A year later in March 2010, the camera was replaced by the P100 model. The notable improvement in the P100 is the use of a CMOS image sensor with claimed better light sensitivity and less noise, but with a lower 10 MP resolution.[1]

FeaturesEdit

It is a 12-megapixel CCD digital camera with a fixed 24× zoom Nikkor ED glass lens giving more than twelve times image magnification fully extended.

Vibration reduction (VR) image stabilisation.

The camera has a three-inch (76 mm) LCD display that may be folded 45 degrees downward and 90 degrees upward to facilitate shooting above-the-head or low-to-the ground images as well as traditional waist-level and eye-level viewing. The electronic eyelevel viewfinder has the same resolution as the LCD display.[2][3]

Most of the features otherwise are carried over from the P80 model.
