Nikon Coolpix S3000 and Coolpix S8000 will also be announced

In addition to the P100 and L110, Nikon will also announce Coolpix S3000 and Coolpix S8000 cameras. I am still expecting more details in the next few days.

I am sorry I keep bringing up compact cameras, but I think this is what the February 3rd announcement will be about. I now strongly believe that there will be anotherΒ announcementΒ in the week after February 3rd (or maybe the week before?) that will bring the good stuff. I do not think the February 3rd date will be for Coolpix cameras and DSLRs/lenses at the same time. Last year, Nikon first announced the D300s and D3000 (July 30th) and the week after (August 4th) four Coolpix cameras were released.

  • Here is the reason why we get the Coolpix first :
    Niknon annouce the coolpix first, because when the DSLR will be announced the week after, there will be a special deal: buy one Nikon DSLR and get a Coolpix for free !
    Thank you Nikon ! We still love you !

    Well, Thom DID say 1st 2 weeks, but the waiting is driving me NUTS!

    As long as we get a 80-400 replacement, I’ll be happy. VR II, yes; AF-S, a must; Nane would be nice but not required–and does Nikon even put Nano on a prosumer lens?

    • WoutK89

      60mm macro πŸ˜‰

      • David Segura

        Dude, that just came out like a year ago, doubt they will change it this soon

        • WoutK89

          Dude, do you know how to read questions?

          “and does Nikon even put Nano on a prosumer lens?”

  • Ubiquitous

    No question about it. Nikon is going after Panasonic.

    • Cash

      exactly, But If I would have to choose, I buy Panasonic.

  • Chris P

    I am beginning to wonder if we will see a replacement 80-400, as it will probably be at least Β£1,500 and pretty soon it will be possible to buy a 70-200 at Β£1,600 and a TC20III for under Β£400.

    • WoutK89

      Yes, but you will lose still sharpness an 80-400 could bring. Plus, you will have 80mm in the short end and a wider aperture if needed πŸ˜‰

  • Lalala

    please, give me the P7000

  • rad

    Why oh why can’t Nikon figure out how to name a bloody camera? These new model names makes no sense. I bet the new DSLRs are going to be just as screwed up. With the exception of the rebels (not applicable in europe) Canon does have that down.

    • As long the next DSLR look like what I want (and need) I don’t care if they call it littlepinkpig or D799999 !

    • optimaforever

      Not to mention that in Japan the Canon EOS 350/400/450/500D are named “Kiss X1/X2”.

      “Oh my Dear,why don’t you put this 70-200 on your Kiss?”

      Lovely isn’t it? πŸ˜€

      • optimaforever


        the next Nikon could be the “Pussy 700s”.
        I don’t think this naming would be a success… LOL

        • D70

          Honda already tried that with Honda Jazz in Sweden. It had to change name to Jazz after they discovered what the original name was in Sweden. (Jazz is called Fit in some parts of the world and was orginaly called something a little longer. )

        • Cash

          I hope the pussy will come out. I’m kind of needy πŸ˜‰

  • Poisonberry

    I REALLY want a replacement for the P line of cameras. It would suck for me to have to break down (like all my friends) and buy a G11 to keep in my bag. Come on Nikon, forget the video as well and give me a compact camera with RAW and some pro features so Canon does not get my money.

  • low

    NRadmin > dont be sorry man, youre doing a great job on the rumors and even on the nonrumor front! thanks!

    • WoutK89

      Yes, we need to bite through the sour part (Coolpix) to get to the sweets πŸ™‚

  • Anonymous

    Coolpix here Coolpix there… I want dslr news NOW. πŸ˜€ lol

  • Gordon

    The big announcement for February will probably be a 18MP Coolpix πŸ˜›

    • No, it will be a 18MP FX Coolpix !

