Nikon has a raft of new Coolpix digicams at PMA to cover the range of shutterbugs, from "give me more options" to "just a shutter, please." For those who want some more options but just can't commit to a DSLR yet, there's the P60
. You'll get to play around with 8.1-megapixels, 15 (!) scene modes, manual mode and 5x stabilized zoom. The heart of the Coolpix lineup belongs to the compact S550, S520 and S210 models
. The S550 sports a 10-megapixel sensor and 5x zoom with electonic stabilization. The S520 has true optical stabilization attached to the 3x zoom optics and an 8-megapixel CCD. Finally, the S210 keeps the 8-megapixel sensor, but reverts to electronic stabilization. At the "easy" end of the spectrum is the L18
digicam, with 8-megapixel resolution, 3x zoom and a big 3-inch LCD; available in your choice of navy or ruby red.
