Nikon Announces Coolpix 5900 and 7900 Digital Cameras

Nikon announced Wednesday two new compact Coolpix digital cameras with either 5.1 or 7.1 megapixel imagers.

The new additions to the Coolpix family are the 5.1-megapixel Coolpix 5900 and the 7.1-megapixel Coolpix 7900.

Imaging Resource described the cameras as: "Both cameras -- at 5.3 ounces -- share a similar body with a Zoom Nikkor ED 3x optical zoom lens, 2.0-inch LCD display, Secure Digital and 13.5 megabytes of built-in memory for storage, USB connectivity, and switchable NTSC/PAL video output."

Both cameras have Nikonis Rey-Eye Fix technology to correct red eyes, 16 scene modes, and have NikonÕs new Face-priority AF function that ensures an accurate focus when shooting portraits by automatically sensing the presence of a human face within the frame and setting accurate focus accordingly.

The Coolpix 5900 will go on sale in March for US$349.95, while the Coolpix 7900 will follow in April for $449.95.