      • Dee Tee

        and $200 bucks… goodbye competition πŸ˜‰


    • WoutK89

      and ended at the same time πŸ˜›

    How about new flash ? The 800 got upgrated to 900, what about 600 going to 700 ?

    • David Segura

      Agreed, already have a SB-900 and an SB-400. I need another CLS flash and don’t want to get an SB-600 if a new one is just around the corner πŸ™

  • Anonymous

    any word on the s8000 specs? a good competitor to the g11 would be a nice announcement for me. i just don’t see how i can invest in a micro 4/3 camera and a whole new set of lenses but want better quality than your mini sensor point and shoot gives you

  • Hmm is there a possibility that there won’t be any announcements after Feb 3rd? Everyone will cry lol πŸ˜€

    • WoutK89

      Unless the announcement is all in one

    • Cash

      if they do not release new stuff, we all save money πŸ˜‰ I do not buy Shi t anymore, I want proper stuff.

  • dude

    coolpix. give it to me for free also do not want.

  • Ray

    i am actually interested in the coolpix line, since i feel my d700 has a long lifespan, like the canon g11/s90, nikon should really release a good compact camera. or i just have to be a sucker and buy the canons πŸ˜› hahaha

    another words, i would like to carry a compact for those times where i would like to be in the picture too and dont want to hand then my d700.

    • I am envious about your D700, and I am also interested in a compact. (Can’t afford to upgrade my D300). I wish for Nikon to come out with something that looks like P6000 or Panasonic LX3.

      I would REALLY love to see Nikkor and ExSpeed on a cellphone.

      • The D700 is the best DSLR I’ve seen, great results, but need more pixels, 18-24MP. (12MP is fine if you don’t go more than 8×10″)

  • I am keen on Panasonic LX3 or SE C905 cellphone, for street. But I will hold out and wait 3 months for Nikon. I love square crops & 16:9, and I love Nikon. But can’t afford to upgrade my DSLR.

  • n-ton

    Thom Hogan did it again: now he also predicts the teleconverters:

    this time only two days after the news broke here – he is getting faster πŸ™‚

    • WoutK89

      Lol πŸ˜€ Are we establishing something here?

    • Markus

      He did it again lol πŸ™‚ To base his predictions on the information of others. Whatever Thom says others said as well. I just want my D700X (his prediction) and he predicted it should not come this February in the first place…and now it are the first 2 weeks of February and no D700X! πŸ™‚

      • Grumpy

        Ehhh, we’re still in January

        • Markus

          Yes we are…Thom now predicts the first 2 weeks of February and not the coming spring as he previous mentioned.

          • He also switched to D900 after numerous reports on NikonRumors

          • litebyte

            Thom’s crystal ball is a copier πŸ™‚ A pity Jeff-C has nothing to mention as he did in the past
            The 20 MP camera which is mentioned on Nikonians sounds realistic to me.

  • Anonymous

    I hope there i some real “smoke” from these announcements, a new dslr will be a really nice addition…

  • Worminator

    If it is a new dSLR or ILS camera and not just more of the same old Coolpix I’m impressed how well they’ve kept it under wraps.

  • DX2FX

    Admin, Do you think you can get a leaked picture of D900 before 2nd February ?

  • glu

    after the overwhelming success of the 85/3.5 micro, I expect they would pull out two other genius primes:

    the 60/3.5 micro
    the 35/3.5 micro
    the 16/3.5 micro fisheye (this one I’d buy)

    all DX, so they are affordable.

    just kidding.

    • WoutK89

      No, they will come up with unusable (not wide, not long, and so on) lengths. 60mm and 35mm are quite usable, but you are right with the micro fisheye πŸ˜€

  • glu

    ^ wanted to say 3 primes… duh.

  • Darz

    any poetry fans here?

    “I want D900
    I want it so bad
    This waiting in darkness
    Is makin me mad”

  • mazun

    Am I the only one who`s looking forward to new Coolpixes? Nikon still owes me a coolpix s10 successor!!!
