Several readers asked me if the Nikon P7100 will be refreshed in the next round of Coolpix announcements. Nikon releases point and shoot cameras twice a year, but the different models are usually refreshed every 12 months. This time around we can expect an update of the cameras announced back in February, 2011: P300, P500, S9100, L120, S6100, S3100, S4100, and L24. Later this year (usually in August) we can see new versions of the cameras announced in August, 2011: P7100, AW100, S1200pj, S8200, S6200, S4150, S6150 and S100.
Expect to see more Coolpix cameras with built-in GPS functionality.
