The AW100 is Nikon’s – late possibly – entry into durable compacts. It features a 16mp CMOS sensor, 5x zoom, 10m waterproof and 1.5m drop proof. The Coolpix P7100 is the replacement for the P7000 and has a 10mp CCD with 7.1x zoom and can shoot in RAW. The S1200PJ is the new projector camera with a brighter projector, 14mp CCD and 5x zoom. The Coolpix S100 is 16mp CMOS sensor with 5x optical zoom and available in pink. The S6200 and S8200 come with 10x and 14x zooms respectively. Both sport 16mp sensor. The S4150 is a touch screen 14mp marvel with 5x zoom and the S6150 adds a 7x zoom and 16mp to the touch screen. That is about it.
