. The L810 has a 26X (22.5-585mm equivalent) image-stabilized lens, 720p video, and a 921,000-pixel three-inch display that's unusually detailed for the class. An L26 model has a more modest 5X (26-130mm) lens and the same 720p video, as well as a three-inch LCD that may be lower in resolution.

Each of the three cameras ships in February. Both the L26 and S30 cost a basic $120; the L810's optics raise the price to $280.

    Battery doors

    Research problems with the battery door on the L2X cameras... They have cheap latches, and will eventually fail.. My sons L24, which was reluctantly replaced once by Nikon after a few emails, now has a battery door held shut with duct tape..

    I will never buy anything else from Nikon..
