Nikon has bolstered its three compact ranges, adding eight new models to its portfolio.

Heading the new models is the company?s P5100, which updates the P5000 launched in February. The model adds two extra megapixels, bringing the effective count to 12.1, while also featuring Nikon?s EXPEED image processing engine. The same 3.5x optical zoom remains, as does Nikon?s Vibration Reduction technology.

A further model in the P series has also been launched. The P50 boasts a 28mm wideangle zoom lens together with an 8MP sensor and Electronic Vibration Reduction. Powered by AA batteries, the camera sits between the P5000 and Nikon?s entry-level models, also offering a maximum ISO of 2000 and the company?s D-Lighting technology.

Nikon?s L and S ranges benefit from the addition of two and four new models, respectively. The L14 offers a 7MP sensor together with a 3x optical zoom, and claims to have the world?s longest battery life for a 3x zoom compact*. The company claims that with the supplied pair of Energizer batteries, 1,000 shots may be taken with the camera. The L15 meanwhile benefits from Nikon?s Vibration Reduction and 8MP sensor, also featuring a 2.8in LCD screen.

The S51 and S51c models follow their previous wave-shaped S models, and offer 8MP sensors, 3in LCD screens and EXPEED processing engines, with the S51c model also offering Wi-Fi connectivity. The S510 and S700 models complete the new releases, with former featuring Vibration reduction and a maximum ISO 2000, as well as an 8MP sensor, and the latter offering a 12MP sensor and 2.7in LCD screen.
