new Nikon Coolpix 2100 is a compact, lightweight digital still camera with 2.0
effective megapixels and a 3x zoom lens. Also available is the Coolpix 3100 with
a 3.2 megapixel CCD.
Featuring a 3x optical Zoom-Nikkor lens and 4x digital
zoom, the COOLPIX 2100 provides excellent optical performance. Coupled with their
image-processing algorithm, Nikon say this ensures vibrant color, contrast and
clarity in every picture. The cameras 2.0 effective megapixels offer remarkable
resolution in printouts up to A4 size.
Shooting is simplified by general-use
AUTO Mode and 14 Scene Modes, four of which offer a Scene Assistance function
for perfectly composed pictures, which allow users to capture the essence of every
situation and fully experience the fun of digital photography. The COOLPIX 2100
also features Continuous Shooting Mode and four Movie Modes, including one capable
of recording a clip as large as 640 x480 pixels. Users can take up to 15 seconds
of smaller-size video in color, B/W or sepia. In Macro Mode, the camera can shoot
as close as 4cm (1.6 in.) from a subject and still get sharply focused shots.
The Small Picture function creates reduced-size pictures that are perfect
for e-mailing or Web posting, while the Date imprinting function allows users
to date a picture at the time of shooting. Image effects such as B/W, sepia and
halo filters extend users creative options.
The Quick Review button
allows images to be viewed right away on the LCD monitor while maintaining live-action
viewing. The Transfer function simplifies uploading image data to a computer.
A sister model, the COOLPIX 3100, with 3.2 effective megapixels, will be
released in tandem with the COOLPIX 2100.
