The compact superzoom
party is the place to be, and while Nikon's P100
may not be the most slinky model at soiree, it's got a great personality with its 26x zoom lens, backside-illuminated sensor, HDR functionality, and the ability to shoot H.264 video at 1080p. It's also newly available at a few different retailers for you to put your money ($399) where your mouth is, most sites listing some variation on "shipping soon." Amazon is the only one brazen enough to apply a date, but it's a rather vague and general one: three to five weeks. You can wait that long for something this good, right?
