Last night Nikon announced four new Coolpix cameras:

I already reported on the Coolpix S3700, the other three camera were not mentioned on the Russian website novocert.ru - this means that Nikon may still announce new models that were not on my list for the CP+ show.

The new Coolpix cameras were not announced in the US.

Nikon-1-cameras-price-drop
With the upcoming announcement of the new Nikon 1 J5 camera, the price of the J4 model dropped today: a kit with the 10-30mm lens is now $396.95, two lens kit is $546.95 (see also the current Nikon 1 rebates at B&H). The lack of Nikon 1 V3 price drop indicates that there will not be a replacement any time soon (the Nikon 1 V2 currently sales for $399).

Several Nikon Coolpix cameras (including the P340 and AW120 models that will be replaced next month) also have new low prices.
