Jessops exclusive S8100 released

The new Nikon S8100 has been launched as a Jessops exclusive. The 12.1MP compact has the ability to shoot 1080p HD movies and possesses a 10x optical zoom. There’s also a 10fps burst mode and a Sports Continuous mode with 120fps shooting at a lower resolution.

The Night Portrait mode operates in a similar manner to High Dynamic Range, in that it shoots for the background and foreground then combines the images for a better exposed final product. The zoom has dual stabilisation, which is both optical and electronic, and a motion detection system that alters ISO and shutter speed to compensate for camera shake.
