Nikon has released the Coolpix P80, a high-performance compact camera with a 10.1-megapixel CCD image sensor, its Expeed digital image processing concept and an 18x optical zoom Nikkor lens.

The P80's 18x zoom lens covers focal lengths from 27 to 486mm (35mm format equivalent), has a light-sensitivity range up to ISO 6400, and comes equipped with optical vibration reduction capabilities to stabilize images.

The P80 offers Programmed Auto, Shutter-Priority Auto, Aperture-Priority Auto and Manual modes that enable users to tap into the creativity of D-SLR functions while maintaining the simplicity of Coolpix functionality. Users can also activate the Sport Continuous mode to shoot as many as 30 consecutive pictures at four, six, or 13 frames per second. The P80 also uses Nikon "in-camera innovations," such as Red-Eye Fix, D-Lighting and Face-Priority autofocus.

The P80 features a 2.7-inch LCD monitor with antireflection coating and is SD/SDHC compatible. The digital camera comes packaged with Nikon's Coolpix Software Suite and supports PictBridge. The suggested retail price is $399.
