Nikon's new ones: the D2X, the Coolpix 8800, the Coolpix 8400, and the Coolpix 4800

Nikon hits us hard this morning:

Nikon D2X
The one for the pros, the 12.4 megapixel D2X is Nikon's followup to their D1X digital SLR and like it's predecessor is compatible with all DX Nikkor lenses and is way more camera than most people would know what to do with. Even better, there's also the WT-2A, an optional 802.11b/g WiFi adapter if you want to wirelessly beam your photos back to your PC or remotely control it from a PC on your wireless network.

Nikon Coolpix 8800
Next up is the Nikon Coolpix 8800, an eight megapixel camera with a 10x optical zoom lens and a 1.8-inch flip-out LCD screen that's the first consumer camera from them that uses their Vibration Reduction anti-shake system. Retail price: $999.

Nikon Coolpix 8400
Fairly similar to the Coolpix 8800, the new eight megapixel Nikon Coolpix 8400 has a wide angle, 3.5x optical zoom lens and a 1.8-inch flip-out LCD screen. Retail price: $899.

Nikon Coolpix 4800
Obviously Nikon couldn't introduce all these fancy new digicams without tossing out a little something for the masses, right? The Coolpix 4800 has a resolution of "only" four megapixels, but they do toss in an 8.3x optical zoom lens (it's actually the smallest digital camera with that much optical zoom), which is nice since once most consumers realize they don't need more than four or five megapixels stuff like optical zoom and lens quality is going to be become a bigger and bigger deal. Retail price: $399.
